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.

AMS RMX16

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 Summit Audio TLA-100A

Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor features

  • An industry-standard compressor for gently smoothing vocals, bass, and acoustic guitars.
  • Classic soft-knee compression can glue a drum bus or an entire mix.
  • Dial-in parallel compression with the plug-in-only Wet/Dry control and harmonic warmth with the Saturation control.
  • Low Cut Filter allows perfectly sculpted compression.
  • Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.

The Summit Audio TLA-100A plug-in is available for purchase for $199 USD.
