Universal Audio Releases Antares Auto-Tune Realtime Plug-In for UAD-2 and Apollo Platforms


Fuchs Train II Amplifier and Eden WT800 Bass Amplifier also released as part of UAD Software v9.2


SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • May 16th, 2017 — Universal Audio is pleased to announce the release of UAD Software v9.2. Alongside the new UA-developed SSL® 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection and Pure Plate Reverb, this latest software release also offers plug-in titles from UA’s direct developer partners.






Legendary for its vocal enhancing and creative applications, the Antares Auto-Tune effect revolutionized vocal production and has become a must-have tool for the modern music producer’s toolkit.

Developed by Antares and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Antares Auto-Tune Realtime plug-in offers genuine low-latency Auto-Tune effects popularized by the likes of Cher, Daft Punk, and Kanye West, as well as subtle, realtime pitch correction.

When combined with an Apollo audio interface, Auto-Tune Realtime provides the lowest latency in the industry for Auto-Tune pitch correction. With Realtime UAD Processing via Apollo's Console application, Apollo users can use Auto-Tune without the processing latency inherent in native systems.


Antares Auto-Tune® Realtime Plug-In — Key Features:

  • Realtime Auto-Tune® pitch correction for Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 hardware
  • Ultra low-latency on stage or when tracking in the studio
  • Realtime MIDI control of target notes during performances
  • Vibrato, Humanize, and Flex-Tune controls for natural-sounding pitch correction
  • Includes Artist Presets from Mike Dean, Jess Jackson, and Dean Coleman







Developed by Softube, the Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier plug-in is endorsed and authenticated by Eden, and is an expert emulation of the modern classic bass amp that has remained a staple of countless pro players including Mike Rutherford of Genesis and Mike Gordon of Phish.

Available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces — the Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier plug-in also features Unison™ technology for Apollo interfaces. This means an Apollo user’s bass pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into an Eden WT800 — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.


Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier Plug-In — Key Features:

  • Exacting emulation of legendary Eden WT800 bass amp
  • Endorsed and fully authenticated by Eden Amplification
  • Offers 1x15 and 4x10 cabinets with four separate mics per cab
  • Unison technology for Apollo interfaces offers authentic tone, touch, and feel of original Eden WT800 bass amplifier thanks to impedance matching
  • Available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces







    Developed by Brainworx and officially endorsed by Fuchs Audio Technology, the Fuchs Train II Amplifier plug-in expertly captures the late Ken Fischer’s iconic and rare Trainwreck amplifier sound, with its harmonically rich clean and crunch tones and aggressive rock and roll character.

    The Fuchs Train II also features Unison™ technology for Apollo interfaces. This means an Apollo user’s guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into a Fuchs Train II — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces


    Fuchs® Train II Amplifier Plug-In — Key Features:

    • Exacting emulation of the original “Trainwreck-inspired” Fuchs Train II
    • Endorsed and fully authenticated by Fuchs Audio Technology
    • 100 Recording Chains with multiple speaker cabinet impulse responses

    • Unison technology for Apollo interfaces offers authentic tone, touch, and feel of original Fuchs Train II amplifier thanks to impedance matching
    • Available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces
