Overview
Analog Classics Bundle

 

The Analog Classics plug-in bundle features hallmark compressors like the Legacy LA-2A and 1176, plus classic EQs like the Legacy Pultec EQP-1A and Pultec Pro. There’s even a versatile channel strip and reverb to get your tracks in shape, fast. The Analog Classics Bundle is included free with the UAD-2 SOLO/DUO PCIe cards, and the UAD-2 Satellite DUO Core.

1176SE/LN Classic Limiting Amplifiers (Legacy)
Get classic, ultra-fast FET compression from the world’s most recognized compressor. The 1176 will impart punch, presence, and character as well as its signature distortion overtones on drums, vocals, guitars, and bass. The 1176SE and its later LN version have graced countless recordings, from Led Zeppelin, the White Stripes, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Pultec Pro Equalizers (Legacy)
Universal Audio’s Pultec Pro Legacy plug-in combines the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, two of the most sought-after hardware EQs, into a single plug-in. The MEQ-5 EQ section allows you to boost and cut midrange bands with the same silky smoothness and personality of the original hardware while the EQP-1A imparts warm analog character to a single track or an entire mix — even when bypassed.
Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveling Amplifier (Legacy)
With its gentle, program dependent optical compression and meticulously designed tube amplifier, the LA-2A is the go-to compressor for professional mixers around the world — especially for vocals. Incredibly easy-to-use Peak Reduction and Gain controls give you the ideal optical compression sound for vocals, bass, drums, and more.
CS-1 Precision Channel
Featuring the EX-1 EQ/Compressor, the DM-1 and DL-1L Delay Modulators, and the RS-1 Reflection Engine, the CS-1 Precision Channel provides all the tools you need for recording and mixing in one simple plug-in. With a unique smoothing algorithm for all controls and DSP conserving bypass switches built-in, the CS-1 packs a whopping punch into a small package.
RealVerb Pro
RealVerb Pro is a flexible, natural sounding reverb that is based on our own unique set of algorithms. Allowing you to design the room just as you hear it, the RealVerb Pro goes beyond the barriers of simply big/small or dark/bright, giving you our trademark, distortion-free, smoothing diffusion control and an ultra-long reverb tail.

    “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."

    The Glitch Mob

    "We use the [UAD] Pultec plug-in a lot because we dull things out, then warm them up. For synth sounds that we really want to chop through the mix, we add the Pultec to give some boost on the top."

    Fab Dupont

    (Shakira, Santigold)

    “The [UAD] Pultec Pro, along with the Plate 140, are the two main reasons why I can't work without a UAD-2 card in my system.”

    Paul Smith

    (Dengue Fever)

    “Whether it’s the pro version with additional features, or the good old original, the [UAD Pultec] plug-in sounds so damn sweet.”

  • Matt Houghton

    Sound on Sound

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

    Paul Moak

    (Third Day, Matthew Mayfield)

    "The mix REALLY came to life when i strapped the Pultec-Pro and the Fairchild [plug-ins] across the bus."

    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."

    Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

    "With UAD's Pultec EQs, you can really crank the top end without it sounding artificial or displeasing."

    Ivan Barias

    (Mary J. Blige)

    "The UAD LA2A is the first thing in my vocal chain. It brings unmatched attitude to lead vocals & sets the tone for songs."

  • Hector Delgado

    (Jay-Z, Ledisi)

    "On Vocals, I always use an LA-2A to a SSL E Series Channel Strip to an 1176LN to a Precision De-Esser. They're amazing."

    Jim Dalrymple

    (The Loop)

    "[I use] the Fairchild Compressor, Neve 1081, Neve 1073, LA-2A and the 1176 Compressor. They all give you something different."

    Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton)

    "I use an 1176 as part of my signal chain on basically on all my channels."

    Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton)

    "You cannot make a classic rock record, in my mind's ear, without an 1176 on the snare drum."

