Changes in UAD v8.5 Software

  • Marshall® JMP 2203 Amplifier — Introduced in 1975, the Marshall JMP 2203 amplifier ushered in a new era of Marshall rock dominance with its intense, modern-sounding crunch and bold clean tones. Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in is a thorough emulation of this pioneering amp.< ?li>
  • Sonnox® Oxford Envolution — Developed by Sonnox, the Oxford Envolution is a frequency-dependent envelope shaper that can radically modify the sound of your sources by boosting sustain and ambience, or precisely cutting it.
  • bx_digital V3 EQ Collection — Developed by Brainworx, the new bx_digital V3 EQ Collection offers a dramatic update to the popular V2 EQ plug-in, giving you enhanced flexibility and signal-shaping power along with powerful M/S (mid/side) processing.
  • Improved graphical interface and Pro Tools page tables for existing UAD plug-ins: Fairchild 670 Legacy, Neve 1073 Legacy, Neve 1073SE Legacy, Precision K-Stereo.
  • Compatibility with Mac OS X El Capitan.
  • Mac OS X Mountain Lion is no longer tested.

The Marshall JMP 2203 Guitar Amplifier Plug-In is available for purchase for $199 USD (UAD Marshall owners can upgrade for $149 USD), Sonnox Oxford Envolution is $249 USD, and the bx_digital V3 EQ Plug-In Collection costs $99 USD (UAD bx_digital V2 plug-in owners can upgrade for $49 USD).
