Best Emulations of Analogue Equipment

UAD-2 plug-ins are considered some of the best in the industry and with good reason. When it comes to creating analogue emulations, Universal Audio engineers work in close collaboration with the original hardware manufacturers, using their schematics, best-sounding units and experience to recreate the exact tone warmth of the hardware unit.

Using thorough physical modelling of the best audio hardware, Universal Audio recreates the exact behaviour of analogue hardware including little quirks that give these units their personality. 

Fully Mac- and Windows-compatible, with support for VST, Audio Units, AAX and RTAS, the UAD-2 OCTO Core is easy to use. Just install the software, install the PCIe card, and start mixing with some of the world’s finest audio plug-ins.

*Purchasers must select all 3 individual Custom Software Bundle plug-ins simultaneously, within 45 days of product registration. Purchasers failing to select all 3 plug-ins within 45 days of registration will automatically receive 3 UAD plug-ins of UA's choosing, free of charge (but no more than 3 Custom Software Bundle plug-ins total).
