With roots stretching back to the 1950s, Universal Audio is unusual in that it is both equally respected for its heritage analogue equipment and cutting edge digital technology. Having traditionally focused on pro audio gear, the plug-in side of the company has been veering deeper into the electric guitar arena with acclaimed emulations of classic and modern amplifiers, cabinets and speakers. These digital models are packaged with sophisticated microphone models that allow users to experience how iconic amps sound with industry standard dynamic, ribbon and condenser mics.

Described as an ‘Amp Top Box’, the Universal Audio OX combines much of UA’s guitar-related modelling DSP with a reactive attenuator. It’s housed in a substantial metal case with a front edge of solid maple, an amp style jewel light and five control knobs that are colour coded to correspond with the digital and analogue functions.

About MusicTech

He’s the man who revolutionised modern film scores with a creative approach to music-making, sonic experimentation and sound utilisation that helps some of the biggest directors to tell their stories. This month we’re overwhelmingly honoured to speak to one of the greatest composers on the planet: Hans Zimmer. In our ten-page interview we talk to Hans about his recent work with Spitfire Audio – co-creating a remarkable assortment of production and studio tools – as well as his incredible career in soundtracking. Elsewhere this issue, Dave Gale takes us through the legacy of the vocoder, we report on this year’s Superbooth show in Berlin and speak to its progenitor Andreas Schneider about his views on modular synthesis and its integral place in the music technology world. We’ve also got our usual tutorials, tips and reviews. Enjoy the issue!
