Immerse Yourself in a Historic Room

Immerse Yourself in a Historic Room

Sound City Studios' famous Studio A is the birthplace of hundreds of hit records. Voiced with original multitrack recordings cut at Sound City Studios, we expertly captured the distinct "warts and all" character — with historical setup guidance from engineers who used it everyday — so you can easily put your productions in the same space where magic was made.

Easily Find Your Sweet Spot

Easily Find Your Sweet Spot

Simply choose your source — vocals, drums, guitar, ensembles, or piano — and get proven room and mic setups, from the big reflective sound used on Nirvana's Nevermind to Tom Petty's intimate "wood" corner.* You can even re-mic your guitars with a selection of perfectly placed cabinets and room mics.

Reposition Vintage Mics with Dynamic Room Modeling

Reposition Vintage Mics with Dynamic Room Modeling

Go far beyond historic setups and customize your space by moving a stunning collection of classic condenser and ribbon mics from AKG, Neumann, and RCA — in realtime for authentic room sounds beyond the original chart-topping positions.**

Explore a Legendary Custom British Console

Explore a Legendary Custom British Console

The centerpiece of Studio A since the early '70s, Sound City Studios' custom-made console artfully colored everything that ran through it. Now you can get the same satisfying analog character and tone with perfect emulations of a vintage British 3-band EQ and bus compressor on all your sources.

Crush, Gate, or Add "Air" with Secret Weapon Compression

Crush, Gate, or Add "Air" with Secret Weapon Compression

Along with the legendary limiting of the iconic Rev E 1176 compressor, Sound City Studios gives you the first-ever emulation of the Dolby A301** noise reduction system — a multiband EQ/limiter used and abused by Sound City Studios' engineers — so you can get the same glossy-to-hyped background vocals and explosive drum sounds heard on decades of hit records.

Add Chart-Topping Ambience with Iconic Reverb Chamber

Add Chart-Topping Ambience with Iconic Reverb Chamber

Put the finishing touch on your tracks with the same natural, open-sounding reverb used by Queens of the Stone Age, Phoebe Bridgers, Death Cab for Cutie, and more. Plus, you can season your ambient space using perfectly placed pairs of dynamic, small-diaphragm condenser, and ribbon mics.*

UAD Sound City Studios Plug-In

A white elephant

Sound: fenomenal. Absolutely no notes
Sadly, in practice it's virtually useless as it swallows your CPU like nothing i've ever seen in all of my career. Even my heaviest mastering plugins ain't got nothing on this frivolous bauble. Just a real dang shame. Luckily i bought it on a sale but i feel bad for people who pay top dollar for Sound City Studio. Brand loyalty: damaged

Try it…

…it may be a good fit, it may not, but dragging down the star rating over UAD’s current marketing strategy doesnt give anyone insight into the plugin itself.
Which for me is great! So far I have only been using it on drums but after experimenting with different configurations I found it enhanced my drum sound and gave me insight into why certain records recorded there sounded the way they did.
I can’t ask for more than that.

Convincing extension to my small recording rooms.

My drum cabin is really small but good sounding and this plugin is the perfect extension. The clue is the feature list, like mic moving flexibility, eq, and there's a big thump up for the compressor curves. The GUI is fun to work with.

You need this!

This is one of my most exciting plugins to put on a track that doesn't really have much character on. Plus gradually mixing it in on a bus can really add some nice glue to the sound

Simply Amazing.

This is pure gold.
when you don’t have the possibility to record a source in a proper room, or if your room is too dry, too small, if you need a better 3D definition and the ability to put anything anywhere..and you don’t want to spend hours on tweaking any convolution tool parameters, stay focused on the music..
well, i think that tool might be the answer.
It is to me anyway.
Brilliant !

Can’t wait to hear it

Doesn’t want to load. Seems to have a licensing bug that won’t let it load. Still waiting for tech support to fix that

Great plugin… needs an update to help your CPU

This is an amazing plugin that is wayyyyy more than a reverb plugin. With this in mind, it is still WAY too cpu intensive for more than a few instances even on M2 Pro silicon hardware. Unacceptable for the price and native only specifics. I sincerely hope this gets updated to reduce strain.

Super realistic room sound

I really cannot understand reviewers here who hear weird phasing and nulling issues. The sound of this plugin is superb. Super punchy drums, every instrument I run through this simulation just sounds better and fits in the mix suddenly. CPU usage is surprisingly low in my opinion, and native only is absolutely no problem for me. someone wrote there's an unpleasant boom with kick drums... well I think that's exactly what this studio sounds like and what it's famous for. I don't think that UA thought: let's just put in some weird and bad sounding boominess in this haha..
All in all, this one is really really amazing and instantly replaced Ocean Way and various sources. Well done UA

It's Sound City!

What's not to love! Very pleased so far and totally excited to have a little bit of Sound City in my recordings... Magic! For me a dream emulation .

The desire to produce is increased tenfold.

I really felt like I was in the studio making sounds. It's just fun. The value of this plug-in is very high.

Holy buckets.

Sounds great on drums and guitar re-amping.

I have no issue with the cost what a insane plugin

It’s awesome

It legitimately sounds like recording in a large room. It makes drums sound huge, acoustics sounds spacious, and the cabs are great for electric guitar. It won’t be the right thing for every track in the mix, but definitely a good tool to have in the box.

This will open the window on your mixes. Iconic again. It is native only so you’ll need to download UADx.

A great room

I'm still discovering its potential, but so far so good. It's the room ambience I always wanted to achieve with convolution reverb, but it's also a lot more thanks to the re-mic option, which is not something I'll always use, but it's been great with piano and sax.

Sound City Exclu Natif.

Incontestablement un excellent plugin, néanmoins j ai quand même réussi à me faire piéger par votre marketing agressif voire fallacieux et j ai réalisé trop tard qu il s agissait d une version uniquement native ... Le vent tourne chez UA ... Dommageable !

Grandes resultados

Aunque no la recomiendo para todo, si que necesita tiempo para saber si su aplicación es correcta. En este caso no me han servido los presets, he tenido que configurar el plug-in a mis necesidades. Para instrumentos como Baterias, no he notado una mejoría al instante, para voces, guitarras y piano, me ha gustado mucho. Pero recomiendo dedicarle tiempo ya que las mejoras que aporta pueden ser muy buenas.
