Universal Audio has released new UAD software v6.3.2, bringing the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Plug-In and Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo Audio Interface. The Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Plug-In is a true-to-life emulation of Shadow Hills’ hallmark Mastering Compressor, featuring a world-class signal path that controls music dynamics in two stages – first with an optical section, then with a discrete (VCA) section. Both sections can be bypassed, providing a variety of compression sounds.
The Precision K-Stereo Ambience Recovery Plug-In was created by Universal Audio in collaboration with mastering engineer Bob Katz. It extracts ambient cues from source recordings, allowing users to enhance the stereo depth and imaging of mixes without unnatural artifacts.
