Authentic tube mic preamp modeling – featuring Unison technology for Apollo interfaces.

When Universal Audio founder Bill Putnam Sr. introduced the 610 Modular Amplifier preamp in the early '60s, it was a milestone in audio recording history. The 610 became famous among record producers for its startling harmonic detail, and rich clipping characteristics, and its ability to overdrive in a warm, ultra-musical fashion.

The original 610-A preamp was integral to countless legendary recordings — from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and Johnny Cash’s At Folsom Prison. Its modern variant, the 610-B, helped to create new classics by Adele and Cold War Kids. Today, you can add the same tube presence, warmth, and body to vocals, guitars, bass and more with the UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces.

Now You Can:

Give your tracks startling three-dimensional tube warmth, presence, and body

Record “through” the 610-A or 610-B tube preamp models in real time using Apollo Twin, DUO, or QUAD

Mix and saturate signals with any UAD-2 hardware for an iconic tube glow

Use the 610-A plug-in to get the tone of the Wally Heider "Green Board," used to record Neil Young, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix

Get the character of the 610’s entire signal path, including tube amplifiers and transformers, and circuit nonlinearities

Control Apollo interface mic preamp gain staging and impedance directly from the plug-in via Unison™ technology

The First Genuine 610 Tube Preamp Emulation

The First Genuine 610 Tube Preamp Emulation

With over three years of development, the UA 610 Collection represents the first comprehensive modeling of the legendary 610-A tube preamp and its modern variant, the 610-B — including their tube and transformer components and all of the unique distortion characteristics of the originals. The 610-A is modeled on a channel from the storied Wally Heider "Green Board," used to record Neil Young, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix, and offers simple 10 kHz high-shelf and 100 Hz low-shelf EQ. The modern 610-B offers selectable input impedance, adjustable high- and low-shelf EQ, and expanded gain range.

Unison Technology for Apollo Interfaces

Unison Technology for Apollo Interfaces

With UA’s Unison technology, the UA 610 Preamp & EQ Collection blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the 610’s important impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made it legendary. And just like their hardware relatives, both the 610 plug-ins allow Line and Mic levels, with both 500 Ω and 2.0 k Ω impedance setting options available in the 610-B. Combined with Apollo's physical preamp gain, this provides a tonal range from clean to clipped — with tons of broad, musical sweet spots in-between.

Add Tube Color to any Source

Add Tube Color to any Source

UAD-2 and Apollo 16 owners can use the UA 610 Collection for mixing, adding color and saturation to any source, without going outside the box. Inject your tracks with the legendary warm, natural compression the 610 is famous for, allowing you to place instruments perfectly in the mix while giving them a rich, three-dimensional tube character.

The best of the best!

I've been in love with the 610 preamp series for a long time and these two plugins are definitely the real thing, even though they're virtual, you can't literally hear no difference between the outboard gear and these plugins. Highly recommended!

Worked on the lead vocal and hear what i wanted until i put the 610b in the chain. From a cold and spikey vocal to a warm and full tone... Really pleased!

Warm, round, analog goodness!

My first experience with this pre (610b) was on a vocal. I didn't have anything else to try out at the time and gosh what it did was amazing. It completely transformed a flat performance into something that pushed and pulled with so much body and character without being over bearing in anyway. When I got the 610a i was pleasantly surprised to hear something somewhat similar in over all bottom end and thickness, however so different in every other way. The 610a had a little more character to the mid range and was over all a bit more aggressive than the 610b and i was stoked to have two different flavors of something familiar sounding.

Warm warm warm

Previously, I only saw in big recording studios or on the Internet how someone uses hardware 610, but when I used preamps, even plugins, it was magic. Bravo!
