UAD: The Industry's Most Respected
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins are integral tools for audio professionals. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment - whether it's boutique compressors and EQs, or vintage reverbs and tape machines.
The UAD library features over 90 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled packages, la carte from
UA's Online Store.
Expandable processing power, from QUAD to OCTO
UAD-2 Satellite USB is available in QUAD or OCTO models with either four or eight SHARC processors, respectively. It can also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards, UAD-2 Satellite FireWire, and Apollo Twin USB desktop interface for truly scalable mixing power.

Unlock some serious DSP
Works very well. I have a lot more freedom to use UAD plugins in my mixes, whereas without it, I found myself compromising and using a lot of stock or third party plugins that relied on my now aging computer. The only downside is that it does not increase the amount of plugins/DSP in Console for tracking or monitoring. Read more
I was hoping to get some 1073s on my toms as well, but ny overheads, kick and snare eat up most of the DSP.
