As we know the Universal Audio Apollo system has the abillity to run real-time DSP processing on inputs. The new UA 610 mic preamp and EQ models takes the Bill Putnam's classic designs from the early 1960's which have been valued for their harmonic detail and musical drive - its all over the Beach Boy's Pet Sounds. The new version, the 610-B has been updated to reflect more modern requirements.
Additionally the Unison technology allows the plug-ins to actively adjust the physical hardware properties of the electronics, namely the impedance and "gain stage sweet spot" has been implemented.
In this review, Tosh takes us through the features of the preamps applying them to a variety of inputs.
The 610 Collection is available now via the UAD Store priced at $249.
