Excellent Rhodes Instrument

There are obviously many elec piano plug ins but the weakness is often the top end. The UAD version really gets that right. It bites and rings like a real Rhodes. It’s also a huge time saver that all the extras you would use with a Rhodes, like pedals and rack effects are built in and ready to go. Overall the sound, interface, and ease of use are excellent. Another banger from UAD.

When it works, it works.

I believe this is the first 5 star I have ever given to any UAD plug that I own. Having used this plug for about two years, I believe it's a worthy tool that gets the job done. I have tracked vocals with it in Unison, as well as used it in a mastering chain post analogue Buss Comp and it worked its own magic at the right settings. I have tried it in mixing and I have not found a real use for it in that arena compared to other tools in my arsenal. When you find the sweet spot in your use case, you will understand what I mean by it works when it works. I am reviewing as a plugin tool and not comparing to the real hardware as I have never used the hardware.

Takes it to another level

You can drop this on a 2 bus or even a tracking situation and it definitely increases the vibe!

Loving the sound

As a mic reviewer having the Manley Tube Preamp has been amazing, running even budget friendly mics sound great with this and for the price zero complaints.

Very efficient and obvious improvement on my main Output Bus

Too many knobs for me maybe… But very efficient with useful presets that I immediately adopted on the Output Bus of my Cubase mixing Template !!

The last touch

I'm not making professional mixes, but I like my home recordings having a good sound. I sing and play acoustic and electric guitar. I like to spend my spare time experimenting and trying to reach a well balanced result. This equalization has a lot of options and good presets.

R. Hoffman

February 16, 2024

Phenomenal

As incredible as you'd expect. In any given situation, with any given instrument - this is one of if not the first EQs I reach for, every time.

Smooth and reliable tones

Excellent compressor, nice to have the set to mix and match for Vox and guitars,

B. Spence

Nice!

Growing up in Detroit during this era was so great. I use this EQ when plugging my Jazzmaster right into the board then into the interface with this Plug-in and sounds wonderful.

Motown Sound

Nice reverb good complement to Capital Chambers reverb, doesn’t have quite the depth of Capital chambers but still has an “Air” to it. Use on Guitaring backing parts.

J. Steffen

Sounds amazing!

I bought this to use with drums to create a drum room sound. I used as a send return effect and used a send on the overheads. Worked like a charm. If you want a really big rock drum room sound, look no further. It sounds absolutely amazing. You can kinda that big John Bonham room sound with it which is excellent. Of course you can get much more a lot a tame room sound just by tweaking it. Small, huge, and everything in between. I had a chorus for song that was like 6 tracks of yelling. Very heavy rock track and I wanted that chorus section to really sound like a group of people in a large room. Again this did the job phenomenally. I can say I highly recommend this plugin. Don’t hesitate.
