Buying UAD-1e Dynamics Processors (HW)

Buying UAD-1e

I have a Mac Pro in transit, and I am going to buy the UAD-1e Expert pack. It comes with a $750 voucher for plug-ins from their store.

I am no engineering god. I am more like a poorly dressed minion who brings alms to the temple. Nevertheless, I am wondering which plug-ins are the ones which complement the included plug-ins , and are the must acquire variety? Any to just plain avoid? Music is fairly straight forward rock focused on more traditional instruments. I'm stuck in another decade musically - "And I ran, I ran so far away..."

Thanks, oh engineering gods!stike

Well, it'll depend a little on what you're doing musically.

I'd get:

Plate 140
Pultec Pro

That will actually be about $25 out of pocket, unless my brain's as tired as my body right now...

You might as well just get two Expert Paks upfront - you'll want the extra processing and it's really easy to eat up another $750 in good plug-ins.

does it not already come with the 1176LN?

No, it's 1176SE (which may be fine on some occasions).

But with your card, you'll get a limited (14 days) version of all the UAD plugins.

So you'll may try them and choose the ones which really fit your job.

The most obvious plug is the Pultec Pro. Can't do anything without it... I have a hardware Pultec clone by Sebatron and the plugIn is close enough. Now if UA would finally build beefier cards I might even consider getting a newer Mac.
