Stunning analog power for your Mac or PC tower.

Ready to super-charge your Mac or PC tower with world-class analog sound? UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards provide full access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins, including exclusive plug-ins from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL and more. The UAD-2 packages feature a user-installable PCIe-format processing card for your desktop tower or compatible expansion chassis, plus the Analog Classics plug-in bundle (VST/AU/RTAS), giving you vintage tone and character, right out of the box.

UAD-2: The industrys most respected collection of audio plug-ins.
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have been winning over audio professionals for more than 10 years. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins so faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment from rare compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines.

The award-winning UAD library features over 90 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled Custom and Ultimate 2 packages, or you can buy UAD plug-ins la carte from UA’s Online Store.

Expandable processing power, from SOLO to OCTO.

UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards are available in four distinct processor levels: SOLO, DUO, QUAD, and OCTO. With scalable processing power from one (SOLO) to eight (OCTO) individual Analog Devices SHARC processors, UAD DSP Accelerators offer a big mixing horsepower boost to your host Mac or PC workstation. Much like a studio rack filled with dedicated analog gear, UAD PCIe cards let you reliably run larger mixes, filled with rich, sonically complex plug-ins no matter what the rest of your system is doing. For example, a UAD-2 OCTO can run up to 80 mono instances of our groundbreaking Studer A800 Tape Machine plug-in a processing task that would bring a native workstation to its knees.

Available as Core, Custom, and Ultimate 2 software packages.

UAD-2 DSP Accelerators are available as Core,Custom, and Ultimate 2 software packages. The Core package includes the Analog Classics plug-in bundle (see contents above right). The Custom package includes Analog Classics bundle, plus it lets you pick any three individual UAD plug-ins at registration. The OCTO Ultimate 2 is UAs flagship package, and includes more than 73 UA-developed plug-ins up to and including UAD software v7.3.

UAD plug-in craftsmanship: The science behind the scenes.

Most people dont immediately think of audio software when they hear the word craftsmanship.But thats what separates UAD plug-ins from the rest. One of the most common responses we hear from UAD users is, Wow, I didnt know plug-ins could sound this good.Thats because in developing UAD plug-ins, UAs engineering group undertakes a thorough physical modeling of classic audio hardware. This process means that we essentially rebuild vintage analog gear in the digital world, component by component. Its how UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics "in the box."
