Analog Classics is a software bundle UAD is including in ALL of their UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards. It is a collection of several of their best-selling and most-popular plug-ins to date — titles that truly capture UA’s Heritage, exemplify the quality of analog hardware emulations, and bring classic analog sound to the digital domain.

The Analog Classics Software Bundle Features:
  • LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler — This plug-in is the world’s most accurate emulation of our revered, electro-optical, analog compressor.
  • 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier — This plug-in is the world’s most accurate emulation of UA’s legendary, FET-based, hardware classic.
  • 1176SE Limiting Amplifier — A DSP-optimized version of the 1176LN, yielding higher instance counts and its own unique characteristics.
  • Pultec EQP-1A EQ — Another spot-on emulation of classic analog gear. Pultec EQs have been studio staples for decades and this plug-in proves equally indispensible.
  • RealVerb Pro Room Modeler — The RealVerb Pro has often been hailed repeatedly as the most flexible and natural sounding reverb plug-in in the industry.
With its four SHARC processors, the UAD 2 Quad lets you run large professional mixes with ultra high-quality plug-ins, freeing up your Mac or PC's internal processor for other mixing or virtual instrument duties. Whether you use Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo or Performer, a UAD 2 Quad offers rich, analog sound quality that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with a native Mac- or PC-based system.

Developed by the industry’s finest engineering team, and backed by frequent new software and plug-in releases, UAD 2 Quad cards have found a home with many of the world’s leading engineers and producers, powering multiple Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning records.
