Universal Audio UAD-2 DUO Core Reviews

    Universal Audio UAD-2 DUO

    I've been happily using UAD-1 plug-ins for several years, but have resisted making the investment in the UAD-2 hardware. The two cards I had generally filled my needs, although I occasionally ran up against their processing limit. When Universal Audio made the offer I couldn't refuse by ending support for the old cards and offering a nice discount for upgrading, I realized the time had come.

    Since installing the new cards ( which was a painless procedure) I haven't reached their limit, though I should mention that I haven't yet purchased any of the UAD-2 plug-ins, which I expect would make greater demands of the hardware.

    I consider the UAD hardware a reasonable cost of admission to the UAD software; the processing power is an added bonus. Installation was simple and performance is perfect. I remain a happy UAD user.

    This Is The One To Have!

    I've been cutting and mixing records since the 80's and I was brought up on a Neve 8048 and an SSL 4000E, so naturally these were the first two plugins I checked out. The 1081EQ seemed a little smoother than I expected, but other than that it seemed dead on to me. The SSL strip was killer also! Back in the 80's I used actual LA2A's and 1176's and the ones that come with this card sound great. My signal flow was from the mic into the Neve through the LA2A and into a Studer A800, now I can re-create this using my UA gear. The card was also a breeze to install into my Mac Pro.
    Universal Audio is the Real Deal!

    The best!

    A UAD-2 card is the number one "must-have" for any DAW system. Their plug-in emulations of analog hardware standards (e.g., LA-2A, Neve 1073, EMT Plate 140, Roland Space Echo, others) are unparalleled. Believe the hype on this one. Highly recommended.
