UAD: The Industry’s Most Respected Collection of Audio Plug-Ins
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have been winning over audio professionals for more than 10 years. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins so faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment — from rare compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines.
The UAD library features over 90 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled packages, or you can buy UAD plug-ins à la carte from UA’s Online Store.
Available with QUAD and OCTO Core Power
UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards are available in QUAD and OCTO configurations, with four or eight individual SHARC processors respectively. The four-processor UAD-2 QUAD is a workhorse of modern mixing, giving project studios the power to run medium-sized sessions. The eight-chip UAD-2 OCTO is perfect for UAD power users, allowing professionals to craft mixes filled with the rich analog sound of UAD plug-ins. Up to six UAD-2 devices can be combined in a single system.
Available in Core, Custom, and Ultimate 5 Software Packages
The Core package includes the Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, while Custom includes the Analog Classics Plus bundle, and a choice of any three individual UAD plug-ins at registration. The OCTO Ultimate 5 is UA’s flagship package, and includes all 89 UA-developed plug-ins plug-ins up to and including UAD software v9.0.*
UAD Plug-In Craftsmanship: The Science Behind the Scenes
In developing UAD plug-ins, UA’s engineering group undertakes a thorough physical modeling of classic audio hardware — “rebuilding” vintage analog gear in the digital world, component by component. That’s how UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware — bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics "in the box."
