Just like the real deal

In school we had only one 1176, and we used it to death. Nearing the end of my 2 year term we tested the UA 1176 vs the real one, it took us a while to dial it in but then there it was, all the squash and timber of the real one!!! This is all the proof I need, let me explain. I'm getting to the point that I'm NOT going to buy the hardware anymore, emulation has won and like it or not staying in the box for project studio's has its advantages !!! I'm a lover of tubes and warmth and since I'm 58 I really love vintage stuff, but the cost and upkeep and lack of variation has left me with a money vs quality issue. UA plug ins have solved this quandary. They are that good, and putting them on the track in console is the way to do it!!!!

Closest You'll Get To The Real Thing

Every 1176 compressor plugin is slighlty different. Some are clearly trying to mimic the analog gear as truly as possible, others are doing that as well as adding their own flavor, presets, ease of use. That being said, no matter how good you are with the plugins CLA-76 or something like that, they always fall slightly short of the real thing. This UAD 1176 plug is the untouchable. I didn't love the legacy bundle, but these sound, feel, and react like the real thing!

Dat 1176 doe!

I have a very dynamic voice and one that usually lacks definition. I was looking for a compressor that would allow my voice to pop out and add some clarity, so I did a shootout between the LA2A mk2 (which I love) The Summit tla100 (slow attack setting), fair child and the tube-tech cl1b (all plugins). This was a blind shootout, all compressors level matched and GR matched (1176 on slowest attack). Out of all of these compressors, the 1176 rev e was not only the clearest and warmest sounding but it had the most transparent sounding dynamic control out of all the compressors. 5 out of 5 times I chose the 1176 in the blind shootout. Not only great on vocals but is a swiss army knife of compressors. I am very happy with my purchase!

A small step for....

Now we're talking, a compressor that sounds and works like a compressor. I would give it 5 stars, but I'm sure you will improve on it in a year or five.

A definite must

I never did like the original 1176 on vocals, but the blue stripe works magic on vocals. I got the bundle just for the blue stripe (at $99, it's a no-brainer). Looking forward to finding uses for the other ones.

They are all amazing for the group channels, and sometimes for the master line as well. The best sound I ever heard in software. Really happy with this collection.
Best Regards

Useful Upgrade

I started using the legacy 1176 and I had been hesitating to upgrade to full collection
Well, I don't regret.
As I'm used to go to Rev A for drums, and like Blackface for anything, I recently re-discovered Slow Attack mode from AE revision. Working wiith a lead track which doesn't fluctuate dynamically too much , it will magically and smoothly sit the voice into the mix.

I no no longer use my 76 hardware !

This is simply stunning ! I already own 2 x 76 clones yet once I bought the 76 collection they never get used it's so easy to just load up across multiple tracks and get to working !
As much as it pains me to say I also think the software sounds better so my hardware 76 are now just rack spacers!
