Universal Audio 1176LN
technical data sheet on the web, pfff I do not know why I threw myself into writing a review on this kind of compressor because I wonder if in fact it is still necessary to make a legend?

UTILIZATION

it's easy for those who know what the words mean attack, release, gain and short well yes it is super easy as using it!
but watch a bit like a Kalashnikov is not that simple because it's not super serious:) )

SOUND QUALITY

... No inspiration for embroidery

OVERALL OPINION

my comp preferred a core of studio, if you do not need to have one handy!

Universal Audio 1176LN
Look almost exactly the 1176 original, using same feeling!

UTILIZATION

Choice of 2 or 1.5 INPED KOhms 600 Ohms per switch back with two pairs of XLR male and female in terms of connectivity

SOUND QUALITY

It is certainly still one of the best compressors limiters in the market, so easy and intuitive, medium and lower medium are unmistakable, the thickness of its force to push the input materials are all impossible on most compressors current (type Avalon, Focusrite ...), the attack time and release very well calibrated, there also can work out all dynamic, the most destructive surboostage bus drums, bass drums and of course above all cash clear (architecture employed for 30 years in the studio for this purpose) for depreciation on a jazz bass through the delicate coloration very "Jack Daniels" a voice of blues!
another of its obvious applications is the compression of electric guitars more or less saturated, it will do wonders behind a Telecaster on a twin or AC30!!
even if it still does not specify that as well on all sources (notte some voices, brass)
In short it is very easy to capture a color compression and to be fully satisfied, (which is rare !!!!) a compressor that quickly becomes an ally on stage and in studio and this version stereo paired n ' to have the more versatile.
as the 1176 original, the ratio of 12 is really the most typical sound of the machine, thickness, saturation power and extreme use (release in fast max)

OVERALL OPINION

Always epai and effective
a star of the genre, have to have this machine for those who still rely on the periph hardware!
the original LN 1176 offers a bit more depth and excitement in the medium, it is very close to 2-1176 with imprssion its slightly hollowed and with a little infra superior to the original model, tuned equal to the 1176 reissue , also offers a racing threshold much larger, allowing more cuts than the LN destructices original!
Much more power in the bass than the "plug UAD1" and sound a little more precise and enjoyable, saturation occurred (by a ratio of 12 with high threshold and release the mini) is also more comfortable with much more race on the plug, the plug for the rest is still pretty well emulated.

to conclude the 1176 for me is: smooth, powerful color but fat!

Viguier's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Indispensable ..."

Universal Audio 1176LN
Mono compressor, rack-mount, XLR connectors on the back (one input, one output).
Superb machine, I expected to have all of the same hands a box "built like a tank" is not the case: it is solid but not "blindquot;

UTILIZATION

The config is very simple, do not be afraid to make express "ear" and playing with the level of (see my favorite toy compression level, until the Joemeek silent one, I know the philosophy).

So for me, we must find her again as and when a machine strong characters all the same!

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are amazing, for a "novice" sound like me because unexpected
Much exactly what I expected rsultat on bass drums, snare drums and both on guitars, Hammond organ and vocals, the effect is marked by trs special characters of this compressor .

Not at all clear my ears, it's a level alli inception, much like the vintage JOEMEEK the coup ...

APRS slap that big, I can only see the diffrence between the plug and the hardware version, now that I possde two ...

OVERALL OPINION

Used for a month, on all my mixes dsormais, even if your exact record of the bass drum to send the mix for the snare or other ...

I think one days kicking a LA3A, which I like normment plug.
I ordered another compressor high-end design LA2A for this excellent complter Universal Audio 1176.

Purchased a "virtual friend" of this site (hello you!), Used so forcment qualitprix excellent value.

Highly recommended!

******* UPDATE OF June 7, 2010 ***********
Used more often on the vocal takes ... Give a prsence and "Smack" & a grain voice truly unique and recognizable, have complete control over the voices to the mix ...
I think me get the other (s) one of these days, not the MODEL forcment this because there are multiple copies all just diffrent (Mohog, Purple Audio, Dragon, ... ).
