Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v7.11, featuring three new Direct Developer plug-ins -- the Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite, Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor, and the Massenburg DesignWorks® MDWEQ5 plug-ins for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. Here's how they describe each of them...
Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite Plug-In
Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite Plug-In is an obsessive emulation of the Vertigo Sound VSM-2, beloved by mixing and mastering engineers for its bounty of colorful saturation flavors. The VSM-3 offers innovative controls for expertly targeted harmonic generation, as well as plug-in-only features such as the THD Mixer's Harmonic Balance control and the ability to run the unit's two harmonic generators simultaneously -- either in parallel or series -- giving the user even more tweakability than the original hardware.

2nd Harmonic FET Crusher for warm saturation or distortion
3rd Harmonic Zener Blender for bright, clear, saturation or distortion
Crusher and Blender can each be applied to specific signal frequency ranges and then further filtered using the Shape control
M/S decoding and encoding for each circuit allows processing of entire stereo signal, or Mid or Side stereo channels
Vertigo Sound's VSC-2 Compressor Plug-In
The Vertigo VSC-2 Quad Discrete VCA Compressor was Vertigo Sound's very first product, putting the German company on the map with its genius juxtaposition of vintage sonics and high-tech design. Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor Plug-In for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces is an exhaustive emulation of this modern classic -- right down to its four hand-built discrete VCAs -- delivering legendary compression textures with a modern signal path and controls.

Provides the rich tonal characteristics of classic compressors with modern mastering-grade audio specifications
Soft mode for a threshold-related ratio that automatically increases with higher input signal
Brick mode to operate the VSC-2 as a limiter, effectively cutting off signal peaks
Massenburg DesignWorks® MDWEQ5 EQ Plug-In
A unique, ultra-powerful equalizer, the Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 plug-in provides crystal clear processing at the highest resolutions. A go-to EQ for music, as well as game developers and engineers in film and television, the MDWEQ5 plug-in is accurate, precise, and ear-tuned by the man who invented the term "parametric EQ," George Massenburg. Key Features:
Created by George Massenburg, the pioneer of parametric equalization
IsoPeak® function for finding problem frequencies quickly and accurately
Maximum bit-depth processing with zero coloration and distortion
Includes two plug-ins; the 5-band MDWEQ5 EQ and 3-band MDWEQ3 EQ
