Universal Audio (UA) in Scotts Valley, Calif., announces the release of its 1176 Classic Limiter Collection for the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform and new Apollo High-Resolution Audio Interface. Picking up where UA’s original 1176LN Limiting Amplifier plug-in left off, this new 1176 collection is said to provide unrivaled emulations of three distinct 1176 hardware units.

The new 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection models the 1176 FET limiter’s entire electronic path as designed by Bill Putnam, Sr., including its transformers, FET and bipolar transistor amplifiers, and input/output distortion. It also offers improvements to the original unit's gain reduction nonlinearities and Attack/Release fits.

The 1176 Limiter Plug-In Collection provides three distinct 1176 revisions, representing more than 40 years of design iterations. The Rev A “Bluestripe” represents the original Putnam FET limiter design, complete with its higher distortion and unique FET gain amplifier characteristics. The Rev E “Blackface” covers the early ’70s Brad Plunkett “LN” (Low Noise) era of the 1176 circuit lineage, with a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification, and a change to the program dependency. The 1176AE emulates UA’s rare 1176 40th Anniversary Edition, complete with exclusive “hot-rod” mods, including its lower 2:1 compression ratio and a fixed “super slow” 10ms attack mode.

Also included in the 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection are handcrafted presets from Ed Cherney (Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt), Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Killers), Carl Glanville (U2), David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Luther Vandross), Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones), Hugo Nicolson (Radiohead, Björk), Vance Powell (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs) and Andrew Scheps (Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers).

The 1176 Classic Limiter Collection is now available as part of the new UAD Software Version 6.2 release and can be purchased for $299 via UA’s Online Store, or for $149 for current owners of the original 1176LN Limiting Amplifier Plug-In.
