WNAMM09: Powered Plug-Ins For Laptops


Universal Audio has announced the creation of the UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop, a compact ExpressCard version of their successful UAD-2 SOLO DSP Accelerator card. The new SOLO/Laptop DSP card brings Universal Audio's world-class analog emulations–authenticated by Neve, Roland, SPL, Moog, and more–to laptop DAW users. UA say that the UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop enables large, professional mixes on laptop DAWs without the need for cabling or power supply. The UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop supports VST, AU and RTAS plug in formats on both MAC and PC.
The SOLO/Laptop includes studio staples like UA's 1176SE Compressor/Limiter, Pultec EQP-1A Equalizer, RealVerb Pro Room Modeler, and CS-1 Channel Strip, and offers access to the entire Powered Plug-In library.
What UA say about the UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card...
