The UAD-2 Satellite USB QUAD Custom from Universal Audio is a DSP accelerator that allows for accessing UAD plug-ins within any DAW software running on USB 3-equipped Windows computers. Powered by four SHARC processors, the stand-alone DSP accelerator provides extensive plug-in instantiation for large mixes without taxing the host computer, while also delivering world-class analog emulation. A custom software bundle allows users to choose any three UAD plug-in titles at registration in addition to the included Analog Classics Plus bundle.
In creating UAD plug-ins, the company's DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers using their exact schematics and best units, to provide the experience of processing audio with classic analog equipment. The accelerator's SHARC processors and USB 3 SuperSpeed technology offers reduced plug-in latency compared to FireWire 800.
The included Analog Classics plug-in bundle features the UA 610-B Preamp and EQ, along with Legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier, Fairchild 670 Tube Limiter, Pultec Pro Equalizer, UA Precision Enhancer Hz, Precision Mix Rack Collection, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins.
Note: Purchasers must select all three individual Custom Software Bundle plug-ins simultaneously, within 45 days of product registration. Purchasers failing to select all three plug-ins within 45 days of registration will automatically receive three UAD plug-ins of UA's choosing.
