Product Description

The Single Most Powerful Multi-DAW Plug-Ins Card

UAD-1-Your Key to a New World of Processing and Effects
The UAD-1 is a must have for those looking to take their Mac or PC-based digital audio workstation to the next level of performance and sound quality. Thanks to a high-headroom, custom-built processor specifically designed for DSP, it enables near-virtual digital replicas of Universal Audio's vintage analog classics such as the Teletronix, LA-2A, and the infamous 1176LN. And because it works seamlessly within a number of VST and MAS compatible host applications, you don't need to learn an entire new program to benefit from its power and flexibility.

What's Included
Every UAD-1 package arrives complete with the UAD-1 DSP card and a comprehensive package of ultra high quality plug-ins, including RealVerb Pro, the 1176LN and Teletronix LA-2A Vintage Compressors, the Nigel Guitar Processor, and the CS-1 Channel Strip, all of which were developed by Universal Audio. The CS-1 is comprised of plug-ins developed specifically for the UAD-1, including EQ, compression, delay modulation, and reflection engine modules. Nigel is also a suite of plug-ins, including the Pre-flex amp and speaker cabinet modeler, Echo, Delay Modulation, Tremolo, Modulation Filter, Compressor/Gate and Phasor. As with the CS-1, these components can be used together or separately.

Features:
Bus mastering DMA for zero host load and maximum transfer rate

Fully PCI 2.1 compliant, supports 66MHz and fast bus timing

7 in. form factor (PCI short card)

Compatible with the Magma PCI Expansion Chassis

Single unpartitioned super-computer DSP Chip

More DSP headroom per plug-in than other multi-chip DSP cards

Supported sampling Rates from 32 kHz - 192 kHz

What's New with UAD-1:

Cambridge EQ Plug-In
Cambridge EQ is a five-band, fully parametric EQ, featuring high and low cuts with a wide variety of filter types and curves. It also utilizes high-precision filter structures and proprietary algorithms to achieve a warm analog sound.

Features:
You can use each individual band as a fully parametric EQ, or you can switch between 3 different types of shelving EQ with adjustable transition-band resonances.

The high- and low-pass filters each provide 17 different filter types with adjustable slopes up to 36dB/octave.

Enable or disable each EQ band and filter to independently conserve DSP resources.

A large, zoomable graphic display plots the plug-ins' actual frequency responses, and also allows editing of the responses on screen.

Like every UAD-1 plug-in, all parameters are fully smoothed at audio rate for zipper- and distortion-free automation and editing.

Updated Software -- Version 3.1
New UAD-1 Version 3.1 software builds upon the success of the Version 3.0 software. Together, the software upgrades give the UAD-1:

Multi-card support for both Mac and PC platforms. You can now add multiple UAD-1 cards in a single computer for added power and plug-in functionality.

DirectX support for Cakewalk SONAR, Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro, Magix Samplitude and Sonic Foundry Sound Forge.

Enhancements to existing plug-ins through several new features including:
Text entry for parameter editing

Adjustable CPU load limiting to eliminate system overloads

Selectable mouse control modes

A set of mono-only plug-ins (primarily for Emagic Logic Audio users)

Optimized LA2A

Cambridge EQ Demo Version.

1176 SE plug-in - New low DSP use compressor.

Included UAD-1 Plug-Ins

1176SE
The 1176SE is derived from the 1176LN. Its algorithm has been revised in order to provide sonic characteristics similar to the 1176LN but with significantly less DSP usage. It is provided to allow "1176LN-like sound" when DSP resources are limited.

The 1176SE behavior is practically identical to the 1176LN. Its sound is nearly identical too, but certain compromises had to be made in order to squeeze the extra DSP performance that the 1176SE provides. At nominal settings the sonic difference is negligible. At extreme (cranked) settings, nobody with "golden ears" will say it sounds exactly like the 1176LN, but it stills sounds great and is very usable in most situations.

Kind of Loud Technologies RealVerb Pro
What if you could put your sound right in the perfectly designed room? Based on our own unique set of algorithms, the world-class RealVerb Pro plug-in lets you design the room just as you hear it. Get beyond the barriers of simply big and small, dark or bright. RealVerb Pro gives you our trademark, distortion-free, smoothing diffusion control and ultra-long reverb tail. Driven by the processing power of the UAD-1, RealVerb Pro can run eight instances simultaneously, with ease. RealVerb Pro is the most flexible and natural sounding reverb plug-in in the industry.

