Universal Audio UAD-2 Quad Omni
DSP Accelerator Card


The UAD-2 Duo Omni Pak combines Universal Audio’s revolutionary new DSP acceleration hardware with all the available UA Powered Plug-Ins—up to and including those in UAD Software version 5.1—a total of 34 world class plug-ins! UA's Powered Plug-In library brings the most sonically revered studio processors from the past 50 years of audio to your DAW, including vintage equalizers and compressors, superior precision mastering tools, special processing, lush reverbs, and the most accurate, officially licensed hardware emulations from Neve, Roland, Boss, SPL, Moog, and more.

Use the included UAD$50 plug-in voucher at the UA online store 24/7 to select from UA’s latest plug-ins (new titles are typically available every quarter). Preview the latest plug-ins via fully functional 14-day demos. Audition each one to hear how it works for your music and buy the plug-ins you really want.

At the heart of the UAD-2 Quad are 4 cutting-edge SHARC® 21369 floating-point processors which allows for larger and more sophisticated processing algorithms, and a level of power and complexity not found with host-based plug-ins. By reducing the burden on your computer’s CPU, your host application can now deliver more tracks, automation, virtual instruments and native effects.

All UAD-2’s feature the completely re-designed v5 software with a myriad of new performance and convenience enhancing features like LODE (Live Optimizing DSP Engine) which intelligently balances resources for maximum plug-in count, LiveTrack( low-latency mode) making it possible to monitor instruments through Powered Plug-Ins, and improved RTAS/Protool LE support including automated-delay compensation via Mellowmuse’s ATA (a $49 value, free for all UAD-2 users). The all-new unified Meter & Control Panel for UAD-1 and UAD-2 improves and streamlines Status Monitoring, Plug Purchasing, Help & Support and Software Updates. Also new for UAD-2 is the UA website which has been completely redesigned with integrated A/V Demo’s, tutorials, in-depth webzine articles, FAQ’s and enhanced support so you can really get the most out of your UAD-2.
