Plug Universal Audio's amazing UAD-2 OCTO Core PCIe card into your computer and find out what your mixes have been missing! Turbocharged with eight Analog Devices SHARC chips, this UAD-2 OCTO gives you the awesome DSP power you need to take the load off your CPU, plus the Analog Classics Plus collection — a killer bundle of UAD powered plug-ins that will infuse your mix with the freakishly realistic sound of studio-standard analog gear. Any way you look at it, the Universal UAD-2 OCTO is a major upgrade to any studio.
Universal Audio's UAD-2 cards take advantage of state-of-the-art DSP technology, adding serious horsepower to your music-production system. Each of the eight SHARC chips onboard boasts 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to the test, the power potential of even a single UAD-2 system is more than impressive. Better still, you can mix and match up to four UAD-2 PCIe cards or Satellites, allowing you to meet the processing needs of even the most demanding sessions.
Using UAD-2 OCTO's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible. That's just what you need for monitoring processed audio during the live tracking stages. On the mixing side, Universal Audio gave the UAD-2 OCTO a handy LoadLock feature. This useful tool lets you automatically reserve the maximum DSP load that each of your active UAD-2 plug-ins could ever demand, so you'll be certain you have enough DSP to engage features, such as writing automation, later.
Universal Audio's Analog Classics Plus collection starts off with three classic dynamics processors: the iconic LA-2A audio leveler, 1176LN/SE limiting amplifier, and Fairchild 670. It's almost unfair how realistic these plug-ins sound, let alone the fact that your UAD-2 card has more than enough power to run several instances of both at once. Then there's a dead-on re-creation of Pultec's legendary EQP-1A program EQ, the Pultec Pro EQ, plus the outstanding RealVerb Pro room modeler. And if that's not enough, you also get an array of top-tier plug-ins from the Precision Mix Rack Collection.
