Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ

The new plugin is based on the Abbey Road desk used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd.

Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ and Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 plugins announced.

Universal Audio has released its new UAD Software v8.6, featuring two exclusive plugins for UAD hardware and Apollo interfaces.

Alongside the new UAD Fender ’55 Tweed Deluxe plugin are the Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ and Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2.

Developed for the UAD Powered Plugins platform by Softube, the Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ plug-in is an exacting emulation of this boutique, inductor-based EQ. Based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk from Abbey Road Studios, the same one used to record Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles' Abbey Road, Chandler Limited’s Curve Bender Mastering EQ is designed to take the warm sonics of the vintage EMI unit and expand it into a powerful mastering EQ.

Endorsed by Chandler Limited founder Wade Goeke, Softube emulated the Chandler Limited’s Curve Bender circuits end-to-end, including its filter inductors, germanium transistors, transformers, and circuit nonlinearities. This allows the Curve Bender plug-in to retain the hardware’s rich harmonics and vintage tone.

Chandler Limited Curve Bender Mastering EQ Plugin key features:

•Exacting emulation of a modern classic EQ for mixing and mastering, fully authenticated by Chandler Limited

• Based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd

• Models entire Chandler Limited Curve Bender electronic path, including transformers and circuit nonlinearities

• Plugin-only features include Mid/Side functionality and channel linking

Meanwhile, the Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 plug-in transparently increases the volume, density, and presence of your tracks without losing transients or dynamics. Featuring the latest generation of Oxford Limiter's inter-sample peak (ISP) detection — introduced for the first time on the UAD platform — this plug-in is a suitable tool for engineers looking for an uncoloured, accurate limiter as a ‘final stage’ for their masters.

Sonnox Oxford Limiter v2 Plug-In key features:

• Professional mastering-grade peak limiting with attack, release and variable soft-knee

• Enhance section to increase perceived loudness without gain pumping effects

• Auto Comp fixes reconstruction errors without losing overall loudness, while conforming to the industry's true peak measurement standard (ITU-R BS. 1770-4)

• Comprehensive high-quality dither and noise shaping options
