Leveraging advanced techniques our researchers were able to create their own innovative physical model, delivering unparalleled accuracy and faithful representation of these iconic compressors and the T4 optical cells within.  Opal includes models of seven units, borrowed from studios around the world, each offering a unique dynamic profile. In addition, users will find a slew of both handy and modern features including external sidechain, variable responsiveness, frequency response correction, tube drive, and more.

With The Effect Bundle, leverage advanced DSP, creative features, and the incredible sound quality of UVI effects to take your productions to the next level.  From the limitless potential of Shade, our forward-thinking multi-band EQ, filter, and dynamic mix tool, to the ethereal resonances of Plate, our physically-modeled electro-mechanical reverb; from Relayer, our radical 32-tap precision creative delay, to Opal, our next-gen optical compressor with deep modeling, 7 selectable algorithms, and more.
