A Deeper Look At UA's History

Even in an industry packed to the brim with ingenious makers, there are few that have had the lasting impact of Universal Audio's M.T. \"Bill\" Putnam Sr. Since finding his place in the studio as an engineer in his early years, Putnam transformed the way many listen, look and think during the recording process. We went on an exclusive tour of Universal Audio's headquarters in Scotts Valley, California. Get an inside look at UA's incredible facilities including manufacturering center, testing area and state-of-the-art studio by watching the video above.

    Few companies in the world of pro audio have garnered the reputation of Universal Audio. Started by legendary audio engineer, producer, and studio designer Bill Putnam Sr., many of the brand’s earliest designs live on today in both analog and digital form.

  • In 1958, Bill Putnam founded Universal Audio Inc. as a means for him to design and manufacture professional tools for use at his own recording facility, the famed United Recording. Among his earliest creations were the legendary tube 610 console, and the 1176. Not long after, Putnam acquired Teletronix, and began selling the beloved LA-2A compressor with the Universal Audio name on it.

    Universal Audio continues to innovate today as the brand has become one of the industry leaders in audio interfaces. Its state-of-the-art Apollo X series features some of the best conversion on the market and Unison-enabled mic pres. When paired with Universal Audio plug-ins, these mic pres can replicate the actual impedance level and gain staging response of the classic gear being emulated.

  • It would be impossible to mention Universal Audio without talking about the brand’s groundbreaking plug-ins. From emulations of its 610, 1176, and LA-2A, to holy grail items like the Fairchild 670 and Helios Type 69, Universal Audio breathes life into these plug-ins that make it feel like you’re using the real thing. Open up the UAD library, and you’ll see an expansive catalog of revered gear flawlessly recreated for in the box use.

    With both classic hardware and software tools in its lineup, it’s no mystery as to why Universal Audio ranks among the best pro audio companies in the world. The brand has been at the top of the game for over six decades and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
