Read on for a few of the best deals Selector found online from across the internet.

Universal Audio UAD Essentials Edition

Apple/PC, VST3, AAU, AAX

$49 (originally $299) until December 1st

The UAD Essentials Edition boasts 11 plugins, mostly faithful recreations of Universal Audio‘s flagship analogue hardware into plugins.


Teletronix & Pultec

The Teletronix LA-2A offers three different versions based on various histories of the compressor – LA-2A Silver, Gray, and the LA-2. The three models offer distinct variations in time constants, compression knee, headroom, distortion and more.

The Pultec Passive EQ Collection are a collection of three Universal Audio vintage tube equalizers. The EQP-1A crafts bass and low end, the midrange MEQ-5 work best with vocals, and the HLF-3C adds effects to audio as well as correcting issues in higher audio frequencies.



UA’s POLYmax synth plugin is also part of the package, a plugin emulating two analogue circuit systems found in many iconic synthesizers: the Solid State Music (SSM) and Curtis Electronic Music (CEM) chips. Along with this emulation, the POLYmax also features Universal Audio’s classic effects, like the “Hall B” reverb, flangers, tape delay, and more.

Other plugins in the package include the Oxide Tape Recorder, Roland RE-201 delay emulator Galaxy Tape Echo, and the Pure Plate Reverb.

UAD Native, UAD and UADx Plugins

Universal Audio’s UAD Essentials Edition runs on Mac and PC, with plugins listing in DAWs as “Native UAD” (UADx), meaning no additional hardware such as the Apollo/UAD-2 is needed for the software to work.

In turn, a faster, accelerated version of the plugin package is available for hardware owners of the Apollo and UAD-2 series audio interfaces. These plugins are offered in VST2, AU, and AAX formats and are listed in DAW as “UAD” plugins. As of recently, UAD v11 plugins now carry support for VST3.

Purchasing the bundle gains access keys to both standalone and accelerated hardware versions.
