Universal Audio has launched the latest update to its plugin platform, with version 9.10 concentrated on reimagining the 175B and 176 tube compressors within the digital realm.
The legendary tube-limiters were the first compressors to be made solely for studio use and as such around only 1000 units were made, making them some of the most sought-after compressors ever.
Both comps serve as predecessors to the renowned 1176 and can be heard on many a seminal classic, from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and more besides.
The Classic Tube Collection comes in at $299 and more information can be found on the Universal Audio website.
