    Glad I Did

    I had 2 UAD-1's and was just gonna let them go by the wayside and say goodbye to my UAD plugs but I was lucky enough to come into some dough right before the trade-in voucher was gonna expire. Now I wish I would have done it a long time ago. The new engine and plugs are by far the best I have ever used. More power than both of the UAD-1 with tons to spare.

    (wow! blown away)

    Love this product and everything about it i own a satellite quad core. For one i love how it uses its own cpu and its POWER of 4 SHARC chips. Also great professional sounding plugins that change how you hear you'r music and it's very easy to use and its PORTABLE. The only thing is my interface the 003 rack my DSP is at 400 gotta get it at 800 so i can run more plugins. All i gotta say UNIVERSAL AUDIO trust in that name.

    I got this as a promotion item for purchasing the 6176. I love the UA plugins, they sound great. Some things that I didn't like is that when you go to add a plugin to a track all of the available plugins that ua offers show up. so you may add a plugin that you didn't purchase which would activate a trial period of that plugin if you choose. I just wish that there was an option to just show the plugins that you purchased to save time. I made a list so I can refer to it. also the unit drops out every now and then, it's an easy fix, you just have to power off the device and power it back on. Another great feature is in the control panel for the quad core, it shows you all of the plugins that ua offers, the ability to purchase them with a click of a button and better yet, If you have a plugin that you want to know more about, just click on the question mark and it brings you to the plugins page where it tells you everything about it from history to what it is used for to the controls and how to use them. Great feature for a newbie like me with this unit. You can't go wrong with a UA product and Sweetwaters customer service and support is top notch.

    UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Core

    The most analog sounding software in the business bar known!! Has definitely smoothed out and warmed my projects. Raises the value of my work and clients are loving the sound. A little expensive but the emulation of these classic hardware devices is as close as it gets without spending REAL money for these devices. Love it!!
