Get the big, rich tube sounds of the world's most coveted standalone mic preamp.
The venerable V76 Preamplifier is arguably the most coveted standalone mic preamp ever made. Developed in the 1950s by the German Institute of Broadcast Technology (IRT), the V76's distinctly "hi-fi" tube sound was integral to legendary studios across Europe from the 1950s through present day, including Decca, EMI, and Abbey Road.
Now, you can get all of the beautiful, harmonically rich tube gain and classic frequency response of this iconic mic preamp in a great-sounding, easy-to-use emulation with the V76 Preamplifier plug-in, exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.
Now You Can:
Get the big, rich "hi-fi" tube tone of the legendary V76 Preamp in the box
Record vocals, guitars, drums, and more through the V76 in real time using UA Audio Interfaces
Confidently shape signals with an impressive 76 dB of clean gain
Control UA Audio Interface mic preamp gain staging and impedance directly from the plug-in with Unison™ technology
The Only Authentic V76 Preamp Emulation
In developing the V76 Preamp plug-in, UA engineers pored over an original, fully-restored "golden" unit, serial #302, based on the original IRT schematics. We modeled every aspect of its military-grade design, including the pentode tube and transformer input and output stages, circuit nonlinearities, and clipping.
Hi-Fi Tube Perfection
Brimming with tonal complexity and 76 dB of hi-fi tube gain, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in will breathe fresh life into your mic locker and give your tracks the big, larger-than-life presence heard on some of the biggest records ever made. Perfect for nearly every source — vocals, acoustic guitars, strings, drums, or bass — each of the V76 Preamplifier plug-in's gain steps will gently shape your sounds, letting you quickly dial in "mix-ready" tracks.
Unison Technology for UA Audio Interfaces
Harnessing UA’s Unison technology, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the original hardware’s impedance, gain staging “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the V76 Preamplifier plug-in to the digitally controlled mic preamps in UA Audio Interfaces.
Add Clarity and Color to Any Source
Of course, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in isn’t just for UA Audio Interface owners. UAD hardware owners can use the V76 Preamplifier on any mix, getting bold, rich colors, without going outside the box. With the V76 Preamplifier's complete circuit emulation, you can craft your projects with the same rich flavor heard on countless classics.

Great sounding product
I use the originals and was curious how the emulations sound. Hooked up a pair of KM 84s to record an acoustic steel string(Santa Cruz OM-M) for a song I am producing. Compared the tracks and then decided on using the UAD versions which sounded identical albeit without the hiss, which was a bit more on the hardware tracks. Very,very good version, easy to use,fantastic results. Another one which goes into my Gallery of the Great Plugs!
Probably the best of the pre amps to my ears. Basic operation but very instant satisfaction- warmth, character and saturation. Favourite at the moment with the Avalon a close second. Well done UA- another winner.
My favorite UAD preamp!
Yes, I tried everything and my favorites are this v76 and the API channel strip. 2 different beasts, and the v76 is the warmer, phatter unison pre for my ears (helios isn't far though...) with that slight rounding thing done to the transient. When you push it, the saturation is very nice too.
Simple and efficient!
My Review V76
This preamp makes my Neumann TL103 sound like a 87 ai.
Used to record particularly difficult vocal for an album track. Took one take and a couple of drop ins to make a performance that was made at speech volume into the weighty centre of a mix with piano, electric guitar, drums and big effects. Little post processing required. Clean and natural response. Very pleased.
I love this preamp for recording vocals, guitar, and synths. I am especially fond of the golden era tone preset. I feel spoiled to have so many preamps at my disposal and there are so many beautiful choices. Out of all of them, I find myself drawn to this simple little golden gem more often than not
Stunning, Stupendous, Incredible
I've heard a handful of top end hardware preamps over the years, and I own a few. I was A/B ing some preamps and came to this and literally, my jaw dropped and I started laughing. I was floored with how rich and analog this thing sounded. This preamp definitely has color and character to it, but its so rich and detailed and silky smooth I could not believe I was hearing a plug in. It instantly brought my thoughts back to the days of some of the best singers, and with it a laugh and a big smile. It just blew me a way. Incredible.
Great Emulation for my Unison Preamp
Warm, Phat, Detailed. Amazing
The V76 is my favorite preamp.
My beloved preamp.
This preamp is used for vocals, guitars and basses.
I'm especially using it to create tube sounds for guitar tones.
The uad preamp is pretty good, but the V76 is the preamp you need to make the tube sound.
The high pass filter and low pass filter are also very useful for quickly setting the tone.
If you want a warm tube sound, this is the recommended preamp.
Neve 1073, Helios 69, and SSL channel strips all have different positions, so be sure to try them.
Had to buy this
I can really hear my vox better with this than any other plug. It's my pre amp, and in my tracking plugs as well as in my DAW. Absolutely love it. Thx UA.
I GOT MY BEATLES ON!
I am a GEAR ENTHUSIAST. I always wanted to simulate the Beatles vocal chain as they were my initial musical heroes. Moreover the V76 is the standard preamp that most bass studio musicians bring to the studio. Last but not least it offers 76db of gain to power even low output mics like sm-7 or ribbon mics. Oh yeah it can do the Revolution distortion effect 100% https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=ivvU9Vpcw3c&feature=emb_logo
YOU CAN COUNT ME IN!
I love the V76 in my unison slot in combination with the LA2A and Oxide Tape Recorder. Paired with my Sony C-100 I get the best of both world - crystal clear and super smooth vocals. Sounds like a record!
Minimalistic, but effective. A nice addition to my palette of sounds.
V 76 PREAMP
Stereo ribbons love this thing.
A must have
Easy to use, great tonal character, a must have if you are building your virtual space.
This thing is just legendary. Just waiting for this one!
What an awesome addition to the UA Channel Strip Lineup!
I really like this plugin! They just keep getting better and better!
Great Vintage Feeling
A great plugin! Amazing gain staging and sound in a neat classic box. Good complement to the 610 unison amps.
Just what I was looking for!
Great preamp, on everything! Ads a nice subtle or not so subtle color to your signal. I have all of UAD preamps, the V76 ads that nice vintage sound to your mix when it calls for it! Thanks UAD, keep up the great work!
