Universal Audio has released updates to its UAD Software and LUNA recording system, bringing them to versions 9.13 and 1.1.1 respectively. New processors are the main order of business - specifically, emulations of Neve and API gear.
UAD users can now get their hands on the Neve Dynamics Collection (opens in new tab) - UA’s first ever Neve compression bundle, which it describes as "analogue royalty". This contains the new Neve 2254/E Limiter and Compressor - an emulation of the compression module found in Neve’s 80 series analogue consoles - and an updated version of the 33609 Compressor plugin. This gets new Sidechain Filter, Dry/Wet Mix and Fast/Slow Attack settings, giving you even more dynamics control.
The Neve Dynamics Collection costs $299, though existing users of the Neve 33609 can upgrade for $149.
Moving on to LUNA 1.1.1, there’s a new API Summing Extension (opens in new tab) that emulates the company’s 2520 op-amp and custom output transformer-based summing amps. It’s built right into LUNA’s mixer, and is yours for $299.
