1176 v 6176 components

The 6176/quad offer from UA at the moment is pretty attractive.

Just wondering how different the compressor section of the 6176 is from the 1176 in terms of the components used, transformers etc?

Do they generally sound and behave the same way?

Does the 6176 'All' setting give the same crunchy effect as all buttons on the 1176?

Would the 6176 have the same/more/less mojo than the 1176LN uad plugin? I use this plug on pretty much everything, all buttons, fast release. Would the 6176 sound any more exciting?

No one's ever heard a 6176 & 1176 side by side?

the UAD plugin is like ten years old. technology has evolved since.
to me UAD card is just an ilok in disguise. computers today are fast enough to handle native plugins. plugins are good though.

any one on the hardware comparison? it would be a freakin no-brainer in case the 6176 would have near the same sonics as a solitary 1176

,,But just as important is sound. Indeed, the beauty of the 6176 is that it rides gain just like an 1176LN
and it sounds quite a bit like one, yet it still delivers its own sonic signature. It features an all-new
MOSFET regulated power supply, which not only tightens up bass response but also reduces self-
induced noise, making the 6176 a quieter, more “hi-fi” version of the original 1176LN. ''

from the universal audio 6176 manual

Dunno, but how well does the plugin work tracking to tape or mixing in the analog domain on an LFAC?
Tracking drums?

I'm sorry to see the demise of this thread as I was interested in people's opinion about the difference in the two HARDWARE units.

Maybe I should try the high end forum. Is the 1176 regarded as high end?

It is. And I am also interested in this.

This thread sadly shows what level of capacity some of the participants in such forums have of properly understanding the topic content

...unless they intend to troll and hijack the thread.

It's not only happening here, but also in many other forums I come across to.

Please try again in High End forum, for both 1176 and 6176 are at the higher end of the pro audio spectrum, and abandon this thread.

Old 1176's used carbon resistors. United uses carbon film resistors. They don't sound alike.

You couldn't be more wrong. UAD-2 cards provide HUGE amounts of DSP power, which takes a HUGE load off the CPU.

Take a look at how many instances of plugins you can run on the various cards: UAD Instance Chart A Quad card can handle 140 instances of the Neve 88RS channel strip in mono - like having a 140 channel Neve console.

So it's a bit more than "just an iLok in disguise".

since a Quad UAD with Neve bundled is more than 1700 euros, which is WAY more expensive than a brand new 21" Quad Core i5 iMac, i sure hope it's a bit powerful.
