Really enjoying this filter. The drive is very useful to add distortion and the filter LFOs are great for adding movement / rhythm to different parts. The "self-resonance" isn't so realistic (compared with analog filters). Still, a great addition to the toolbox.
I've always been a fan of Moog synthesizers, I currently use Ableton Live and VSTs and the UAD plugins in conjunction with some outboard gear. I do alot of filter automation on my tracks and was looking for something that had more character than the built in filter so I gave the Moog filter for the UAD a shot and I love the sound, it is fun to tweak and has a lot of options, I use it on everything from drums to synths to acoustic instruments and voice. One other bonus of this plugin id that is has a sweet Overdrive section with that additional 20db boost option, this filter plug can actually be used as a nice little distortion box.

I love this filter.
It gives me a similar feel to when I feed a source thru my MiniMoog Model D.
But in addition to the legendary sound of these filters, it gives you a handful of DAW friendly features (LFO sync, full automation etc.)
This gives me the confidence to put large sections of music thru it knowing that it will have a lush Moog analogue sound, and at the same time I am able to fully manipulate it within my digital environment.
Also it just looks perfect.
At first I was hesitant about this but for sound design its fabulous
I Love the Filter with the LFO FX.
I use it in Electronic, Dance Grooves, Leads and Chords.
The Moog gives me more room fx in the sequence.
Great, please more FX in this group.
This is a great plugin...it really adds a layer of processing that was unachievable by any other means. I own a Moog voyager now and had a Moog model 12 modular back in the day. This plug emulates the low pass filter of the Moog spot on and with the variety of triggering options and tempo sync it is a very powerful plug.
1. Perfect filtering like analog
2. Powerful sounds with Drive
This is must have for electronic music production, as it mentioned everywhere, and it's really true. Tryed demo once, and ended up bying this thing.
We own a hardware SE-1X, but it's pain in ass everytime route it as filter, so using this plugin is much simplier and useful! Sound ? It sounds close enough to Moog HW products, when you not using extreme settings. This is software, and like all other UA products, it doing it's job pretty well. 1 more satysfied customer here ! )
I'm a big Moog fan, I used to have a lot of their gear, but now I'm down to just one Moogerfooger and a Little Phatty, but this plugin makes up for it and keeps me from having to do any routing/patching just to use a filter. It sounds great and is a spot on replication of the Moog filters, plus more. I use it all the time and the option of a less CPU-intense version makes it even more useful.
Very good moog filter material!
Applications for impecable session drums and synth filter, transparent with its soft and natural!
A must have for dance music production !
Clear sound and incredible quality effects !
This product is amazing.
Filter section and LFO works really well for me.
And finnaly its works now in Stereo also.
I Love This One.
Wonderful creative tool and one of the best sounding filter plugins.
Simply to have, especially if you are electronic music addicted.
Yesssss !!! For Psy-Prog Trance artists this is a must filter! Use it for kick and bass and you will fall in love with it! 5 stars can't describe how awesome it is!
I will not be able to afford a voyager anytime soon, this is doing a very good job of keeping me entertained until that awesome say when I am however. Heavy DSP and Light DSP versions for you to make the choice on. Great tool if you really want to distort the heck out of something or if you're just a fan of that crazy Moog randomness. A must have for electronic musicians.
Ein schönes Filter Plug'in um statische Sounds in Bewegung zu versetzten oder auch gut geeignet um Filtersweeps zu erzeugen.
This Plug-in is a beast ! Running audio through the plug-in also adds some magic warmth to the signal !
I really don't think there's a better plug-in filter out there than this one, and I was definitely impressed by how close it sounded to my Minimoog's in several tests, but I ended up not getting it because it still didn't quite match the sonic beauty of a true Moog filter, especially in extreme settings. This was another case (like my RE-201 review) where I was looking forward to supplementing my hardware with the plug-in version for ease-of-use, but I just can't bring myself to do it since routing things out through my Minimoog sounds appreciably better to me. I would say that Universal Audio is about 95% of the way there, which is really impressive, but if you're looking for that true Moog sound, the Moog MF-101 is only $100 more than this plug-in (or even sometimes the same price used).
You can hear the differences for yourself here:
THE best sounding software filter. Absolutely INCREDIBLE clarity and analog quality. It self-oscillates and offers drive that adds non-linear distortion (and sucks up a lot of DSP!) and REALLY crunches up the source material. It's EXTREMELY versatile both as a distortion plugin and as a filter (in LP, HP or BP modes). MUST HAVE!
If you do electronic style music, you need this one. I always use the SE-version, as the standard takes up too much DSP-power. The filters do great impact on every signal, but can also be used to just liven up a boring bass or synth line a bit.
