Universal Audio has revealed that its native plugins are now available to purchase individually and as part of three new bundles: Diamond, Mix and Creative editions. The announcement also coincides with the launch of a brand new plugin effect, the Waterfall Rotary Speaker.

The Diamond Edition is Universal Audio's flagship collection of 28 UAD plugins and instruments, including compressors, channel strips, EQs, reverbs, delays, synths and more. 

The Mix Edition is a slightly paired-down affair with 23 plugins. It's essentially the Diamond Edition without the synths and instruments.

The Creative edition is a combination of the synths and instruments – including the Minimoog, PolyMAX and Opal – paired with the effects, so you can imagine it as the Diamond Edition minus the mix tools.

See below for a full list of plugins available.

All three bundles feature the brand-new Waterfall Rotary Speaker plugin, which is touted as "the world’s most authentic emulation of the legendary Leslie rotary speaker cabinet".

The particular model in question is the Leslie Type 147 and UA's aim was to go beyond other Leslie emulations. As well as capturing the complete circuit and tube power amp, UA has also encapsulated the 147's unique three-dimensional movement and tonal range.

Waterfall Rotary Speaker is now available natively as a UAD plug-in for $199, and on subscription with UAD Spark.

As for the three new bundles: the Diamond Edition has an introductory offer price of $699 (normally $999), the Mix Edition is currently $559 (normally $699) and the Creative Edition is on offer for $349 (normally $499). All versions include both an Apollo Realtime & UAD-2 version for Apollo interfaces and UAD-2 hardware, and a UAD Native version for Mac and Windows.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
