FireWire 800/400 DSP Accelerators provide Plug-and-Play access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins 25/02/11
Universal Audio (UA) have announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD
FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized
dealers worldwide. Here's what they have to say...
As the newest members of UA's award-winning UAD-2
Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP
acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of FireWire 800/400 --
perfect for Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis.
For the first time, the UAD-2 Satellites put the entire UAD Powered
Plug-Ins library --including the popular Studer A800 Multichannel Tape
Recorder, and SSL E & G Series plug-ins -- within easy reach of select
iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis; no PCIe or ExpressCard required.
Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four
Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite
packages provide a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins,
along with a processing "boost" for digital audio workstations.
"UAD-2 Satellite is the result of UA listening to our customers, and
giving them a processing solution that is both elegant and powerful,"
added UA Senior Product Manager Lev Perrey. "Coupled with our roadmap
of exciting new plug-ins, we anticipate this product expanding our
40,000-strong UAD user base significantly in the years to come."
