Universal Audio announces the release of UAD Software v9.4. Alongside the new UA-developed Empirical Labs EL8 Distressor plugin, this latest software release also offers plugin titles from UA’s direct developer partners.
Developed by Softube and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Dytronics Tri-Stereo Chorus plugin is an exacting emulation of the rare, three-channel dream machine favored by ’80s L.A. session royalty — including Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, and Dann Huff. The Dytronics Tri-Stereo Chorus plugin gives you all the expansive depth of the original’s three independent bucket-brigade delay lines, along with new “plugin-only” features, for tracks dripping with lush vibe and character.
Get thick analog chorus from three bucket-brigade delay lines, simultaneously on a single source
Craft rich, swirling analog chorus textures on guitars, keyboards, bass, synths, and more. Sculpt lush modulation sounds with Preset or Manual mode, each with its own LFO waveform output
Use Preset and Manual modes together to craft your own signature chorus tones
Developed by Brainworx and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Gallien-Krueger 800RB Bass Amp is an exacting emulation of the solid-state bass amp used by artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, No Doubt, Guns n’ Roses, and more. Famous for its bi-amplified operation and DI output, the Gallien-Krueger 800RB quickly became an industry standard for countless bassists, touring bands, and backline companies.
The Gallien-Krueger 800RB plugin emulates the original hardware’s bi-amplified architecture, providing two different power amps — one for the lows and one for the highs. An adjustable crossover allows you to control which frequencies go to which power amp, and each has a master volume knob, making it easy to dial in just the right amount of bass or bite.
Developed by Townsend Labs for the Sphere L22 microphone and available exclusively for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Ocean Way Microphone Collection plugin captures the “best of the best” from Allen Sides’ mic locker at Ocean Way Studios.
Featuring 12 microphones from Neumann, Sony, RCA, AKG, and more, the Ocean Way Microphone Collection in conjunction with the Sphere L22 mic lets you change the proximity effect and polar pattern in realtime or at mixdown, as well as reduce bleed, room coloration, and feedback — before or after tracking. You can also mix two different mic models together for recordings that capture the characteristics of both microphones.
