Helios Type 69 Preamp and EQ Collection gives you the punchy and fat analog tone used to craft hundreds of iconic albums from Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and many more.


Add a Classic Channel to Your Studio

Whether it was housed at Olympic in London, Musicland in Munich, or in the famed Rolling Stones’ mobile studio, Helios Type 69 consoles recorded everyone from Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and more with unmistakable attitude and punch.


Get the Authentic Sound of a Classic Helios Type 69 Console

UA’s team of engineers dug deep into two original Type 69 “golden units,” faithfully emulating their distinct custom-made character, giving you colorful flavors that will bring your vocals, guitars, drums, and bass to life.


Go Bold With Colorful Analog EQ

The Helios Type 69 plug-in gives you the original hardware’s famously assertive three-band EQ, perfectly emulating the rich sounding saturation behaviors that keep radical EQ moves on all your sources sounding ultra musical, even at extreme settings.


Enjoy Thick Low-End Tone and More 

With four uniquely voiced low-frequency boost filters, the Helios Type 69 plug-in injects your tracks with the same solid and wide bass foundation found on seminal rock, pop, and reggae recordings. You can also clean up sources like overheads and room mics by switching the Bass band into a fixed 50 Hz low cut mode.


Record “Through” a Vintage Helios With Apollo

UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology lets you track in realtime “through” the Helios Type 69 plug-in using your Apollo, giving you all the original vintage hardware’s line/mic preamp impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and exact circuit behaviors.
