Universal Audio ships UAFX Pedals

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released their new UAFX stomp box pedals. Here's what they say:

Developed over three years by the world‑renowned Universal Audio team, Golden Reverberator, Starlight Echo Station, and Astra Modulation Machine boast powerful dual‑engine processing, delivering sonic authenticity far beyond other stompboxes.

In addition, UA's first line of effects pedals deliver modern appointments like Live/Preset modes with silent switching, true/buffered bypass and spillover/trails*, along with timeless analog‑inspired design and robust craftsmanship built to last decades.

Golden Reverberator ($399) packs decades of iconic reverb effects into a beautifully‑crafted stompbox. From tube‑driven spring reverb of classic '60s guitar amps, to the haunting sound of '50s studio plates, and algorithmic wonder of vintage digital hardware, Golden delivers a complete palette of unmistakable reverb textures.

Free Chamber & Plate 224 is available with pedal registration. This bonus effect allows users to further explore the lushness of era‑defining digital reverbs.

Starlight Echo Station ($399) is designed to capture a trio of iconic analog and digital delay units of the past 60 years with definitive emulations of classic tape, bucket‑brigade analog, and studio‑grade digital delays.

Free Cooper Time Cube is available with pedal registration. This hallowed "garden hose" mechanical delay now finds a home in stompbox form for the first time ever.

Astra Modulation Machine ($399) conjures four decades of vintage analog modulation effects. From cherished tube‑driven tremolo of 1960's American guitar amps to vintage Japanese‑made analog chorus/vibrato and legendary rackmount bucket‑brigade studio flanger/doubling effects, Astra delivers richly addictive vintage modulation tones with "unmatched" levels of quirky analog realism.

Downloadable Phaser X90 and Dharma Trem 61 are available free with pedal registration. These bonus effects add signature UA emulations of classic "script" and "block" phaser and harmonic amp tremolo sounds to Astra's deep tone library.

UAFX Pedals — Key Features:

  • UAFX dual‑engine processing delivers the most authentic reverb, delay, and modulation effects ever captured in a pedal.
  • Simple Live/Preset modes with silent switching, true/buffered bypass, spillover/trails, * stereo/dual mono operation, and analog dry through (Golden/Starlight only).
  • Additional downloadable effects by the world‑renowned UAD algorithm team.
  • Classic analog‑inspired design and robust craftsmanship built to last decades.

*True/Buffered bypass switching available via the UAFX Control App for iPhone and Android, coming Spring 2021. Additional downloadable effects available with pedal registration via the UAFX Control Software (Mac/Windows).
