Universal Audio announces Unison technology – Classic analog mic preamps for Apollo

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced its Unison technology, an audio processing breakthrough that enables the popular Apollo Audio Interfaces’ onboard mic preamps to sound and behave like the world’s most sought-after tube and solid state preamps.

More than three years in the making, Unison is an exclusive analog/digital integration system that gives the user continuous, realtime, bi-directional control and interplay between Apollo’s physical hardware and UAD software mic preamp models. With Unison, the Apollo mic preamp’s analog impedance, gain stage sweet spots, and component-level circuit behaviors are adjusted in real time prior to analog-to-digital conversion to accurately emulate the target mic preamp model.

“Apollo was designed and built with mic preamp modeling in mind, and has included input impedance switching from the very beginning — every Apollo mic preamp is Unison-ready,” says Universal Audio CEO Bill Putnam Jr. “The UA 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ is the first of many Unison-enabled plug-ins for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform. It’s included with the new Apollo Twin desktop interface, and will be available for all Apollo customers in Q1.”

Unison features

  • An exclusive analog/digital integration system that’s already built into every Apollo mic preamp
  • Enables Apollo mic preamps to sound and behave like the world’s most sought-after tube and solid state preamps — including their all-important impedance, gain stage sweet spots, and component-level circuit behaviors.
  • Continuous, realtime, bi-directional control and interplay between Apollo’s physical hardware and UAD software preamp model.
  • Requires an Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.

Voxengo GlissEQ

Voxengo has announced version 3.8 of its GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer plug-in for Windows and Mac.

The most interesting and unique feature GlissEQ offers you is its filters with dynamic behavior. Beside this wonderful “dynamic behavior”, GlissEQ features real-time spectrum analyzer.

Moreover, the spectrum of a track can be exported to any other instance of GlissEQ thus making real-time inter-track spectrum comparisons possible. This can help you free frequency ranges in one track to allow the instrument in another track occupying same frequencies breathe.

Changes in GlissEQ v3.8

  • Implemented a fast Shift+Click insertion of control points.
  • Increased “smoothed” graph drawing precision.
  • Increased overall spectrum drawing precision.
  • Added VST3 support.

GlissEQ for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $99.95 USD.

Waves releases Scheps 73 equalizer plugin

Waves Scheps 73

Waves has launched Scheps 73, an equalizer effect plugin based on the Neve 1073 equalizer and mic preamp.

Developed in association with world-renowned mixing engineer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Black Sabbath, Lana Del Ray, Jay-Z), the Scheps 73 plugin is a colorful 3-Band EQ modeled on the classic 1073 console’s EQ and mic preamp module.

Empowered by Waves cutting-edge technologies, the Scheps 73 EQ features interrelated bands that adhere to the 1073’s original specs and precisely emulate its behavior: a fixed 12kHz high-frequency band, switchable low and midrange bands with cut and boost controls, and an 18dB/octave high-pass filter. Additionally, for the first time ever, a little-known 10kHz midrange band discovered in the original 1073 schematics but operable only on the rare 1078 channel strip has been modeled and incorporated into the plugin. And to top it all off, the Waves MS matrix has been added to let you apply different equalization to mid and side stereo content.

Using innovative procedures to model the acclaimed Marinair transformer, Waves has meticulously captured all the sonic characteristics of the 1073, including its harmonic distortion. These overtones were tweaked to perfection by Andrew Scheps himself, resulting in beautiful and authentic saturations.

The Scheps 73 is currently on sale for $99 USD in Native formats (regular $149 USD). It is also available for Soundgrid, priced at $225 USD.

112dB updates Redline Equalizer to v1.0.4 & Redline Preamp to v1.0.2 + 50% off

112dB Redline Equalizer

112dB has updated its Redline Equalizer and Redline Preamp effect plugins, including a 64-bit version for Windows & OSX and several bug fixes.

Redline Preamp emulates an analogue preamp. It livens up any digital or “too clean” signal by adding warmth, character, and overall mojo. But unlike many other saturation plugins, Redline Preamp doesn’t stop at just a single (or at most a few) analogue devices. Instead we captured the essence of what makes analogue gear sound so, well, analogue and provide controls to sculpt the effect to your liking.

Redline Equalizer is a variable-phase EQ. Before Redline EQ made its appearance the world of equalizers was firmly divided into linear-phase (software) and non-linear phase (software or hardware) equalizers. Redline Equalizer combines the two and gives you access to the entire spectrum, from linear phase via almost-linear phase all the way to full analogue-style phase shift – and even beyond!

Changes in Redline Equalizer v1.0.4 / Preamp v1.0.2

  • New:
    • 64-bit VST & AU version for Windows & MAC OS
  • Improvements:
    • Drag & drop authorization was removed (to simplify the authorization process & enhance compatibility with ProTools 10)
    • [Redline Equalizer] dB representation in the Tube section has been changed. Was: <0dB – 24dB>. Is now: < -24dB -0dB>
  • Bug fixes:
    • Knob & slider parameters didn’t show up correctly in native editors and external controllers.
    • Sample rate wasn’t retrieved correctly from the host (AU): EQ-frequencies were off at non-44.1 sample rates.
    • Latency wasn’t communicated correctly to certain hosts.
    • Several memory leaks.

Redline Preamp and Redline Equalizer are available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS). To celebrate the update, 112dB is offering 50% off both plugins until 14th January, 2014.

HoRNet Plug-Ins SW43EQ

HoRNet Plug-Ins has released SW34EQ, an analog modeled equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SW34EQ is an equalizer coming straight from the 80s. It’s the digital version of the EQ found in an American console and it features the typical analog EQ sound and controls.

This plug-in is specifically modeled after one channel of this console used in the main room of Virus Studio in Siena, Italy. This EQ is very smooth and gentle, both in the EQ shapes (bells and shelves) and it’s almost perfect for general tone shaping, especially the low shelf gives weight to the sound without pumping it too much.

You also get an high-pass filter at 40Hz with 18dB/oct slope that can be activated even if the rest of the EQ is not.

SW34EQ features

  • 4 band equalizer.
  • high and low shelf filters.
  • 2 parametric filters with three different Q.
  • low cut filter at 40Hz with 18/dB octave slope.
  • analog emulation with saturation and hiss.
  • Mac OS X (>=10.5 Intel) and Windows support.
  • 64-bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
  • Audio Units VST2.4, VST3 and RTAS format.

The plug-in is available to purchase for 17.99 EUR.
