Universal Audio UAD-2 Solo/Laptop DSP Accelerator Card – No Longer Available

The Fast, Easy Way to Step Up to UAD Powered Plug-Ins on Your Laptop - includes Analog Classics Software Bundle

Product Description

The Universal Audio UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop is the must-have sonic upgrade for recording and mixing with authentic analog sound quality on a laptop. This ExpressCard-based DSP accelerator package includes several of Universal Audio’s most popular “analog classic” plug-ins — the LA-2A and 1176 Compressor/Limiters, and the Pultec EQ — and provides a significant processing boost for those who mix music on Mac or PC laptops, thanks to its onboard SHARC processor. Better still, it gives users access to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library, including some of the best-reviewed plug-ins of all time.

Specifically, the UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop provides access to popular UAD plug-in titles from Manley, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, BOSS, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix and more (sold separately), from any ExpressCard-equipped Mac or PC. Whether you use Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer or Pro Tools, these UAD-2 plug-ins can inject the character and quality of classic hardware into your mixes, while freeing up your laptop’s internal processor for other mixing duties. Put simply, the UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop is like having a rack full of vintage analog gear in your pocket.

Mac- and Windows-compatible, with support for VST, Audio Units and RTAS, the UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop is easy to use. Just install the software, plug it in, and start mixing. Thanks to its Analog Devices SHARC processor, and simple ExpressCard format, no cables or external power supply are required. Just plug and play.

Developed by the industry’s finest engineering team, and backed by frequent new software and plug-in releases, the UAD-2 is the processing platform of choice for many of the world's top musicians, producers and engineers.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
