Description

Crafted on the foundation of the award-winning UAFX dual-engine processing and a passion for top-tier sonic quality, the Universal Audio Max Preamp and Dual Compressor Effects Pedal offers the vibrant tones of three renowned limiters and an iconic tube preamp, all at your fingertips.

Discover Iconic Compression using the UA 1176
Translating UA founder Bill Putnam's vision to your pedalboard, Max provides the classic FET compressor responsible for crafting legendary studio guitar sounds over the years. Whether you seek to funk up your music, enhance sustain, or infuse subtle tonal variations, this compressor has got you covered.

Experience Warm Tube Compression with the Teletronix LA-2A
This famed optical tube limiter offers a softer, warmer approach to dynamics control compared to the 1176. Tailor your compression with the exclusive Ratio feature only available on the pedal, allowing for nuanced compression beyond what vintage hardware and UAD plug-in versions offer.

Achieve Funky, Gritty Sounds with the Classic Dyna Comp*
Introduce the gritty compression and funky overdrive of this notorious red pedal to enhance your music with lo-fi textures and sleazy slide tones.

Integrate the Legendary UA 610 Tube Preamp into Your Setup
Capture the rich detail and character of UA's iconic tube preamp and EQ, shaping killer sounds with precisely tuned harmonics and grit.

Experiment with Compressor Stacking for Unique Tonal Possibilities
Max enables you to effortlessly stack compressors in various combinations to explore a vast range of sounds and textures, allowing you to elevate your tones to the forefront regardless of the level of limiting applied.

Customize Your Pedal Using a Mobile App
Utilize the UAFX Control app to adjust EQ settings, implement serial/parallel operation, and incorporate a sidechain bass filter for personalized compression and preamp effects.
