SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 10th, 2020 — ​Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to introduce UAD Software v9.13 and LUNA v1.1.1. These updates bring all-new products from Neve and API, along with feature updates to the UAD 1176 Classic Limiter Collection plug-in, and more.

Neve Dynamics Collection — $299 ($149 upgrade price for current UAD Neve 33609 Compressor owners)

UA’s first ever Neve compression bundle features the all-new Neve®​ ​ 2254/E Limiter and Compressor, and updated Neve®​ ​ 33609/C Compressor plug-ins — two legendary British dynamics processors powering decades of Neve sound.

The Neve 2254/E Limiter and Compressor is an end-to-end emulation of the compression module found in Neve's 80 series analog consoles. Capturing famed Neve diode-bridge circuit topology, including custom amplifiers and transformers, the plug-in offers the dynamics and tonal character of the original hardware at near-zero latency for Apollo users.

Updated 33609 Compressor "plug-in only" features bring new Sidechain Filter, Dry/Wet Mix, and Fast/Slow Attack settings for added dynamics control to Neve's premier mix bus compressor.

API Summing LUNA Extension — $299

Developed in partnership with API exclusively for LUNA Recording System, API®​ ​ Summing Extension emulates the 2520 op-amp and custom output transformer-based summing amps found in popular API consoles of the past 50 years. Built into LUNA's mixer, the extension brings streamlined workflows by eliminating the need to manage multiple plug-in windows.
