Universal Audio (UA) in Scotts Valley, Calif., announces a new version of the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform with a new flagship UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator card ($1,499). 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.

The new UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator card features eight SHARC processors on a single PCIe card and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped Mac or PC workstation or compatible expansion chassis, offering twice the processing power of its UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator counterpart. The UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator offers a solution for UAD power users who run large audio sessions with high UAD plug-in instances or high sample rates.

For $400 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. UAD-2 Custom bundles offer a UAD plug-in library that includes Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, Studer, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, SSL, Roland, and more.

The new UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate (PCIe card format) and UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Ultimate (FireWire format) packages combine UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware with a UAD plug-in bundle comprising more than 55 UA-developed plug-ins, up to and including UAD Software Version 6.3. These UAD-2 Ultimate packages represent the definitive collection of more than 10 years of UAD plug-in development.

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.
