Universal Audio announces new UAD-2 Hardware and UAD Powered Plug-in Software Bundles

Universal Audio has announced a complete re-imagination of the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform. Highlighted by the new flagship UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator card, featuring eight SHARC processors, the UAD-2 Series offers new Custom and Ultimate software bundles and more affordable pricing for all UAD-2 SOLO, Duo, and QUAD DSP Accelerator models.

New OCTO DSP Accelerators — Heavyweight Processing Power
The new top-of-the-line UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator ($1,499US) features eight SHARC processors on a single PCIe card and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped Mac OS X or Windows PC workstation or compatible expansion chassis — giving music producers and engineers twice the processing power of its UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator counterpart. For UAD power users running large audio sessions with high UAD plug-in instances and/or high sample rates, the UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator is UA's new uncompromising professional solution.

New UAD-2 "Custom" Bundles — Pick Any 3 UAD Plug-Ins
For just $400US more than a UAD-2 Duo, QUAD, or OCTO "Core" DSP Accelerator model, UAD users can now step up to UAD-2 Custom bundles, selecting any three individual UAD plug-ins within 45 days of their new UAD-2 hardware registration. With a UAD plug-in library that includes Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, Studer, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, SSL, Roland, and more, UAD-2 Custom bundles deliver a potential software value of more than $1,000US (depending on UAD plug-ins selected), at significant savings to new UAD-2 users.

New UAD-2 "Ultimate" Bundles — The Definitive Collection
Combining the most powerful UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware with the most complete UAD plug-in bundle available, the new UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate (PCIe card format) and UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Ultimate (FireWire format) packages offer an extensive library of more than 55 UA-developed plug-ins, up to and including UAD Software v6.3*. These UAD-2 Ultimate packages represent the definitive collection of more than 10 years of UAD plug-in development.

More Affordable UAD-2 SOLO, Duo, and QUAD Core Models
Alongside the new UAD-2 hardware and software introductions, UA is debuting new, more affordable pricing for the "Core" models of UAD-2 SOLO, Duo, and QUAD PCIe hardware and UAD-2 Duo and QUAD Satellite FireWire hardware. All UAD-2 Core models include the popular "Analog Classics" plug-in bundle, featuring the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN/1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifiers, Pultec EQP-1A, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins. Additional UAD plug-ins can be purchased from UA's Online Store.

"We're excited by the additional power and flexibility that this new UAD-2 lineup provides," says CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. "Not only has the processing power doubled with the UAD-2 OCTO model, but it's now easier for users to customize their UAD-2 packages right out of the box. And with our new aggressive pricing for SOLO, Duo, and QUAD Core models, UAD-2 is now even more accessible to producers who want to add authentic analog tone in their recordings."

Estimated US Street Prices for UAD-2 Desktop (PCI-Express) and Satellite (FireWire) DSP Accelerators:

Model Core Bundle Custom Bundle Ultimate Bundle
UAD-2 OCTO (PCIe) $1,499.00 $1,899.00 $5,499.00
