Scotts Valley, CA (November 14, 2011)—Universal Audio has released UAD Software v6.1.
The software features the new MXR flanger/doubler plug-in, the Little Labs Voice of God (VOG) bass-resonance tool, as well as enhancements to Pro Tools workflow and the Ampex ATR-102 mastering tape recorder plug-in.
Developed in collaboration with Dunlop Manufacturing, the MXR flanger/doubler plug-in for the UAD-2 platform reportedly replicates the sound of the flanging effect accurately with its signature flanging, doubling and delay effects. The plug-in also includes additional "UAD Exclusive" features and artist presets from engineers Vance Powell (The Dead Weather, Buddy Guy), Neil Dorfsman (Paul McCartney, Sting) and Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Jeff Beck).
"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," says Jeorge Tripps, Dunlop's director of product development. "The UA emulation is spot-on, and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction from musicians and engineers."
The Little Labs-authenticated Voice of God (VOG) plug-in for the UAD-2 platform models the sonic characteristics of this 500-series hardware audio processor. The VOG is used to target and accentuate low-frequency material, from vocals to bass guitar and drums. "The VOG has been very well-received for its ability to quickly and easily manipulate low end like nothing before it," says Jonathan Little of Little Labs Professional Audio. "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."
UAD Software v6.1 is available as a free download for Mac and PC users worldwide.