Features:
Custom Room Shape Settings

Adjustable Settings for Wall Material

Select from a Graphic Menu of Room Shapes

Adjust Room Size from 1-99 Meters

Blend Between Room Shapes and Sizes in Real time

Adjust Relative Thickness of Materials

Control Intensity & Timing of Early Reflections and Late-Field Reverberation

Morphing Capabilities Between Different Presets

Comprehensive Interface for In-depth Parameters Editing

The 1176LN
Limiting Amplifier
The reputation of this analog classic is well known throughout the audio industry. Originally designed and built during the 1960's, the 1176LN was the first to use a field effect transistor (FET) as a voltage-controlled variable resistor, and that innovation was the key to the product's unique character. An in-depth analysis of the 1176LN's "personality" allowed Universal Audio to methodically reproduce those results within a plug-in architecture, and now offer that same character to computer-based audio workstations.

Features:
Ultra-fast attack time

Unique, analog-friendly, "warm" characteristics

FET Gain Reduction Emulation

Supports the popular "All Buttons Mode", just like the original

Input & Output Gain Adjustment Knobs w/adjustable Attack and Release Settings

Adjustable Program-Dependent Compression Behavior

Custom Output Transformer Emulation design

Mono or Stereo Operation

Full automation capabilities

Flexible VU metering modes

Detailed, precise screen shot provides a realistic analog look and feel

The Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier
The Teletronix LA-2A leveling amplifier is practically the definition of vintage audio gear. The original opto-electrical attenuator circuit is responsible for the incredibly rich and magic sound embracing the tracks of so many classic recordings in circulation today. In an effort to bring this product and its character into the world of DAWs, Universal Audio studied not just the sound, but how each and every component interacted and behaved under a full range of studio conditions. The word, "emulation", hardly does this plug-in justice. It is in fact a digital copy of the LA-2A, and upholds all the classic, analog characteristics of the original with unprecedented clarity and sound quality.

Features:
Identical look, controls, and operation of its analog cousin

Lag-free, Distortion-Free Optical Attenuator Emulation

Frequency-Dependent Compression Behavior

Input Gain and Peak Reduction Adjustment Knobs

Limit/Compress Function Switch

+4, -10, or Gain Reduction Metering

Full automation capabilities

Mono or Stereo Operation

CS-1 Channel Strip
The CS-1 Channel Strip provides all the tools you need for recording and mixing in one simple plug-in (using only one insert!) With a unique smoothing algorithm for all controls and DSP conserving bypass switches built-in, The CS-1 packs a whopping punch into a small package. Included in the CS-1 are the EX-1 EQ/Compressor, the DM-1 Delay Modulator, and the unique RS-1 Reflection Engine. Of course, if you don't need all that power, you can use each module within the CS-1 separately. Use as much or as little as desired for your particular needs.

The EX-1 Includes:
5 Full Parametric Bands w/Bypass Switch

Hi & Lo Shelving

Peak/Notch or High/Low Pass Settings

Ultra-Smooth Compression (based on the UA Classics)

The DM-1 Includes:
Chorus, Flange, Dual Delay, and Ping Pong Effects

Multi-Phase Sine & Triangle Modulators

Global Rate & Depth Settings

Re-circulation and Delay-Line Damping

The RS-1 Includes:
Multiple Room Shapes

Adjustable Room Size from One to 99 meters

Forward and Reverse Gates

Echo, Ping-pong, and Multi-Tap Delay Effect

Nigel

Utilizing Universal Audio's exclusive component modeling technology and intuitive design, Nigel delivers a complete pallet of guitar tones along with most every effect a guitar player might need, all with minimal latency and no load on your host computer's CPU. In addition, Nigel's Preflex advanced guitar amp modeling technology goes well beyond the usual pre-amp/amp/cabinet emulators. In addition to delivering a wide range of highly playable classic amp tones from the "Clean & Warm" California tube sound to more metal soaked "British" tones, a bevy of original timbres simply not possible on any other guitar system can be realized. Preflex also offers variable morphing between any two amp presets, truly bringing creative guitar voicing to the next level

Legendary Pultec Program EQ
The Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer plug-in (included in Version 2.2.2) is a faithful electronic reproduction of the classic hardware equalizer. The Pultec EQ has long been a choice of recording and mastering engineers for its ability to bring out individual frequency ranges without significantly altering other frequencies. In addition, the Pultec is one of those magical pieces of gear that makes audio sound better - just by passing through it. The sophisticated modeling technology used in the Pultec EQP-1A plug-in captures both of these key characteristics.

Features:
Legendary Pultec Program EQ

Unique simultaneous boost and cut

Smooth, sweet top end

Dial in dangerous amounts of boost with incredibly musical results

Modeled after a highly prized "golden" Pultec
