Here's the press release info on the new UAD 9.2 plug-ins from Universal Audio:
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • May 16, 2017 — Universal Audio is pleased to announce the release of UAD Software v9.2. Alongside the new UA-developed SSL® 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection and Pure Plate Reverb, this latest software release also offers plug-in titles from UA’s direct developer partners.
Legendary for its vocal enhancing and creative applications, the Antares Auto-Tune effect revolutionized vocal production and has become a must-have tool for the modern music producer’s toolkit.
Developed by Antares and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces, the Antares Auto-Tune Realtime plug-in offers genuine low-latency Auto-Tune effects popularized by the likes of Cher, Daft Punk, and Kanye West, as well as subtle, realtime pitch correction.
When combined with an Apollo audio interface, Auto-Tune Realtime provides the lowest latency in the industry for Auto-Tune pitch correction. With Realtime UAD Processing via Apollo's Console application, Apollo users can use Auto-Tune without the processing latency inherent in native systems.

Developed by Softube, the Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier plug-in is endorsed and authenticated by Eden, and is an expert emulation of the modern classic bass amp that has remained a staple of countless pro players including Mike Rutherford of Genesis and Mike Gordon of Phish.
Available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces — the Eden® WT800 Bass Amplifier plug-in also features Unison™ technology for Apollo interfaces. This means an Apollo user’s bass pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they’re plugged into an Eden WT800 — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

In close partnership with Solid State Logic,® Universal Audio has introduced the SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor Collection for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces — an expert end-to-end circuit emulation of the compressor that is integral to the hit-making SSL sound. The G Bus Compressor is legend for making mixes bigger, more powerful, and punchy, all the while enhancing cohesion and clarity.
Embarking on a ground-up re-design of the original SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in, UA’s team of engineers meticulously modeled every nuance of the in-console and FX G384 rackmount specimens, including their unique CV (control voltage) summing. By capturing all of its circuit behaviors, the new SSL G Bus Compressor plug-in offers the same punchy, transparent glue, and ultra-accurate stereo image of the original hit-making hardware.
