UAD-2 Satellite DUO DSP Accelerator (FireWire)Serious analog sound for MacBooks, iMacs, and Windows 7 PCs.
A simple FireWire connection is all it takes to plug your Intel-based Mac or Windows 7 PC* into the world’s finest analog hardware emulations.
The UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators offer full access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins, including exclusive titles from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL and more.
UAD-2 Satellite packages feature a sleek, ultra-portable FireWire 800/400-based processing unit, plus the “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle (VST/AU/RTAS), giving you massive analog character, right out of the box.UAD-2: The industry’s most respected collection of audio plug-ins.
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have been winning over audio professionals for more than 10 years.
The reason is simple. No other plug-ins so faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment — from rare compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines.
The award-winning UAD library features over 90 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. Workhorse DUO processing power, wherever you go.
UAD-2 Satellite DSP DUO Accelerator: with two individual Analog Devices SHARC processors.
This outboard processing can provide a big mixing horsepower “boost” for your host computer — letting you run larger mixes, filled with rich, sonically complex plug-ins — no matter what the rest of your system is doing.
The UAD-2 Satellite can be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards and the UAD Apollo interface, for truly scalable mixing power.
And because it’s portable, the UAD-2 Satellite lets you travel with your UAD plug-ins, wherever you mix on an Intel-based Mac or select Windows 7 PC* with an available FireWire port.UAD plug-in craftsmanship: The science behind the scenes.
Most people don’t immediately think of audio software when they hear the word “craftsmanship.” But that’s what separates UAD plug-ins from the rest.
One of the most common responses we hear from UAD users is, “Wow, I didn’t know plug-ins could sound this good.”
That’s because in developing UAD-2 plug-ins, UA’s engineering group undertakes a thorough physical modeling of classic audio hardware.
This process means that we essentially “rebuild” vintage analog gear in the digital world, component by component.
It’s how UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware — bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics "in the box."The Core package includes the Analog Classics plug-in bundle
The Analog Classics plug-in bundle features legendary compressors like the Teletronix LA-2A Legacy and classic EQs such as the Pultec EQP-1A Legacy, and a versatile channel strip and reverb to get your tracks and mixes in shape, fast.
The Analog Classics Bundle is included free with the UAD-2 PCIe SOLO/DUO Core, and the UAD-2 Satellite DUO Core.1176SE/LN Classic Limiting Amplifiers (Legacy)
Get classic, ultra-fast FET compression from the world’s most recognized compressor.
The 1176 will impart punch, presence, and character as well as its signature distortion overtones on drums, vocals, guitars, and bass.
The 1176SE and its later LN version have graced countless recordings, from Led Zeppelin, the White Stripes, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.Pultec Pro Equalizers (Legacy)
Universal Audio’s Pultec Pro Legacy plug-in combines the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, two of the most sought-after hardware EQs, into a single plug-in.
The MEQ-5 EQ section allows you to boost and cut midrange bands with the same silky smoothness and personality of the original hardware while the EQP-1A imparts warm analog character to a single track or an entire mix — even when bypassed.Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveling Amplifier (Legacy)
With its gentle, program dependent optical compression and meticulously designed tube amplifier, the LA-2A is the go-to compressor for professional mixers around the world — especially for vocals.
Incredibly easy-to-use Peak Reduction and Gain controls give you the ideal optical compression sound for vocals, bass, drums, and more.CS-1 Precision Channel
Featuring the EX-1 EQ/Compressor, the DM-1 and DL-1L Delay Modulators, and the RS-1 Reflection Engine, the CS-1 Precision Channel provides all the tools you need for recording and mixing in one simple plug-in.
With a unique smoothing algorithm for all controls and DSP conserving bypass switches built-in, the CS-1 packs a whopping punch into a small package.RealVerb Pro
RealVerb Pro is a flexible, natural sounding reverb that is based on our own unique set of algorithms.
Allowing you to design the room just as you hear it, the RealVerb Pro goes beyond the barriers of simply big/small or dark/bright, giving you our trademark, distortion-free, smoothing diffusion control and an ultra-long reverb tail.
