UA launches v4.10 for UAD including VCA VU Compressor and Precision Enhancer kHz 17/03/08
Universal Audio has officially announced the web release of v4.10 software for the UAD Family of DSP Cardâ€™s & Powered Plug-Ins, as previewed here a couple of weeks ago. Version 4.10 includes 14-day fully functional demos of both the new VCA VU Compressor (a faithful emulation of the classic discrete dbx 160 VU compressor) and new Precision Enhancer kHz; a UA-developed multi-mode Enhancer using unique equalization and dynamic expansion technology.
Mike Barnes, UAâ€™s VP of Marketing, told us,â€œWe are continuing to rapidly expand our unique UAD plug-in portfolio with a two-pronged approach including a) cloning distinguished outboard classics from the historical archives such as the new VCA VU Compressor and b) innovating our own flavor of studio problem-solving utilities such as the Precision Enhancer kHz while keeping prices accessible to our project studio customers.â€� Key VCA VU Compressor/Limiter Features:
Plug-in emulation of the dbx 160, the very first solid-state VCA compressor
Faithfully modeled, same simple control set of its analog counterpart
Threshold, Compression and Output controls with VU meter mode selection
Modeled from desirable â€˜non-monolithicâ€™ original design, adding unique nonlinearities
Key Precision Enhancer kHz Features:
Modern enhancement tool for dull or poorly recorded tracks
Designed for minimal repairs or drastic alteration
Five enhancement modes ensure maximum versatility with the widest array of material
Sensitivity control blends effected signal into original signal
Sweepable high-frequency emphasis selection plus speed control for smooth or aggressive response
