Universal Audio recently announced the Thermionic Culture Vulture Plug-In for their UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

The British-made Thermionic Culture Vulture has long been admired for creating studio-grade, high-gain valve distortion. After a multi-year engineering effort from Universal Audio, producers and engineers can now track and mix with the only authentic circuit emulation of this one-of-a-kind valve distortion tool.

The Thermionic Culture Vulture plug-in models the original hardware’s three distinct all-valve circuit topologies and features Universal Audio’s first ever pentode tube circuit model. The Culture Vulture plug-in also offers two features not found on the original hardware — a Dry/Wet Parallel Mix control and a Link function for a perfectly matched stereo image to maximize workflow and preserve balances.

In addition, the all-new Thermionic Culture Vulture plug-in features presets from famous Culture Vulture users.

Thermionic Culture Vulture Plug-In Key Features:

  • The world’s only authentic emulation of the legendary high gain, dual-stage valve distortion unit
  • Can subtly alter or completely transform a single track or an entire mix with valve coloration
  • Dial in rich harmonic content with three diverse valve topologies — including UA’s first ever pentode tube emulation
  • Includes parallel Dry/Wet processing and Link controls not found on the original hardware

Pricing and Availability. Available for purchase from UA’s Online Store for $299, the new Thermionic Culture Vulture Plug-in is part of the new UAD Software v7.8. (Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Audio Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide).
