Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO Custom Product Description

Hot-rod your DAW with a Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO Custom system! This UAD-2 Satellite DUO delivers the performance and flexibility of UA's wildly successful UAD-2 DSP-powered plug-ins plus the convenience of FireWire. With a UAD-2 Satellite DUO, you'll have the ability to run high-track count sessions loaded with some of the best sounding plug-ins that money can buy - sessions that require processing power far beyond the capacity of your computer's CPU alone. What's more, this system lets you pick out any three UAD-powered plug-ins in addition to the complete Analog Classics collection, so you're ready to take full advantage of your Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite DUO Custom, right out of the box.

Experience the power of SHARC chip technology
Universal Audio's UAD-2 Satellite systems take advantage of state-of-the-art DSP technology, adding serious horsepower to your music-production system. Both of the SHARC chips onboard boast 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to the test, the power potential of even a single UAD-2 system is more than impressive. Better still, you can mix and match up to four UAD-2 PCIe cards or Satellites, allowing you to meet the processing needs of even the most demanding sessions.

Flexible operation modes for tracking and mixing
Using UAD-2 Satellite DUO's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible. That's just what you need for monitoring processed audio during the live tracking stages. On the mixing side, Universal Audio gave the UAD-2 Satellite DUO a handy LoadLock feature. This useful tool lets you automatically reserve the maximum DSP load that each of your active UAD-2 plug-ins could ever demand, so you'll be certain you have enough DSP to engage features, such as writing automation, later.

Custom bundle lets you load up on UAD-powered plug-ins
Have it your way - with the UAD-2 Satellite DUO Custom system, you get your pick of any three UAD-powered plug-ins on the market. That's right. You just go to the UAD Store (the same place you can pick up additional plug-ins a la carte), pick out any three plug-ins you like, and you're all set. On top of that, the UAD-2 Satellite DUO Custom system also includes the Universal Audio Analog Classics collection of five amazing UAD-powered plug-ins, which includes such classic processors as the UA LA-2A audio leveler Pultec EQP-1A program EQ, and RealVerb Pro room modeler.
