German company EMT made a breakthrough in 1957 with the release of the EMT 140, which utilized a resonating metal plate to create ambience. However, plate reverb systems are expensive, bulky, need to be isolated from vibration and maintained regularly-therefore plates are usually found only in major studios. Universal Audio accurately recreates that sound with the Plate 140 plug-in. The Plate 140 replicates the sonic signature of three uniquely different EMT 140s installed at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, CA. The GUI is closely based on real plate system components with additional controls for DAW users.
- Highly prized smooth and natural plate sound.
- Based on plates from The Plant Studios.
- Three plates – each with a unique sound.
- Decay, two-band EQ, predelay, width & wet/dry.
A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
