The Universal Audio LUNA Analog Essentials bundle includes Neve and API summing as well as integrated Studer and Ampex tape emulations, perfectly integrated with Universal Audio’s powerful recording software.
The Neve summing lets you add the unmistakable mojo of the classic Neve 80 series consoles. Developed in close partnership with AMS Neve, the Neve Summing extension recreates the entire summing circuit and its core 1272 bus amplifiers which add the colour, and 3-dimensional sound.
The API Summing Extension has been designed with API to bring the unmistakable mid-forward punch of API consoles. It recreates API’s famous 2520 op-amps and custom-output transformer summing amps that greatly contribute to the attitude and sound of API’s analogue consoles.
