UAD is different

I've been using this most famous EQ for a while, but it was a product from another company. I thought it wouldn't be much different, but UAD was different. Great EQ!

Still can't figure out how to say the name

It sounds great but it's a constant argument on how to pronounce the U syllable. I hope they update it to fix that.

Dynamics and harmonics

I have this for more than a year now. It is something I always use on various sounds. The low end thickens up when you just add this on a channel, over all the entire track gets extra harmonics. Truly a beautiful product to have, and versatile.
