Put UAD-powered Plug-ins to Work in Your DAW!Plug Universal Audio's amazing UAD-2 OCTO Core PCIe card into your computer and find out what your mixes have been missing! Turbocharged with eight Analog Devices SHARC chips, this UAD-2 OCTO gives you the awesome DSP power you need to take the load off your CPU, plus the Analog Classics collection - a killer bundle of UAD-powered plug-ins that will infuse your mix with the freakishly realistic sound of studio-standard analog gear. Any way you look at it, the Universal UAD-2 OCTO is a major upgrade to any studio.
Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Core DSP Plug-in Acceleration System at a Glance:
Experience the power of SHARC chip technology
Universal Audio's UAD-2 cards take advantage of state-of-the-art DSP technology, adding serious horsepower to your music-production system. Each of the eight SHARC chips onboard boasts 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to the test, the power potential of even a single UAD-2 system is more than impressive. Better still, you can mix and match up to four UAD-2 PCIe cards or Satellites, allowing you to meet the processing needs of even the most demanding sessions.
Flexible operation modes for tracking and mixing
Using UAD-2 OCTO's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible. That's just what you need for monitoring processed audio during the live tracking stages. On the mixing side, Universal Audio gave the UAD-2 OCTO a handy LoadLock feature. This useful tool lets you automatically reserve the maximum DSP load that each of your active UAD-2 plug-ins could ever demand, so you'll be certain you have enough DSP to engage features, such as writing automation, later.
Analog Classics starts you off with five killer UAD plug-ins
Universal Audio's Analog Classics collection starts off with a couple of classic UA dynamics processors: the iconic LA-2A audio leveler and 1176LN/SE limiting amplifiers. It's almost unfair how realistic these plug-ins sound, let alone the fact that your UAD-2 card has more than enough power to run several instances of both at once. Then there's a dead-on recreation of Pultec's legendary EQP-1A program EQ, plus the outstanding RealVerb Pro room modeler and CS-1 channel strip plug-ins. And if that's not enough, you can always pick up more plug-ins a la carte at the UAD store.
