Turbocharged with eight Analog Devices SHARC chips, the UAD-2 OCTO Core PCIe card gives you massive DSP power that takes the load off your CPU. You also get the Analog Classics collection, a killer bundle of UAD-powered plug-ins that will infuse your mixes with the warmth of studio-standard analog processing hardware.
With the UAD-2 OCTO’s LiveTrack mode, latency on your active UAD-2 plug-ins becomes a non-issue — just what you need for monitoring processed audio during live tracking. On the mixing side, Universal Audio gave the UAD-2 OCTOa handy LoadLock feature, which 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.
The Analog Classics collection starts off with the classic UA dynamics processors: the iconic LA-2A Leveling Amplifier and 1176LN/SE limiters. It’s uncanny how realistic these plug-ins sound, let alone the fact that your UAD-2 card has more than enough juice to run mulitple instances of both at once! Then there’s a spot-on re-creation of the legendary Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, 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 à la carte at the UAD store.
Plug Universal Audio’s amazing UAD-2 OCTOCore PCIe card into your computer and experience what your mixes — and workflow — have been missing!
