UA Brings Cambridge EQ to Pro Tools, Issues TDM Update
September 21, 2004
Universal Audio has announced the release of the Cambridge EQ TDM and the v1.3 TDM update for Digidesign TDM Systems. The update can be downloaded free to existing TDM customers at www.uaudio.com, and includes a 14-day, fully functional demo of the Cambridge EQ. The Cambridge EQ for TDM is now available for a MSRP of US$495
Originally developed for the company's UAD-1 DSP card, the Cambridge EQ TDM features:
- Five bands of parametric or shelf EQ
- Low pass and high pass filters with seventeen filter slopes including 2nd-6th order Butterworth and elliptical filters as well as standard cut filters from 6-36db/octave
- Graphical display of EQ curve with "bats" for direct on-screen adjustment
- Analog-type filters use a UA proprietary algorithm, which avoids harshness problems typical to digital EQs design according to the company
- Parametric section controls emulate popular high-end analog consoles
"Although Universal Audio is known for our emulation of classic processors, the Cambridge EQ is the result of our own design rather than a clone. This makes the overwhelming success of the Cambridge EQ even more meaningful," said Mike Barnes, UA's Director of Marketing.
The Cambridge EQ for TDM is now available through the UA Dealer Channel either singly or as part of a bundle with other UA classic TDM plug-ins including the Pultec EQP-1A, 1176LN/SE and Teletronix LA-2A. Cambridge is also available in AU/VST/DX & RTAS plug-in formats for the UAD-1 DSP card. Demo versions are available for download.
