SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 4th, 2015 — Universal Audio is pleased to announce the release of UAD Software v8.4, featuring four exclusive new plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces — the Eventide H910 Harmonizer, Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 and Silver Jubilee 2555 amplifiers, and UA’s own Oxide Tape Recorder.
Developed for Universal Audio by Eventide, the Eventide H910 Harmonizer® plug-in is the first and only end-to-end circuit emulation of the iconic mid-’70s processor. From sci-fi sound design to pop music landmarks from David Bowie and AC/DC, the H910’s unique analog/digital circuit generated previously unheard combinations of pitch change, delay, harmonization, and modulation effects.
In developing this landmark processor exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware, Eventide modeled the H910’s entire analog/digital circuit, including its custom-built A/D converter. This allows the H910 Harmonizer plug-in to retain the original hardware’s characteristic tone and dynamics.
Eventide H910 Harmonizer Plug-In Key Features:
Developed by Softube, the Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 plug-in is an expert emulation of the ultra-rare 2x12 combo tube amplifier used on the highly influential 1966 album Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton. All Marshall plug-ins include UA’s Unison technology; Apollo user’s guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into a vintage Marshall Bluesbreaker — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.
Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 Plug-In Key Features:
Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall SIlver Jubilee 2555 plug-in is an exacting emulation of this high-powered tube amplifier. With its flexible three-mode preamp section and dynamic distortion, it became a go-to for Slash, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alex Lifeson of Rush.
Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 Plug-In Key Features:
UAD Software v8.4 also includes the new Marshall Legends Bundle, featuring the Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959, the new Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555, and the new Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 — all for $399 ($199 upgrade price for current owners of the Marshall Plexi Super Lead Plug-In). Each Marshall amplifier features Unison technology for Apollo audio interfaces; guitar players will experience the exact gain staging and impedance* load as if they’re plugged into a vintage Marshall amp.
The Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in provides UA's revolutionary magnetic tape emulation technology in a simple, affordable package — with all of the essential features.
Engineered by the same team behind the award-winning UAD Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins, Oxide adds the warmth, presence, and vibe of professional analog tape to any recording.
