Universal Audio announces the Neve 1073 plug-in
Universal Audio announced the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. The Neve 1073 channel amplifier is easily the most revered preamp and EQ circuit ever designed. Introduced in 1970, this hallowed class-A, transistor mic/line amp with EQ epitomizes the beautiful "Neve sound". In 2006, Universal Audio released the Neve 1073 and 1073SE legacy plug-ins, which quickly became a staple for in-the-box mixing and mastering engineers worldwide. Now, UA's team of engineers have improved upon the original and incorporated - for the first time ever - all 10 clipping points from the preamp and EQ circuitry, as well as Unison technology integration with the award-winning Apollo and Apollo Twin audio interfaces. The result is the all-new Neve 1073 plug-in - an end-to-end circuit emulation of the original Neve 1073 console channel that delivers its trademark grit and harmonically rich class-A saturation. Available for purchase for $299 US ($149 US for owners of the legacy Neve plug-ins), the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection also includes the legacy Neve 1073 and 1073SE 'DSP light' plug-ins and is part of the new UAD Software v7.7.

Universal Audio releases Chandler Guitar Amp plug-in
Universal Audio Direct Developer partner Brainworx has released three plug-ins for the UAD platform and Apollo audio interfaces - available for purchase for $199 US each, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier, bx_refinement, and bx_saturator V2 plug-ins are part of the new UAD Software v7.6 release. Available exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo-equipped workstations, the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in is an exacting emulation of the dual EL84-powered boutique guitar amp. Inspired by British classics such as Vox and Marshall - and lesser-known gems from Watkins and Selmer - the plug-in offers features not found on the original hardware, such as an FX Rack with an onboard noise gate, host-syncable lo-fi delay, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls. The bx_saturator V2 plug-in is a powerful multi-band M/S processor that allows users to add saturation, drive, and distortion; while the bx_refinement plug-in allows mixing and mastering engineers to remove the harsh, hard edges of their tracks without dramatically altering the character and tone of their source material.
