Overview
Realtime Analog Classics Plus Bundle

 

With the Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, you not only get legendary compressors such as the Fairchild 670 Legacy and EQs like the Pultec EQP-1A Legacy, but also stunning guitar and bass amp emulations from Softube, as well as UA’s landmark 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in. The Realtime Analog Classics Plus Bundle is included free with the Apollo DUO/QUAD, and the Apollo 16.
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.
Fairchild 670 (Legacy)
The world’s most coveted compressor, the classic Fairchild 670 tube limiter will give your tracks and mixes unmistakable tube warmth and character. Whether you’re looking for subtle compression on a lead vocal, or grittier textures that can work on guitars, bass, or a drum bus, the Fairchild 670 plug-in will add a classic “glow” to anything you run through it.
UA Precision Enhancer Hz
Expertly dial-in your music’s low-end frequencies with the Precision Enhancer Hz plug-in. Able to yield exacting results with minimal adjustment, the Precision Enhancer Hz can add weight to kick drum samples, fatten up a synth bass, or simply make the low-end of your tracks more audible on smaller speakers.

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.

    Sound On Sound

    "In use, I found the [Precision Enhancer Hz] plug-in to be more natural-sounding than similar products on the market."

    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.”

    Niko Bolas

    (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."

    Ryan West

    (Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Kanye West)

    "I find that I can use the [UAD Fairchild] 670 plug-in on parallel drum buses in lat/vert mode to enhance the tone, add depth, and control the stereo image in ways that no other plug-in can."

  • Darrell Thorp

    (Beck, Radiohead, Charlotte Gainsbourg)

    “Are your drums, bass, guitars, and vocals lacking a little vibe? Grab the new UAD Fairchild 660 or 670, turn the input knob up, watch the meter dance, and listen to how much life your song has now.”

    Steve Levine

    (Culture Club, Beach Boys, Ziggy Marley)

    "The much sought after Fairchild 660 and 670 are now accessible to UAD/Apollo users, allowing them to enjoy an audio treat that had previously only been available by a select few artists and producers."

    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.”

    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.”

    MusicTech Magazine

    "Although there are plenty of passable emulations available, Universal Audio's skills at analogue modeling are ably demonstrated here, delivering a near-perfect software replica for a fraction of the cost of the original hardware."

  • 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."

    Peter Mokran

    (Christina Aguilera, The Flaming Lips)

    “I'm blown away. [The UAD Fairchild Collection plug-ins] perfectly model not only the compression behavior, but the actual sound. This is a big step forward.”

    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."

    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."

  • Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

    "The UAD Fairchild compressor, just like the original device, is an absolute winner."

    Garrett "Jacknife" Lee

    (R.E.M., The Cars)

    “The UAD Fairchild 670 is beautiful on drum subs, mix buss, and pretty much anything else you can throw at it. It's got a smoothness that's hard to beat.”

    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."

    Eddy Schreyer

    (Oasis Mastering, Prince))

    "[I choose] the Fairchild 670 Compressor for its clean, controlled compression."

    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."

    Ryan West

    (Kid Cudi,T-Pain)

    "[The Precision Enhancer Hz] generates excitement not just at the center frequency, but also at the octaves above and below"

    DJ Rap

    "OMG. Finally. [The Precision Enhancer Hz] does—with the turn of a knob—exactly what I spend HOURS trying to get my synths to do!"

  • Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

    "The UAD Fairchild compressor, just like the original device, is an absolute winner."

    Aziz Ibrahim

    (Simply Red, The Stone Roses)

    "The Neve 33609 & Fairchild 670 compressor plug-ins are my favorites. They really seem to fix things for me."

    Ryan West

    (Kid Cudi,T-Pain)

    "[The Precision Enhancer Hz] is another one of those voodoo boxes that will get used often."

    Ryan West

    (Kid Cudi,T-Pain)

    "I used [the Precision Enhancer Hz] on a wimpy bass sound. Just a little fiddling with it and I got a great tone."

    Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

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

  • DJ Rap

    "It's all about the low end and the Precision Enhancer Hz brings clarity to sine waves that usually gets lost unless you're sitting on the sub."

    Aziz Ibrahim

    (Simply Red, The Stone Roses)

    "I found that the Precision tools on the UAD were awesome ... they really hit the nail on the head."

    Frank Filipetti

    (James Taylor, Rod Stewart)

    "Compared to the Waves & Bomb Factory emulations, it's [UAD Fairchild 670 plug] in a whole 'nuther league."

    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)

    Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton)

    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.”

    Matt Knobel

    (Lenny Kravitz)

    "With the others, you have to work all day ... With the UAD, you put it on and it sounds like a Fairchild."

    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

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

    Mike Clute

    Adam Fuest

    (Future Music)

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

    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
