There is nothing that compares to the UAD Fasto. It's a gas guzzler though.

And as far as I know there is no emulation of the Harrison EQ, unless otherwise mentioned.

I use the Harrison almost exclusively as my 'character' EQ just for that reason.

I've been a UAD fan for a while now. Even though my computer can run more plugins now than my UAD card, I still think the sound of their plugins is plump and juicy.

At this point I wouldn't care if they went native and just turned the damn DSP card strictly into a dongle.

You've tried both then? I have the UAD but I miss the other features.

How is the dlm? How does it handle?

Yeah, I've tried both UAD 160 and Sixtyfive. I used to worship the UAD 160, and after buying Sixtyfive and using that, I found the 160 to be a letdown when I tried it again. Just seemed wimpy compared to Sixtyfive. Just my opinion though; not based on any scientific comparisons with the original unit. And with the price differential? Come on!

The only drawback; Sixtyfive is windows-only.

And you can get the stereo Rack version of it ("Analog Chorus") for only $5 ($3 with JamPoints) in AmpliTube Custom Shop FREE. The Stomp version is $10.

Some others from IK are the Black 76 (1176), White 2A (LA2A), Vintage Compressor Model 670 (Fairchild 670), and Vintage Program EQ 1A (Plutec EQP-1A).

Space echo levels of feedback, mainly. Timeless is an excellent tape-delay sim, but it is way more polite than the UAD version.

And is it just me, but isn't PCI (required for UAD) on its way out? Anyway, the next DAW I'll buy will most probably be a laptop. No room for a PCI there. :?

That will be why they have gone to PCIe for the UAD-2.

I don't know of any plugins, but harrison makes a DAW called Mixbus that supposedly emulates their consoles, which includes channel strip EQ.

there are a few uad plugins like fatso and studer and massive passive that i would say are irreplaceable. That said until they get off their high horses and realize an $1800 quad card running a crap amount of instances of their high end plugins, and no 64 bits, well i can see why many people are jumping ship. they are atrocious value for money.

This is NOT a plugin, but a add-on for ARDUR. And Ardur (which was once open source) got pretty much bought up, sold for a "nice" price (it once cost 99USD!), along with the "Harrison Console" plugins - with all it's bugs and whistles, and Macintosh/Linux OS compatibility only.


I've tried it - and I'll never hit my HDD, or those from one of my partners, anymore! If they'd release the "console" as plugin collection - fine. Else - hands off (IMO!).

Fabfilter Timeless 2 is totally different than roland RE-201. I have hardware RE-201 and Timeless2 plugin. Both are great effects/instruments but I wouldn't compare them.
