The Universal Audio UAD-2 QUAD Custom DSP Accelerator Card is Universal Audio's most powerful and flexible processing hardware, giving producers and engineers full 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.
The UAD-2 QUAD Custom with its four SHARC processors, 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.
