Universal Audio announced the release of UAD Software v8.0 for UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware and Apollo audio interfaces.

UAD Software v8.0 also adds Mac OS X Yosemite compatibility and all-new plug-in categories to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform:

Sound Machine Wood Works Plug-In

  • Record your acoustic guitar direct, in real time with microphone quality sound using Apollo Twin, DUO, or QUAD
  • Provides the rich resonance and vibrancy missing from unprocessed acoustic guitar pickups
  • No time-consuming setup; provides consistent premium sound every time you monitor or record acoustic guitar
  • Freedom to re-mic as you mix, changing and adding microphones as needed to fit your production

UA Distortion Essentials Plug-In Bundle

  • Features the legendary Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808 (also sold separately for $129), Raw Distortion™ (based on the vintage early-80s Pro Co Rat), and Bermuda Triangle (based on the early 70s-era Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi) plug-ins*
  • Harnesses Unison™ technology to precisely emulate the circuit interaction, gain range, and clip points of the original stompboxes

Friedman Amplifiers Plug-In Collection by Brainworx

  • Faithful emulation of two modern boutique amps inspired by classic British tube amps, designed by legendary amp guru David Friedman
  • FX Rack features lo-fi delay, noise gate, and filter controls
  • 66 impulse responses for each amp, with multiple speaker cabinets recorded in a state of the art room with stellar gear
