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.

    Vocoders have been around for many years, and have been used on many productions. It's an interesting tool, but a fun one at that. The idea of being able to transform any vocal into a weird robotic sound, or controlling the melodic structure of any source going in, makes a vocoder a great tool to have in your arsenal. Even though it's not your every day go to plug in, it can be useful in adding that extra sizzle to your production. There are many great Productions are up there that has used this technique to make a vocal stand out in a special way. Daft Punk is a good example of using this tool in a very powerful and creative fashion. The other positive note I'd like to make I'm using this type of plug in, is that it doesn't take a lot of experience in allowing you to use this. It's basically an experimental process and the one that you can try many different options until you hear something that's pleasing and interesting to the ear.

    Here is just some of the cool features this plug in offers:

    • Generates iconic robotic vocal textures with classic analog vocoder tone
    • 12-voice polyphonic carrier synth with multiple waveforms and selectable octave
    • Freeze function can be DAW-synced to clock division, or controlled via MIDI
    • Variable bands (4, 8, 12, 16, 20) offering vintage to modern vocoding effects
    • Notes and chords can be entered in real time with the built-in keyboard or via MIDI

    So.. Do yourself a favor and go to the UA website and download the free demo, and see i this plug in is for you. Remember though, it should be used in a proper situation and with a creative state of mind. Experiment with as many vocal tracks as you can, and then make your decision.
