The UAD plugins don’t need much in the way of introduction, suffice to say that they’re responsible for plenty of mixes that you’ve probably got on your mp3 player.
The Universal Audio Twin-Finity preamps also don’t need much in the way of introduction, suffice to say that the ability to blend between solid-state and tube amp circuits gives you the flexibility for any session.
Those two things considered, this is quite a special offer.
From 1st July to the 30th September, when you buy a UA 4-710d preamp, you can take home a UAD2 Quad – PCIe, Thunderbolt or Firewire – for FREE!
The Universal Audio 4-710d preamp
The UA 4-710d preamp is a great unit to have in your studio. The 4-710d gives you four channels of mic pre-amplification on board, but that’s just the start of it; there’s plenty more where that came from…
We’ve already mentioned the tube/solid-state preamp circuits, and how the blend control lets you go from 100% of one to 100% off the other with phase-aligned goodness, but we’ve not yet mentioned the compression…
Each channel offers 1176-inspired dynamics via the ease of a slow/fast/off switch and the balancing of those gain and level controls. Just flick the metering switch to show the gain reduction – or just use your ears! – and dial in the compression to taste. Of course, the 4-710d also offers line inputs, so you can always record dry and compress later.
As you’d expect, the Universal Audio 4-710d gives you the usual complement of mic preamp features you’d expect: phantom power, a 15 dB pad, a polarity invert switch and a high-pass filter. You also get four 2.2 MOhm JFET instrument inputs and balanced sends and returns.
But wait! We’re still not done.
Here’s the even more something special. The UA 4-710d is also an 8 channel A/D converter with ADAT and AES/EBU outputs. Sample rates of up to 192 kHz are supported and word clock I/O is also onboard.
So, just to recap, you get 4 flexible mic preamps, 4 instrument preamps, 4 1176-inspired compressors and 8 channels of AD for a stupidly competitive price.
Oh, and you get a UAD2 Quad for free.

And you don’t really have to do much. Just take your 4-710d home, fill out the online redemption form, choose your UAD2 Quad format – PCIe, Thunderbolt or Firewire – and wait for it to arrive.
Oh, and did we mention that the UAD2 Quad normally retails for £825?!
The combination of analogue and digital in this promotion really is quite impressive, there’s a reason Universal Audio are calling it the ‘complete studio upgrade’.
The small print!
