Add clarity and life to your mixes with this tube-based processor.

The SPL Vitalizer MK2-T plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a spot-on emulation of the popular tube-based Vitalizer MK2-T hardware unit, a longtime staple of top mixing and post-production facilities.

Employed as both a fixative and an enhancement tool, the Vitalizer MK2-T plug-in shapes sounds in a musical and effective way, bringing life to tracks and buses, enhancing loudness, widening the soundscape, and adding harmonic depth and richness.

Now you can:

Easily create wider, clearer mixes

Add tube presence and harmonics to individual tracks or an entire mix

Bring out instruments and vocals and easily place them in the mix

Increase loudness and clarity by “unmasking” overlapping sounds

Not hearing much impact

Compared to the version from Alliance the impact of the one from UAD is quite marginal. You can hear a difference only when everything at max. Disappointing. Or am I not using it right ?

The Glue

My 'Go to', finalizer on my master buss. Sub Bass, mid & hi's, stereo expander, gain, compression. Was impressed from the start; (14 day trial), had to have. AllInOne plugin.

Pretty mixed feelings.

When I auditioned this one it did add something nice to the tracks I used it on, so I bought it. But the more and more I use it I'm just not hearing enough of impact to make me want to use up DSP resources. Kind of wish I had bought the SPL Twin Tube instead.

Awesome

I didn’t compare it directly to the hardware which I use to work with years ago but I love the way how I can adjust the sound and get brilliance out of a single track or the stereo mix.

Amazing! Blows the Plugin Alliance version out of the water.

Don't own it yet but have demoed it many many times, and will be buying. I compared it with the Plugin Alliance version and they are quite different. Sounds a little subtle at first but I've you listen for a bit it's actually quite significant. I've never used the actual hardware but the UAD really has that tube warmth and sweet deep smooth bottom end, which was really lacking in the Plugin Alliance. I just felt like Plugin Alliance sounded digital and UAD sounds analog.

Old tapes to the digital domain...

So I have been trying to resurrect old recordings from the '60's and this gives a good nudge in the right direction.

Sounds like a mixed record

Amazing for enhancing the stereo width of a mix. Place it on your stereo bus and discrete elements immediately start to sound like a mixed record.
