Overview
Realtime Analog Classics Bundle

 

The Realtime Analog Classics plug-in bundle contains the essential UAD Powered Plug-Ins to get you started tracking and mixing with the world's best analog emulations, including guitar and bass amp emulations from Softube, as well as UA’s groundbreaking 610 Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in.
The Realtime Analog Classics Bundle is included free with the Apollo Twin SOLO/DUO.
UA 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ
The 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in will impart your tracks with the same legendary warmth and character of the classic hardware unit used to track everyone from Duke Ellington to Coldplay. By emulating the entire signal path, including tube amplifiers, transformers, and circuit nonlinearities, the 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in injects glowing detail and saturation to any signal — whether you’re re-amping or tracking through the 610-B via Universal Audio’s breakthrough Unison™ technology — the first and only way to truly emulate classic analog mic preamp gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level behaviors at the input stage.

Softube Amp Room Essentials
Featuring two plug-ins — the Amp Room Half-Stack and the Bass Amp Room 8x10 — Amp Room Essentials gives you guitar and bass tones that can deliver the goods in any genre. Based on a Marshall JCM800, Amp Room Half-Stack yields legendary slabs of molten distortion while Bass Amp Room 8x10 offers powerful tones and features like a blend-able DI. Both plug-ins tout adjustable mic placement for fine-tuning your tones whether you’re recording in real-time or re-amping.

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 gives 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 Channel Strip 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 ultra-long reverb tail.

    (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge)

    "It blows my mind that I'm looking at a screen and the UAD 610 plug-in sounds like the analog device I grew up with. There is nothing on these pieces of gear that I would need to go back to analog to get, that I couldn't have, just by using the plug-in."

    Jacknife Lee

    (R.E.M, The Cars, Snow Patrol)

    "Now that I have the Unison feature, I feel bad for my 610 hardware. It's so easy to use and it sounds the same. You turn one up and turn one down and it sounds good."

    Mark Linett

    (The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, Los Lobos)

    "I've never heard anything that didn't sound amazing going through my 610 modules and consoles. The fact that the 610 is now be available as a UAD plug-in and on the Apollo is just stunning.”

    John Paterno

    (Robbie Williams, Badly Drawn Boy, Bonnie Raitt)

    "The UAD 610-B preamp plug-in gives me the size and feel of a great tube preamp/channel strip, in a design that allows me to use it anywhere, at any time, and at any point in the recording process.”

    John Nowland

    (Neil Young, Merle Haggard, Maze)

    “The UAD 610 emulations retain the character, warmth, and naturalness of the hardware. You can use the plug-in confidently and know that you've got a good representation of what one of the modules would actually do for you."

  • David Ryan Harris

    (India Arie, Natasha Bedingfield, Guy Sebastian)

    “The Apollo preamps are super clean but I miss the control you have with the 610 upfront because it adds a personality that I really like. The Unison technology gives the Apollo yet another dimension of control and sound.”

    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.”

    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."

    Paul Vnuk, Jr.

    (Recording Magazine)

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

    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."

  • 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."

    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."

    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."

    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.”

    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."

    Elliot Scheiner

    (Aerosmith, Queen, Steely Dan)

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

    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)

    "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."

  • 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."

    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)

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

    Bill Stunt

    (Recording Magazine)

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

  • 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."

    Having this technology at your fingertips is inspiring.
    by K. Balazy (Tuesday 18 March, 2014)

    Amazing, the addition of the unison technology and the 610-B Tube Preamp to the Apollo interfaces has been yet another solidifying factor in continually making me know that going with Apollo for my interface was beyond worth it. Warm smooth beautiful, really a winner. … Read More

    Super usable & sonically interesting preamp "emulator"
    by D. Schroader (Friday 14 March, 2014)

    I put "emulator" in the title but I don't really feel like I'm using an emulation when I pull this plugin up, it just feels and sounds natural ..it's a natural extension of the simple but extremely competent preamp already installed in the apollos .. It's a different color and a usable one at that. … Read More

    THE 'sound' I remember, thank you
    by C. \'Max\' Mileski (Thursday 13 March, 2014)

    As an Apollo owner, I was VERY happy to receive 1/2 of the UA610preamps plugin: UA610'B'. About 10 years ago I had a small recording studio, primarily centered around my UA 2-610 pres. Everything went through those 1st. I was young, poor with an appetite 4 sonic excellence. But life's funny, I'd som … Read More

    Game Changer
    by J. Mathews (Monday 10 March, 2014)

    Connect your Strat to the Apollo HIZ input and dial in just the right amount of gain from 610-B and you'll understand how much of a game changer this technology really is. I've put the 610 B as the first link in my chain and EVERYTHING got warmer , bigger and wider. It plays well with ANY plugin dur … Read More
