    What an amazing solution

    I was initially looking at a more complicated external processing solution because I was not aware of UA's offering. Thankfully my Sweetwater engineer, Brandon, told me about the UAD-2 and I could not be happier. I already have a Sweetwater Creation Station, so installation into one of the computer's available card slots was super easy. The software installation and licensing/registration all went off without a hitch too. Works seamlessly with my DAW (Live 9).

    I have used some great plug ins from other vendors, and still do at times, but there is something uniquely special about these UA models. The included plug ins and the ones I was able to select as part of the Custom package (a good savings by the way) have all been sonically outstanding. I love UA's monitoring utility which let's you know at a glance exactly how much capacity you have remaining on the card. So far I haven't even come close to maxing it out. I would call the genre I work most in modern popular Christian music.

    This is an absolutely fantastic solution when you want to save processing power on your PC and desire the highest quality plug ins available.

    Thanks for talking me into this one! Tony!

    On plugins this device is amazing. It basically works like a computer within your computer. It operates on it's own and your computer will not get taxed when it comes to running plugins. Also the classic plugin bundle included is really all you ever need, but the extra 3 plugins is awesome. I got the Ampex, Studer and Lexicon 224, which comes out to be another $1,000 for free! Thanks TOday Dayton at Sweetwater... you're the best Rep, a dude who cares about his customers, and knows how to suite their needs!

    Amazing device

    This is an amazing device and well worth the money if you're trying to produce professional sounding results. Love the Pultec's and the EMT reverbs. The Echoplex has same dark sound I remember and is a wonderful emulation. Still working with the different plugs but so far just amazing.
