UA releases V76 Preamp and Auto-Tune Realtime Advanced

Universal Audio on Tuesday released two new entries to its arsenal of top-quality audio plug-ins. There are videos on the product pages for each plug-in. First, we have the V76 Preamp:

The venerable V76 Preamplifier is arguably the most coveted standalone mic preamp ever made. Developed in the 1950s by the German Institute of Broadcast Technology (IRT), the V76’s distinctly “hi-fi” tube sound was integral to legendary studios across Europe from the 1950s through present day, including Decca, EMI, and Abbey Road.

I can’t wait to use this as a Unison plug-in with my UA gear.

Next, we have Antares Auto-Tune Realtime Advanced:

Legendary for its vocal enhancing and creative applications, the Antares Auto-Tune effect revolutionized vocal production. From subtly tweaking a singer’s intonation to transforming a vocal into varying degrees of robot-speak, Auto-Tune is a must-have tool for the modern music producer’s toolkit.

A UA exclusive, the Antares Auto-Tune Realtime Advanced plug-in improves the previous UAD version with powerful workflow and sonic enhancements, making it the ultimate ultra-low-latency tuning solution for Apollo and Arrow interfaces — optimized for instant live vocal tracking in the studio or on stage.

I know some people overuse this, but it is a really effective plug-in.
