    The Real 1176LN.

    by J. Lardinois . 5 out of 5 stars

    There are a lot of misconceptions about this compressor. Rather, there are many misleading names.

    Some people call it a compressor, some a leveler, some colorful, and some even names like transient shaper, or dynamics processor.

    But really, it's one thing and one thing only... or best. A magical all-purpose limiter.

    This limiter is at the top of my signal chain on every track, and the results are soul-shaking. Just put the attack and release 100% clockwise, 20:1 ratio, and set to 1-2dB gain reduction, with makeup as needed.

    Enjoy your new-found mixing talent.

    For real!

    by M. Weiler . 5 out of 5 stars

    Probably my single most used plugin. I'm a proud owner of a hardware 1176LN, so comparing the two was amazing. If it wasn't for nostalgia, I could easily live without the real thing. The UAD 1176LN sounds jawdroppingly real. I'd give 6 stars if I could.

    Sounds great stacked or smashed!

    by C. Kohl . 5 out of 5 stars

    I use this typically for two things...
    a) it is absolutely wonderful when paired with the Teletronix LA-2A for vocals.
    b) I use this plugin as a send effect with drums, absolutely smashing the compression and blending it back in.

    I love it for these two applications. It has truly taken my mixes to another level. I would recommend these products to anyone who is in the business. Another huge plus is that I find them to be light on the DSP as well. Can't go wrong here...

    Essential

    by D. Castillo . 5 out of 5 stars

    I haven't worked with the hardware unit, but this has been a go-to compressor on almost every project. Love it on drums.

    Awesome piece of gear.

    by D. Tartar . 5 out of 5 stars

    If I use this it is typically on the Master Fader just to give me some glossy compression during a mix. Helps me occasionally hear what a basic master might sound like when it's been glued together. If I want to get super serious about a master I go with my Fairchild compressor and for drums I always grab the 1176SE because it's like free explosives on drums without as much suck on my resources. I mean don't get me wrong, this thing lights the drums up but I am always looking ahead and trying to leave room for more toys in my mixes. Always trying to squeeze in more UAD! I think I'll rename my UAD-2 the "One pound bag." God I love that thing!

    Just what I thought it was going to be!!

    by D. Hinton . 5 out of 5 stars

    As an avid LA-2A user, I had a certain expectation as I have used the 1176LN hardware unit mainly on vocals and I must say UA knocked it out of the park with this. I expected nothing less and they delivered.

    Great compressor

    by M. Marantz . 4 out of 5 stars

    I'm really glad UA included this compressor in my Apollo Quad bundle. It's fantastic, and easy to use since it's based on the simple but effecting 1176 design. Thanks for a great product! I will say it's not quite as good as the newly released revisions UA has made more recently, but that's to be expected since the revisions are newer technology. I still really dig this compressor and it sounds great.

    Best hardware emulation I have seen for this product

    by D. Dolnick . 5 out of 5 stars

    As my title reads this is a spot on software replica of the coveted 1176LN.
    I have the original hardware piece for comparison and the two seem to be identical from a spectral perspective and dynamic characteristic.

    Great job on this plugin

    nice and warm

    by J. Hinson . 5 out of 5 stars

    I have not used the LN only the D but the LN does sound very nice and strong just like the D.This is very usable. Never thought I could have so many 1176 units. I am in the process of building my own 1176 d from a hairball kit. I will ab then and let you know what I found.
