Universal Audio releases UAD Software v9.9 - Capitol Chambers Plug-in

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released UAD Software v9.9 featuring the Capitol Chambers plug-in, a plug-in emulation of Capitol Studios' iconic underground echo chambers, exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.

Capitol Chambers Plug-In — $349

The subterranean echo chambers at Capitol Studios were designed by recording pioneer Les Paul. Known for their smooth response and lengthy decay times, these chambers have graced thousands of hits — from Ray Charles to Frank Sinatra, Beck to Muse.

In crafting the Capitol Chambers plug-in, UA were granted access to Capitol's four most popular chambers, 30-feet beneath the studio, and used historic technical diagrams from the early '60s to recreate the exact microphone and speaker/horn arrangements. New and creative mic/speaker combos were also devised by UA and Capitol's chief engineer, Steve Genewick.

Harnessing the same technology as the Ocean Way Studios plug-in, Capitol Chambers uses UA's proprietary Dynamic Room Modeling technology, an exclusive combination of physical modeling and advanced measurement techniques, letting the user reposition the mics within the chamber for next-level ambience control.

Capitol Chambers Plug-In Key Features:

  • Precisely modeled emulation of Capitol Studios' historic echo chambers, exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces.
  • Licensed and endorsed by Capitol Studios with mic/speaker setups curated by Capitol's Steve Genewick.
  • Dynamic Room Modeling allows users to create new sounds by repositioning chamber microphones.
  • Access the chamber's entire signal chain including amplifiers, speakers, custom preamps, and mics.
  • Presets from legendary Grammy-winning engineers Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Steely Dan), Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead), Frank Filipetti (Madonna, Paul McCartney) and more.
  • Other features include adjustable Decay, Pre Delay, sweepable low-cut filter, three-band EQ, Dry/Wet mix, and Width.
