Universal Audio releases new UAD plugins
Universal Audio releases UAD Software v8.4, featuring four exclusive new plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces.
Developed for Universal Audio by Eventide, the Eventide H910 Harmonizer plug-in is announced as the first end-to-end circuit emulation of the iconic mid-’70s processor known for its combinations of pitch change, delay, harmonization, and modulation effects.
In developing this processor exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware, Eventide modeled the H910’s entire analog/digital circuit, including its custom-built A/D converter, thus allowing the H910 Harmonizer plug-in to retain the original hardware’s characteristic tone and dynamics.
The Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 plug-in is an emulation of the rare 2x12 combo tube amplifier used on the 1966 album Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton.
Developed by Softube, the Marshall SIlver Jubilee 2555 plug-in offers a flexible three-mode preamp section and dynamic distortion.
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, and guitar players can experience the exact gain staging and impedance load as if they were plugged into a vintage Marshall amp — a function not available on original silver Apollo DUO and QUAD rackmount interfaces or Apollo FireWire.
The Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in provides UA's magnetic tape emulation technology in a simple, affordable package — with all of the essential features. Engineered by the same team behind the UAD Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins, Oxide is said to add the warmth, presence, and vibe of professional analog tape to any recording.
Customers who purchase the Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in are eligible for a special upgrade price to UA’s Magnetic Tape Bundle, which includes the Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins.

The plug-in, which is officially endorsed by Fender, recreates a mid-‘50s-era Deluxe model 5E3, a vaunted amp that could deliver everything from warm clean tones to creamy smooth distortion. As with any UAD-2 plug-in you need either an Apollo interface or other UAD-2 hardware to run it.
