UAD 7.5 Software features 610 Tube Preamp & EQ plus BAX EQ Plug-in.

UA sent me an email announcing the release of their UAD Software 7.5 which features the 610 Tube Preamp and EQ plus the Dangerous BAX EQ developed in collaboration with Brainworx. It includes full 64 bit AAX and Mavericks support and they also updated their API Vision Channel Strip to use their innovative Unison Technology.

Here's the email:

Lots of great news to share today! 

With the release of UAD v7.5, we bring you the revered 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection and the Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-In Collection for the UAD and Apollo platforms.

New! UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection — With UA’s new groundbreaking Unison technology, this new plug-in collection delivers the first genuine representation of the UA 610 preamp’s revered tube character —

  • Includes the 610-A and 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-ins, each with their own sonic attributes and feature sets
  • Models 610-A and 610-B’s entire electronic path — including tube amplifiers and transformers, complete with circuit nonlinearities and dependencies
  • Physical analog input impedance switching and front panel control of gain staging and other preamp parameters via Unison technology for Apollo Twin and Apollo DUO/QUAD owners

Unison Technology Overview -

  • An exclusive analog/digital integration system already built into every Apollo mic preamp
  • Enables Apollo mic preamps to sound and behave like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps — including their all-important impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors
  • Continuous, realtime, bi-directional control and interplay between Apollo’s physical hardware and UAD software preamp model

Additionally with UAD v7.5, the UAD API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In is now also Unison-enabled allowing Apollo users to capture the authentic circuit behaviors of the Vision’s timeless 212L preamp.

New! Dangerous BAX EQ Plug-in Collection — Developed by Brainworx, this premium “finishing EQ” offers world-class sonics, unique frequency curves and features  —

  • Includes the Dangerous BAX EQ Mix and the Dangerous BAX EQ Master plug-ins
  • Low Frequency cut filters dial-out unwanted subsonic frequencies, cleaning up low-end rumble and increasing headroom
  • New Mid/Side function on stereo EQ Master version — not found on the original hardware

New! Platform Updates  — Full AAX 64 Support for Macs, OS X 10.9 Mavericks Compatibility, and Mac Pro Firmware Updates —

Also included in this release,  UA is pleased to announce full compatibility with Apple’s latest operating system, as well as full AAX 64 support for Mac users, with AAX 64 support coming for Windows 7 users this spring.

  • Important note for Mac Pro users: UAD v7.5 includes firmware for Apollo DUO/QUAD, Apollo 16, and UAD-2 OCTO that enables these devices to be recognized by the new Mac Pro (Late 2013) when connected via Thunderbolt. This firmware has undergone preliminary testing and no issues were exposed, however it is not yet fully tested.
