Overview

The UAD-2 DUO DSP Accelerator is a workhorse of modern mixing, giving producers and engineers unrestricted access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins 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. Thanks to its PCIe card with dual SHARC processors, the UAD-2 DUO provides twice the processing boost of the UAD-2 SOLO, allowing for larger mixes. Better still, it gives users full access to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library, including some of the best-reviewed plug-ins of all time.

Specifically, the UAD-2 DUO 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). Whether you use Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer, or Pro Tools, these UAD-2 plug-ins 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 DUO 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 DUO DSP Accelerator is the processing platform of choice for many of the world's top musicians, producers, and engineers.
