Universal Audio has made itself known as the first stop for the perfect combination of processing power and the finest collection of plugins available. True-to-life re-creations of the most respected and sought-after analog hardware in the history of recording have been meticulously designed with the original manufacturers using schematics, features and even alternative options offered by these units, giving you a virtual library of processing that rivals world-class studios. In fact, many of those studio use these plugins themselves because of the accuracy, authenticity, precision and convenience that even some of the original units cannot provide.

Each plugin can be applied to any track separately, while you would need separate units for each in your rack...100's of thousands of dollars-worth of processing hardware, from Manley, Fairchild, SSL, Lexicon, Ampex, Neve and more, all within reach on your computer screen.
Extra Processing Power
If you decide to apply an API 500 EQ to 5 keyboard tracks, a Pultec to the horn tracks, a Manley Massive Passive to the drum tracks, a  LA-2A compressor and a Lexicon 224 verb to all 10 vocals, a Neve channel to the main buss... your computer normally would begin to struggle under the strain, but not anymore. With the Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate DSP Accelerator living in your PCIe slot, you'll have extra processors taking the load of those plugins off your computer, allowing your DAW run as fast and smooth as it did when you started your project.
