I have tried the demo but....

after I bought the full paid version the s$*t hit the fan. It didn't work at all. I did everything the troubleshooting videos told me to do. Install/uninstall etc. but unfortunately nothing worked for me. So, I was really satisfied for 14 days

"Classic " for a reason

I was lucky to use an 1176 back in the 80's, primarily for radio promos and concert spots. The flexibility of the ratios, the simplicity in dialing in the sound, was an amazing moment of discovery.
Forward 40 years, still doing spots and promos. And amazingly, the 1176 "three-pack" plug-in's, offer all those options, and more-including the noticeable coloration differences.
Salute! to Bill Sr.'s genius, and to Bill Jr. and the family for continuing the legacy of UA's sound !

VST Avalon VT-737 Universal Audio, the perfect emulation of an already incredible tool.

Avalon-VT 737 Tube Channel Strip from Universal Audio is a pre-amp, compressor and equalizer. Better than a multifunction tool, it is a surgical vst that I use both in Send effect and Insert effect to provide warmth and dynamics.
The +: the High Gain function for recording a guitar, for example, and the EQ setting at 32k to air out the Trebles. Universal Audio has achieved more than just the perfect emulation of an already incredible tool.

Digital Reverb Lexicon L224, incredibly realistic sound

Lexicon L224, a fabulous reverb with an incredibly realistic sound, easy to use with its precise and comprehensive functions.

Awesome in the box moog

Sometimes when I am not in the studio and I don’t have my moog with me, this is just a lifesaver to get the amazing moog sound in the box.

Excellent and high quality sound! Easy controls! And I will use this synth quite often I think.

Professional. perfect

Manley Massive Passive EQ. My first experience using this tool in mastering prooved why this plugin is used by so many professionals worldwide. ..incredibly good!

Is this a joke?

This plugin is.... bad!! It sounds bad. Specialy if you compare it to some (i would say dozens) of other piano libraries/simulations. I bought it in a bundle but i don't see me using it in a near future.

Love love love this!

Color! Life! Glue! I just got this plug-in two weeks ago and I’ve dropped it on every song I’ve done since. Master track, vocal track, drums bus. It’s quite amazing. Tons of presets are really varied in tone, width, depth. Pure magic. Highly recommended.
