Way more punch and smooth than Waves L1.
A class apart! Well done!
PossÃ©dant le LN, je n'utilise que trÃ¨s peu celui-ci.
Moins chaud et prÃ©cis dans son travail que le grand frÃ¨re !
I have a hard time telling the difference between what this plug is doing differently compared to the LN version. However, as a rule of thumb I will only use it if I am running low on DSP power. In most cases you will not need to use this, but it is really great knowing there is a powerful tool on a diet to help you put the last touches on a mix. You will be thankful this is in your arsenal!
UA never seizes to amaze me. The quality and sound of this plugin is like no other. Cannot begin to explain how great it sounds. A must for any serious studio!
Big Thanks to Universal Audio for this amazing plugin!!!
I use the hell out of this thing on the drum bus. I choose it as a constant in the mix because the drums are more often than not a constant in my music and I really enjoy the lower load it puts on my mixes. It's just another way to get more power for less fuel which is what the UAD-2 is all about. I can always get way more compression out of the 1176SE and actually find myself dialing it back once I get everything balanced. Fast attack, fast release and it really makes your drums explosive. I will have to say though that during this holiday season I purchased an LA-3A and have yet to even run a signal through it. So will the 1176SE find another purpose? This is going to be a very tough one to beat. We shall soon see.
Great Sound, but i prefer the 1176 plugin, the 1176SE is more light
Loving the warm feel it gives, looks and sound amazing.
Great, easy to use compressor. UA makes great plugins! 4 stars just because it's not quite on the level of the newer 1176 emulations that UA released in their revisions package.
I recently purchased UAD-2 Solo Laptop card to use with my Macbook Pro 13" through Sonnet Echo Expresscard 34(since my MBPro doesnt have expresscard 34 input).
The bundle included:
1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier
CS-1 Channel Strip
RealVerb Pro Custom Room Modeler
I am really impressed with these plugins.
All of them sound great, and I can actually run a few before getting any DSP problems.
The 1176SE is so clean, crystal, its just beautiful. I have used several limiters before but damn this one is just cash.
I put this puppy on drums with the all buttons options and use it as parallel and my drums actually have started to sound like pro-drums.
Anyone who has the spare cash and takes music serious should get UAD plugins
the SE version of the uad 1176 stands just a tad behind it´s big brother, but if you need many instances of an 1176 type compressor and have only a small uad-2 card, the SE version is very useful.
So easy to use and can be very transparent. I love it!
I have used now on about 30 trac's this thing is too nice not to use. Works great on Vocals and Accoustic Guitars..
I mentioned how transparent the 1176LN can be on drums. I am still just scratching the surface on the 2 versions of the 1176,so I am unable to accurately describe the subtle differences. However, I would like to add that I am able to squash the hell out of tracks or dial it in so subtle that an untrained ear can barely tell it's there. I love how it stabilizes my mix.
So simple to use. Yet so effective! I love it!
From vocals to guitars, even on a drum mix, this plug-in can really be subtle.
I don't really use this one that much simply because my projects have not grown to the size where I am concerned with DSP usage. Basically that's what it's for, it stands for "Special Edition" and it was designed to be there for you when you begin to lack resources and need less hungry of a beast.
A great compressor. i use it on most things, Vocals, Bass and drum Loops ;)
I feel that this is a great little compressor and I use on drum tracks to add different amounts of compression and feel the controls allow me to easily manipulate the sound so its easy to hear what i am after quicker .
I do believe its one of the smaller plug ins and used several instances on my first pci card with cubase 6 on a pc and now ive upgraded to the uad2 solo im pleased that this good tool is included.

This piece is as good as the original, and will give you the grain and the fat sound
that we all like for Bass, drums, vocals.
Way to go UA
I usually set my release time on this fast with the knob all the way clockwise. It's a goto for adding aggression to a track like an effect, but can equally be used as an audio bouncer. This one puts less of a hit on the dsp, so it's much more efficient.
