I own pretty much all of the UAD plug-ins. If I was you I would get the Precision Mulitband and Limiter or just get the Precision Maximizer and not buy all 3 of them. I'd recommend to get the Precision EQ and Bus compressor to compliment the other selection as as they are nice for mastering and mixing.

Also UAD are coming out with Manley emulations which is pretty interesting. Could be awhile before they are released though.

dont get caught up in the "whats good for dance music" thing. all good tools are good for dance music the only differance being the flavour they add.

i'll use a 670, LA2A or 1176 as quickly as i'd use a sonalksis compressor or a sonnox. the key is knowing when to use it and for what purpose.

the selection you mentioned above is pretty good, although i'd agree with previous poster about the precision stuff. maybe select one differant. the 670 is a beautiful recreation.

i think the only two i would add to your list is the Pultec Pro & Fairchild.. those will add some nice sparkle/overtones to your mixes

Check out the Harrison, sounds great and so quick to get results with.

I disagree about the cambridge, it sounds perfectly fine although it's maybe not going to give you much over a native DAW EQ.

Not being confrontational, I do kind of agree about the parametric eq section, but I am interested if you have found anything better for Hi and Lo pass filters with high slopes?
If so, what, I would like to check it out.................

For me, it is an essential for cleaning up the low end on individual tracks and busses.

I'd pass on the Cambride EQ and get the Precision EQ instead.

For mixing music, I would get:

Neve 1081
Pultec Pro
LA-2A
1176LN
1176SE
Fairchild 670
Precision Multiband
Precision Limiter
Precision Maximizer
Precision Equalizer
UAD plate (essential!)

You can use most standard DAW EQs and Compressors for the 'clean' side, and use UAD for the vintage flavour.

The 1176 SE comes standard. I would say out of the precision series I use the mulitband the least. Its great for effect, or if you need to really alter the sound of something, but I never use it in mastering, at least not yet.

Precision Limiter, Maximizer, EQ, RE-201, LA2A I use the most out of what I have.

I have found the precision EQ to a poor performer. Any portion of the spectrum boosted with it takes on a shrill quality that's hard for me to properly articulate. On the other hand, I like the Cambridge. And the Pultec can do amazing things with mids.

I've found nothing better natively than the cambridge's hipass filters for cleaning up lowend on tracks, if there is ..let me know!


Cheers.

Anyway I agree he ultimately needs to try them out himself, but there is nothing wrong with getting some opinions on the topic.

I'm guessing 14 at the most.

Another prop for the steep cambridge slopes here, pretty much essential.

if u already own the sonnox eq then u wont need the cambridge. I love the transient designer, the space echo, pretty much all compressors, the 88rs, pultec and the plate.
1073 is good as well.

Yeah, we've all got $30,000 vintage compressors lying around

We have real Pultecs. The UAD-1 is the closest I've heard in the software realm- there is still that 5-10% difference that is more noticeable on big boosts. The Neve 1081 is also very good...in a mix situation many people would be hard pressed to notice a major difference.

Compressors, IMO, have a long way to go. I haven't heard a plug-in that matches a real tube compressor- software still sounds 2D and like an 'emulation'.

Totally agree with you Ben on the compressor comment. I like some Plug comps for smoothing, but nothing compares to a hardware comp for adding punch and depth.
