Harrison 32C Channel EQ
Partnering with Harrison Consoles Ltd., Universal Audio recreates the Harrison four-band 32C channel EQ plug-in derived from the prestigious Harrison 32 Series console. Countless hit records have been made with Harrison consoles for artists from Abba to Sade. Most notably, the 32 Series is the desk with which many Michael Jackson records were produced, including Thriller—the biggest-selling album recording of all time.
The Harrison 32C EQ is modeled directly from Bruce Swedien's own console, and is enthusiastically endorsed by the Grammy-winning Producer/Engineer. The Harrison Powered Plug-In even includes presets made of Swedien's favorite EQ settings. Swedien continues to use the 3232C console as he has for over 25 years, calling the desk "marvelous sounding" and commenting, "The addition of Harrison EQs within Pro Tools is a Godsend."
From Bruce Swedien's own Harrison 3232 console :
- Harrison licensed and authenticated
- Colorful 4-band EQ with high and low cut filters
- Favorite EQ presets from Bruce Swedien
- "Auto-Q" automatically adjusts the effective bandwidth
Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool
The Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool easily eliminates the undesirable hollow comb-filtered sound when combining out-of-phase and partially out-of-phase audio signals. Designed as a phase problem-solving device, the Little Labs IBP (In-Between Phase) has established itself with audio engineers as not only a "fix it" tool, but as a tool for manipulating audio phase as a creative, tonal color tool. Whether combining direct and miked signals, acoustic guitar and vocal mics, drum kit mics, or multiple split-guitar amps, the recorded audio signal phase can be quickly and easily controlled with the Little Labs IBP Phase Alignment Tool. Universal Audio's "Workstation" version of this indispensable tool is optimized for the DAW environment and expands upon the original design with a continuous Delay Adjust control that provides a perfect digital phase alignment option.
- Continuously variable phase between 0º and 180
- Choose best mic position, without regard to phase
- Improves multi-mike setups and DI/microphone combinations
- 'Phase Center' switch allows control of low or high frequency sources
- "Delay Adjust" adds continuous digital phase control (plug-in only)
Last but not least, all UAD-1 Plug-Ins are now available for UAD-2 !
