The definitive collection of the world’s most famous compressors.

The original Universal Audio 1176 was designed by UA founder M.T. “Bill” Putnam, and represented a major breakthrough in limiter technology. The first compressor featuring solid‑state circuitry and ultra-fast 20 microsecond FET gain reduction, the 1176 is an easy‑to‑use “desert island” compressor that has lent its character and punch to some of the greatest recordings in history.

Upon its release in 2001, UA’s first 1176 plug‑in single‑handedly launched our UAD platform. Extensive end‑to‑end circuit modeling in 2013 captured even more sonic nuance. Now with updated graphics and additional controls, the 1176 Classic Limiter Collection continues its legacy of analog modeling excellence.

Featuring the 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection.

A Triple Threat

A Triple Threat

The 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection provides three distinct 1176 revisions, representing over 40 years of design iterations to the original 1176. 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, with variations including a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification, and a change to the program dependence. The 1176AE provides UA’s rare 1176 40th Anniversary Edition, complete with exclusive mods — including its lower 2:1 compression ratio.

Classic Compression, Quickly

Classic Compression, Quickly

Using an 1176 is a study in simplicity. Input simultaneously sets compression threshold and the level of the signal entering the 1176; Output sets the final signal level. Attack sets the time it takes the 1176 to respond to incoming signal, while Release sets the time it takes the 1176 to return to its initial level. The VU meter displays the amount of gain reduction (GR) or output level (+4/+8).

Ratio Buttons for Iconic Color

Ratio Buttons for Iconic Color

The four Ratio buttons determine the degree of gain reduction — lower ratios for compression, higher ratios for limiting. Disengaging all Ratio buttons disables compression, while continuing to pass signal through the 1176 circuitry, adding unmistakable color. At the request of users, “Multi-Button” combinations possible with the hardware are now attainable in the plug-in — including the famous “All Button” sound.

Added Features for Modern Workflows

Added Features for Modern Workflows

Exclusive plug‑in only features lend modern workflows to this classic processor collection. Get quick parallel processing on bass and kick drums with Dry/Wet mix controls, or use the custom Sidechain Filter to tame low‑frequency pumping. Plus, enhanced graphics with improved VU metering bring iconic FET compression into a new age.

Still the best 1176 plugins!

These are almost as good as the hardware, and more authentic in the short attack time behavior than competing emulations. Great stuff!

Great-sounding, fairly low CPU usage, but have to be connected to the internet to use native.

These plugins sound great for situations where I can't or don't want to use my hardware 1176s. They are surprisingly light in terms of CPU usage, which makes them great for secondary compression while mixing. The blue version in particular is pretty darn accurate for typical use cases; confirmed by A/B testing with my hardware.

The one complaint -- and this is why I knock off a star -- is that you have to be connected to the internet to use the native versions. I generally turn off my network connection while recording, but that disables these plugins after a short time. So, every few hours, I need to reconnect and refresh everything in UA connect.

The Necesary for you Studio and Hobbies

A quality compressor, highly recommended for any genre.

His process for giving character, arranging tracks in the mixes is incredible, you don't have to stay listening until everything fits.

Although it is not its only strong point, it also comes with 3 compressors in total, where you can experiment everything you want!!!

Great for paralleling your vocals!

I use the blue face on a separate aux to parallel my vocal chain! Gives my vocal some color. I also use the legacy RevN to parallel my music bus ! I never really used it on any main track because I feel it adds to much color so I parallel it .

Not entirely unexpected

After hearing, over the years, how good UAD plugins were, and then finally native, I took the plunge with Spark. I have to say the results are as impressive as I'd hoped! So far, along with the reverbs and chorus, I've mainly focused on the Compressors, and 1176/LA-2A in particular, and following serial compression tutorials, I'm getting the exact, professional type sound that I've been looking for! It would appear that all of the reports are true! I look forward to exploring a lot more, in fact, I've purchased bundles separately now, for as and when my subscription ends! Thanks UAD.

Absolute must have

I bought this one to finally complete the holy trinity (LA-2A, Fairchild, 1176).
UAD-Plugins seem to sound / work quite a bit better than competition plugins ;-)

Really good sounding and versatile

This is the first plugin I purchased from UAD, after trying the entire range of UAD processors and others. I think it's the most indispensable for the mix, it sounds really good, so much so that its realism can adapt perfectly to any type of track, including vocals (especially the AE version). Some times I use other compressors for the sake of choice, including an external hardware UA6176, but the UAD plugin is very practical and real and I am using it intensively.
