Universal Audio releases UAD Software v8.4 — Eventide H910 Harmonizer, Marshall Amplifiers, Oxide Tape Recorder

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v8.4, featuring four exclusive new plug-ins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces — the Eventide H910 Harmonizer, Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 and Silver Jubilee 2555 amplifiers, and UA's own Oxide Tape Recorder.

Developed for Universal Audio by Eventide, the Eventide H910 Harmonizer plug-in ($249) is the first and only end-to-end circuit emulation of the iconic mid-'70s processor. From sci-fi sound design to pop music landmarks from David Bowie and AC/DC, the H910's unique analog/digital circuit generated previously unheard combinations of pitch change, delay, harmonization, and modulation effects.

In developing this processor exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware, Eventide modeled the H910's entire analog/digital circuit, including its custom-built A/D converter. This allows the H910 Harmonizer plug-in to retain the original hardware's characteristic tone and dynamics.

Eventide H910 Harmonizer Plug-In Key Features:

  • Exacting emulation of the original H910's analog circuitry, developed by Eventide, exclusively for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces.
  • Keyboard and MIDI control for instantly setting pitch ratios in semitones.
  • Pitch change up to two octaves with signature 'glitching' effects.

Developed by Softube, the Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 plug-in is an expert emulation of the ultra-rare 2x12 combo tube amplifier used on the highly influential 1966 album Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton. All Marshall plug-ins include UA's Unison technology; Apollo user's guitar pickups will see the exact impedance load as if they're plugged into a vintage Marshall Bluesbreaker — a feature found only on Apollo audio interfaces.

Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 Plug-In Key Features:

  • The world's only authentic and licensed plug-in emulation of the classic Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 combo amplifier.
  • Unison technology for Apollo interfaces offers authentic tone, touch, and feel of original Bluesbreaker.
  • Three different virtual microphone combinations — FET, Valve, and Dynamic.
  • Onboard mixer features microphone level and pan.
  • 50 presets designed by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt.

Developed by Softube — and available exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces — the Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 plug-in ($199) is an exacting emulation of this high-powered tube amplifier. With its flexible three-mode preamp section and dynamic distortion, it became a go-to for Slash, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alex Lifeson of Rush.

Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555 Plug-In Key Features:

  • The world's only authentic and licensed plug-in emulation of the classic Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555.
  • Unison technology for Apollo interfaces offers authentic tone, touch, and feel of original Silver Jubilee.
  • Two different virtual microphone combinations — Condenser and Dynamic.
  • Onboard mixer features microphone level and pan.
  • 50 presets designed by legendary AC/DC engineer Tony Platt.

UAD Software v8.4 also includes the new Marshall Legends Bundle, featuring the Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959, the new Marshall Silver Jubilee 2555, and the new Marshall Bluesbreaker 1962 — all for $399 ($199 upgrade price for current owners of the Marshall Plexi Super Lead Plug-In). Each Marshall amplifier features Unison technology for Apollo audio interfaces; guitar players will experience the exact gain staging and impedance* load as if they're plugged into a vintage Marshall amp.

The Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in ($149) provides UA's magnetic tape emulation technology in a simple, affordable package with all of the essential features.

Engineered by the same team behind the award-winning UAD Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins, Oxide is designed to add the warmth, presence, and vibe of professional analog tape to any recording.

Customers who purchase the Oxide Tape Recorder plug-in are eligible for a special upgrade price to UA's Magnetic Tape Bundle, which includes the feature-rich Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Machine and Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Machine plug-ins.

Oxide Tape Recorder Plug-In Key Features:

  • Easily provides the warmth, color, and punchy low-end response of large format analog tape machines.
  • Musical tape saturation and circuit overdrive via simple Input/Output controls.
  • Features 7.5 and 15 IPS Tape Speeds and two emphasis curves for colorful tape textures.
