The Cleanest Compressor Ever.

I used to use mainly Waves Plugins for the CLA-76, when I first switched to the 1176LN, I was very surprised on how big of a difference it was. Nothing is able to emulate the real sound of a 1176 better than this.

Update. I did give 2 or 3 stars before but I refuse. Customer service here sucks.

UAD has made so much money off of us, they feel obviously they don't have to communicate with the customers. I called the support number and it directed me to got to a support website. where the still don't interact with the customer. I love your products but if you all are too busy or to BIG I'd say to speak with the customer then this will be my last purchase ever. I never had this problem with Waves Audio, and they even reached back out to me. Now I've purchased the Electra 88 and the download keeps pausing at 15%. I was frustrated now I'm upset after calling and them telling me to go to a website and call will automatically disconnect, Like Really, you don't want to talk to your customers. I'm sure they reach out to the Big Time producers or whatever. I regret purchasing anything from you all. Really!

I have never had problems with any other UAD plugin. But this. I listened to the Electra 88 in the video on your website and it sounded so natural, I had to make the purchase. Not sure what's going on but, I've been trying to download it since last night and it's still not downloaded. What is the problem??? This makes no since. I've started the download over several times. and it doesn't go past 15% download smh I'm frustrated and disappointed.

Only works well when you're DAW is online

I use Cubase 13 Pro, I recently installed a full version of PolyMAX Synth and I've had issues with my iLok account ever since. I don't like having my DAW constantly connected to the internet, it seems the only way to get PolyMAX to load and run ok is if I keep my DAW online. Not having the option to work offline really sucks.

Absolutely amazing

The warmth and authenticity of the sound, all the built-in effects, and the sleek user interface make the Electra 88 an absolute joy to use.

If you are a serious producer, you have to have a Moog in your arsenal and while the real deal is more fun to mess around with physical knobs and whatnot, sound wise this is 99% there. Absolutely epic tones for lead, harmony, and bass (my personal fav). Must have plugin instrument from uad!

Opal is really Cool

I was on the fence at first since I own Arturia's V collection I doubted I needed another Synth. I was wrong this thing is awesome and unique. I really like the way it's set up, Very easy to understand and it you Also buy PolyMax as well Than you will quite the cool tool box. Trust Me!
