Only one criticism - The GUIs are HORRIBLE!

They look like some 2003 legacy product: very cluttered, barely legible and very 'plastic-looking', as if the GUIs were rendered on Microsoft Paint.

Compared to the UA LA2A, or 1176 Mk2 - it's as if no effort was made to make these new compressors look "professional"....

(Please see the attached images for yourself).

Why such a drop in your usually excellent visual standards??

They do sound great though!
I love the GUI's. UA is disciplined with keeping to the point. They emulate the hardware by sound and look, no bells and whistles. These are vintage units and should look that way imo. As for the sound, these comps are truly astonishing. Worth every penny.
