      Universal Audio UAD-2 Solo (105123137)
Availability:  


The fast, easy way to step up to UAD powered plug-ins which capture the real magic of analog.

The UAD-2 SOLO gives producers and engineers a simple, powerful entry point into the award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform on Mac or PC. This DSP accelerator package includes several of Universal Audio's most popular analog classic plug-ins—the LA-2A and 1176 Compressors/Limiters, and the Pultec EQP-1A—for rich, vintage sound quality right out of the box. It also provides a processing boost for running larger mixes, thanks to its PCIe card with an onboard SHARC processor. Better still, it gives users access to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library, including some of the best-reviewed plug-ins of all time.

Specifically, the UAD-2 SOLO provides access to popular UAD plug-in titles from Manley, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, BOSS, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix, and more (sold separately), from any Mac or PC with available PCIe card slot. Whether you use Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer, or Pro Tools, the UAD-2 SOLO can inject the character and quality of classic hardware into your mixes, while freeing up your computer's internal processor for other mixing duties.

Mac- and Windows-compatible, with support for VST, Audio Units, and RTAS, the UAD-2 SOLO is easy to use. Just install the software, install the card, and start mixing. Developed by one of the industry's finest engineering teams, and backed by frequent new software and plug-in releases, the UAD-2 SOLO is the processing platform of choice for many of the world's top musicians, producers, and engineers. Now it's your turn to experience it.

  • 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.
