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).

Plugin Alliance adds USB flash drive activation to licensing system

Plugin Alliance has announced it has added flexible and convenient USB flash drive activation to its licensing system as of July 13th, 2012.

Plugin Alliance USB flash drive activation

Aside from its growing family of unsurpassed effects plug-ins — meticulously modelling high-end hardware from the likes of Brainworx, Mäag Audio, SPL, and Vertigo Sound, Plugin Alliance has always prided itself on its easy-to-use licensing system (using a single file to manage all licenses for activation on up to three computers)… clicking Activate when launching a new plug-in for the first time downloads a new license file to the computer in question from the Plugin Alliance server. Couldn’t be simpler, surely?

Simpler, no; more flexible, maybe. Now the Plugin Alliance activation system is even more flexible, offering users complete freedom to roam by transferring their licenses and plug-in installers to a single standard USB flash drive requiring only one USB port — unlike most other proprietary USB-based licensing systems.

A USB flash drive can be used to run Plugin Alliance plug-ins on other computers without having to activate those specific machines beforehand; plug-ins can be quickly copied onto different computers (or Avid’s VENUE live sound production systems) on a temporary basis before being deleted with no need to deactivate the computer (and/or console) afterwards, making it a perfect solution for touring FOH engineers or recording engineers who regularly work in different studios.

What’s more, Plugin Alliance has rigorously tested its new ‘roaming’ license system with Waves’ License Center-based equivalent while Waves did likewise; both companies are happy to report that users can use the same USB flash drive for their Plugin Alliance and Waves plug-ins and license files without interfering with each other. Simply perfect.

Imagine the convenience of being able to take your complete Plugin Alliance plug-in collection wherever you like, whenever you like, all on one single standard USB flash drive. Well, there’s no need to imagine anymore.

Wherever you may roam… plug in to your new Plugin Alliance production or recording home!

Plugin Alliance Giveaway: The BIG 4 Bundle

Plugin Alliance

Dirk Ulrich of Brainworx recently launched the Plugin Alliance, a one-stop shop for several plug-in developers.

These currently include Maag Audio, Elysia, SPL, Vertigo, Brainworx, with plug-ins from Millenia, Chandler, Neve, and Charter Oak to be expected in 2012.

Easy license management, hassle-free installation, great sound and reliability. One license file for all your plugins, that´s it.

While I do use a few plug-ins that require a hardware dongle, I totally prefer not having to use them. I think it’s pretty exciting Plugin Alliance has created this software based system for managing all licenses of Plugin Alliance plug-ins in one place.

If you are interested in checking out how all this works, just head on over to the Plugin Alliance website and get some (or all) of the free plug-ins from Elysia (niveau filter), SPL (Free Ranger), and Brainworx (bx_cleansweep V2 & bx_solo).

But wait, there’s more!

This bundle will give you a rock solid and tight mastering chain or stereo bus setup. The bx_XL, Passeq and alpha Compressor all work in M/S modes optionally.

To enter the giveaway you need to answer the following questions:

  1. bx_XL is based upon the M/S technology from which other Brainworx plug-in?

  3. The elysia alpha compressor plugin offers a signal coloration different from the hardware unit, what is this mode called?
  4. How many different sets of adjustments can be saved within one instance of SPL’s Passeq?

ToneBuilder releases Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back sample library

ToneBuilder has released Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back, a drum and percussion sample library.

ToneBuilder Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back

“What if a time-capsule was discovered that contained never before heard drum machines… With the classic character of the 909, 808, 707, SP1200, Drumulator, and Linns…”

“What if Don Buchla created a drum machine…”

“What if that time-capsule also contained a drum machine from the future…”

These are the questions I had in mind, a game I played, during the creation of Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back. But the real questions are what would you do today with these sounds, what genres could you invent, who’s mind could you blow?

A few people enjoyed Driven Machine Drum and wrote in asking me to continue working on sound design, so I decided to sell a large portion of my kit and double down on some of the best analog and digital synthesis technology available today… if not the best.

DMD Strikes Back features

  • 2072 Premium Designer Drum Samples.
  • 24-Bit/96kHz WAV, 24-Bit/96kHz AIF.
  • Intelligently organized and labeled for optimal creative work-flow.
  • 16-Bit/44.1kHz WAV, featuring premium dithering/SRC and 8 character names for classic samplers such as the MPC and Akai series.
  • 22 FXPansion Geist and Guru Kits.
  • Deluxe Edition: Logic EXS-24 programs (also compatible with Digidesign’s Structure).
  • Deluxe Edition: Native Intruments Kontakt programs.

Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back is available to purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD (Standard Edition) $77 USD (Deluxe Edition) until October 31, 2011.
