    I agree. I've been using it for a while now (beta tester) its got an absolutely amazing body. For those who like the sound of plate reverbs, this absolutely has the density and tail down--which is the real trick in reverb simulations. Check it out!

    Word and agreed. I have two UAD cards now; this is technology done right. Wow.

    Cool.

    Can I get some opinions about the compressors that come on that card?

    That's why I got the card. Love 'em. Espcially the LA2A and Fairchild.

    I love them. Deeply. The Fairchild is utterly tweakable and sounds killer on most everything. The LA-2 is perfect for other things. Longtime user, and very very happy with them all.

    Yeah, I'll have to get this one, too.

    I'm all about the compressors (I lean a lot on the 1176, too, for drums and bass), Pultec, and Cambridge. Nigel has become a sort of 'secret' weapon for certain vocal tracks (in moderation, as a send).

    I haven't popped for the limiter yet, though i will, and i'm a plate fiend, so...

    Thanks for the replies guys. Really good sounding compressors seem to be a weak point in the DAW world. On the other hand, and to immediately contradict myself, I love the sound of the Waves Ren Vox compressor on most vocals.:dude

    Hey Ed, as a fellow Samplitude Pro user, does the UAD card play nice with Samp?

    peace ........... BC :)

    The DX plugs are a no go.
    But the VST version runs like a dream on Sam7+8 and Sequoia 7+8.

    Ed,

    I went to the UA site and found that the EM 140 is a plate reverb plug-in. I love the RS in Samp! It's the best reverb plug-in I've ever used.

    So again, as a fellow Samp user, how does the EM 140 compare to the Plate reverbs in Samps RS?

    Thanks again.

    BC :)

    I'm a few days into the demo, and mightily impressed. This plug has that depth thiing that a good plate brings to the mix. I've never heard any digital pate, plugin or no, that sounds as good.

    I prefer them to the impulses...but then again with the exception of Nigel I love everything about the UAD.

    Hey guys. Just signed up here and love the recording threads. Add me to the long list of the UAD-1 lovers and the plate was an instant buy as soon as I tried it. I use the UAD-1 almost exclusively now. It really gives digital recording a kick in the ass.
