> I'm using a lot of the Universal Audio plug-ins, which are fantastic emulations of original analogue stuff. Now I'm able to use emulations of a lot of the old analogue compressors, like the Fairchild or the 1176, and the EMT 140 plate — many of the things they were using at the time.more
“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
Bit dark & can sound grainy but with care it can be worked in. Not a big fan but I've made it work.
Of all of Universal Audio's reverbs I like this the least.
The GUI is goofy & it leaves a big "character" footprint. That's fine I guess if you want that but just mean it sits on the shelf a lot here. Never made it on a clients mix. I can get what I want easier with other options in most cases.
Zero chance I'd buy it again. Go with Valhalla or something else. Save your cash.
