Legendary Tone Shaping at Your Desk

The Volt 276 Studio Pack features two classic effects from Universal Audio's storied past. The 76 Compressor is based on UA's 1176 solid-state compressor from 1967. Use it to drive instrumental tracks or put vocals front and center. The Volt 276 also captures the warm sound of a vintage UA 610 tube preamp heard on albums by Neil Young, Coldplay, Ray Charles and others. These powerful tools are only available from Universal Audio.
