The definitive collection of the world’s most famous compressors.

The original Universal Audio 1176 was designed by UA founder M.T. “Bill” Putnam, and represented a major breakthrough in limiter technology. The first compressor featuring solid‑state circuitry and ultra-fast 20 microsecond FET gain reduction, the 1176 is an easy‑to‑use “desert island” compressor that has lent its character and punch to some of the greatest recordings in history.

Upon its release in 2001, UA’s first 1176 plug‑in single‑handedly launched our UAD platform. Extensive end‑to‑end circuit modeling in 2013 captured even more sonic nuance. Now with updated graphics and additional controls, the 1176 Classic Limiter Collection continues its legacy of analog modeling excellence.

Featuring the 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection.

A Triple Threat

A Triple Threat

The 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection provides three distinct 1176 revisions, representing over 40 years of design iterations to the original 1176. The Rev A “Bluestripe” represents the original Putnam FET limiter design, complete with its higher distortion and unique FET gain amplifier characteristics. The Rev E “Blackface” covers the early '70s Brad Plunkett “LN” (Low Noise) era, with variations including a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification, and a change to the program dependence. The 1176AE provides UA’s rare 1176 40th Anniversary Edition, complete with exclusive mods — including its lower 2:1 compression ratio.

Classic Compression, Quickly

Classic Compression, Quickly

Using an 1176 is a study in simplicity. Input simultaneously sets compression threshold and the level of the signal entering the 1176; Output sets the final signal level. Attack sets the time it takes the 1176 to respond to incoming signal, while Release sets the time it takes the 1176 to return to its initial level. The VU meter displays the amount of gain reduction (GR) or output level (+4/+8).

Ratio Buttons for Iconic Color

Ratio Buttons for Iconic Color

The four Ratio buttons determine the degree of gain reduction — lower ratios for compression, higher ratios for limiting. Disengaging all Ratio buttons disables compression, while continuing to pass signal through the 1176 circuitry, adding unmistakable color. At the request of users, “Multi-Button” combinations possible with the hardware are now attainable in the plug-in — including the famous “All Button” sound.

Added Features for Modern Workflows

Added Features for Modern Workflows

Exclusive plug‑in only features lend modern workflows to this classic processor collection. Get quick parallel processing on bass and kick drums with Dry/Wet mix controls, or use the custom Sidechain Filter to tame low‑frequency pumping. Plus, enhanced graphics with improved VU metering bring iconic FET compression into a new age.

I knew I wanted it 10 seconds into the trial.

I knew UAD's reputation for the hardware accelerated plugins but was a bit skeptical about them being so much better than the competition. When they went native I installed the demo and barely 10 seconds into the trial I had no doubts. These are really special.

Very Disappointed in UAD customer service!

Paid for the 1176, however, it was not until I had downloaded it to my computer and I was all set to launch, when only then did it say that the 1176 was incompatible with my current iOS.
It would have been nice if UAD had noted system requirements prior to my purchase.
And forget about getting them on the phone. Absolutely no help there whatsoever.....

Love Love Love It

Used the real thing for 30+ Years. Always had at least 4 of them in my effects rack. Never used meters to tune them, always just relied on my ears. Still have 2 of them that are pretty well matched. But they both have their own distinctive sound. This plug-in doesn’t have that. It always sounds the same. I turn the same knobs the same way and still use my ears. I took good care of them and hope to be able to use them for a few more years…

Die besten 1176 Plugins!

Ich habe in den letzten Jahren unzählige 1176 Plugins unterschiedlicher Anbieter ausprobiert und mit einigen auch lange gearbeitet. Seit ich die UAD-Versionen zum ersten Mal getestet habe, gibt es für mich keine anderen mehr. Exzellent !

UAD 1176 Classics

The UAD 1176 Comps are just what I needed.After fully learning how to use an 1176 Comp Plugin or Hardware,it now was time for me to get the Bundle I ve been wanting for a long time.UAD giving us Studio people the native versions just made that possible for me.I just resently got the LA2A Bundle.

Another classic..

A classic. I have many plugins, I have compressor. LA2A and 1176 are a must. Definitely these two are different. Especially the UAD versions.
