TUBE tone 10!!

Imprescindible para las voces, en BUS para vocals, o en insert saca una calidez brutal!!

This compressor gives a smooth and soft sound. It gives the transients a round figure in the topp end ! Not so harch sounding. Very nice...

Vocal butter

An amazing piece of software, I wish I could push it into saturation like the real one but nonetheless it is clean and does its job quite well.

Way too aggressive and the GUI is too damn colossal

Compared to v1 this comp is WAY too aggressive. I don’t know what went wrong but v1 is way more smooth.

And that GUI isn’t cutting it. Sorry, but not sorry.

CL 1B even better!

The MkII sounds more transparent, reacts quicker to transients, and is a pleasure to use. Get it!!

Huge improvement!!!!!

I have been using the original for years now almost exclusively on bass guitar with amazing results, but this new update provides more detail and clarity to the compressor. Well worth the update.

Solid “go to” comp.

I will be changing my default signal chain to include this plugin for my vocal tracks. Warm round and clean. Nice....

I have the previous version and made the error of trying this new version out.
It's butter yawl, it's pure butter. Enjoy!

The best optical compressor...ever?

This is by far my favourite optical compressor model. People go gaga over the classic sounds of LA2As, but for me the flexibility, and nuance of this thing make it the modern classic. The top end is silky, and the low end smooth without losing any punch. Try it on piano if you need convincing. If you can only afford one opto, get this one.

No side chain

For a software compressor it sounds good but there‘s no sidechain available on the UA platform which generally makes UAD an inferior choice for compressors. I hope that they’ll get this fixed one day

This beats the 1176 with variable ratio compression and sonic clarity while beating the LA 2A with variable attack and release times. PERFECT!

I noticed the great capabilities of this machine when I first used many years ago in the abandoned from thw T.C Powercore. I was curious to see what UAD did for this amazing implementation, and I was pleased to find that it is a real transfer of the hardare machine to plug in. CL1B is the compressor everybody needs if he uses vocals, basses and more of all in my opinion.....keyboards. This compressor is one of the most friendly and easy to use and you really have to try hard to make it sound bad.....

PHAT BIG THICK with anything you throw at it. Did not think I could love it more, then MkII came out...... Just like I like them.
Well done UAD.
And thank you.

Real beast

Original plugin is a toy but this one is a beast. Killed New 1176 and 670 collection with no mercy, demo one day to buy.

Improved Version of the Tube Tech

I have the original version of this plugin that on many things it sounded great but it was not as versatile as I had hoped it would be. It had a luscious gooey character that seemed a little much on many sources and so I found myself turning to other compressors. After some hemming and hawing I demoed this new version and everything that I found disagreeable on the original version they seemed to correct. It seemed to react to the source much better and I can use this on a lot more material. I know they added more features but I think the update on the plug in itself is what is great. I bought it after I demoed it on material I had previously passed on with the other version.

I love the smooth texture on vocals. Definitely looking forward to recording more often.
