Legendary Tube Preamp, Revisited
Used to record everyone from Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Van Halen, and Coldplay, the all-tube sound of the 610 preamp is back. The vintage sound is augmented with modern enhancements, including four different impedance settings for a wide range of microphones or instruments, while a -15dB pad allows you to drive the tube stage for even more grit and attitude. A simple yet effective EQ section allows you to gently boost or cut your bass and treble frequencies. A 3-position frequency selector is available for both the Low and High EQ bands, allowing you to add warmth and sparkle or cut mud and harshness. A helpful Hi-Z input allows for easy DI instrument recording, while a polarity switch and +48v phantom power selector make this an excellent preamp for any number of situations.
The World's Most Popular Compressor
In the recording world, the 1176LN Limiting Amplifier is a compressor that needs no introduction. With a lightning fast attack and unique tone, this compressor has been a go-to for drums, bass, vocals, guitar, and most anything else you can think of. All of the original controls are featured here, including the legendary “All Buttons In” ratio setting, which is a favorite for smashing snare drums for extra distortion and pumping. In addition to this, Universal Audio has added a new BP Ratio setting, which bypasses the compression circuit, providing all the tone of the Class-A output amplifier without altering your dynamics.
