Old school meets new school? Not quite. Carefully trained staff hand-wire and test each unit until it meets Universal Audio’s uncompromising standards, making 1176LN true to the original.
A worthy addition to any studio, every effort was made to remain faithful to UA founder Bill Putnam Sr.’s visionary design and intentions. The original UA 1176LN was a major breakthrough in limiter technology, being the first true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry offering superior performance with a signature sound, setting the standard for all limiters to follow.
The ultra-fast attack time and trademark sound have lured legendary artists and studio moguls alike to the 1176LN – Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Joe Chiccarelli, Vance Powell, and Mike Elizondo are just a few names on a list that’s continued to grow, for nearly 50 years.
