Universal Audio becomes RTAS plug-in developer for Avid Pro Tools 05/11/10
Here's the press release...
In a move designed to expand
the power and flexibility of its popular UAD Powered Plug-Ins
platform, Universal Audio (UA) today announced that it is an Avid®
RTAS® developer, and that the UAD-2 platform is now compatible with
Avid's family of Pro Tools® music creation and audio production
"Pro Tools has been the hands-down industry leader in audio production
for more than a decade," commented Universal Audio Inc founder and
Chairman Bill Putnam Jr. "We're extremely pleased to have reached an
agreement in which UAD plug-ins will integrate with a full range of
Pro Tools software and hardware systems, including the newly announced
version of Pro Tools, as well as Pro Tools|HD Native."
While a significant percentage of the 40,000 UAD Powered Plug-In users
worldwide are already using Pro Tools solutions, with this agreement,
these users will be assured of an improved workflow in the future.
In particular, by combining the new Pro Tools|HD Native PCIe card and
UAD-2 DSP Accelerator PCIe cards, Pro Tools|HD Native users can have
the best of both worlds: an industry leading digital editing and
mixing platform working on the power of the host CPU, and a library of
classic analog emulation plug-ins developed in partnership with Neve,
Manley, Roland, Empirical Labs, Fairchild, Pultec, Teletronix, dbx,
Studer, Lexicon and more.
Ed Gray, director of Partnering Programs for Avid, said: "Universal
Audio is one of the most innovative and admired companies in the audio
space. The combination of Pro Tools and the UAD platform will provide
our customers with even more options to create signature sounds with
analog warmth, regardless of which Pro Tools system they are working
on." More information:
