Best 1176 Emulation out there!

Tested these extensively against other emulations of this classic compressor and UAD blows the rest away. I've never been fortunate to own the hardware model so can't say if it matches to the real thing but I can say it sounds absolutely mind blowing! My only criticism is that it it's quite DSP hungry.

Sonido 1176 real

Estoy sorprendido de lo fiel que son estos plugins comparándolos con mis unidades hardware.

Da miedo lo que puede conseguir la gente de UAD hoy en día con sistemas digitales. Impresionante.

Uno de los mejores compresores de la historia

Es quiza el compresor mas utilizado en hardware hoy en dia , un clasico . de este pluggin de uad me gusta su tratamiento al comprimir las señales , siento que no es un proceso tan "lineal" como en otros compresores que haya probado, el color y la pegada que aporta son unicos . su combinacion con un LA2A en serie siempre funciona . es sin duda una de las compras mas acertadas que puedes hacer en este sitio.

It is awesome

1176 modeling plugin is released much by the companies, but I think that UAD is the best.
This plug in reproduces a sound of the hardware faithfully.
It is splendid that this sound is got without a cable.

Classics for a reason and a must have in your arsenal

Classic dynamics processing that literally works on anything and brings life and body in spades. Use this alongside the LA-2A or another softer compressor of your choice and be prepared to enjoy the sonic thickness!

My lack of a budget will never allow me to own the hardware version of an 1176. Thank God there is a company like UA that creates plugins that are 98% as good as the hardware! I'm happy with every product I get from UA! While emulations of hardware do not sound perfectly like the hardware, the plugin brings with it a quality that the hardware does not possess either so it's a good trade off.

Number one in my book

This is the foundation of UA's success

If I should start from fresh with UA plugs, this would be first on my list.

These are so good.

I have two hardware 1176's. I don't even bother using them when I mix now (only when tracking) because these plugins are so good that I can't be bothered to patch in the hardware. They sound amazing.

Cannot. Live. Without.

My favorite UAD Compressors, hands down. Nothing compares to that all-buttons-in mayhem that only these plugs can bring.

Having never used the hardware, I did wonder why this was such a classic compressor. All other 1176 emulations had left me slightly disappointed. I have used UAD's Classic Limiter Collection for about a month now and I have to say it sounds fantastic. It gives you that extra something. It sounds great on everything and seems to give a presence and clarity even when I'm not compressing. Very happy.

Desert Island Compressor

These compressors are some of the best things UAD has ever made. they have changed the way I mix forever! the AE with slo attack is phenomenal for snare drum... the Rev A is amazing on vocals, electric keyboards, anything to which I want to add presence and true grit. The LN sounds awesome on drums, guitars, everything really.

Thanks UAD!

My favorite compressors, ever.

These plugins are some of the only I've encountered that feel and work like the real thing in the box. My go to compressors. If you only buy one thing from UA, this is it.

Before they underestimated his quality

I decided to buy his after using the demo,For the sound of "AE" very fascinating.

As I wrote in Analog Classics bundle, these plugs are damn close to analog. Using it very often, Thanks for it, UA!

Class A Compressors

My favourite tools to Compress Vocals, Snares , Toms , Drum Busses and much more !
I had a few different emulations of this world class compressors but none of them sounded like the ones from UA.
The sound compares 95% to the Hardware and that speaks for itself...
