What is your overall opinion of this product?
The UAD-2 platform is incredible.DSP has come a long way!I purchased the Custom version of this card.AMS was so helpful and so friendly on helping me I thank them all great company.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How well are the controls and connections laid out?
Install the software from UAD first then slap your card in..simple as it gets.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The card itself with the new SHARC's are great( roughly 2.5 times stronger than the old UAD-1 versions).Above and beyond the old UAD-1's I have.The plug-ins themselves are well enough to make you speechless.Having used many of them in the "real" world I can say they have just nailed it!.To be able to have these ITB now is awesome!. I own the Waves versions of a few of the plug-ins and the small difference is awesome. Just like real gear no two real pieces of gear sound the exact same..
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
It might be a bit expensive for some.Music is a VERY expensive hobby. For those of us who do this for a living it just another expense ;).. When I can I will get another one.UAD ....should have purchased one sooner.Won't make you a better mix engineer but will give some awesome vintage gear to work with.Better than spending 200K on gear ;)..
