La opinión de sw80 (content in English)"Vintage"

Universal Audio 2-1176
The Universal Audio 2-1176 is a vintage amplifier with twin limiting in stereo or you can use it in dual mono. It is very expensive as it should be, not because it is vintage but because it is great. Or studio at the University has this amplifier in it and I have been using it for years. In the music world today everything has went digital which is good, but you can never get the sound you will get with a vintage unit like this is. It can be racked and will take up 2 rack spaces on your rig. It has 2 XLR inputs and 2 XLR outputs with a frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. There are Release, Input, Output, Attack and Ration controls on the face of the 2-1176.

UTILIZATION

This compression on this amplifier is flat out amazing, you will get such a better and warmer tone when using it that you could any digital unit that is on the market today. I highly recommend getting your hands on one of these if you can afford and you will see why it is so expensive.

SOUND QUALITY

I have found so many different uses for the Universal Audio 2-1176, one of my favorite uses is to run my entire mix through it. Most engineers won’t recommend doing that but I can not help it because the sound that it gives is just so warm and full of life. I have used a tone of different digital mixers that claim they can replicate vintage warmth and none of them can, not even a software plug in can do it. You will not know what you are missing until you get the chance to really use a vintage unit like this one.

OVERALL OPINION

This 2 channel amp will give you the exact sound of the original 1176 right out of the box. It is worth every dime that it cost.

Universal Audio 2-1176
The Universal Audio 2-1176 is a dual channel compressor, that although looks a bit different from the original 1176s, is the same in make up and sound. It is an all analog unit that has XLR inputs and outputs and will take up two rack space units in your rack.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Universal Audio 2-1176 is very easy to follow, as it has the basic parameters you would expect from a compressor. Each channel has knobs for input level, output level, attack, release, and ratio, as well as a switchable knob to control what you are viewing on the meter. There are then switches in the middle of the two channels to each link the channels or use them separately, and then there is also a bypass switch. I don't have the manual for the Universal Audio 2-1176, but if you have any experience with outboard compressors, you won't need it.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of Universal Audio 2-1176 is everything you would expect from the 1176. The original 1176 is known as one of the best compressors ever made, and having two of them in one unit is really a special thing. Getting great sounds on a variety of instruments is easy, and this really excels all across the board, ranging from vocals to drums to guitars. The Universal Audio 2-1176 will not disappoint those looking for this classic unit.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Universal Audio 2-1176 for about a year or two and it has never let me down since I started using it. It has a full bodied sound that makes it great for all sorts of applications, and is extremely easy to use. Universal Audio is a leader in the world of outboard gear, and I really trust their gear all across the board. While this isn't exactly a cheap model, it has top notch tone and those looking for that know that it doesn't come cheap. Highly recommended for all interested in getting two classic compressors in one unit.
