UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection

Universal Audio in Scotts Valley, Calif., has released UAD Powered Plug-Ins Software Version 7.5, unveiling UA’s new Unison technology to Apollo QUAD and Apollo DUO interfaces and adding several key features for Mac users.

Introduced with Apollo Twin, Unison technology is an exclusive analog/digital integration system that allows for real-time bi-directional control and interplay between Apollo’s physical mic preamps and new UAD preamp plug-ins, including the now-updated API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In and new Universal Audio 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection. With UAD Software V. 7.5, Apollo DUO and QUAD users can immediately take advantage of Unison with a free 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-in provided on install.

UA also announces full compatibility with Apple’s latest operating system, as well as full AAX 64 support for Mac users, with AAX 64 support coming for Windows 7 users this spring. These new enhancements are part of new UAD Software V. 7.5, which also includes the new UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection and the Brainworx-developed Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection.

When Universal Audio founder Bill Putnam Sr. introduced the 610 Modular Amplifier preamp in 1958 it was a milestone in audio history. The 610 is famous among record producers for its harmonic detail, clipping characteristics, and ability to overdrive in a warm, musical fashion. The original 610 preamp was integral to countless legendary recordings — from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds to Johnny Cash’s landmark At Folsom Prison. Its modern variant, the 610-B, helped create new classics by Adele and Cold War Kids.

Universal Audio has fully captured the 610’s tube character and tone with the UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. The 610 plug-in collection includes both the classic 610-A model and modern 610-B hardware, and represents the first comprehensive modeling of this particular preamp design, including its tube and transformer components and unique distortion characteristics.

For Apollo Twin and Apollo DUO/QUAD users, the 610 collection works in conjunction UA’s new Unison technology, an exclusive analog/digital integration system that enables continuous, real-time, bi-directional control and interplay between Apollo’s physical hardware and UAD software mic preamp models. With Unison, the Apollo mic preamp’s analog impedance, gain stage sweet spots, and component-level circuit behaviors are adjusted in real time to accurately emulate the target mic preamp model.

Available for purchase via UA's Online Store for $299 (owners of the UA 610-B Tube Preamp Plug-In can upgrade to the full 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection for $149), the UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection is part of new UAD Software V. 7.5, which also includes the Brainworx-developed Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection and additional updates to the UAD-2 platform. Universal Audio’s API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In is now also Unison-enabled via a free firmware update in UAD Software V. 7.5, allowing Apollo users to capture the authentic circuit behaviors of the Vision’s timeless 212L preamp.
