Universal Audio Announces New Plug‑Ins From AMS Neve & Manley Labs
— UAD Software v9.15 features the AMS DMX Delay & Pitch Shifter and Manley Tube Preamp plug‑ins —
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 11, 2021
Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to introduce UAD Software v9.15. Featuring new plug-ins from AMS Neve and Manley Labs, this update brings authentic emulations of sought-after vintage and modern recording hardware to the UAD library.
Introduced in 1978, the AMS DMX 15-80 S was the world's first microprocessor controlled, 15-bit digital delay and pitch shifter. Used on classic albums by Joy Division, Nirvana, Brian Eno, Prince, and many more, the AMS DMX is famous for adding its iconic '80's-era space and depth.
Exclusively for Apollo and UAD hardware, the AMS DMX Digital Delay & Pitch Shifter plug-in brings the sound of this vintage digital AMS studio rack unit to the UAD library, with added features including Tempo Sync, Dual VCO mode, Dry/Wet Mix, and more.
Manley tube mic preamps are modern classics, known for adding richness and character to any signal that passes through them. The Manley Tube Preamp plug-in gives Apollo and UAD hardware users the same smooth clarity and front-end tube detail in an easy-to-use plug‑in.
Featuring Unison™ technology, users can harness the impedance characteristics and gain staging “sweet spots” of this boutique Class-A circuit for added punch and tone while tracking. Or quickly add the sound of Manley’s famed preamp across multiple channels during mixdown.
UAD v9.15 Release Notes:
- AMS DMX Digital Delay & Pitch Shifter brings the only authentic emulation of the rare, vintage digital hardware
- Manley Tube Preamp packs classic tone in an easy‑to‑use plug‑in
- New retina graphics for over 20 UAD plug‑ins
