Universal Audio does it again

Yes, this is truly a gem! Im actually mastering a few of my clients material as I'm writing this blog, and have been using this amazing mastering compressor. I must say, I am extremely impressed, overwhelmed, and amazed at the quality, sound, and ease of use of this plug in for the purpose of mastering.

I had actually seen one in use in a mastering session I was in many years ago. It immediately caught my eye do to how pretty it looks. But then I concentrated on the affects of its compression and what it was doing to the mastering session, and I immediately fell in love with what I was hearing. I went head and asked the mastering engineer how much the unit cost, and when he replied $10,000, I almost lost it. And yes folks, it actually does cost $10,000.

So, no need to say, that at $299, if it does what the original hardware peace does, and in a very similar way, this is an amazing deal. Not only does it do stereo master compression, but it also, M/S compression.

I also played around with the presets and they are very good, great starting points! I actually ended up using some of their presents presets and ended up not even modifying them.

So, I'm definitely going to recommend you do download this free demo for 15 days and give it a whirl. If not for mastering use it on general situations for mastering drums, bass, Vocals and anything else you want to throw it out and I'm sure you two will be blown away.
