UAD v7.1 with Pultec Passive Eq Collection, Millennia NSEQ-2 Parametric Eq and Flex routing for Apollo Interfaces

Universal audio has announced their v7.1 software for the the UAD-2 and Apollo platforms that features a Pultec Passive Eq Collection, Millennia NSEQ-2 Parametric Eq  ($299 each) and also new Flex Routing for the Apollo interfaces. I've used the hardware versions of both eqs (and UA's original plugin emulations of the Pultecs) on many mixes.
If the new Pultecs are anything like the 1176 Collection I'm quite sure they sound fantastic. I can't wait to try the new plugins on my next project.

"New! UAD Plug-ins included in UAD v7.1:

Pultec Passive EQ Collection - Legendary EQP-1A, MEQ-5, and HLF-3C EQs Immaculately Modeled for the UAD-2 DSP Accelerators and Apollo Audio Interfaces
