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.

  • Computer Music Magazine

    “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

    Sound on Sound

    “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."

    This is a classic limiter for sure!
    by P. Meeks (Thursday 29 January, 2015)

    The SE Limiter, is very classic indeed. I have used the hardware analog version, many many times in studios. It's got such a rich, warm, smooth, operating sound. No matter what I put it on it was outstanding. I find after using this plug-in for quite a while now, it operates and sounds… Read More

    Sweet free plugin
    by J. H (Monday 5 January, 2015)

    Aside from the updated 1176 plugs, you wont find a better 1176 than this UA legacy plug. Very useable and versatile compressor. I gave it 4/5 because the newer versions are just too good. Read More

    1176 SE CLASSIC LIMITING AMPLIFIER PLUGIN
    by Y. Elgohary (Monday 22 December, 2014)

    This product is great for smoothing out transients and bringing out 3rd party harmonics when pushed I have also used the hardware of this plugin and can honestly say that there is not a lot of difference (if any) between the digital and analog versions. A brilliant all round plugin in my opinion. Read More

    Initial SE release was noble, LN more desireable
    by R. Harris (Wednesday 13 August, 2014)

    The UA efforts paid off in the LN legacy for my needs (on vocals) but the SE suffices when I'm running short on DSP...always a hurdle. Read More
