Scotts Valley, CA (November 26, 2013)—Universal Audio has announced a new addition to its UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform with the Fairchild Tube Limiter Plug-In Collection, emulating the Fairchild 670 and 660 tube limiters.
In 2004, Universal Audio released the Fairchild 670 Legacy plug-in. The new UAD Fairchild Limiter Collection is based on an accurate circuit model of Ocean Way’s “golden-reference” units.
The Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection also offers “digital only” features such as sidechain filtering, dry/wet parallel blend, and headroom controls, giving owners of Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware modern workflow appointments.
According to UA, each plug-in models an entire electronic path, including tube amplifiers and transformers, for complete analog color and behavior. The plugs offer Lateral-Vertical mode for stereo imaging and balance control, and require UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interfaces, available from authorized dealers worldwide.
