Universal Audio has introduced UAD Software v9.15, an update which brings authentic emulations of sought-after vintage and modern recording hardware to the UAD library.

The new AMS DMX Digital Delay & Pitch Shifter is available for $299 USD.

Introduced in 1978, the AMS DMX 15-80 S was the world’s first microprocessor controlled, 15-bit digital delay and pitch shifter. Used on classic albums by Joy Division, Nirvana, Brian Eno, Prince, and many more, the AMS DMX is famous for adding its iconic ’80’s-era space and depth.

Exclusively for Apollo and UAD hardware, the AMS DMX Digital Delay & Pitch Shifter plugin brings the sound of this vintage digital AMS studio rack unit to the UAD library, with added features including Tempo Sync, Dual VCO mode, Dry/Wet Mix, and more.

Also available is the Manley Tube Preamp plugin, priced $149 USD.

Manley tube mic preamps are modern classics, known for adding richness and character to any signal that passes through them. The Manley Tube Preamp plugin gives Apollo and UAD hardware users the same smooth clarity and front-end tube detail in an easy-to-use plug in.

Featuring Unison™ technology, users can harness the impedance characteristics and gain staging “sweet spots” of this boutique Class-A circuit for added punch and tone while tracking. Or quickly add the sound of Manley’s famed preamp across multiple channels during mixdown.

UAD v9.15 also comes with new retina graphics for over 20 UAD plugins, and support for Apple Silicon Macs and macOS 11 Big Sur.
