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. — 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 Custom card features 8 Analog Devices SHARC floating-point processors and the "Analog Classics" bundle plug-in suite that includes the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifiers, Pultec EQP-1A, and Realverb Pro plug-ins; PLUS you pick any three individual UAD plug-ins at registration!
