UAD-1e on the way...any advice on choices?

I am looking to add a good combination of UAD-1 plugs to master both live classical recordings and studio recorded Pop/Rock/whatever. The ones that ship with the UAD are going to be great but still being somewhat new to all this I would love some advice on which plugs to get with my vouchers for mastering.
I do realize mastering is an artform in itself and you use whatever works for each project, and I have done lots of reading and experimenting, but I really just need advice on my voucher choice?
-Thanks

Allan,
If mastering is what you intend to do with the UAD plug-ins, the obvious choice would be their... mastering plug-ins.
Without a doubt, the 3 "must haves" would be UAD's Multiband Compressor, Precision Limiter, and Precision EQ.
With those three, you can accomplish most everything.
If you need to cut corners, IMO, you could not get the Precision EQ, and instead use Logic's Phase EQ.
For mixing, the undeniable choices are the 1176, LA2A, and Fairchild compressors.
Their Roland stuff is simply amazing also. RE-201 Space Delay (tape Delay), Dimension D chorus and CE-1 Chorus/vibrato. But that depends on your personal needs for those types of effects.
And then there's the 140 plate Reverb. If you use Reverb in any of your mixes, this is a good one to have. It's by far the "most lush" sounding plate plug-in I have ever heard. But the kind of stuff you mix should be a consideration in buying this. I highly recommend it though.
So, I've mentioned more plug-ins than your voucher will cover, for sure. Do start with the mastering ones though, if that's going to be your primary use.

    restore your app from the trash and then properly uninstall.

  • My apple tv is not streaming from my itunes since my last update but streams movie previews so i know it is communicating to the internet any advice. P.S. i have already unplugged everythign and reset everything already so i need better advice.

    It steams movie previews so i know it is connected to the internet and it sees my movies but when i click on them to play they take unusually long and then if they start they just dont load. I have had this unit for a year and have not had any problems till now. The last update changed the look and then it wont stream it is very frustrating. any advice will be appreciated. I have already unplugged everything and reset everything and still nothing.

    Just look through the list of posts - you will see many people asking the same question.  My father and i (different households) have the same issue.  Apple techs want to blame it on interference or firewalls, BUT everything was working before the update so that is just a blow off answer.  Apple needs to fix this.

  • I am trying to connect my new ipad to my BT Home Hub but keep getting the message unable to join the network, Any advice?

    I am trying to connect my new ipad to my BT Home Hub but keep getting a message saying that I am unable to join the Home Hub network.  Any advice?

    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are droping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

  • I am hoping to buy a 3G iphone at the ernd of the week any advice

    Hi,
    Hopefully I will be able to get hold of 16Gb 3G iphone at the end of the week as I was working all last week and weekend.
    I eventually upgraded to 2.0 firmware and really like it on on my 2 iphones so upgrading the handset would be the next step.
    Does anyone who has had a 2G iphone and upgraded to 3G model have any advice on this.

    From iMovie's menu, click on Edit > Select > Photos. All photos in the timeline will now be highlighted with a yellow border. Double-click on one of the photos to open the Inspector. In the Inspector change the duration to your desired time of 5 seconds. Now all the photos will have a duration of 5 seconds.

  • HT4858 My iCloud stopped sharing photos with my other devices. Im in wifi and settings are the same. any advice?

    Why would my iphone 5 stop sharing with my ipad 2 on the cloud with my photos. they havent shared in 3 days any photos

    You may have to save any photos that are not in your camera roll to your camera roll on both devices, then turn photo stream off, and (after a few seconds) back on to get things working again.  (If you don't save them to your camera roll, you will lose photos older than 30 days as older photo stream photos are no longer in iCloud.)

  • I have a neslab chiller and want to read the temperature by sending ASCII characters and graph the results, any advice?

    I am having difficulty having the chiller recognize (RT[CR]) which is the signal recognized by the chiller to read the temperature. The signal that is returned is (xxx.xx[CR]) which is the temperature. I am attempting to be able to read the temperature and graph this vs time and possibly be able to change the setpoint as well from the UIR.

    I agree with Randy that Hyperterminal is a good starting point to test cabling and communication.
    In your program, be careful to serial port initialization (how to set baud rate, parity, data bits and stop bits depends on the language used) and to termination character ([CR] means Carriage return: if you are usng CVI it DOESN'T add CR to the message unless you esplicitly put it in).
    Another interesting point is the time the instrument takes to respond to the message: it can vary from message to message and is usually described in the instrument's documentation. If you test for a shorter time, you catch a false 'no response'. You could make a while loop and test in it the number of bytes received, then decide whether to end the loop for timeout or answer recei

  • Exporting WITHOUT the Letterboxing - any advice please?

    I'm shooting on a Sony Z1 using 'Squeeze' mode but when I export to a QuickTime from FCP I still have the letterboxing within picture.
    Is there anyway I can avoid the letterboxing to produce and export a full video frame for web broadcast without cropping the picture?
    Thanks
    Simone

    Yes, you can scale your HDV or DV to a smaller size using advanced setting in Compressor. Not sure why you are working with a down convert in Squeeze. I would work in the best quality (HDV) for as long as I could (keeping in mind the limits of HDV Long GOP) and then export to Compressor using a uncompressed codec and using a custom setting to the size a web file you want. Test small files and keep plenty of notes for each then burn to DVD if this is where you are going and see what works for you.
    Good Luck

  • When streaming a movie from an imac to apple tv, is there a way of putting the imac display off? I find it a waste having the screen on in another room. Any advice?

    No problem.
    This is a user forum so you are not addressing Apple. There's nothing to fix, that's how home-sharing works. There would be no way for the ATV to recognize your library and display content if the computer is in sleep mode.
    You can always airplay from an IOS device or use icloud if you don't wish to keep the computer on.

    You used the data.  Verizon can not see what it was sued for.  However your phone can see whats apps used the data.  go to settings-data usage- there will be a place that says data usage cycle.  line the dates up with your cycle.  then there will be a bar graph below that   extend bother white bars one all the way to the left and one all the way to the right.  after those are extended below that will be a list of apps,  there should be one that used over 2 gb and that will show you what app used that data in her purse
