“The Universal Audio plug-ins are my bread and butter,” he says. “I use the UAD EMT 140 [Classic Plate Reverb], the Lexicon  Digital Reverb, and the Roland [RE-201] Space Echo. If drums or bass sound boring, UAD’s Fairchild 670 Compressor beefs stuff up and gives them character. Or the [Teletronix] LA2A plug-in on bass. Synths go straight to Pro Tools. Guitars and piano go to outboard effects like the hardware Space Echo, which I love for its unpredictability. I used a Manley Massive Passive EQ a lot too. The TubeTech CL-1B was the main vocal compressor. And I have a set of Lucas Limiting Amplifiers into a pair of Amtek Pultec PEQ-1A clones. That is a dummy-proof signal path. It’s hard to botch that.”more
"Also, the Fairchild Tube Limiter Plug-In Collection is great because it is unique; none of the other compressors sound like it. On the Killers Day and Age, that was often a drum compressor, for either individual sounds or the entire kit. It suits Ronnie’s [the Killers’ drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr.] sound well. His kit is really more like one single sound source than a collection of multi-micing drums."more
"Heritage" plugins are not a place I generally get excited about. I kinda wanna see more of "what can we do now?" vs "how can we make "x" emulation?!" However, I do have to tip my hat to those who give me 80% at 5% of the price of the hardware.
I'm most importantly trying to not qualify "heritage" plugins by how closely they mirror their hardware counterparts. It's all- you like the sound? Sweet. Got a huge library of great sound design. My last client had a beat he'd made on his I phone-no sweat! You like it? Awesome, let's track & keep just lookin for what works & not the name badge on a mic, compressor, plugin, etc.
This offers a ton for the price point. Was $100 when I got it.
