Universal Audio today updated their UAD powered Plug-in platform to version 9.4 which adds several new devices. One of the real biggies being the Empirical Labs EL8 Distressor - the highly regarded and unique compressor which has been one of the "must-have" modern dynamics processor, prized for its unique tonal character and super fast attack time.

We got a visit from the UA folks, who gave us a headsup on the new plug-ins and demonstrated just what makes it so special.

Version 9.4 is available right now with the pricing of the new plug-ins as follows:

  • Empirical Labs® EL8 Distressor £249
  • Dytronics® Tri-Stereo Chorus £149
  • Gallien-Krueger® 800RB Bass Amp £115
  • Ocean Way® Microphone Collection £189
  • Marshall® Plexi Classic (FREE for Apollo owners)
  • Latest OS Compatibility for Windows & Mac
