    Good Fairchild Emulation But...

    by K. Koby . 4 out of 5 stars

    This plugin is good, but I'm upset that I had just recently purchased what is now referred to as the "legacy version" when this was released. I feel like I should have received a free upgrade to the new one.

    Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection - Very decent plugin.

    by W. Garder . 4 out of 5 stars

    Very interesting plugin. Unlike the old version has some differences: 1. Has a more critical attitude to the level of the input signal 2. Button "HR" makes magical things with source 3. Compression itself works very properly, without undue influences. Plugin deserves to be in the collection.

    Great tool for specific sources

    by M. Poncy . 4 out of 5 stars

    Fairchild has met all expectations has more color than some other plug-compressors [1176 or LA-2], so it either works or it doesn't depending on source. Really shines on upper piano, helping to square it in the mix. Also livens up voiceovers. Another great plug! Thanks UA!

    by D. Owens . 4 out of 5 stars

    A very good plugin on a variety of sources. I use it most on acoustic guitar and kick drum. It stays on kick almost all the time, because it really gives the kick some thump, if you adjust the DC bias properly. This used to be my go-to drum buss compressor, because it can have a lot of flavor and agression on the first time constant mode. However, you have to be careful, because there is a boost that happens while engaging this plugin in the upper mids that can cause cymbals to jump out and sound harsh. Also, the plugin will reduce the low end a little on whatever source you use it on.

    Depending on the voice, this compressor can do a great job. On some voices, I hear a smooth and thick sound resulting from a few db of GR. Sometimes, however, the singer's peaks sound "gabbed" in the wrong way (ie, the compressor lets go at a strange point.) A lot of folks favor this plugin on bass, but I have not found it useful there yet. On the mix buss, the same potential for problems exists as on the drum buss, but the FC can really provide some nice glue to the sound. I have found this plugin most useful on time constant one. I can't really find use for the others. Great job, UAD. I have found in most cases that UAD plugins have a "vibe" that others do not.

    It might sound strange but i only use this comp when i want more loudness. It's probably not fair because it can do a lot more. It's just that i personally love it for that quality. And i have other compressors i can use to reduce peaks.
    The sound is so familliar, i feel like a pro just by turning it on. (wow i sound great)
    My initial reason for buying it was the flexibility it gives for compressing left and right channels seperatley. But then i found out it can also compress the mono and stereo signal seperatley.
    To be honest i'm still learning how to use it effectively, but thats because i am a beginner. For now i use it's functions i know, and it does the trick. Never again will i have loudness problems. And i still have a lot of dynamic in my master track.

    The Glue Factory

    by A. Dowling . 4 out of 5 stars

    A number of years ago, I spent time with the UAD-1 platform while recording and mixing an album. At that time, I recall being shocked at the quality of the Fairchild plugin, the distinct character it imparted, and the fluid restraint it could give to a drum or stereo buss. I have recently added the UAD-2 system to my own mixing studio and the Fairchild was my very first purchase. I have tried many native plugins in recent years and some are excellent but, I never did find a compressor that affected me the way the UAD Fairchild did on that project. I was delighted to discover that the UAD Fairchild is still as impressive as I remember. There is certainly a quality to this plugin that cannot be found anywhere else in the digital world.

    plus and minus...

    by W. Dorell . 4 out of 5 stars

    670 is a little more grabby, less subtle, then original version, at similar reduction 'levels', at least.
    not sure yet if it's much of an improvement.
    but mix knob and low high pass detection is cool.
    i think original fairchild plugin is a great tool.
    especially on the mix bus.

    nice box

    by B. Gallagher . 4 out of 5 stars

    It's early days but am enjoying the Fairchild collection. Love the Ocean Way bus setting in 660. Also some of the vocal settings in 660 and some of the acoustic guitar ones too. It puts a nice warm spread across the sonic spectrum while at the same time puling elements forward in the mix without E'qing.

    Good character comp, Sidechain Filter and Mix help

    by J. Gay . 4 out of 5 stars

    Useful character compressor and an improvement over the Mk I.
    Good for adding weight to drums and synths.
    The side chain filter and mix knob are big timesavers. I hope these will be added to future dynamics plugins.

    Drums galore

    by T. Malmberg . 4 out of 5 stars

    I've been using these on different acoustic drums. Buss, snares, overheads. Works just fine, and gives me more options than the basic Fairchild I've purchased earlier. If I had no compressors, this would not be my first purchase (rather the LA-2A).

    Fairchild Limiters

    by E. Hartman . 4 out of 5 stars

    Great sounding compressor I love to use on a variety of sources. The addition of the HR control and SC filter gives it a lot of flexibility as well.

    This Fairchild emulation really drives when you want it to. Kind of like a really cool distortion effect.

    It´s a fair child...

    by M. Pastrello . 4 out of 5 stars

    I really liked the sound of this one... I never even saw a real Fairchild in my life, but I have to tell you, the sound of this plugin made me wonder how good the real thing is.

    Quite satisfied.

    Peace.

    Smooth and adds life

    by M. Panagaris . 4 out of 5 stars

    I have used other fairchild plugins in the past and i can say this one breathes life into your track. Plenty of control over the plugin, the bias control is a big plus giving you that extra control that some other plugins do not. Only giving 4 stars because the new Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection is out and that has a bit of an edge over this one from initial testing, otherwise it would of been a 5.

    Perfect for tube warmth for tracks

    by H. Chahil . 4 out of 5 stars

    Love 'm plain and simple.

    by L. Kruijssen . 4 out of 5 stars

    Again a hitter what more fancy words do I need to spill.

    I just don't want anyone to ever fancy words just want them to always fancy their ears and you simply make that happen. You blew me away again last time and now just barely weeks after you're doing it again. A fully portable studio who could have ever imagined that.

    All you leave me to say is that I'm just happy all these years ago I've trusted my ears and nothing but my ears and I can leave you on bringing the rest.

    I know it's an understatement but I just quickly had to do it still just hoping it will do some good within the short amount of time I had available.

    For any one to see don't read LISTEN! Throw it on as much audio as possible!
