  • The best out there

    As reviewed by Chris on 7/7/2011

    The long and short of it is the plugins do exactly the same thing as their hardware counterpart but are much more convenient. You'll never want to use native plugins again. The only drawback of getting the Solo is you'll find yourself wanting more power, especially for the average track. If you want to use plugins such as the Massive Passive or FATSO for mixing, I recommend getting at least a Duo card as they eat up a lot of DSP. It's well worth the extra buck.

  • You owe it to your music

    As reviewed by jeremy on 3/16/2010

    Hands down, Universal audio makes the best emulations of their own outboard gear in the industry. I have used waves for along time and waves also has some wonderful plugs of their own, but when it comes to UA gear Universal audio brings it home. You can pay a couple grand for an outboard la-2a,3a,1176 or you can pay 400 for a UAD card and get the same result. If your serious about what you do, then you owe it to your music to make this purchase.
