Universal Audio Welcomes TC Electronic as Direct Development Partner

UAD Powered Plug-Ins Platform to Feature Collaborations with Legendary Manufacturer of Guitar, Bass, Music Production, and Broadcast Tools

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • March 12, 2014 Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and production software, is proud to welcome TC Electronic as a direct developer for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform — widely regarded as the software platform of choice for audio production professionals.

This partnership will bring TC Electronic’s legendary tools for music production to users of Universal Audio’s UAD-2 DSP Accelerators and award-winning Apollo audio interfaces.

Based in Denmark, TC Electronic is part of the TC Group, which includes Tannoy, TC-Helicon and Lab.gruppen among others. In the early ’80’s, TC Electronic’s landmark stompbox, the SCF Stereo Chorus Flanger, set the standard for guitar effects with its unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio and rich, lush modulation sounds. In the subsequent years, TC Electronic became one of the industry leaders in road-tested multi-effects rack units such as the Finalizer and countless reverb tools. In recent years, the Danish company has introduced revolutionary technologies — including the TonePrint concept and loudness-based metering and processing.

“We are excited to bring our products to the vibrant and growing UAD platform,” says Thomas Valter, Vice President of Business Management, Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic. “We’re impressed with Universal Audio’s commitment to the quality of the software available for UAD-2 and Apollo, and looking forward to be a unique addition to their plug-in offerings.”
