UAD-1 Ultra Pak or URS Everything Bundle?

>>UAD-1 Ultra Pak or URS Everything Bundle? <<

It's like asking: Should I get a nice mic or pre amp?

Eventually you need both! heh

UAD-1 is excellent for compression and has a few good EQ's.

URS is king in the digital EQ department.

I would buy the UAD-1 first if you need compressors and then add the URS.

I think it depends on your host. It certainly works in Nuendo/SX and now Logic. I don't know about any other hosts.

And you can always rent the URS plug-ins on a weekly or monthly basis.
And the rental applies towards the final purchase.

I have the URS and TRITONE as well as the waves...

Have you tried:

Production - Mixing - Mastering with Waves
Anthony Egizii

A CD-based Interactive Course by Anthony Egizi. This book offers a complete interactive training course featuring a 7 CD set of session files for use on Mac or PC with these popular applications: Pro Tools, Logic Audio, Cubase, Nuendo, and Sonar. Also, a 14 day complimentary software installation for Waves is provided.

I've LEARNED so much, my mixes have become much cleaner and clearer - when you read the book and hear results - it is very satisfying. The book is laid out so well, explaining every detail. From Country, Rock, RB, and Dance it takes you from setting up each instrument/sound with eq and compression or other - to setting up the entire mastering chain! YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS BOOK or the VALUE of the information inside.

You know, I read posts on here and people praise this or that, then when I experience that particular software or sound - I then come to an understanding of what people were talking about...

It really would be in your interest - If you are trying to get that - high end master recording type sound - to check out the book and waves.
