“Capturing “the moment” is crucial — and capturing that nspiration with the  right sound is just as important. The   new Century Tube Channel Strip plug-in hearkens back to the days before  infinite undo and decision-deferral, to a time where making records was an  immediate, visceral act of bold creativity.

With an organic tube mic preamp,  transparent dynamics control, and intuitively voiced EQ, the Century plug-in is perfect for UA Interface users, allowing you to stay in the  creative zone while you record, helping  you capture first-take magic, with  stunning results”

Universal Audio does it again

UAD's century tube channel strip plug-in comes with a high-pass frequency filter, microphone preamp, a compressor, and a master section, amongst other features. I've been using the neve 1073 unison preamp plug-ing on my UA console, but now I am curious to see what this preamp sounds like! So.. I will be running some tests and experiments to see what differences there will be frequency responses and audio coloring. Although I have been a Neve lover for many years

This channel strip is a very good option do to Real estate on UAD memory! I have an Apollo quad myself and find myself getting close to maxing out my memory. This is because I do use hi quality UAD plug-ins on my UAD Console, and in my ProTools mixer both in the mixing stage, and in my mastering chain.

Let me remind you all though, you get to steal Bill Putnam’s mic amp collection! Now there is a great steal!

UAD along with all the top players in the audio/Production industry are competing hard and working diligently to bring to us an amazing emulation of the worlds top gear both new and used. It is a major plus with today's Technology and way of working. This was not possible a few years back. We would have to spend thousands of dollars to purchase just one piece of amazing sounding gear. And even then. it's for only one instance per mix, and I'm not even going to touch the subject of instant recall, or automation capabilities we have today with all this new  plug-in technology.

Thanks once again for stopping by and please don't forget to subscribe and visit the (scitscat) website for great pricing and availability, and great sounding gear!

Truly yours
