Description
 
Plug Universal Audio's amazing UAD-2 QUAD Core PCIe card into your computer and find out what your mixes have been missing! Turbocharged with four Analog Devices SHARC chips, this UAD-2 QUAD gives you the awesome DSP power you need to take the load off your CPU, plus the Analog Classics collection - a killer bundle of UAD-powered plug-ins that will infuse your mix with the freakishly realistic sound of studio-standard analog gear. Any way you look at it, the Universal UAD-2 QUAD is a major upgrade to any studio.

Experience the power of SHARC chip technology
Universal Audio's UAD-2 cards take advantage of state-of-the-art DSP technology, adding serious horsepower to your music-production system. Each of the four SHARC chips onboard boasts 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to the test, the power potential of even a single UAD-2 system is more than impressive. Better still, you can mix and match up to four UAD-2 PCIe cards or Satellites, allowing you to meet the processing needs of even the most demanding sessions.

Flexible operation modes for tracking and mixing
Using UAD-2 QUAD's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible. That's just what you need for monitoring processed audio during the live tracking stages. On the mixing side, Universal Audio gave the UAD-2 QUAD a handy LoadLock feature. This useful tool lets you automatically reserve the maximum DSP load that each of your active UAD-2 plug-ins could ever demand, so you'll be certain you have enough DSP to engage features, such as writing automation, later.

Analog Classics starts you off with five killer UAD plug-ins
Universal Audio's Analog Classics collection starts off with a couple of classic UA dynamics processors: the iconic LA-2A audio leveler and 1176LN/SE limiting amplifiers. It's almost unfair how realistic these plug-ins sound, let alone the fact that your UAD-2 card has more than enough power to run several instances of both at once. Then there's a dead-on re-creation of Pultec's legendary EQP-1A program EQ, the Pultec Pro EQ, plus the outstanding RealVerb Pro room modeler. And if that's not enough, you can always pick up more plug-ins a la carte at the UAD store.

Plugs, as close to the real thing ... February 24, 2010
Reviewer: Rob Stokes from Nashville, TN United States  
I'm not one to write reviews but I have to say the UAD-2 Quad is the best addition to my studio in a long time.

These plug-ins just simply sound better than any others. When I inserted other plug-ins in the past I noticed a change even before I ever made an adjustment, and not for the better. The UAD-2 changed all that and indeed the plugs actually take on the characteristic of the original on insertion. The Neve 1073 eq sounds like the original and even the slightest adjustment goes a long way. When I insert them across all my tracks it comes as close to the real thing as I've ever experienced with plugs.

Thanks to Universal Audio for a great product and thanks to PAS and Warren White for exemplary service.
