Universal Audio just released a software emulation plugin of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor for the UAD-Platforms.
Like the hardware version, the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor plug-in offers selection of three distinct output transformers (Nickel, Iron, and Steel) — taking the signal from “clean” to “colored” and “dirty” — as if selecting from the output stages of three distinct classic analog consoles.
Lemme tell you that just sounds jummy. UAD’s marketing dept. just made 100pts on my scale of 0-100 ;-)

Created by the highly trained monkeys at Brainworx, developed for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform
Separate Optical and Discrete (VCA) dynamics sections for two-stage serial dynamics control
Transformer matrix switches between Nickel, Iron, and Steel output transformers — like selecting between 3 distinct vintage console outputs
90Hz sidechain filtering for musical compression of low-frequency program material
Large, accurate VU meters provide Optical, Discrete, or Output gain views
Custom presets created by Peter Reardon

Checking the site’s current access statistics shows a kinda interesting result: many unique visitors come from California (as half as much as are coming from whole Germany). We wanna take the time to say thanks from Berlin, guys ;-)
The story is burning all the Apple related pages. Although Apple officials say, their iPhone 4G prototype has been stolen, Gizmodo.com argues it has been lost by an Apple employee named Gray Powell. Powell is a developer at Apple and currently he works on Apple’s latest baseband.
It seems Powell has lost the device in the german restaurant Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, California, after having had too much of our wonderful german beer.
Anyway Gizmodo.com now got their hands on the device and show what it’s got. Sadly they cannot get past the “connect to iTunes” logo because the device has been deactivated over the air obviously using mobile me.
We feel like the iPhone Dev Team or GeoHot should get their hands on that device. Until further news enjoy Gizmodo’s vid:
