Universal Audio have a good thing going on with the very well-respected UAD-2 platform, and the latest hardware addition to the family - the UAD-2 Satellite - made its European debut at the show. And a handsome beast it is too - probably going to be very popular as so many people are working mobile on a laptop platform now.
Also showing was the new UAD Software v5.9.0 release which debuts two Plugins from developers outside Universal Audio for the first time.
"With the opening of the UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform to select Direct Developers, we wanted to start with partners that would deliver exceptional results. That meant turning to our friends at SPL and Brainworx," commented Matt Ward, president of UniversalAudio. "The SPL Vitalizer and the Brainworx bx_digital V2 have already proven themselves as standout mixing tools on Mac and PC. Now they are available to UAD-2 DSP Accelerator owners, offering a way to offload processing power for running more tracks and virtual instruments on the host computer."
The new software will also feature the legendary Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb emulation, as well as improvements for UAD-2 Satellite users.
