Universal Audio Releases Cambridge EQ For Digidesign TDMAlso ships V1.3 TDM update (September 21, 2004)
Universal Audio, a manufacturer of high-quality vintage audio hardware and DSP software plug-ins for digital audio workstations, today announced the release of the Cambridge EQ 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
"The Cambridge EQ was originally developed for our UAD-1 DSP card and received rave reviews from our customers. We took great care porting Cambridge to the Digidesign TDM platform in order to maintain its acclaimed audio processing integrity and signature sonic quality," said Joe Bryan, VP of Engineering for Universal Audio. "After extensive development and studio testing, we think Digi users will be overjoyed with the sound of Cambridge TDM."
Cambridge TDM Key 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
* 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. "Now that Cambridge is available for the Digidesign TDM platform, Mix, HD and Accel customers have another real alternative for premium sounding EQ, and we invite them to download the free demo of Cambridge and see what all the fuss is about."
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. Further details available from authorized UA dealers worldwide or from www.uaudio.com.
