For over two decades, Universal Audio has been delivering top-notch audio equipment and plug-ins to professional studios and musicians around the world. The UAD platform, a combination of powerful hardware processors and sophisticated software plug-ins, has become an industry standard for sound engineers and producers in various fields, from music to film.

Today, UA announced new native versions of the brand’s best-selling UAD Plug-Ins, making their award-winning sound processing tools more accessible and versatile than ever. Get your hands on the world's finest analog emulation plugins of classic gear from renowned brands like API, Moog, Studer, Lexicon, and more, all without the need for dedicated hardware. 

Best of all, you can purchase UAD Native plug-ins individually or as a part of three new bundles, making them a simple, flexible, and cost-effective solution for users who want to add the Universal Audio sound to their workflow.

Already a UAD user? Don’t worry—all of your existing plug-ins will still work exactly the same. As a matter of fact, Apollo and UAD hardware owners that have already purchased DSP-based plug-ins now available natively will receive the native version of the same plug-in for free.
