    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!

    Sound Quality

    Ease of use


    Bang for buck (slightly overpriced)

    Overall: 4.25
    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!
