Matt Ward, president of Universal Audio, told Sonic State, "With the opening of the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform to select Direct Developers, we wanted to start with partners that would deliver exceptional results. That meant turning to our friends at SPL and Brainworx. The SPL Vitalizer and the Brainworx bx_digital V2 have already proven themselves as standout mixing tools on Mac and PC. Now they are available to UAD-2 DSP Accelerator owners, offering a way to offload processing power for running more tracks and virtual instruments on the host computer."
Dirk Ulrich, CEO of Brainworx and head of SPL Software, added, "We're extremely pleased to see the new UAD software version being released and featuring our first SPL & BX plug-ins for the UAD-2 community. We spent many months developing the SDK with UA, and it´s been a lot of work and a lot of fun at the same time. Now it´s time for UAD-2 users to rock the new SPL & BX tools UA is offering them with this new release. Enjoy!"
Here's what UA has to say about the two new plug-ins:
These new UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins are noteworthy both in their unique sonic capabilities, as well as their being developed in their entirety for the UAD-2 platform by the software engineers at SPL and Brainworx -- two of the audio industry's most respected brands -- as part of a new UAD-2 SDK (software development kit).
