This is my 2nd card & I love the plug-ins..The Flexi-pac was a great value.. If your looking for more processing power & a good buy on the plug-ins then this is the way to go.. It'll get better when they go 64 bit ( they still run fine in a 64 bi host @ 32 bit.. Enjoy
In the past, I have bought plugins and they sounded like plugins. Harsh. Digital. Thin. The UAD-2 is literally the first time I have spent money on software/hardware plugins that I would actually use in place of their hardware equivalent. The plugins included out of the box are great. I use the Pultec on almost everything. The LA2A and the 1176ln and se are wonderful on drums and bass and even on buss mixes. The additional plugins I bought were the Studer A800 and the Fatso Jr/Sr. Both are insane. The Studer reacts like an actual tape machine would with regard to Input/Output gain levels and saturation. The biasing is great, the tape formulas and ips control work magic on mixes or single tracks. It really sounds like I've tracked it to tape. As for the Fatso, it makes nearly anything sound huge. If you drop it into a bass track it can easily fill up the bottom end with chest rattling bass without muddying the mix. It also adds a strange sort of golden sheen to tracks that's hard to explain. It's almost like it has a really nice natural eq that happens when you apply it to a track. I look forward to buying and using more of their plugins. I have been fully impressed so far. Is it expensive, yes. Did I spend as much or more on a variety of other sub par plugins that will sit in the insert panel and never get touched again, yes. I wish I could have all of that money back to spend with UA. These are faithful emulations of some of the best and most expensive analog gear around and it's done flawlessly.
