Ocean Way Studios
It's totally changed my mix. Awesome!
Really amazing perspectives and depth.
Gut aber Hungrig
Ich glaube hier ist einiges möglich um gute Raumklänge v.a. beim Recording / Tracking zu realisieren, man muss sich allerdings schon stark mit dem Plugin auseinandersetzen, da die Möglichkeiten gefühlt unendlich sind. Leider frisst es sehr viel Prozessorleistung. Im Mix daher kaum in mehreren Instanzen einzusetzen. Zum Tracking aber cool, um die "Raumdefizite" im Homestudio zu kompensieren. Der Preis ist natürlich dafür schon sehr knackig. Kann ich daher nur im Rahmen von Rabattaktionen, z.B. Black Friday o.ä. empfehlen.
room mic heaven
i'm tracking drums in a bedroom and it sounds like pure heaven. to be able to add ocean way rooms to only the drums you want such as kick snare and toms is amazing. keep the overheads tight and the hats dry. you can not ask for more control than that. way to go UAD. ocean way room also rocks on vocals and guitar amps.
Great for bouncing
Fantastic natural sounding reverb with limitless potential for making tones. I especially love the re mic function. Sounds unbelievably good and sits so well in a mix.
A magic box-like plugin
It seems to re-create the source. great!
Great Room Reverb
very high quality.
This plug makes it sound real.
I like it!
I'm still figuring this one out and how I want to use it everyday. It does sound amazing and I'm working with it often. Thank you UAD!
What I was looking for
Really really great reverb. Easy to work with and gives me exactly what I wan't.
Try it, you will like it.
The best rooms i ever heard.. Great
I've never worked with anything like this. very special plug - works very different than the other uad reverbs i have (lex.,emt's,) and helps me to get a great big drum sound from a relatively small drum room
Best Verb Ambience Plugin
Love it!! best real ambience reverb I have used. It just works! you don´t need hours of tweaking, just filter unwanted frequencies, adjust proximity and done!
Easily worth the price of the hardware to run it.
I attended a demo of the UAD kit and ended up buying a Satellite Octo JUST TO RUN OceanWay.
I haven't ever heard a product that does what this plugin does. Having taken delivery of it I'm even more astonished. The most processing fun I've ever had.
Love It !
I just finished an instrumental cue and I wanted the electric guitars to have that giant room sound and Ocean Way delivered. I tracked and printed with my Ocean Way on my send/axillary channel and was able to blend it later during mix down without compromising any additional DSP.
I'm glad I bought it !
Real room, it's a great plug-in
By passing soft-synth through Re-Mic mode of OWS, it gives a realistic thickness as though the sound passed through the air.
it's a great plug-in
The best reverb
I love remic this is awsome
Stunning room simulation
I really can’t say enough good things about this plugin. It is just so clever! The different tones that you’re able to create and the space that you can add is so authentic and really does sound like it has been recorded in a different (amazing) room!
I’ve never been to Ocean Way, so I can’t say if it sounds like it, but it does sound like an incredible recording room with all the benefits you’d hope for from varied mic positions in a very high end studio.
Amazing work UA!

This plugin simply does something I couldn't achieve with any other before. The Re mic function is unbelieveable, it adds a lot of depth and warmth. I'm using it in all my mixes, it works specially well on vst instruments. A must have.
Much room for experimentation
I've noticed the biggest issue with many amp/cab simulations and software instruments is their lack of air and realistic room sound, which makes it hard for them to blend in with the rest of the mix or to sound like on commercial productions.
To me, UAD Ocean Way's re-micing feature represents a great and unique way of imparting a more pleasing, rewarding sound and a more natural quality to digital amp sims and software instruments alike, when used as an insert during tracking or mixing, and also really shines on OHs and room mics. The different mic selection and placement options (mono and stereo) are well thought-out and allow for endless hours of experimentation.
The reverb feature can help glue a mix or individual stems together when used as a send for individual instruments or busses. Using several busses for multiple room sizes (small, medium, large) can really help impart some dimension and depth to a mix. Like most newer UAD plugins, Ocean Way Studios is, due to its attention to detail, quite dsp-heavy which can be worked around by printing the effect to the DAW during tracking or bouncing tracks inside the DAW during mixing.
However, aside from its dsp-usage, UAD Ocean Way Studios turns out to be a unique, meticulously modelled plugin and a great, innovative product that may prove a powerful tool for ANY home studio, using software instruments/drum samples, as well as for smaller studios without fancy live rooms at their disposal.
Music comes alive
It's impossible to not find the right ambient for every instrument with this plugin. In some occasions I found myself to substitute others reverbs on older project and the song changed face! Very versatile ambient generator.
