There’s 49% Off The U73b & The U78 By Audified

Plugin Boutique are offering 49% off the U73b compressor and the U78 Saturator by Audified for a limited time. Each is now only £59.56 / $71.50 (usually £118.25 / $141.95). The offers end August 7th.

U73b Compressor

Faithful and unique emulation of an old German broadcast compressor/limiter unit U73b. The second generation of a famous plugin.

The device was often used for mastering between 1960 and 1980. It is an all-tube vary-mu compressor/limiter with an adjustable release time option. Audified kept the circuit exactly as it was originally designed and only added input and output gain (before and right after the compressor circuit) to help with the proper adjustment of the compression. The plugin effect has been also supplemented with a VU meter and selectable side-chaining. U73b is great for mastering, mixing drums, bass, guitar, vocals and voiceovers.

Features include:

  • External Sidechain Mode
  • Auto Output Parameter
  • Built-in IDEs with Effective Code
  • Default Calibration Parameters
  • Oversampling
  • Retina Support
  • Software can be used on 2 computers per ID simultaneously (User gets 2 licenses)

The compressor’s controls are very easy, but the effect of this unique device is audible at the same moment you turn it on.

Compressor/Limiter switch – is the upper U73b knob and it switches between Compressor mode (Kompr), Bypass (Durchschalt) and Limiter mode (Begr). The compressor mode has a lower threshold setting and a very gentle increasing ratio, in opposite, the limiter mode provides a higher threshold setting with a higher ratio but still with a smooth knee.

U78 Saturator

Valve Saturating Plugin Based on the Circuitry of the Famous U73b Compressor

Almost anything is possible in the digital world. With the right skills and technology, you can create absolutely anything you like… like the U78 Saturator. So, Audified took the circuitry of the legendary U73b compressor and played around a bit to come up with some seriously satisfying saturation!

To start with, Audified removed their award-winning U73b Compressor plugin’s compression function. Filters were added, together with the tone control, and, finally, a strong gain control completed the U78 Saturator. Audified kept the heart and soul of the machine to deliver the beautifully musical tube sound. The result is a saturator that sounds like no other. The U78 Saturator is even better than the real thing, being blessed with the things that dreams are musically made of. 

Features include:

  • Gain – Adjusts the input gain of the saturation circuit. (The higher the settings, the richer the sound that can be achieved) 
  • HiPass – Sets the cutoff frequency of the high-pass filter, which comes before the saturation circuit in the signal path. (The range is from 30 Hz to 800 Hz – turn the knob to a minimum to turn off the HiPass filter) 
  • LowPass – Sets the cutoff frequency of the lowpass filter, which comes before the saturation circuit in the signal path. (The range is from 1 kHz to 8 kHz – turn the knob to the maximum to turn off the LowPass filter) 
  • Tone – Controls the U78 Saturator’s unique tone filter. (Lower settings produce darker sounds with more low-frequency content; conversely, higher settings result in brighter, sparkly sounds) 
  • Mix – Controls the dry and wet signal ratio. (The dry signal is delayed to match the wet signal path latency to prevent phasing issues)

The plug-in is mainly intended to be used on bass, drums and vocals, but creativity knows no boundaries. The presets for the device are prepared by experienced producers such as Baby Brown (represented in the preset list with BB initials) or Boris Carloff (BC).

Both plugins are available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX) and require an iLok account.
