Universal Audio announced the immediate availability of UAD version 7.4 software.
The Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection models the famous Fairchild 670 and 660 compressor/limiters. These have been used on countless hit records and according to UA you can now bring their warm tube sound to your DAW with the plugin emulations. Watch Alan Parsons and other producers talk about the original hardware and the new plugins.
Also new in UAD 7.4 is the Maag EQ4 by Brainworx. This EQ plugin is modelled after the Cliff Maag designed NTI EQ3 hardware.
