Recommended UAD plugs for tracking

I'm tracking guitars, bass, backing vocals, synth, and percussion with my new Apollo for my bands debut album.

I currently own the Fatso, which fattens up pretty much anything I put through it. I also have the default bundle you get with the Apollo.

Anything else I should get that adds some mojo to the recordings? I'm not looking to do anything drastic, just give it some vibe and color.

Considering the API preamp as well.

1176 and LA2a MkII bundles. Neve or Harrison EQs. The new API stuff is very good too. New Pultecs are phenomenal.

I wouldn't print it unless you really know what you're doing. You can always print after you track if it's running out of DSP you're worried about. I'd just monitor the processing while tracking. Just make sure you're watching the actual levels at the AD stage and not just in the DAW. The DAW level can look great since it's post UAD processing, while you're actually clipping the AD.

No doubt that 1176 and LA2a MkII bundles is so much comfortable and reliable but i am not use this UAD plug but best of luck with the new mission...
