Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software version 9.14 and LUNA version 1.1.8.

These updates bring the first ever end to end analog console emulation to LUNA Recording System with the API Vision Console Emulation Bundle, along with additional UAD plug ins from API and C Suite Audio.

API Vision Console Emulation ($699 USD) transforms LUNA into API’s flagship analog console, combining authentic emulations of API’s famed L Series preamp, EQs, compressor, gate, filters, and summing circuits for end to end large format console sound and workflows.

API Console Emulation

UA’s first ever full console emulation harnesses Apollo’s built in DSP for low latency live tracking, switching to native processing for all mixing functions.

This hybrid DSP management builds upon LUNA’s analog inspired approach, delivering smooth transitions between workflows and consolidating multiple plug in windows into a single, easy to manage row in LUNA’s mixer.

The API Preamp ($149 USD) plugin for Apollo interfaces and UAD hardware gives users the clarity, punch, and complex tone of API’s 212L preamp circuit, with added features from their flagship Vision console including a Mic/Line switch, dedicated cut filter, and 6 dB Line pad.

With Unison technology, users can harness the impedance characteristics and gain staging “sweet spots” of the vintage hardware for signature punch and detail during tracking, or quickly add the color and tone of API’s famed mix desk across multiple channels during mixdown.

Rounding out UA’s most ambitious API release to date, UAD Software v9.14 includes the updated API Vision Channel Strip Collection ($299 USD).

This authentic emulation of API’s flagship analog console channel for Apollo and UAD hardware now features switchable EQ modules and an expertly modeled output section for added tone shaping and flexibility.

UAD Software v9.14 delivers UA’s first noise reduction plugin tailored for vocalists.

Developed by C Suite Audio exclusively for Apollo interfaces and UAD hardware, C Vox Noise & Ambience Reduction ($349 USD) combines leading noise suppression technology designed by CEDAR with Realtime UAD Processing, allowing users to easily reduce ambient room sounds during live vocal tracking and clean up recordings before going to additional plugins and processors.
