    Universal Audio 1176 LN (low noise) compressor

    The compressor has a field effect transistor (FET) that uses as a voltage-controlled variable resistor as oppose to a opto, or VCA type compressor. The ratio options are 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, or 20:1. You also have the option of pressing combinations of buttons to provided different responses as well.
    There have been many revisions of the 1176 since it came out. Model C included a low-noise circuitry which later in Model D

    My favorite piece of gear, end of story

    by J. Nathaniel . 5 out of 5 stars

    I own a 6176, an LA2A (all amazing pieces of gear) but the 1176 is my all time favorite UAD product. It just works every time. It delivers punchy vocals for rock and I can drive it super hard, yet it's always musical.

    A true classic!

    My Favorite Compressor/Limiter of ALL!

    I do own the Vintage Silverface UREI Blue Badged Red Off Button Version - which I find is particularly good on soft ballad vocals....

    It is my favorite SWEET Limiter & is also good as an Over-Compressed sound effect on Drums etc...

    Awesome on Electric Bass Guitar & Soft Ballad Vocals with a Low Comp Ratio & awesome sound just through the box even with Compresor OFF.

    I don't like Compressors much anymore except as an effect or light dynamics controller or over-compressed effect - But I LOVE this COMP/LIM & I couldn't live without it! One of the best investments I have ever made... ;-)

    Thank you Universal!

    Radio ready for vocals

    by l. manosalvas. 5 out of 5 stars

    The ua plugins of this version are really nice and very useful, but once you hear the real deal trust me you'll see why the hype of this specific and legendary piece of gear. Buy one if you have a pro studio set up dont waste your money if you only have a computer and two monitors!
