The dominant player in chart-topping pop, hip-hop, and R&B productions, Avalon's flagship VT-737 channel strip is the best-selling standalone channel strip ever made. From Jay-Z and Dr. Dre, to Babyface and Beyonce, to Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones, the VT-737 delivers consistently polished results, with radio-ready gloss and detail:

  • Exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces, and fully endorsed by Avalon Design, the Avalon VT-737 Tube Channel Strip plug-in captures the entire hit-making essence of the channel strip that defined the sound of modern music.
  • Track and mix through an exacting emulation of the Avalon VT‑737 analog channel strip.
  • Get the full character of the original hardware's tube mic preamp with Unison technology.
  • Add legendary Avalon gloss and presence to bass, vocals, voice‑over, and more.
  • Sculpt your sources with a vocal‑flattering optical compressor.
  • Tweak sounds with four-band EQ and add high‑end detail with 32k "air" band.
  • Mix with artist presets from Eric J Dubowsky, (Flume, Odesza), Hector Delgado (A$AP Rocky, Lana Del Rey), Michael Brauer (Coldplay, My Morning Jacket), and more.

Capturing the Sound of Modern Music

After carefully auditioning multiple Avalon 737 hardware units, the UA team selected a "golden unit" with the ideal optical compression response. UA's DSP team then artfully captured the target hardware's class-A tube amplifier section with custom-wound transformer, LED-style optical compression, and discrete four-band EQ — the signature Avalon sound heard on thousands of chart-topping hits.

Unison Technology for UA Audio Interfaces

Harnessing UA's groundbreaking Unison technology, the Avalon VT-737 plug-in captures the hardware's mic preamp impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and exact circuit behaviors, giving you all the detailed sonics of the original Avalon hardware — including its gentle high-pass filter for removing mud and low-end gunk. And because the VT-737's front-panel Hi-Z input is a legendary bass DI, the VT-737 plug-in's Unison-enabled Hi-Z input endured rigorous evaluation, ensuring it was virtually indistinguishable from the original hardware.

Versatile Optical Compression

Excelling on vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, and voice-over work, the VT-737 plug-in's dynamics section emulates the hardware's gentle touch, rather than adding squash or crunch. Its relatively transparent compression also make it perfect for "stacking" the compressor again at mixdown, expertly controlling the dynamics of a vocal in a dense mix. An exclusive plug-in only, super-fast mode gives you "X4" faster attack, pushing the VT-737 beyond its physical limits, affording you tons of new dynamic versatility.

EQ with Details

The Avalon VT-737 Tube Channel Strip plug-in expertly emulates the hardware's discrete four-band EQ, allowing you to sculpt lead vocals with a visceral, larger-than-life presence and sophistication, placing them front-and-center in any mix. Like the hardware, the EQ can easily be placed before or after the compressor, and the mid bands can be engaged as sidechain filters for laser-focused compression. And with the 32k high frequency "air band," you can add delicate shimmer to everything from strings to background vocals to acoustic guitars.

Add Chart-Topping Sheen with Any UAD Hardware

Of course, the Avalon VT-737 Tube Channel Strip isn't just for UA Audio Interface owners. UAD hardware owners can use the VT-737 Tube Channel Strip plug-in on any mix, giving your sources legendary fat bottom, "glassy" top-end textures, and a bevy of clear-eyed color — without ever going outside the box.
