I have the Tc powercore and the UAD 1 card and the powercore plug ins all sound horrible,except for the Sony plug ins that are $550 each.The UAD 1 is spectacular and also works better.I would love to trade my Powercore for another UAD 1 even though it cost more money.I would also love to see UA develop a Lexicon reverb plug in as well as an Eventide plug in.This would make it mandatory for every studio in the world to have many UAD 1's.Peter Warren
I just got a 2nd UAD-1 (Project Pak), the Precision Equalizer, and Precision Limiter after selling some
rack gear. The Precision Equalizer is the best EQ I have ever used for sweetening up mixes. The Precision Limiter is a great alternative to the L2, meatier, and more...I have to say it ... "analog."
On Nuendo 3 at home, the UAD-1 beats the sound of my Waves / Pro Tools HD rig at work. With the free VST to RTAS wrapper that came with my Project Pak, it also makes my little MBox a serious challenger to my PT/Waves HD rig at the office.
I own all the UA plugs except for the UA Plate 140 and CE-1 chorus. Hmmm, what else can I sell to get those?
Very warm sound.
Use it for Groups or the "Master Mix".
Cambridge EQ and the Precision EQ: A perfect Team for me.
Thanks Universal Audio !!!!
Coming from an Analog goon that recently went hybrid (analog to digital dump for mixing) the UAD plugs are amazing. I thought the Pultec EQ's were awesome and then I did a free-trial of the Precision EQ for a few sessions on an output (inserted before the UAD Prelimiter of which destroys the Waves Lim plug) and I'm totally floored. Again UAD plugs allow me to do things I thought were only pleasing via outboard vintage analog gear or at my console. EQ's have been a sore spot for me regarding digital EQ's until I heard UAD plugs; bar-none the BEST EQ's (also limiters, verbs, compressors, and well - pretty much everything I exclusively use, for digital mixing)
The above-standard and care that goes in to every plug is much appreciated and well used.
Sitting in Front of an Sontec 6 Band Parametric an think about to use.....but what's that???....
A very powerful Plug-in changed my Mind....and it works great!.....
Gratulation, to build this for all the people who make Mastering and more.....
Very nice EQ. Its sonic transparency is well suited for mastering applications and makes a perfect companion to the Precision Limiter (which is now my absolute favorite plug-in limiter from any manufacturer). Please release more mastering plug-ins! Perhaps a multi-band compressor?...
Wow!!! Finally, a EQ I can call upon to actually sizzle melody into the audio. I liked it on a lot of levels. The sound is absolutely marvelous!!
The stepped function is a great addition. Wished all plugs had that very ingredient in design. More Mastering plugs please!!!!!!
