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!

Ease of use
Bang for buck (slightly overpriced)
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
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!
This is my first piece of analog gear. It truly is a wonderful addition to my studio. Sweet sound!
Like the title says.... as soon as I ran some audio through this baby I just new I found the last piece of my puzzle. Been producing at home for 20Yrs and I can't believe its taken me this long to try one. Recommend Recommend!!
I have used the 1176LN hardware for about a year now and it has breathed new life into my mixes and recordings. Its great on just about everything, a real work horse.
