Product Description for the Universal Audio UAD 2 Quad DSP Accelerator Card
The Ultimate in UAD Powered Plug-Ins, with QUAD Processing Power.
The UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator Card is Universal Audio’s most powerful and flexible processing hardware, giving producers and engineers full, professional access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins on Mac or PC. This PCIe card features four Analog Devices SHARC chips to “power” the largest collection of the world’s finest analog emulation plug-ins — including classics from Neve, Roland, BOSS, Empirical Labs, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix and more.
With its four SHARC processors, the UAD-2 QUAD lets you run large professional mixes with ultra high-quality plug-ins, freeing up your Mac or PC’s internal processor for other mixing or virtual instrument duties. Whether you use Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo or Performer, a UAD-2 QUAD offers rich, analog sound quality that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with a native Mac- or PC-based system.
Developed by the industry’s finest engineering team, and backed by frequent new software and plug-in releases, UAD-2 QUAD cards have found a home with many of the world’s leading engineers and producers, powering multiple Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning records.
