Your favorite UAD Plug-ins for creating vibe
Vance, thanks so much for doing this. I really dig your work. You always inject serious vibe and attitude into your mixes. When you’re not using outboard gear for that, which UAD plugins are your favorites for shaping and creating that colored, gritty sound and vibe that is part of your signature?

I'm a huge huge fan of the '55 Fender plugin.. it's so so good.. But, the Black 1176 and the 1073 (Legacy) are the plugs that get the most use from me.. they just work and sound right everytime.
That said, what do I really dig..
Cooper Time Cube
Summit TLA100
LA2 (old grey one)

Some non UAD plugs
Valhalla DSP-All of them
HD-CART (new, 480 emulation)
All the Soundtoys..
I could go on and on..

@ vancalot do you find yourself using the 55 Fender on any other sources aside from guitars? Be interesting to have any insight you have

Bass, B3, Vocals Wurly... Drums!
