Universal Audio releases AMS Neve RMX16 Digital Reverb & Softube Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor Plug-Ins

Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD v7.10 Software, which includes the AMS RMX16 Digital Reverb and Softube Summit Audio TLA-100A plug-ins.

UAD v7.10 Software

Developed over a two-year period by AMS founder Mark Crabtree, the new AMS RMX16 Digital Reverb plug-in is now available exclusively for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo Thunderbolt Audio Interfaces.

This long-awaited plug-in is offered alongside the Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor plug-in, a longtime studio favorite, developed for the UAD platform by Softube.

AMS RMX16 Digital Reverb Plug-In

The AMS RMX16 was the world’s first microprocessor-controlled, full-bandwidth, digital reverb. From U2 and Peter Gabriel to Radiohead and Rihanna, the unique and lush reverb programs of the RMX16 are instantly recognizable. Heard on hundreds — if not thousands — of seminal recordings from the 1980’s to today, the AMS RMX16 hardware is still found in nearly every major recording studio the world over.

In developing the UAD plug-in version of this landmark processor, Crabtree dusted off his original schematics for the hardware unit, yielding an exact instruction-for-instruction model of each of the original algorithms in the hardware. Now, owners of the Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware can record and mix with an exacting digital emulation of this unique, lush-sounding reverb.

“Only a full and faithful implementation of the RMX16 would satisfy me,” said Mark Crabtree. “I’m excited to have the RMX16 on the UAD-2 platform. I have spent nearly as long designing the plug-in as I did on designing the original unit from scratch!”

AMS RMX16 Digital Reverb features

  • The only authentic RMX16 digital reverb plug-in developed by original hardware designer Mark Crabtree of AMS Neve.
  • Harness the exact legendary reverb and delay algorithms of the original hardware.
  • Plug-in-only features including Dry/Wet Mix, Wet Solo, and easy “click-and-type” editing of control values.
  • Offers classic RMX16 Programs such as Ambience, Nonlinear, Room, Hall, Plate, Echo, Chorus, and Reverse.
  • Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.

The AMS RMX16 plug-in is available for purchase for $349 USD.

Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor Plug-In

A studio mainstay since its introduction in the 1980s, the Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor is revered for its hybrid tube/solid-state circuit, warm compression, and intuitive interface. Developed by Softube, the Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor plug-in for Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware is an exacting emulation of this legendary compressor.

Softube launches version 2.0 of its plugins (incl. AAX 64-bit)

Softube 2.0 plug-ins in Pro Tools 11

Softube has announced version 2.0 of its plug-ins, offering support for AAX 64-bit across the entire product line.

Furthermore, all plug-ins have been completely redone from the ground up utilizing the latest CPU techniques available, and most of them show a vastly improved CPU performance for all plug-in formats. The prices remain the same and the upgrade is free to current Softube users.

While Pro Tools 11 users will be happy to hear that Softube’s plug-ins are now available in AAX 64 bit versions and fully compatible with Pro Tools 11, they are not the only ones to get good news today.

One of Softube’s most popular plug-ins, Tube-Tech Classic Channel, now has a decreased CPU usage of circa 50% – meaning you can use almost twice as many instances as you could before at the same load of your computer’s processor. Summit Audio Grand Channel shows a circa 40% decrease while Vintage Amp Room, Bass Amp Room, Valley People Dyna-mite and Trident A-Range typically use 25-35% less CPU power compared to the previous versions. These examples are all for using the plug-ins in stereo and at 44.1 kHz sample rate.

Softube plug-ins v2.0

  • Same world class sound as before.
  • Vastly improved CPU performance for most plug-ins on all plug-in formats.
  • AAX 64 bit support.
  • Free upgrade.
  • Unchanged prices.
  • 20 day trial license available to all (requires iLok).

The 2.0 update is now available to download to Softube plug-in users.
