Limited explanation with the use of UA plugins

Maybe it's the choice of electronic music that was chosen for this tutorial that was lame compared to what's is used in today's listening world. Could of gotten same results with standard DAW plugins used compared to UAD expensive plugins. Did nothing for me who uses Apollo interfaces.
