    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.

    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.

    Expectation

    by G. Smithy . 5 out of 5 stars

    My expectation was exactly as I had heard and read about UAD plugins. The 1176 series plugins are a professional tool anyone would enjoy working with. I have a small project studio and I support every purchase made. I was very excited to step up to the next level with my project studio and UAD has made my skills far more professional than I would be able to afford with hardware in my racks. The unit is everything advertised, I'm running my plugins with a UAD-2 Satellite through a Mac Book Pro and have not busted the meter yet.

    nice and even

    by M. Howden . 5 out of 5 stars

    Its like using the real thing. I'd forgotten how you could even out a signal without colouration, or dulling off of the source material. It certainly has its own sound - but its musical; stuff doesn't sound like its been squashed or mangled, like many compressor plug-ins do..
