New plug-ins accompany enhancements to Pro Tools workflow and ATR-102 plug-in in UAD Software v6.1 03/11/11
Universal Audio has released UAD Software v6.1, featuring the new MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In, the Little Labs Voice of God (VOG) Bass Resonance Tool, plus enhancements to Pro Tools workflow and the Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder Plug-In. Here's the full details in UA's own words...
MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In
Developed in close collaboration with Dunlop Manufacturing, the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in for the UAD-2 platform replicates the legendary sound of this classic bucket-brigade flanging effect with unparalleled accuracy. Through its signature flanging, doubling, and delay effects, the MXR Flanger/Doubler imprints a unique stamp on guitars, bass, keys, drums, or just about any source. The MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In also includes additional "UAD Exclusive" features and artist presets from legendary engineers Vance Powell (The Dead Weather, Buddy Guy), Neil Dorfsman (Paul McCartney, Sting), and Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Jeff Beck).
Jeorge Tripps, Dunlop's Director of Product Development, had this to say, "We knew there was only one company we could turn to when it came time to create a plug-in version of the classic MXR Flanger/Doubler. The UA emulation is spot-on, and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction from musicians and engineers."
Little Labs Voice of God (VOG) Bass Resonance Tool
The Little Labs-authenticated Voice of God (VOG) plug-in for the UAD-2 platform accurately models the sonic characteristics of this unique 500-series hardware audio processor in every detail. The VOG is used to accurately target and accentuate low frequency material, from vocals to bass guitar and drums -- adding both heft and precision far beyond a simple EQ.
Jonathan Little of Little Labs Professional Audio, commented, "The VOG has been very well-received for its ability to quickly and easily manipulate low end like nothing before it. Our hardware version was first available in the API 500-Series format, then as the i-VOG and a standalone unit. Now, UA has put the VOG live in the digital world as well, covering all the bases."
Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio, had this to say about both, "I'm excited about the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in, as I used to have a hardware unit in my rack and I still miss it. Our collaboration with Dunlop has resulted in an extremely faithful plug-in emulation. Add in the Little Labs Voice of God, which is really a must-have tool, and UAD v6.1 offers a solid enhancement to the UAD-2 platform."
These new plug-ins are available as part of the new UAD Software v6.1 release. In addition to the MXR Flanger/Doubler and Little Labs VOG plug-ins, v6.1 includes additional enhancements to Pro Tools workflow and the Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder plug-in. Pricing and Availability:
Available for purchase via UA's Online Store, the MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In sells for $199. The Little Labs VOG Bass Resonance Tool sells for $149.
