Universal Audio’s new 2-1176 Twin Vintage Limiting Amplifier was used extensively on the new Norah Jones album, Feels Like Home.

Engineer and mixer Jay Newland worked with producer Arif Mardin on both Jones’ previous album and the new one and used one of the first 2-1176s on Feels Like Home. Newland owns two vintage 1176s and two LA-3As that he used on Jones’ first album. Before embarking on the second album, he acquired a UA 6176 and the 2-1176.

“The 2-1176 was used on every song on Norah's new record. Recording and mixing, I would have to call it the perfect everyday, ‘go to’ piece of gear. From subtle to slamming, it sounds great on everything: overheads, room mics, acoustic guitars, vocals—really fantastic,” commented Newland.

“On Norah’s record, there are a lot of songs with two guitars: left and right. The 2-1176 pulls them out but somehow connects them together in a very cool way. At my home studio, it is the path for all the vocals: lead and background.”

Newland is planning to add the UA 2192 Master Audio Interface AD/DA to his arsenal.
