Universal Audio has announced the forthcoming addition of three new direct developer plug-ins from Softube, Sonnox, and Brainworx to the UAD Platform. Upcoming UAD Software v8.5 will include Marshall JMP 2203 Guitar Amplifier, Oxford Envolution, and bx_digital V3 EQ plug-ins. Here's the details in UA's own words...
Marshall JMP 2203 Guitar Amplifier Plug-In Developed by Softube exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces, the Marshall JMP 2203 plug-in is an expert emulation of the legendary ultra-flexible 100-watt amplifier used by everyone from Iron Maiden and Slayer, to Jeff Beck and My Bloody Valentine. 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 amp -- a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces. *
Introduced in 1975, the JMP 2203 is widely regarded as one of Marshall's premier amplifier designs. The amp quickly caught on with players of all stripes with its abundance of dense crunch and power.
Marshall JMP 2203 Plug-In Key Features:
The world's only authentic and licensed plug-in emulation of the classic Marshall JMP 2203 amplifier
Unison technology for Apollo interfaces offers authentic tone, touch, and feel of original JMP 2203
Five essential virtual microphone options
Over 50 presets designed by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt
Sonnox Oxford Envolution Developed by Sonnox, the Oxford Envolution is a frequency-dependent envelope shaper that can add presence/distance to drums, piano, guitar, and any other percussive content. With separate transient and sustain sections, the Envolution can radically modify the sound of sources, boosting sustain for added ambience or cutting it for quick, precise gating.
Providing a balance between flexibility and ease of use, the Envolution offers greater control of presence in a mix than an EQ or compressor, and it can also be used to generate negative ratio compression effects.
Sonnox Oxford Envolution Plug-In Key Features:
Comprehensive control of key shaping parameters including attack, hold, and release
Separate and frequency dependent control of transients and sustain
Tilt/parametric targeting of frequencies
Huge gain ranges: Transients ±24 dB; Sustain -48 dB to +24 dB
Warmth control for harmonic saturation/tone shaping
Brainworx bx_digital V3 EQ Collection The Brainworx bx_digital V3 EQ Collection is a dramatic reimagining of the popular bx_digital V2 EQ plug-in -- a state-of-the-art mastering EQ and M/S (mid/side) processor and indispensable tool for many of the world's top mixing, mastering, and post-production engineers.
The bx_digital V3 EQ adds a Dynamic EQ section, radically updated filters, and a new proportional Q mode to the already powerful M/S capabilities of the plug-in. New user-friendly features also include Gain Scale and three tones of focus for the onboard Bass and Presence 'Shifters'.
