WNAMM07: UAD-1 Upgraded


At the show Universal Audio has announced the release of v4.5.1 software which is a preview (public beta) release focused on 64-bit driver support for Microsoft Windows XP X64 and the forthcoming new Microsoft operating system, Windows Vista.
Mike Barnes, VP of Marketing for Universal Audio Inc told us, "With the imminent arrival of Windows Vista on January 30th, UA is making a preview release to our UAD users as the industry moves towards 64-bit drivers and operating systems. This first preliminary release allows our cutting-edge power-users to make the transition early, but as Vista gains momentum and is bundled in OEM PC's starting in February and March 2007, we have planned formal Windows Vista certification in our next release, v4.6 which is scheduled to ship along with a brand new UAD plug-in during late Q1 2007." Key Features Include:
  • Windows XP Professional X64 Support
  • Preliminary Windows Vista Support
  • Improved Stability on Mac PowerPC/Intel platforms
Pricing and Availability:
Version v4.5.1 is available as a free download for UAD customers at the UA website
