UAD-2 OCTO Core DSP Accelerator USB

Get the rich analog sound of UAD Powered Plug-Ins over USB 3 on Windows.
The UAD-2 Satellite USB OCTO Core is a DSP accelerator, giving producers and engineers access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins. This sleek desktop unit will supercharge your Windows-based workstation to run larger mixes filled with rich analog emulation plug-ins.

In creating UAD plug-ins, Universal Audio's DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers -- using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears -- to give you all the warmth of classic analog equipment. The UAD-2 Satellite USB OCTO Core includes eight SHARC processors, and its USB 3 SuperSpeed technology offers reduced plug-in latency compared to FireWire 800.

The UAD-2 Satellite USB OCTO Core includes UA's Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle and provides access to more than 90 plug-ins from brands including Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Neve, Fairchild, Pultec, Studer, SSL, and more (sold separately).

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
