The venerable V76 Preamplifier is arguably the most coveted standalone mic preamp ever made. Developed in the 1950s by the German Institute of Broadcast Technology (IRT), the V76's distinctly "hi-fi" tube sound was integral to legendary studios across Europe from the 1950s through present day, including Decca, EMI, and Abbey Road.

Now, you can get all of the beautiful, harmonically rich tube gain and classic frequency response of this iconic mic preamp in a great-sounding, easy-to-use emulation with the V76 Preamplifier plug-in, exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces:

  • Get the big, rich "hi-fi" tube tone of the legendary V76 Preamp in the box.
  • Record vocals, guitars, drums, and more through the V76 in real time using UA Audio Interfaces.
  • Confidently shape signals with an impressive 76 dB of clean gain.
  • Control UA Audio Interface mic preamp gain staging and impedance directly from the plug-in with Unison technology.

The Only Authentic V76 Preamp Emulation

In developing the V76 Preamp plug-in, UA engineers pored over an original, fully-restored "golden" unit, serial #302, based on the original IRT schematics. We modeled every aspect of its military-grade design, including the pentode tube and transformer input and output stages, circuit nonlinearities, and clipping.

Hi-Fi Tube Perfection

Brimming with tonal complexity and 76 dB of hi-fi tube gain, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in will breathe fresh life into your mic locker and give your tracks the big, larger-than-life presence heard on some of the biggest records ever made. Perfect for nearly every source — vocals, acoustic guitars, strings, drums, or bass — each of the V76 Preamplifier plug-in's gain steps will gently shape your sounds, letting you quickly dial in "mix-ready" tracks.

Unison Technology for UA Audio Interfaces

Harnessing UA's Unison technology, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the original hardware's impedance, gain staging "sweet spots," and circuit behaviors. The secret is Unison's bi-directional control and communication from the V76 Preamplifier plug-in to the digitally controlled mic preamps in UA Audio Interfaces.

Add Clarity and Color to Any Source

Of course, the V76 Preamplifier plug-in isn't just for UA Audio Interface owners. UAD hardware owners can use the V76 Preamplifier on any mix, getting bold, rich colors, without going outside the box. With the V76 Preamplifier's complete circuit emulation, you can craft your projects with the same rich flavor heard on countless classics.
