— Now Available in the UA Online Store as Part of UAD Software v9.0 —
Universal Audio is pleased to announce the release of UAD Software v9.0. Alongside the new API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in, this latest software release features two exclusive new plug-ins for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Chandler Limited Zener Limiter and the A/DA STD-1 Stereo Tapped Delay.
Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by Softube, the Chandler Limited Zener Limiter plug-in is an exacting emulation of the high-end hardware. Inspired by the iconic EMI TG limiters and rare RS168 from Abbey Road Studios, the Chandler Limited Zener Limiter is an evolution of the limiters used to track Pink Floyd and The Beatles, now reimagined to work in a modern context with a greatly expanded range and new settings. Softube emulated the Zener Limiter’s circuits end-to-end, including its filter inductors, germanium transistors, transformers, and circuit nonlinearities.
