Great Sound, but i prefer the 1176 plugin, the 1176SE is more light
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 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.
The 1176SE is a tool i cannot do without. It's absolutley fantastic for adding or subtracting punch and/or attack. It's brilliant for saturation on your kicks and snares.
Or to , with longer release time, decrease some of the sustain.
It sounds so good and familliar. I hate it when compressors add brilliance or sound digital. This gem will make your mixing dreams come true.
When i first bought the UAD card i didn't know what compression was, i had no engineering experience. Now three years later, with the help of UAD's plugs (and a lot of mixing tutorials), i make music for television and theater. Yes my sound is that good.
Thanks UAD, you've made my life a little easier.
The 1176 SE amazed me more than once. I've used on vocals, drums, bass and it gives me great results every time. Next on my list is the blackface and I am sure it can only be great.
The SE version has lots of emulation code disabled and does not sound as bass-rich, warm and gooey as the full LN version. However, the fatter bass of the LN version means that you could actually be better off with the SE version on certain tracks when you DON'T want to emphasize the bass. Therefore the SE version is a good complement, but absolutely not a substitute for the full thing!
a good modeling classic 1176, but not the best in my opinion ;)
I use this when I really want to go for the coloration of the 1176, such as slamming in the "all input" mode. Gives all the great affect while using less power.
of great use/usage on fast transient material lacking of high spectrum. using it on raw hip hop drums.
Classic, Aggressive, Some people knock it, but I think they haven't really dug in to it. I love it!
easy to use ;
control ; strenght ; classic look ; everything is at right place ;
charisma missing. I want LN haha
very good emulation, and low in cpu... I use it a lot... probably my most used UAD plugin.
1176SE compressor is very good in open domain.
It always gives an analog sound with good dynamics.
I use it on bass, guitars and other instruments of any kind.
great for vox, bass, and guitar. Used this like I would the analog gear. I never apply too much so as long as that rule is obeyed nothing objectionable.
