Universal Audio UAD-2 Octo overview

  • 1Description

As the company's most powerful DSP accelerator PCIe card, Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate 6 enables professional power users to run demanding projects with high plug-in instances and/or high sample rates without needing any help from the computer's CPU. The card easily installs on Windows and Mac workstations equipped with a desktop tower or a PCIe-to-Thunderbolt expansion chassis. Featuring eight SHARC processors, it supercharges your workstation and integrates with other UAD-2 devices including additional UAD-2 PCIe cards, the UAD-2 Satellite, and Apollo audio interfaces. The UAD-2 OCTO allows you to create large professional mixes filled with rich analog emulation plug-ins, which are difficult or impossible to achieve with native recording systems.

The Ultimate 6 bundle comprises all 95 UA-developed plug-in titles up to UAD software v9.4. It features a library of authentic analog gear emulations developed in collaboration with iconic manufacturers such as Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Fairchild, Studer, Fender, SSL, Empirical Labs, and more, using their exact original schematics and experienced ears. With its abundance of EQs, channels strips, compressors, delays, reverbs, and more, the collection brings the warmth of classic analog equipment into your DAW.
