Ocean Way Studios Plug-In

Ocean Way Studios is an audio processing breakthrough — combining elements of room, microphone, and source modeling so your tracks sound as if they were recorded in the legendary studios of Ocean Way. Over three years in the making, Ocean Way Studios features Universal Audio’s proprietary new Dynamic Room Modeling. This technology, paired with the world famous mic collection and guidance of Allen Sides, gives Ocean Way Studios a shocking level of sonic realism.


SPL® TwinTube Processor Plug-In

Musicians and recording professionals have long employed classic SPL TwinTube hardware for its ability to make vocals and instruments pop, emphasizing select harmonics to add warmth, presence and dimension without impacting dynamic range. Today SPL delivers an authentic plug-in version of this world class tube processor for the UAD-2 and Apollo.


Sonnox® Oxford Inflator Plug-In

A longtime  secret of mastering pros, the Sonnox Oxford Inflator increases the apparent loudness of your mix, without audibly affecting quality or reducing dynamic range. The proven answer to today’s heavily compressed, "louder-is-better" mixes, the Inflator boosts perceived loudness without the pumping and over-saturation commonly associated with compressors. It’s a must-have mastering tool.
