Turbo Charged UAD-2 Octo Has 8 Sharcs

New plug-in bundles too      01/10/12

Universal Audio's UAD2  DSP accelerated plug-ins have found favour with mix engineers the world over, with the UAD2 range of PCi cards and Satellite (firewire) and of course the Apollo combined DSP and sound card unit (see our review) there's plenty to choose from with up to Four Sharc DSP chips on board.

However, Universal Audio have just announced the new UAD-2 Octo platform which takes the DSP count up to 8 on a single PCI-e card.

Lots of power to run high plug-in counts and high sample rates. There's also some new plug-in bundles available too - The Custom with three plug-ins of your choice and Ultimate -for the man (or woman) who wants everything.

New OCTO DSP Accelerators — Heavyweight Processing Power
The new top-of-the-line UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator ($1,499US) features eight SHARC processors on a single PCIe card and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped Mac or PC workstation or compatible expansion chassis — giving music producers and engineers twice the processing power of its UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator counterpart. For UAD power users running large audio sessions with high UAD plug-in instances and/or high sample rates, the UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator is the uncompromising professional solution.
