The UAD-2 OCTO Core DSP Accelerator is Universal Audio's most powerful PCIe processing card, giving audio producers and engineers massive power for running award-winning UAD plug-ins on Mac or PC. In creating UAD plug-ins, UA's DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers - using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears - to create fully authenticated plug-ins with all the warmth and harmonics of classic analog recording equipment. The UAD-2 OCTO Core features eight SHARC processors and is compatible with VST/AU/RTAS and AAX 64 and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped desktop computer or compatible expansion chassis (PCIe or Thunderbolt ), giving your workstation a significant boost in audio quality and mix processing power.
