Version 5.3 Software includes the UAD 4K Channel Strip and Buss Compressor 26/03/09
Universal Audio have announced the release of the UAD 4K Channel Strip and UAD 4K Buss Compressor plug-ins for the UAD platform.
Universal tell us that the UAD 4K Channel Strip is an exacting circuit emulation of the SSL 4000 G+, complete with the Type E "black knob" four-band EQ widely held to be the favorite in SSL's console lineage. The companion UAD 4K Buss Compressor, with its simple control set and transparent compression characteristics, faithfully models the 4000 G+ buss compressor.
UA Product Manager Will Shanks had this to say, "Universal Audio's UAD 4K plug-ins finally give fans of the SSL large format consoles DAW tools that truly capture the myriad of circuit and sonic details that made the 4000 such a fantastic desk to work on. We were happy to meet customer's requests for these amazing tools." Features
