6 remarkable mics from UAD for great recordings.
Universal Audio has announced its move into the microphone market, with six new impressive models.
UA's new mic family includes extraordinarily modeled versions of classic Neumann U67, U87, and the legendary Telefunken's 251. The Bock 187, UA Bock 167, and UA Bock 251 are based on the Neumann U78, Neumann U67, and Telefunken ELA M 251, the first being a solid-state mic and the latter two-valve.
UA also released their own version of the Sphere plug-in that runs on their own DSP system, allowing you to hear the advanced microphone modeling in real-time when using their Console mixer or LUNA DAW.
These three mics were all designed by microphone luminary David Bock, and though they are derived from existing microphones, UA tells us that their circuitry has been revised, resulting in improved technical specifications.
