Overview

1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier Plug-In

Ultra-Fast Attack Time and Classic FET Style Compression of the Original, Now in a DSP-Optimized Plug-In

The 1176SE is derived from the 1176LN. Its algorithm has been revised in order to provide sonic characteristics similar to the 1176LN but with significantly less DSP usage. It is provided to allow "1176LN-like sound" when DSP resources are limited.

    “It may seem indulgent to have three 1176 compressors at your fingertips, but UA have picked variants with very distinctive flavours, and they sound more polished and ‘analogue’ than ever.”

    Paul Vnuk, Jr.

    (Recording Magazine)

    "This sweet collection of 1176 flavors is easily the new crown jewel in Universal Audio's plug-in lineup."

    Matt Houghton

    “More wonderful-sounding and faithful software recreations of classic analogue outboard from Universal Audio.”

    Glenn Rosenstein

    (Ziggy Marley, U2)

    "Needless to say, the 1176, both the LN and the SE, they're definitely go-to plug-ins for me."

    Possédant le LN, je n'utilise que très peu celui-ci. Moins chaud et précis dans son travail que le grand frère ! … Read More

    Lighter But Just As Good
    by C. Kohl (Monday 14 April, 2014)

    I have a hard time telling the difference between what this plug is doing differently compared to the LN version. However, as a rule of thumb I will only use it if I am running low on DSP power. In most cases you will not need to use this, but it is really great knowing there is a powerful tool on a … Read More
