New UA Reviews and Awards
The 2-1176 Twin Vintage Limiting Amplifier is featured on the front cover of the July issue of Recording Magazine, with an in-depth review and some typically beautiful Recording photos.
"The 2-1176 is another unqualified success for Universal Audio. It is a beautiful piece of gear, and (much like the 6176) is easy to use in every application. It also sounds exceptional."
-Darwin Grosse, Recording Magazine, July 2004.
We have also recently revamped uaudio.com with a complete list of PDF or linkable reviews for every UA product, so don't take our word for it! You can now conveniently read the entire independent web and magazine reviews for a given UA product from one reference page.
The UAD-1 recently won a 2nd Platinum Award for the Project Pak from Future Music Magazine (UK) who called it "...the digital audio equivalent of Viagra!" Check out this new review and the comprehensive historical reviews for UAD-1 on our website.
Now... you can finally throw away those hand-scrawled recall sheets, post-it notes and napkins! We now have some nice new PDF recall sheets generated from the original silk screen art, so for all those that still like to keep a good old-fashioned paper backup of the session settings of their analog gear - we have you covered! These are also provided in the documents section for each product along with the user manual & brochure.
New Additions to UA's Historical Archives
For all those that like to keep an eye on current UA Trade events around the world or like to check out UA historical memorabilia, we are constantly expanding our company gallery.
Of particular note is the downloadable PDF of an original 1967 full-line Universal Audio Product brochure and price-list which vintage enthusiasts will love.
