Universal Audio announced new UAD Software v7.8 for its UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Version 7.8 also introduces two new Softube-developed plug-ins: Valley People Dyna-mite ($199 US) and Tonelux Tilt EQ ($99 US).

Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ plug-in allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves. With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track. [source]
