Universal Audio enhances Apollo audio interface with key system features & new plug-ins

Universal Audio has unveiled numerous future enhancements for its award-winning Apollo High-Resolution Interface — turning the popular unit into a scalable system capable of recording larger music projects on both Mac and Windows 7 machines.

Among the new Apollo interface features slated for delivery in the first half of 2013 is multi-unit cascading, which combines two Apollo interfaces into a single elegant system via FireWire or Thunderbolt. Multi-unit cascading provides simultaneous use of 16 analog inputs / outputs, including eight Apollo mic preamps, plus 12 digital inputs and outputs — perfect for tracking a full band.

The boost in Apollo connectivity is navigated via a redesigned Console application, offering better visual feedback, a new Mix-Merge mode, and a Pro Tools mode which greatly simplifies integration with Pro Tools systems.

“A year after its introduction, Apollo has become the top-selling audio interface in its class,” says UA CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam Jr. “We’re committed to enhancing its creative possibilities, through ongoing software improvements and a growing roster of new plug-in titles from UA and Direct Developer partners like Softube.”

Apollo owners will soon be able to play and record in real time through some of the world’s finest guitar amp emulations, courtesy of the acclaimed Softube Amp Room plug-ins — including Vintage Amp Room, Metal Amp Room, and Bass Amp Room. Softube Amp Room plug-ins will be available as part of an upcoming UAD/Apollo software update, along with the brand new LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection and API 500 Series EQ Collection plug-ins.

Apollo is a high-resolution 18 x 24 FireWire/Thunderbolt-ready audio interface that delivers the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording. Using Apollo, music producers and performers can track audio through a range of classic UAD analog emulation plug-ins — from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon and more — in real time, and with a sleek, elegant workflow on both Mac and Windows 7 systems.

With a world-renowned UAD plug-in library that includes Ampex®, Manley®, Lexicon®, Studer®, EMT®, Empirical Labs®, Neve®, SSL®, Roland®, and more, UAD-2 Custom bundles deliver a potential software value of more than $1,000US (depending on UAD plug-ins selected), at significant savings to new UAD-2 users.
  • New UAD-2 “Ultimate” Bundles — The Definitive Collection
    Combining the most powerful UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware with the most complete UAD plug-in bundle available, the new UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate (PCIe card format) and UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Ultimate (FireWire format) packages offer an extensive library of more than 55 UA-developed plug-ins, up to and including UAD Software v6.3*.

  • More Affordable UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core Models
    Alongside the new UAD-2 hardware and software introductions, UA is debuting new, more affordable pricing for the “Core” models of UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD PCIe hardware and UAD-2 DUO and QUAD Satellite FireWire hardware.

Additional UAD plug-ins can be purchased from UA’s Online Store.

“We’re excited by the additional power and flexibility that this new UAD-2 lineup provides,” says CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. “Not only has the processing power doubled with the UAD-2 OCTO model, but it’s now easier for users to customize their UAD-2 packages right out of the box. And with our new aggressive pricing for SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core models, UAD-2 is now even more accessible to producers who want to add authentic analog tone in their recordings.

Universal Audio EP-34, Classic Tape Echo + dbx 160 compressor / limiter (UAD Softwave Version 5.7.0)

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released UAD Software Version 5.7.0, including the EP-34, a classic tape echo plug-in, and the dbx 160, a compressor/limiter plug-in.

Released in September 2010, UAD Software Version 5.7.0 represents another step forward for the award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

UAD v5.7.0 includes the new EP-34 Classic Tape Echo plug-in for UAD-2, the now officially-sanctioned dbx 160 Classic Compressor/Limiter plug-in (formerly VCA VU), and improvements for Windows users.

Changes in UAD Softwave Version 5.7.0

  • New UAD-2 delay plug-in: EP-34 Classic Tape Echo.
  • UAD VCA VU is now officially licensed and renamed to UAD dbx® 160.
  • (UAD-2) Firmware update resolves potential flash memory errors.
  • (Win) UAD Meter settings are now obeyed under certain DAWs with Vista/Win7.
  • (Win RTAS) Manley Massive Passive and Precision Enhancer Hz are now installed on non-english language systems.
UAD EP-34 Classic Tape Echo

The EP-34 is a warm, highly adjustable, tape echo emulation inspired by two classic Echoplex units.

Universal Audio’s EP-34 Tape Echo plug-in gives guitar players and mix engineers the rich, warm tape delay effects of vintage Echoplex units, now on the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform for Mac and PC. One need only listen to classic recordings from Jimmy Page, Brian May, Chick Corea, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson and Andy Summers to hear the Echoplex sound in action. Unlike other Echoplex emulations, the EP-34 is the first plug-in that targets specific behaviors of both the EP-3 and EP-4 Echoplexes.

EP-34 features

  • Highly desirable sound of original EP-3 and EP-4 Echoplex tape delay units, now available as a UAD-2 plug-in for Mac or PC.
  • Tape echo effects virtually indistinguishable from those used on countless classic recordings of the past six decades.
  • Unique movable record head design creates warm, rich sound unlike any other delay unit.
  • Provides a range of tones, from simple slap effects to self-oscillation chaos.
  • Amalgam of features from EP-3 and EP-4 hardware units, plus “digital only” extras for modern mix use.
  • Requires a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card available from authorized dealers worldwide.
UAD EP-34 Classic Tape Echo

The dbx® 160 compressor / limiter is a faithful plug-in emulation of the first commercially available VCA compressor.

The dbx 160 Compressor/Limiter is an officially licensed and faithful emulation of the legendary dbx 160 hardware compressor/limiter — still widely considered the best VCA compressor ever made. Originally designed and sold by David Blackmer in 1971, this solid-state design set the standard for performance and affordability. The dbx 160 (commonly referred to as the “VU”) is a highly regarded studio staple, famous for its simple control set and firm, distinct compression characteristics. Unlike later monolithic IC units, the “VU” uses a series of discrete components for gain reduction resulting in unique nonlinearities not found in other VCA compressors — a sonic distinction from later models. The UAD Powered Plug-In version of the dbx 160 captures all of the sonic nuances from our “golden” modeling unit, plus the simple control set of the original hardware, including Threshold, Compression (Ratio) and Output Gain. Just like with the hardware, LED threshold indicators are provided in the plug-in, as well the Input/Output/Gain Change VU meter for which the unit is famous.

dbx® 160 Compressor / Limiter features

  • Officially licensed plug-in model of the dbx 160 — the first solid-state VCA compressor.
  • Modeled discrete version with unique nonlinearities.
  • Same simple control set of its analog counterpart.
  • Threshold, Compression and Output controls.
  • LED threshold indicators just like the original.
  • Input/Output/Gain Change VU meter.
  • Modeled from desirable ‘non-monolithic’ original design, adding unique nonlinearities.
  • Requires a UAD-1 or UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card available from authorized dealers worldwide.

The EP-34 and dbx 160 are available to purchase for $199 USD each. Until 1 October you can get 20$ off on a second plug-in with the purchase of the EP-34 or dbx 160.
