UA's Ocean Way Studios Dynamic Room Modeling Plug-In

Universal Audio has released the Ocean Way Studios Plugin which emulates rooms/spaces.

"Developed by Universal Audio and Allen Sides, the Ocean Way Studios plug-in rewrites the book on what’s possible with acoustic space emulation. By combining elements of room, microphone, and source modeling, Ocean Way Studios moves far beyond standard impulse response players and reverbs — giving you an authentic replication of one of the world’s most famous recording studios."

The Ocean Way Studios Plugin is available with the the new v7 Software which also includes the SPL TwinTube, Sony Oxford Inflator and newly enhanced Apollo Interface software features.
I've used the TwinTube and Inflator plugins and it's great to see them available on the UAD-2
