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.

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

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

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

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

super préamp pour prise basse DI

j'ai testé plusieurs préamp Unisson sur mon Apollo pour des enregistrements DI de basse, et le V76 est bien équilibré, il apporte de la rondeur et chaleur, ainsi qu'une petite saturation intéressante qui fait ressortir la basse dans le contexte du mix

WOW ¡¡¡

I got almost all Unison preamps form UAD, all of them are great, some of them really make a noticeable difference.... But this V76... WOW, this is AMAZING ¡ Voices and acoustic guitars really came to life, and made a huge difference which made a new mark to campare with the rest. Really a great experience. Thanks ¡

Actually CAN buy me love

Great vintage warm vibes! Has a great sound on vocals and acoustic guitars that is a nice different texture than what I get w/ my other pre’s. Total game changer on DI bass tone. Has my flat wound P Bass sounding better than ever. Amazing paired w/ Pulltec EQs and Fairchild compressor

Very Musical

Great Vintage Tone, but can be a little harsh when you crank it up. Be gentle with Pre and you'll enjoy the vibe.

Great plugin

I don’t see many people talking about this on snare drum, maybe I’m one of the only people out here still tracking acoustic drums

I feel like I have a different microphone

I have a Neumann TLM 103, which is a raw, flat, good microphone. In combination with the V75, it is no longer an ordinary microphone, you can hear the texture of the vocals, the vocals are closer, the only drawback is the high DSP consumption, but good sound has its requirements.

This is definitely aimed at the more vintage market. and it does a great job at hitting that mark. everything about its tone and use screams vintage.
