If you're jonesing for the new distressor and 3 other UAD plugins, seems to be no restrictions, now is a time to grab 4 for $399 or in my case £299.00 I bought the Distressor, Ocean Ways studios, Fender 55 tweed guitar amp and the Dytronics tri-stereo chorus. Wifes going to kill me, but, I had to jump, combined price of those is way more usually.

Happy black Friday :).

Hello everyone -

2 easy questions :
1. Which pre-amp would you recommend that has balanced inputs and a nice warm sound

2. Would there be any point in using a nice old Glensound mixing console as a pre-amp or would i get nothing out of it soundwise ?

Thank you so much, dear friends

Kind Regards


My UAD-1 dilemma: not a happy customer

Hi guys,

I have a dilemma with my UAD-1 system and I thought I would share it on here to find out if anyone else has had the same issue.

Now, before you jump on me and tell me to upgrade, I am fully aware that the UAD-1 is old and unsupported. Regardless, I have a few UAD plugins that I use and I'm quite happy with them. I am not a plugin junky and use a few selected plugins to get the job done. While I'm a 21st Century digital boy I still have that silly old school mentality of focusing on the INPUT instead of the mix.

So far, nothing that exciting for most people from the http://www.uaudio.c…"]Universal Audio booth at NAMM.[/]="http://www.uaudio.c…"]Universal Audio booth at NAMM.[/] But they have introduced the plugin that I've personally been waiting for - the Mark 2 version of the LA-2A . Their old version of the plug is one of my favorites, but it was developed 10 years ago, and it's not as good as some of their more recent plugs.
