Key Info

Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack Ultimate is a 16-Channel MADI Effects Processor Interface

Realtime USB Plug-In Processing

Complete with over 90 UAD plug-ins, the UAD-2 Live Rack lets you enhance your live mix with realtime processing and the world's best analogue emulations. Exclusive titles from an array of industry-leading brands are included, with many from SSL, Studer, Neve, Manley, Lexicon, API, Fender, Moog and much more. If you are an existing UAD plug-in user you're in luck! You can use your licensed UAD plug-ins with the UAD-2 Live Rack as well. Additionally, the Antares Auto-Tune is an added extra that is included. This legendary plug-in is ideal for enhancing vocals and creative application such as realtime pitch correction and modern pop vocal effects. If 16-channels aren't enough, then you can also combine up to 4 UAD-2 Live Rack units, allowing you to use up to 64 channels of MADI signal processing via Mac Thunderbolt.

Fail-Safe Features

Reliability is something that is needed for a live sound engineer's tech, and that's exactly what the UAD-2 Live Rack incorporates. The UAD-2 Live Rack includes professional, fail-safe features for constant reliable live sound use. Conveniently, if your computer fails or its Thunderbolt cable is disconnected, or if the Live Rack app fails, then the UAD-2 Live Rack will still process audio with the last known plug-in state intact. On top of this, the UAD-2 Live Rack also features a redundant internal power supply that ensures it will continue to run and process audio if 1 power supply fails. Additionally, if the Live Rack app is put into Safe mode, then any destructive setting changes are prevented during a live show.

Live Rack Application

With the Live Rack app you can utilise intuitive features such as drag and drop, copy and paste, keyboard navigation, plug-in zoom, and the ability to save and recall your channel strip presets and/or complete setup configuration snapshots, which make it ideal for sound engineers that work constantly with multiple bands. This means you can bring up the perfect mix for the band in no time.
