    UAD-2: The industry’s 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.

    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.

    UAD plug-in craftsmanship: The science behind the scenes.
    Most people don’t immediately think of audio software when they hear the word craftsmanship. But that’s what separates UAD plug-ins from the rest. One of the most common responses we hear from UAD users is, “Wow, I didn’t know plug-ins could sound this good.” That’s because in developing UAD plug-ins, UA’s 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. It’s how UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware, bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics in the box.

    UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate 2 PCIe DSP Accelerator Package
    The ultimate collection of UAD Powered Plug-Ins, powered by UA’s flagship eight-processor DSP Accelerator.

    The top-of-the-line UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate 2 DSP Accelerator features Universal Audio’s most powerful PCIe processing hardware, combined with an extensive collection of 73 UA-developed plug-ins. In creating UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers, using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears, to develop fully authenticated plug-ins with all the warmth and harmonics of classic analog equipment.

    The UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate 2 features eight SHARC processors and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped desktop computer or compatible expansion chassis (PCIe or Thunderbolt*), giving your Mac or PC the ultimate boost in audio quality and mix processing power. With all 73 UA-developed** plug-in titles — including Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, Fairchild, Harrison, Little Labs, Studer, SSL, and many more — the Ultimate 2 offers extraordinary sonic possibilities.

    Fully Mac and Windows 7-compatible, with support for VST, Audio Units, and RTAS, the UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate 2 is easy to use. Just install the software and PCIe card, and start mixing with some of the world’s finest audio plug-ins.
