Universal Audio Ships UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators

Allows professional producers and engineers to accelerate their Windows-based workstations and run larger mixes with DSP-intensive plugins.

Universal Audio announces that the new line of UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators is now available worldwide.

UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators allow professional producers and engineers to supercharge their Windows-based workstations and run larger mixes filled with DSP-intensive plugins. These desktop-friendly units provide full access to UAD Powered Plugins, including exclusive plugins from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, SSL, and more.

Available in QUAD or OCTO models with a choice of four or eight SHARC processors, UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators can also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe cards, UAD-2 Satellite FireWire, and the Apollo Twin USB desktop interface.

UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators are available in Core, Custom, and Ultimate software packages. The Core package includes the Analog Classics Plus plugin bundle, while Custom adds a choice of any three additional UAD plugins at registration.
