NAMM 2020 | LUNA Recording System – New from Universal Audio
NAMM 2020 | After 7 years’ R&D, Universal Audio has launched LUNA, a premium production and recording system available for all UA Thunderbolt interface users.
LUNA is here, and it promises to revolutionize the way Universal Audio’s users make music. As a complete software recording solution, LUNA updates all UA Thunderbolt interfaces and provides a huge range of new functionality.
Headline features include Multitrack Tape Emulation, built-in Neve Summing, Accelerated Realtime Monitoring, plus original LUNA Instruments from UA, MOOG, and Spitfire Audio.
It’s one small step for Universal Audio, one giant leap for musician-kind. In fact, we should re-word that. It’s one huge step forward for UA. With LUNA, analog workflow just went stellar.
Launching this spring, LUNA will be a free upgrade for all current Universal Audio Thunderbolt Interface owners on Mac. And if you’re not on UA currently, here’s your reason to take that next step: fully integrated recording for all UA Thunderbolt interfaces, with near-zero latency monitoring and bundled software plugins!
The next stage of Universal Audio
LUNA is the next evolutionary step in Universal Audio’s ecosystem. As a free upgrade, it will automatically improve the workflow of all UA Thunderbolt interfaces.
Wave goodbye to transmission lag completely. LUNA is robust, dependable, and intuitive. Included will be Neve Summing, modelled faithfully on the 1960s Neve 80-Series mixer console – with the sublime sound of the Neve 1272 Summing Amplifier.
Also included is Oxide: UA’s Multitrack Tape Emulation extension with the magnetic tape sound that brought cohesion to so many classic records. Oxide Tape is automatically added to every track in LUNA, so you can immediately heat up your takes with lush analog warmth.
LUNA’s free software instruments
For creators, UA has also included LUNA Instruments. User will have access to the Moog Minimoog; the Ravel Grand (a breathtaking physically-modeled Steinway grand piano); and Shape – a creative toolkit with vintage instruments, orchestral content, and samples courtesy of Spitfire Audio, Orange Tree Samples, and Loops de la Crème.
This is just the beginning – get your Universal Audio Thunderbolt Interface now and prepare for touchdown: it’s recording history in the making.
