Stunning analog power for your Mac or PC tower
Ready to super-charge your Mac or PC tower with world-class analog sound? UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards provide full access to UAD powered plug-ins, including exclusive plug-ins from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL and more. The UAD-2 packages feature a user-installable PCIe-format processing card for your desktop tower or compatible expansion chassis, plus the “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle (VST/AU/RTAS), giving you vintage tone and character, right out of the box.
UAD-2: The industry’s most respected collection of audio plug-ins
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have been winning over audio professionals for more than 10 years. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins so faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment — from rare compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines. And much like a studio rack filled with dedicated analog gear, UAD PCIe cards let you reliably run larger mixes, filled with rich, sonically complex plug-ins - no matter what the rest of your system is doing. For example, a UAD-2 OCTO can run up to 80 mono instances of the groundbreaking Studer A800 Tape Machine plug-in — a processing task that would bring a native workstation to its knees.
This UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate bundle includes the DSP Accelerator Card (PCIe format), along with the "Ultimate Bundle" that includes 55+ UA developed powered plug-ins up to and including software v6.3.
