Universal Audio releases Waterfall Rotary Speaker and new Plug-in Bundles

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced the release of Waterfall Rotary Speaker, an emulation of the Leslie 147 rotary cabinet.

For the first time ever, UA has implemented their industry-leading emulation techniques to bring music creators the timeless tone and pitch-modulating swirl of the Leslie Type 147 rotary speaker, heard on countless psychedelic rock, R&B, jazz, soul and funk records.

Going beyond other Leslie emulations, UA captured the Type 147's complete circuit and tube power amp as well as its unique three-dimensional movement and tonal range with meticulously-placed vintage microphones. The result is an eerily authentic emulation of the rich overtones, harmonics, and immersive quality that made the Type 147 one of the most coveted modulation effects ever made.

With carefully-crafted presets tailored for vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards and more, Waterfall Rotary Speaker allows musicians to dial in classic Leslie effects effortlessly.

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

UA is also unveiling three new UAD plug‑in bundles, each tailored to the specific needs of mix engineers, modern musicians, and producers.

These UAD plug-ins and instruments are all about recreating the authentic, inspiring sounds of classic studio gear that has been used by Grammy-winning artists for decades. We're excited to open up even more hitmaking audio tools to musicians everywhere.

CEO and founder, Bill Putnam, Jr.

Purchases of these select UAD plug-ins include both an Apollo Realtime & UAD-2 version, which runs accelerated on Apollo interfaces and UAD-2 hardware, and a UAD Native version for macOS and Windows.

New UAD Plug‑In Bundles:

  • UAD Diamond Edition:
    • Includes 28 UAD plug‑ins and instruments, with titles from API, Moog, Studer, Lexicon, and more.
    • Intro price: $699 (Reg. $999).
