Experience Five Times UAD-1's DSP Power Plus $500 in Plug-ins!Plug Universal Audio's amazing UAD-2 DUO Flexi PCIe card into your computer and find out what your mixes have been missing! This powerful card delivers a collection of classic-sounding processing plug-ins that truly rival their hardware counterparts - at a fraction of the cost. You'll be amazed by the UAD-2 DUO Flexi's Analog Classics collection, which includes spot-on plug-in versions of the venerable LA-2A audio leveler, 1176LN/SE limiting amps, and Pultec's EQP-1A program EQ. You also get the outstanding RealVerb Pro room modeler and CS-1 channel strip plug-ins. The UAD-2 DUO Flexi card gives you all this plus the DSP power you need to take the load off of your CPU!
The UAD-2 cards take advantage of state-of-the-art chip technology. These SHARC chips boast 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to work on premium PCIe cards, such as the UAD-2 DUO Flexi, the power potential is truly phenomenal. While the power of each individual UAD-2 card is incredible on its own, you can use cards in tandem to meet the needs of even the most demanding sessions. In all, you can mix and match UAD-2 cards to create a maximum of a 4-card UAD-2 card system.
Using UAD-2 DUO Flexi's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible - ideal for monitoring rich, processed audio during the tracking stages. By default, UAD-2 DUO Flexi's LoadLock feature is turned on. This useful tool automatically reserves the maximum DSP load that each UAD-2 plug-in could ever demand - even if you're not using all of its features. This way, you'll be certain you have enough DSP to engage all the features, such as writing automation, later in your mix, without making sonic compromises and pulling plug-ins down the line. If you prefer to manage your DSP resources manually, you can easily disable LoadLock.
In addition to the tremendous plug-in package included with the UAD-2 DUO Flexi, you get a $500 plug-in voucher that you can use toward any of Universal Audio's world-class plug-ins. Recognized as an industry leader in creating dead-on models of the most sought-after vintage gear, Universal Audio offers affordably priced plug-in versions of everything from a Neve channel strip to a Fairchild compressor to the Roland Space Echo - and far, far beyond.
Universal Audio exploited every drop of power technologically possible in designing the UAD-2 cards. Complementing the achievement, they've expanded their power on the sonic front as well. You'll be able to open up your DAW to absolutely stunning plug-ins UA has developed in partnership with top names, such as Manley, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, BOSS, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix, and more. And with the potency packed in these new cards, Universal Audio has positioned themselves to develop entirely new kinds of plug-ins, including instruments and impulse-based reverb effects.

SOUNDS REMARKABLY CLOSE TO ORIGINAL UNITS
by Scott W from New York, NYThese are the best plug ins available on the market. They blow waves out of the water. The recreations are so spot on it is just scary. They simply nailed every single plug in they made.

The BEST Period!
by Pier Giacalone from Doylestown PAI had a 4 card UAD1 system back in 2005. I sold it when they changed PCI cards because I didn't want to buy all new cards. I wandered the plug-in desert for years trying to match the quality of UAD ... read more [+]plugs. Tried them all. Let me put this as plainly as possible: EVERY OTHER PLUG-IN ON THE MARKET IS A JOKE COMPARED TO THE UAD SYSTEM. I'm back and couldn't be happier. I have completely changed my plans for acquiring hardware compressors and EQs. There's simply no need and it's a waste of money with the UAD collection available. I have used almost all the actual hardware that the UAD plugs emulate. If there is ANY difference in sound between them it's so minimal that you'd have to be nuts to incur the extreme added cost and maintenance and limited use of the hardware. Don't spend another dime on hardware or plugs until you have a well-appointed UAD system. close [-]

UAD-2 card is mindblowing, and the company is top notch!
by Wesley Dysart from Atlanta/Dallas, GAFirst of all, as a long time member of the UAD family let me say this company is second to none.

I've never had a major issue, but anytime I had a question it was easy to get someone one the phone. Installing and authorizing is near transparent. The plugins are the best available if you ask me. I'm running a home studio and I love having the sound of Neve, Moog, Teletronix, SPL, etc. available in multiple instances and with the ability to automate and recall. If you're on the fence with UAD do yourself a favor and jump on board. You'll never look back. I'm literally proud to be a UAD user. The company fosters good will repeatedly and keeps releasing awesome new plugins. I like them so much I'm hear reviewing it because I want to help other people find out about them. It's the company you love to give your close [-]
