Conclusion
The quality of the UAD-1's vintage analogue simulations is its real selling point. These put sought after studio and mastering tools within the reach of many more users and the card is to be commended for this alone. The cost in latency seems a small price to pay, given the improvement to tonal quality that may be achieved.

Alternatives
TC Powercore offers another respected DSP-based plug-in accelerator card. Their reverb is particularly highly rated. See our previous reveiw
