What makes this emulation especially exciting is that it was designed in conjunction with the team at Tube-Tech manufacturers of the hardware CL 1B and is said to meet their exacting standards. Overall, the CL 1B really is a fantastic compressor plug-in that’s capable of both subtle containment and excellent audible colour. It has the level of control you would expect from a fully featured Great addition to Greatness I seems like it actually has maybe a wewe bit more headroom, or maybe the combination with my new Apollo 8 upgrade from my Apollo is contributing. This circuit contains semiconductor OP-amps for the entire control.

Liljegren August 10, I was hoping UA would release a version of this unit, and they did! Nodurft May 7, When the CL 1B is set to around a 3: I suspect that part of this is that, as mentioned above, the the hardware has greater headroom, which gives it a broader ballistic range. Definately my new “go-to” compressor.

System requirements Mac OS X That is a statement that is hard to describe other than to say that the Mk II seats itself in a mix like the hardware, and can be more or less indistinguishable on multiple sources in a dense mix.

Schmidl September 20, In fixed mode it functions as a vintage-style compressor with predetermined settings of 1 msec attack and 50 msec release. Input and output transformers have a static-screen between the primary and secondary wirings. It works amazingly when tecch with my Manley Reference mic.

The new versions offer improved graphics and use the latest advances in analog circuit modeling. After 7 days recording with the demo, allowing myself a Thbe evaluation, I will say it’s pretty much spot on to the hardware unit. That, combined with the CL 1B in the chain make this plugin bulletproof!

Softube and Tube-Tech go way back. Improved sound, with a total remodel of the CL 1B, along with an update to the EQs using our latest signal processing technology.

Sound Examples Male Vocals A bypass http: The amplifier section in the CL 1A is hardwired. Building on the success of our original Tube-Tech plug-ins, we added features like parallel blend and side-chain low cut to the CL 1B.

The yube and release options on the CL 1B are deceptively flexible, with enough variability to create ‘snap’-style compression ideal for snares and pumping over-compression great on overheads without nasty, distorted artifacts.
