Stomping on this box will be expensive
You see, this isn’t a real pedal so stomping on this one may require a new laptop. But wait before we judge this “NEW upstart tech” lets look at the real heritage here!
Universal Audio was set up by Bill Putnam Sr. way back in 1958 and is now run by his two sons.
Bill was responsible for the following:
1176 Compressor – LA-2A Compressor – The FIRST artificial reverb – Stereophonic recording (alongside Les Paul) – The Legendary 610 recording console (Van Halen, Sinatra, Beach Boys) – The Vocal Recording Booth – Multiband Audio EQ … and he worked on many many songs you likely know and love.
Today the company employs over 200 staff and continue to be on the top of the audio innovation game, this is why TonePedia are proud to have this as our very first Plugin product.
UAD never forgot their routes and even today still produce hand built vintage spec gear, but they also make possibly the most realistic plug ins on the market so lets start with the most famous vintage pedal of all … the good old 808.
Compare it only on TonePedia to the real thing and tell us, how close is it?
