Universal Audio releases UAD Software v8.0

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released UAD Software v8.0. UAD Software v8.0 includes Apollo Expanded, allowing users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo DUO, Apollo QUAD, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces to freely combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows.

Apollo Expanded also marks the introduction of Console 2.0 software, giving Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo users dynamic new workflow options with more than 25 new user-requested features. Console 2.0 will also be coming to Apollo FireWire interfaces (Mac and Windows) in Fall 2015.

Key Features:

  • "Mix and Match" up to four Apollos (any model) over Thunderbolt (Mac).
  • Simple Thunderbolt cable cascading between units.
  • Combine up to six UAD-2 devices per system.
  • New Console 2.0 — High-resolution 64-bit software interface for Thunderbolt-equipped Apollos with over 25 new user-requested features.
  • New Flex Driver lets users customize Core Audio I/O — name, save, and share presets for different hardware setups and DAWs.
  • Star clocking over Thunderbolt distributes high-quality clock to all Apollos.
  • Add an Apollo Twin for desktop monitor control as well as additional DSP and connectivity.

UAD Software v8.0 also adds Mac OS X Yosemite compatibility and all-new plug-in categories to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform:

Sound Machine Wood Works Plug-In — $299:

  • Record your acoustic guitar direct, in real time with microphone quality sound using Apollo Twin, DUO, or QUAD.
  • Provides the rich resonance and vibrancy missing from unprocessed acoustic guitar pickups.
  • No time-consuming setup; provides consistent premium sound every time you monitor or record acoustic guitar.
  • Freedom to re-mic as you mix, changing and adding microphones as needed to fit your production.

UA Distortion Essentials Plug-In Bundle — $249:

  • Features the legendary Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808 (also sold separately for $129), Raw Distortion (based on the vintage early-80s Pro Co Rat), and Bermuda Triangle (based on the early 70s-era Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi) plug-ins.
  • Harnesses Unison technology to precisely emulate the circuit interaction, gain range, and clip points of the original stompboxes.

Friedman Amplifiers Plug-In Collection by Brainworx — $249:

  • Faithful emulation of two modern boutique amps inspired by classic British tube amps, designed by legendary amp guru David Friedman.
  • FX Rack features lo-fi delay, noise gate, and filter controls.
  • 66 impulse responses for each amp, with multiple speaker cabinets recorded in a state of the art room with stellar gear.
  • Re-amp less than perfect DI guitar tracks, previously recorded with other guitar amp simulations.
  • Developed by Brainworx exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo audio interfaces.
