Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v9.1. Alongside the new UA-developed SSL 4000 E Channel Strip and Moog Multimode Filter Collections mentioned in our previous story, this latest software release features three new plug-ins from UA's direct developers –– Softube's OTO BISCUIT 8-bit Effects, plus Brainworx's bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synthesizer and Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 Amplifier plug-ins. Here's the details in UA's own words...

OTO BISCUIT 8-Bit Effects
Developed by Softube and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces, the OTO BISCUIT 8-bit Effects Plug-In is an exacting emulation of the hard-to-find hardware that quickly gained favor with EDM producers, DJs, and remixers with its lush soundscapes, waveshaping, and pitch-shifting effects.

The OTO BISCUIT 8-bit Effects Plug-In allows for creative mangling of sources on a bit-per-bit level. Users can invert or mute individual bits for a wide range of classic to twisted lo-fi effects, add chiseled crunch to kick and snare drums for instant character, or dial down the sample rate clock to generate funky, trashy aliasing textures on any instrument.

OTO BISCUIT 8-bit Effects Plug-In Key Features:

  • Exacting emulation of this unique, modern lo-fi effect featuring both the digital and analog circuits
  • Versatile 8-bit crushing with individually switchable and invertible bits
  • Analog stereo multimode filter with resonance control
  • Brain-mode features 4 different lo-fi effects: Waveshaper, Delay, Pitch-Shifting, and Step-Filter sequencer
  • Emulated true diode-clipping on input
  • Available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces

Brainworx bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synthesizer
Developed by Brainworx, the bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synthesizer Plug-In takes its sonic cues from the iconic dbx 120XP Subharmonic Synthesizer*. Born in the days of disco, subharmonic synthesizers helped overcome the low-end limitations of vinyl, giving DJs, sound designers, and club mixers pounding kick drums and booty-shaking basslines that defined dance music.

The bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synthesizer Plug-In enables producers to easily add massive low-end punch without affecting the midrange. Its third synthesis band extends the upper end of the synthesis range from 56 Hz up to 80 Hz, allowing for the processing of a wider range of sources, from electronic kick drums to bass synths and more.

Brainworx bx_subsynth Subharmonic Synthesizer Plug-In Key Features:

  • Three-band subharmonic synthesis with individual additive parameter adjustment for adding massive low-end punch without affecting other frequencies
  • Dual-mode saturation section with Filtering and Intensity controls
  • Mid or Stereo Synthesis Input control allows subharmonics to be generated on either mono or stereo information
  • M/S section with Mono Maker and Stereo Width allows precise control over the stereo field

Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 Amplifier
Developed by Brainworx and officially endorsed by Fuchs Audio Technology, the Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 Amplifier Plug-In expertly captures all of the "Dumble-inspired" nuance and tube-powered tone shaping of this legendary boutique amplifier and adds 82 high-end recording chains as well as onboard vintage delay, noise gate, and lo/hi pass filters for further tone shaping.

The Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 also features Unison™ technology for Apollo interfaces. This means Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they're plugged into a Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 –– a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50 Amplifier Plug-In Key Features:

  • Exacting emulation of the original "Dumble-inspired" Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 50-watt guitar amp

  • 82 Recording Chains with multiple speaker cabinets, mics, and outboard gear
