UA ships Moog Multimode Filter plug-In for UAD-1 and v5.1 UAD platform software 29/09/08
Universal Audio has announced v5.1 of the UAD Powered Plug-Ins Software for the UAD DSP Platform. V5.1 includes the new Moog Multimode Filter plug-in for UAD-1 exclusively endorsed and officially licensed by Moog Music Inc and developed by UA.
V5.1 also contains multi-core driver enhancements uniquely for the UAD-2. The Moog Multimode Filter employs UAâ€™s cutting-edge, proprietary analog filter modeling and is available as a fully functional 14-day demo in the v5.1 download. The Moog Multimode Filter will be available for UAD-2 in a future software release. UAD-2 owners who buy the Multimode Filter now for UAD-1 will get the UAD-2 version at no additional cost. UAD customers with outstanding UAD$ vouchers or coupons can redeem these against the purchase price of the full-blown Moog Multimode Filter and free additional Moog Multimode Filter SE. KEY FEATURES:
Extreme distortion via 0/+20dB Input Gain, replicating MiniMoog external input
Stunningly â€œanalogâ€�; Self-Oscillation, Smooth Saturation, Zero Artifacts/Quantization
Enveloper Follower, Six LFO wave shapes, and DAW tempo synchronization
Mono & Stereo processing with Spacing/Offset features from Voyager
Includes Free low-DSP Multimode Filter â€œSEâ€� version for high instance counts
Hereâ€™s what UA have to say about the new Moog Multimode Filter â€¦
The new Moog Multimode Filter delivers the first truly analog-sounding VCF (voltage controlled filter) emulation made for mixing, performing, creating, or destroying. The Moog Multimode Filter combines the best of Bob Moogâ€™s classic Moog Modular, Minimoog & Moogerfooger designs with select features from his final Voyager instrument. UA meticulously modeled the analog behavior of the historical 4-pole ladder filter including all of the non-linearities of the original. UA takes this analog marvel to the next level by combining a Lowpass, Bandpass, and Highpass filter in one unit, and allowing Moogâ€™s signature self oscillation and extreme resonance in any of the filter modes.
â€œThe Multimode Filter is our first step into a brand new area of sonic manipulation for UA and we are utterly proud to be doing it with the definitive â€œanalogâ€� filter/synthesizer company and indeed the original inventors of the classic ladder filter â€“ Moog.â€� Said Mike Barnes, VP Marketing. â€œThis product uses newly developed, proprietary and never-heard before filter modeling techniques to capture all the phat distortion, ballsy warmth, resonant squeals, sweeps and self-oscillation that are the big heart of the Moog sound.â€�
The guys from Moog also had something to sayâ€¦
â€œThe UA design team working from original Moog schematics has modeled circuit behavior right down to the individual component level. The result is a sonic tool that doesn't just sound like a Moog filter, it responds dynamically to tweaks and changes in the same way that Moog hardware does, so you can really "play" the parameters in the classic Moog way.â€� enthused Michael J. Adams, Moog Music Inc, President.
â€œThe overdrive is truly an outstanding feature; it's so detailed and organic, with all kinds of beautifully-unpredictable sonic results depending on the source material and settings. The envelope follower is smooth and musical, with a very natural response. It's easy to get a lot more life and interest out of almost any kind of digital source material with the tools this plug-in provides. I think your customers will find that the Moog filter sounds and feels like working with a classic piece of analog hardware.â€� observed respected Moog â€œguruâ€� Amos Gaynes, Moog Applications Engineer.
