Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v8.4, featuring four exclusive new plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces  - the Eventide H910 Harmonizer, Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 and Silver Jubilee 2555 amplifiers, and UA's own Oxide Tape Recorder. Here's the details in the company's own words...

Eventide H910 Harmonizer

Developed for Universal Audio by Eventide, the Eventide H910 Harmonizer® plug-in is the first and only end-to-end circuit emulation of the iconic mid-'70s processor. From sci-fi sound design to pop music landmarks from David Bowie and AC/DC, the H910's unique analog/digital circuit generated previously unheard combinations of pitch change, delay, harmonization, and modulation effects.

In developing this landmark processor exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware, Eventide modeled the H910's entire analog/digital circuit, including its custom-built A/D converter. This allows the H910 Harmonizer plug-in to retain the original hardware's characteristic tone and dynamics.

Eventide H910 Harmonizer Plug-In Key Features:

  • Exacting emulation of the original H910's analog circuitry, developed by Eventide®, exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces
  • Keyboard and MIDI control for instantly setting pitch ratios in semitones
  • Pitch change up to two octaves with signature 'glitching' effects

All Marshall plug-ins include UA's Unison technology; Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they're plugged into a vintage Marshall Bluesbreaker -- a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555


Developed by Softube -- and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces --  the Marshall SIlver Jubilee 2555 plug-in is an exacting emulation of this high-powered tube amplifier.  With its flexible three-mode preamp section and dynamic distortion, it became a go-to for Slash, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alex Lifeson of Rush.
