Universal Audio announces new UAD-2 hardware and UAD Powered Plug-In software bundles

Universal Audio has announced a complete re-imagination of the popular UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

Highlighted by the new flagship UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator card, featuring eight SHARC processors, the UAD-2 Series offers new Custom and Ultimate software bundles and more affordable pricing for all UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD DSP Accelerator models.

UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate
Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate bundle.
  • New OCTO DSP Accelerators — Heavyweight Processing Power
    The new top-of-the-line UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator ($1,499US) features eight SHARC processors on a single PCIe card and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped Mac or PC workstation or compatible expansion chassis — giving music producers and engineers twice the processing power of its UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator counterpart. For UAD power users running large audio sessions with high UAD plug-in instances and/or high sample rates, the UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator is the uncompromising professional solution.
  • New UAD-2 “Custom” Bundles — Pick Any 3 UAD Plug-Ins
    For just $400US more than a UAD-2 DUO, QUAD, or OCTO “Core” DSP Accelerator model, UAD users can now step up to UAD-2 Custom bundles, selecting any three individual UAD plug-ins within 45 days of their new UAD-2 hardware registration. With a world-renowned UAD plug-in library that includes Ampex®, Manley®, Lexicon®, Studer®, EMT®, Empirical Labs®, Neve®, SSL®, Roland®, and more, UAD-2 Custom bundles deliver a potential software value of more than $1,000US (depending on UAD plug-ins selected), at significant savings to new UAD-2 users.
  • New UAD-2 “Ultimate” Bundles — The Definitive Collection
    Combining the most powerful UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware with the most complete UAD plug-in bundle available, the new UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate (PCIe card format) and UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Ultimate (FireWire format) packages offer an extensive library of more than 55 UA-developed plug-ins, up to and including UAD Software v6.3*. These UAD-2 Ultimate packages represent the definitive collection of more than 10 years of UAD plug-in development.
  • More Affordable UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core Models
    Alongside the new UAD-2 hardware and software introductions, UA is debuting new, more affordable pricing for the “Core” models of UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD PCIe hardware and UAD-2 DUO and QUAD Satellite FireWire hardware. All UAD-2 Core models include the popular “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle, featuring the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN/1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifiers, Pultec EQP-1A, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins. Additional UAD plug-ins can be purchased from UA’s Online Store.

“We’re excited by the additional power and flexibility that this new UAD-2 lineup provides,” says CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. “Not only has the processing power doubled with the UAD-2 OCTO model, but it’s now easier for users to customize their UAD-2 packages right out of the box. And with our new aggressive pricing for SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core models, UAD-2 is now even more accessible to producers who want to add authentic analog tone in their recordings.

Estimated US Street Prices for UAD-2 Desktop (PCI-Express) and Satellite (FireWire) DSP Accelerators:

  • UAD-2 OCTO (PCIe): $1,499 (Core) / $1,899 (Custom) / $5,499 (Ultimate).
  • UAD-2 QUAD (PCIe): $999 (Core) / $1,399 (Custom).
  • UAD-2 DUO (PCIe): $699 (Core) / $1,099 (Custom).
  • UAD-2 SOLO (PCIe): $299 (Core).
  • UAD-2 QUAD Satellite (FireWire): $999 (Core) / $1,399 (Custom) / $4,999 (Ultimate).
  • UAD-2 DUO Satellite (FireWire): $699 (Core) / $1,099 (Custom).

UAD-2 SatelliteThe UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library within easy reach of Firewire 800 and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP engineers work with leading hardware manufacturers – including Roland, Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs, Trident, SPL, EMT and more – using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears. This gives computer-based musicians and engineers the warmth and harmonics of classic analog recordings, wherever they mix.

  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select Firewire 800 and 400 equipped computers.
  • Compatible with a wide range of modern Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros.
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more – without taxing host computer CPU.
  • 5 models to choose from:
    • DUO (Core).
    • DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD (Core).
    • QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
    • QUAD Omni v5.7 (w/ 50 UAD plug-ins).
