Add the Iconic Tone of Two Compressors

The Fairchild 670 and companion, the Fairchild 660, have defined some of popular music’s most revered sounds. Renowned for its aggressiveness, the 660 punches up piano, bass, and guitar, tracks, while the flagship 670 is a full stereo compressor that injects vibe and color onto channels, final mixes, and even masters.

Add presence and texture to lead vocals with the Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection.

Blend Sounds with the Wet/Dry Mix Control

Blend Sounds with the Wet/Dry Mix Control

The Mix control lets you blend your unprocessed signal with the compressed signal, opening worlds of textural possibilities on everything from a drum bus to a mix bus.

Enhance Drums with Sidechain Filters

Enhance Drums with Sidechain Filters

Punch up your drum bus without triggering the threshold of the compressor with the kick drum, for drums with max impact using the Fairchild's Sidechain Filters.

Add Grit with the Headroom Control

Add Grit with the Headroom Control

The Headroom (HR) control can be increased to make mastering applications a breeze, raising the gain reduction threshold and lowering distortion. Conversely, you can decrease headroom, lowering the gain reduction threshold and raising distortion for grittier textures that work on everything from vocals and drums to guitar and bass.

      Great compression and modified sounds that only the Fairchild can add. It's still king of the compressor family for good reason.

      Amazing Tube FairChild Emulation!

      The Fairchild Tube Limiter plugin by Universal Audio is a faithful emulation of the legendary Fairchild 670 tube compressor. It accurately captures the harmonic richness and smoothness of the original, offering exceptional dynamic control. With its intuitive interface, it allows fine adjustments in compression and release. Ideal for mixing and mastering, it provides unparalleled analog warmth and presence, making it indispensable for producers seeking vintage sound quality. In short, it is an essential addition to any professional audio toolkit.

      Instant mojo!

      Lovely emulations of the classic hardware. Smooth and punchy , with lots of harmonics. I really love it on drum buses and vocals.

      Easily the best Fairchild emulation.

      I've used a variety of Fairchild emulations and in part, saw the composer Al Hug used when mixing his sample compositions. It has this smooth compression that lifts the source and pushes it forward while adding character the emulations of the Fairchild fail too. I'm certainly going to be adding more UA plugins to my arsenal off the strength of the quality of the Fairchild 670.

      Nice App - but worthless for me.

      Nice limiter, I like that limiter very much, but I've be always online, or need to plugin a usb pendrive :-(. Like all UAudio Plugins. They're worthless for me, as a traveller. I'll replace the plugins with alternatives, in this case with that from IK Multimedia VC-670 und sell that licence.

      Use with SSL in mastering chain

      I use it after the SSL compressor in my mastering chain to give it some light saturation from the emulations the analog gear provides… also sounds amazing on drum busses. I’m slowly replacing a certain subscription of plug ins to UA…

      High quality and reliable!

      Great warm sound! Very easy to use. Undoubtedly, this plugin is an iconic. I thank UA for the opportunity to purchase such plugins for very profitable and generous offers.

      I bought this because of Mr Brauer

      Love this plugins so much, ive been using the wave version since forever and i saw Mr M.Brauer explained his Brauerize method, so i bought this for my arsenal and never regret it, its offer different colours especially on my vocals chain.

      LE compresseur vintage

      Machine extraordinaire, l'émulation du 670 proposée par UA est de (très) loin la meilleure disponible sur le marché.

      I never could download this

      I could not get UA connect to download my software(some vague message about failure to launch) and I am the process of requesting a refund now. I am unhappy with UAs byzantine software delivery and lack of support that is easily accessible. I certainly will neve order anything directly from them again.

      Very reliable.

      Considering how I can have a nice tube feeling which I have experienced in the analog recording studios in 1990's, this fairchild would be the closest so far. Now I am looking forward having Manley Collections which I expect to have the real studio work in 2000's.

      Very Useful and Ultra-Musical

      Like I needed another dynamics plug-in! But UAD made it too inviting to pass up and I'm glad they did. It has a distinct flavor that sounds great, especially on direct guitar. I also picked up the CAPITO CHAMBERS yesterday and together, they are magic when combined on a direct guitar signal.
