We are currently running two Uad 2 units. One being a quad pcie card which stays firmly mounted in our computer at all times and the other is a quad satellite which we use when moving from studio to studio. We have a huge selection of plugins on these two units including plugin emulations from Neve, Api, Manley, Ampex and Lexicon. A full list of plugins can be found below. Throughout this week we will be reviewing some of the plugins giving our verdict on them and how useful they are in your productions.

We use the Uad 2 and it’s plugins during Mixdown. Because some mix downs can include around 70 channels of audio it’s incredibly important to be able to offload some plugin power onto a Uad card. When offloading plugin power you free up space on your computers CPU allowing your daw and other program’s to run smoothly. On our setup of 2 quad units we have a total of 8 Motorola dsp analog chips. What these chips do is emulate analogue hardware to the highest quality. For this quality it’s not cheap. Each plugin costs between £100-£300.

In conclusion if you are serious about taking your mix downs to the next level and don’t want to jump out the box this is the way to go. No ad da conversion and multiple instances can be loaded. Awesome product we could not live with out it. Top marks Universal Audio.
