Universal Audio Releases Avalon VT-737 Tube Channel Strip
— UAD Software v9.11 features the hit-making channel strip that defined the sound of modern pop, hip-hop, and R&B —
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 14th, 2019 — Universal Audio is proud to release UAD Software v9.11 featuring the Avalon VT-737, a precisely-modeled plug-in emulation of the modern-classic channel strip that has been lending polished, class-A tube character to hip-hop, R&B, and pop hits for more than 20 years.
The dominant player in modern chart-topping productions, Avalon's flagship VT-737sp channel strip is the best-selling standalone channel strip ever made. From Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, and Wiz Khalifa, to Babyface, Beyoncé, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, and more, the VT-737sp delivers consistently polished results, with radio-ready gloss and detail.
By first mirroring the preamp impedance and unique front-end characteristics of a hand-selected VT-737sp “golden unit”, UA’s team of elite engineers then captured the target hardware's class-A tube amplifier section, LED-style optical compressor, and discrete four-band EQ — giving users all the textures and sonics of the legendary hardware, right in their DAW.
Available exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces, and fully endorsed by Avalon Design, the Avalon VT-737 Tube Channel Strip plug-in captures the entire hit-making essence of the channel strip that defined the sound of modern music.
