Universal Audio presenterar ny DAW för Apollo-användare – LUNA

LUNA är ett komplett inspelningssystem för dig som äger en Thunderbolt-utrustad Apollo eller Arrow. Skapa och spela in musik digitalt i en analoginspirerad miljö som är formad av Universal Audios 60-åriga erfarenhet av analog inspelning.

Några nyckelfunktioner är mjukvarans djupa integration med hårdvaran – Apollo och Arrow. Detta ger möjlighet att spela in och monitorera genom UAD DSP-processorer utan märkbar fördröjning.

Inbyggd summering från Neve som ger soundet av klassiska Neve 80-Series från sent 60- till tidigt 70-tal.

UAs hyllade rullbands-emulering Oxide, nu som multitrack. Klassiska Studer A800 kommer att kunna köpas separat.

För första gången släpper UA virtuella instrument vilket användare har efterfrågat i många år. Initialt kommer vi få se och höra Moog Minimoog som är utvecklad i samarbete med Moog Music. Ravel Grand Piano, UAs version av Steinway Model B. Shape som är ett multiinstrument med klaviatur, trummor, percussion, gitarr, bas, orkester, syntar etc. Shape kommer medfölja LUNA medan Minimoog och Ravel kommer att kunna köpas separat.

LUNA lanseras våren 2020 och kommer vara gratis för dig som äger en Thunderbolt-utrustad Apollo eller Arrow. LUNA kommer endast fungera till Mac.


Universal Audios pressmeddelande

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • January 16th, 2020 — Universal Audio (UA), a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to introduce LUNA Recording System, a full-featured music creation, recording, and analog-style production system shaped by over 60 years of analog audio exploration.

LUNA transforms UA’s industry-standard Apollo interfaces into the most inspiring and
fully integrated recording systems available. The LUNA Recording System consists of a UA Thunderbolt-equipped audio interface, the LUNA ApplicationLUNA Extensions, andLUNA Instruments.

LUNA will be available as a free download for Apollo and Arrow Thunderbolt audio interface owners (Mac only) in Spring 2020.

Key LUNA Recording System features include its deep Apollo interface integration, built-in Neve® Summing, Multitrack Tape Emulation, and all-new LUNA Instruments — UA’s long-awaited foray into software-based instruments.

Deep Apollo Integration — Fast, Natural Workflow
Unlike traditional DAW software, LUNA Recording System’s tight hardware-software integration allows quickly routing and recording audio through DSP-powered UAD plug-ins with no discernable latency via the new Accelerated Realtime Monitoring feature. Accelerated Realtime Monitoring is poised to be a major revelation for those unaccustomed to working on a $10k+ DSP-assisted recording system; music production will instantly seem more robust, dependable, and intuitive, without latency or monitoring hassles.

Built-In Neve® Summing — Instant Classic Console Sound
LUNA Recording System offers precisely emulated audio summing circuitry from the Neve 80- Series audio mixing consoles designed by Neve Electronics in the 1960s and early 1970s, featuring the harmonically rich sound of the Neve 1272 summing amplifier. Far beyond a “summing plug-in,” Neve Summing is a LUNA Extension built-in to the fabric of LUNA’s mixer — and can instantly transform a clean technical mix into a classic-sounding recording filled with energy and life.

Integrated Multitrack Tape — Warmth and Punch on Demand
LUNA’s audio transport features integrated Multitrack Tape emulation via the included ”Oxide” LUNA Extension — providing sonic qualities commonly described by audio engineers as ”warmth” and ”cohesion” on every desired audio or instrument track. LUNA Recording System users may choose to further explore various magnetic tape sounds with the optional Studer®A800 Tape Recorder Extension (sold separately).

All-New LUNA Instruments — Incredible Realism to Fuel Inspiration
LUNA is further distinguished by all-new software-based LUNA Instruments — bringing Universal Audio’s expertise in electrical and acoustic modeling, sampling, synthesis, and signal processing to virtual instruments for the first time ever. The resulting software instruments are ultra-realistic, responsive, and “alive” with inspiration.

At launch, available LUNA Instruments will include:
Moog® Minimoog — developed in partnership with Moog Music, the Moog Minimoog is an incredibly accurate and inspiring emulation of the archetypal 1971 Moog synthesizer
Ravel grand piano — a breathtaking model of a Steinway Model B grand piano based on UA’s proprietary sampling, physical modeling, and new Ultra-Resonance technology — providing all the sonic nuance of this studio classic
Shape — a complete creative toolkit with vintage keys, drums/percussion, guitar/bass, orchestral content, and realtime synthesis, courtesy of Universal Audio, Spitfire Audio, Orange Tree Samples, Loops de la Creme, and more — included free in LUNA

LUNA will be available as a free download for Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo and Arrow audio interface owners for macOS systems and is shipping in Spring 2020. LUNA is not compatible with Apollo FireWire or Apollo Twin USB.
