Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v8.6. Alongside the new UAD Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe Plug-In (see separate story), this latest software release features two exclusive new plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces -- the Softube-developed Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ and the Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2. Here's the details in UA's own words...
Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ Plug-In Developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform by Softube, the Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ plug-in is an exacting emulation of this ultra-boutique, inductor-based EQ. Based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk from Abbey Road Studios, the same one used to record Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles' Abbey Road, Chandler Limited's Curve Bender Mastering EQ takes the warm, legendary sonics of the vintage EMI unit, and expands it into a powerful mastering EQ.*
Endorsed by Chandler Limited founder Wade Goeke, Softube emulated the Chandler Limited's Curve Bender circuits end-to-end, including its filter inductors, germanium transistors, transformers, and circuit nonlinearities. This allows the Curve Bender plug-in to retain the hardware's rich harmonics and vintage tone.
Exacting emulation of this modern classic EQ for mixing and mastering, fully authenticated by Chandler Limited

Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 Plug-In
The Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 plug-in transparently increases the volume, density, and presence of your tracks without losing transients or dynamics. Featuring the latest generation of Oxford Limiter's inter-sample peak (ISP) detection -- introduced for the first time on the UAD platform -- this powerful plug-in is an essential tool for engineers looking for an uncolored, accurate limiter as a "final stage" for their masters.

Professional mastering-grade peak limiting with attack, release and variable soft-knee
Enhance section to increase perceived loudness without gain pumping effects
Auto Comp fixes reconstruction errors without losing overall loudness, while conforming to the industry's true peak measurement standard (ITU-R BS. 1770-4)
