In a surprising announcement the all-new line of premium stompboxes from Universal Audio include Golden Reverberator, Starlight Echo Station, and Astra Modulation Machine.

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • January 27, 2021
Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to introduce UAFX, the company’s first line of effects pedals, featuring sonically authentic emulations of classic reverb, delay, and modulation circuits.

The results of an exhaustive multi-year R&D effort, UAFX Golden Reverberator, Starlight Echo Station, and Astra Modulation Machine bring powerful dual-processor architecture to the effects pedal market, delivering three distinct vintage sounds per pedal, with impeccable UA analog design and build quality.

Hallmark UAFX features include intuitive Preset/Live modes, analog dry-through, stereo/dual mono operation, true bypass* with silent switching, additional downloadable effects from the acclaimed UAD algorithm team, and more.

UAFX pedals will be available in Spring 2021 with an estimated street price of $399 each.

Golden Reverberator: Classic Reverbs, Expertly Captured

UAFX Golden Reverberator

From the dense sound of 1950’s studio plates, to tube-driven spring reverb of classic 1960's guitar amps, and endless algorithmic wonder of vintage digital reverbs, Golden Reverberator packs decades of iconic reverb sounds into a single, beautifully-crafted stompbox. Spring 65, Plate 140, and Hall 224 effects, each with available modulation, offer an essential palette of vintage reverb textures.

Starlight Echo Station: Famed Analog and Digital Delays

UAFX Starlight

Borrowing from UA’s deep expertise in analog emulation, Starlight Echo Station offers the finest classic delay effects ever captured in a stompbox. Featuring three delay types — Tape EP-III, Analog DMM, and Precision — capturing iconic hardware of the past 60 years, Starlight offers additional settings for tape wear, modulation, and preamp color for endless inspiring tones.

Astra Modulation Machine: A Trio of Timeless Modulation Effects

UAFX Astra Modulation Machine

Astra Modulation Machine is a complete sonic workstation. From spacey studio flanger tones of the 1970’s, to gritty bucket-brigade chorus, and luscious opto tube tremolo, Astra puts three perfectly-emulated modulation sounds at your feet. Chorus Brigade, Flanger DBLR, and Trem 65 settings — with secondary modes for Vibrato, Doubling, and more — combine for an abundance of tasteful tweaking.
