Pass. I may have purchased 2 UA plugins in the last 4 years.

I think we've reached a point where companies are running out of things to emulate. I guess they're going to have to start getting more innovative and create things that haven't been done before, including small model variations.

I knew it. Now to decide if it's worth checking that instance chart...

Two of the most highly requested devices. Now we just need a STA Level.

22.2% and 34.3% for mono and stereo respectively.

For comparison, the 610-A preamp is 23% and 44.8%. CL 1B MKII is 28.2% and 46.3%

I never jumped on the UAD. I’m hoping somebody will compare these new plugs to some of the fantastic new native compressors coming from small developers, namely the AR-1 from Kush.

I'd seen it it was kind of a joke. The price scared me a tad more than the instance chart, but i'll have to have this one, someday.

Is there a link for more info on these updates? Does that mean you can double up channels on your console now for 2x the DSP per chan?

Nice release! Can't wait to try out these comps

I like this release. No one could do the 175B and 176 better than UAD.

Do I need this? Is this better than others insanely good compressors released these past months? Probably not, but I'll check it out for sure.

Correct. You can now use up to 2 chips per input and the DSP can be shared "smartly".

Been waiting for someone to do the UA 175B and who could be better then UAD.

Now I dont have to deal with finding 6 tubes per channel and warming them up for an hour before a session.

A lesser known classic but a true classic none the less.

Great news!

Can't wait to hear these babies. Also curious about how they stack up to comps like Kush's AR-1.

I have been waiting for these to be issued for a very long time, and my initial tests are extremely positive. In fact I think the plugins maybe more accurate and useful than most of the original hardware units out there since they can be hard to adjust and component aging in my experience has a negative effect on the sound and performance

I've been waiting to hear from you on this Mark!

Glad it's going well so far!

I'm sure this is a great release but ......still waiting for someone (please) to release an R124 emulation. The 124 is not for everyone or every application - but it is certainly unique. When Abbey Road ceased supporting their version I lost a favorite.

UAD ??....if anyone could do it, it would be you guys!

I'll pass on this one. I'm sure they sound nice, but so does all my other compressor plugins.

Big thanks for finally giving the Apollo Console some love however! Finally I don't need to use the AUX hack for complex guitar chains. Now if you could only find a way to use the Satellite DSP in Console as well (in AUXes for example) I would be in heaven.

I would love to see this too! However, I think Abbey Road and Waves have got a little partnership going with the emulations. It sucks because I feel UAD could do an incredible job!

Also, I love the new channel DSP sharing feature! Gonna come in handy when I’m on the road and have to hit the studio with my MacBook Pro and Apollo Twin MKII

I love Kush stuff a lot, but the AR-1 compressor is a completely different type of compressor both in emulation and sound. They shouldn't sound very much alike at all.

Grabbed it for $124 with all my discounts...excited to run them through the paces. I print to “tape” without the plugins, but it really helps and is fun to track while monitoring through them. I’ll save the channel settings to tweak later correctly.

Love UA for this option and experience!

Great!

The 175B is just incredible on vocals. Sounds... incredibly authentic

Nice!!

Both are REALLY great. The 175B is dirtier and darker in a beautiful way, whereas the 176 is super hifi and adds sheen.

A few other tidbits, the 175 is fixed at a 12:1 ratio with a moderately hard knee.

The 176 has 4 ratios, from 2:1 to 12:1, with the knee getting harder as you go up.
