Universal Audio 1176 LN Classic Limiting Amplifier
The Universal Audio 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier is a modern reproduction, yet 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 — the first true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry offering superior performance with a signature sound — and set 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.

Universal audio has done a fantastic job of engineering these re-issues. I have used 1176s of different vintages, some black, one silver, and own an 1178. The track comes back very detailed vs the 1178 which adds a little fuzz, sometimes for the better, sometimes not so. While I don't have the other older 1176s to A/B I was immediately impressed with the new 1176s. They work well on all sources. They feel like brand new old friends.
It was a dream come true! I have always wanted this compressor to sit along my LA-2A and now I have accomplished it. Best compressor I have ever worked with and easy to use, it will blow you away!
Nothing else does what this box does. If you need this flavor, get the real thing.
Every professional studio should own one