    Vance Powell

    (The Raconteurs)

    "The 1176 [plug-in] sounds like my F revision 1176. I could switch my F in & out and not really notice a huge difference."

  • Elliot Scheiner

    (Aerosmith, Queen, Steely Dan)

    "The only plug-ins that I use are the Universal Audio emulations of the 1176 and LA2As."

    Gary Paczosa

    (Allison Krauss)

    "[The UAD-1] makes my job easier because I know exactly what I'm going to get when I pull up any of the plug-ins."

    Ross Hogarth

    (R.E.M, Keb' Mo, Ziggy Marley)

    "The LA-2A plug-in is the closest thing to my analog version that I have found.”

    Gareth Jones

    (Erasure, Mogwai)

    "I use the LA-2A plug-in a lot. I love it on pianos. Obviously it hasn't got noise, it's got color and that's what's so great about it."

    Ariel Borujow

    (P-Diddy, TI, Black Eyed Peas)

    "[The LA-2A plug-in] has become my go to compressor for lead vocals and acoustic guitars. This is the closest I've come to a hardware compressor."

  • Gareth Jones

    (Grizzly Bear, Depeche Mode)

    "Mixing Grizzly Bear's Veckatimest, we used all UA gear we could get our hands on - 1176s & LA-2As of course."

    Charles Dye

    (Pro Sound News)

    "The Universal Audio UAD 1176LN and LA-2A compressors do a great job of capturing the character of the older gear."

    Mike Clute

    (Pro Sound News)

    "UA not only captured the sound of the LA-2A, they captured how it interacted and behaved under differenent conditions."

    Mike Clute

    (Pro Sound News)

    "Smooth & silky top-end, and fat, warm bottom end ... the [Pultec] plug-in is as much of a joy to work with as the original"

    Mike Clute

    (Pro Sound News)

    "The emulations [of the 1176 and LA2A] are absolutely incredible."

  • Adam Fuest

    (Future Music)

    "Needless to say, if I came across a [hardware] Pultec that sounded like the UAD version, I would be very happy with it."

    Adam Fuest

    (Future Music)

    "The [EX-1] compressor has a very manageable, ‘classic’ sound and leaves every generic plug-in... in the dust"

    Bill Stunt

    (Recording Magazine)

    "[RealVerb] is the real deal when it comes to virtual “verb.” … The depth of field is what sets it apart."

    Bill Stunt

    (Recording Magazine)

    "The [EX-1] EQ has a particularly nice high end that is effective at introducing the much sought-after 'air' effect"

    Jason Blum

    (Remix Magazine)

    "The CS-1 is one of the most comprehensive channel-strip plug-ins available."

  • Jeff Rona

    "It [CS-1] just did what I needed it to do. The EQ and Dynamics are generally the best ones we've ever worked with.”

    Dweezil Zappa

    (Zappa Plays Zappa)

    "I really like the Pultec Pro. I use it pretty frequently on at least 85 to 90 percent of the stereo mixes."

    I Am A Believer!
    by D. Young(Wednesday 25 March, 2015)

    I've used quite a few LA-2A's in my day and I was super skeptical when purchasing this plugin.... It didn't take long before i saw its core power! This compressor became my permanent compressor for my vocal chain when tracking/mixing in the box. Male, Female, low voice, a high nasally… Read More

    Excellent compressors for any application
    by D. Young(Wednesday 25 March, 2015)

    Wow, these 1176 that come equipped in the Classic Limiter Plugin Bundle live up to all the hype. I have used a ton of Universal Audio and love both hardware and software versions. Whether is tracking/mixing (or both with the Apollo) vocals, a snare top, or an acoustic guitar this compressor… Read More

    Very good plugin which finds use in every production i do. Works good on a lot of sources: vocals, snare, room mics, guitar, horns. Use it a lot for parralel compression too. It's not as magical as my hardware 6176, but to me it's a wonderful plugin. Really want to demo the 1176 mkII too,… Read More
