From Our Research Team:
Pro-quality UA DSP - via FireWire!Attention Windows Users: UAD Version 6.4 now includes Windows 7 support for 64-bit plug-ins, UAD-2 Satellite and Apollo interfaces - requires Windows 7 64-bit and qualified PCIe-to-FireWire adapter.
Pick up a Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO Core system and get the performance and flexibility of UA's wildly successful UAD-2 DSP-powered plug-ins plus the convenience of FireWire. With a UAD-2 Satellite DUO, you'll have the ability to run high-track count sessions loaded with some of the best sounding plug-ins that money can buy - sessions that require processing power far beyond the capacity of your computer's CPU alone. And with the included Analog Classics collection of UAD-powered plug-ins to get you started, the Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO Core system gives you a ton of bang for the buck.
Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO 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. Both of the SHARC chips onboard boast 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 card is more than impressive. Better still, you can mix and match up to four UAD-2 cards, allowing you to meet the processing needs of even the most demanding sessions.
Flexible operation modes for tracking and mixing
Using UAD-2 Satellite DUO'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 Satellite DUO 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.

Universal Audio never disappoints.
by Paul Weisenburger from Buffalo, NYUniversal Audio never disappoints. The UAD-2 Duo Core was up and running, with all my purchased plug ins from my desktop system, within 15 min. No artifacts or bugs in the audio.

The missing ingredient
by David from Wichita, KSAdding this unit to your gear arsenal is a must. Extremely accurate emulations of excellent analog gear makes any track sound polished. i purchased the Duo Core and it works great for my rig, but de... read more [+]finitely go with the Quad if you have the cash. UAD has great deals on plugins all the time so it's really easy to save on great EQ/Compressor/Reverbs. I like being able to have the unit dashboard running with my DAW so I can see how much processing power is available and make sure nothing crashes on me. The processing power this unit adds to my projects is great, the only con I can think of about the Duo I have is that it can't run quite as many simultaneous plugins as the Quad can, but it's easy to work around that by getting your settings where you want them and then printing tracks with the effects and moving on. Since I've been using this unit, I don't look at my mixes and think that there's something missing anymore. This fills in all the holes and makes any track sound 10 times better. close [-]

Issues with Liquid 56
