UAD Powered Plug-Ins are widely regarded as the world’s leading analog hardware emulation plug-ins for Mac and PC. These award-winning plug-ins require UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware or the Apollo High-Resolution Audio Interface. To learn more about UAD/Apollo hardware, click here.
Note that all UAD plug-ins include a fully functional 14-day demo period. During or after the demo period, UAD plug-ins can be purchased individually in our online store. If you're looking for previous versions of UAD software, click here. You can visit our UAD Support pages here.
In 2001, UA set the standard for analog emulation with the original LA-2A electro-optical compressor plug-in. Today, advances in processing power and our own analog emulation experience have enabled us to redesign the LA-2A plug-ins with luxurious, obsessive detail. The new LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection painstakingly models the entire electronic path of three rare Teletronix units — “Silver,” “Gray,” and the original LA-2 unit. With all the transformer and tube goodness now onboard, these are must-have emulations of this iconic compressor — especially for tracking and mixing vocals.
Based on two of the world's most popular EQ modules — ideal for mixing guitars and drums — the API 500 Series EQ Collection serves up unsurpassed plug-in emulations of the iconic API 550A and 560 EQ modules. Meticulously modeled on pristine early-1970s units provided to Universal Audio by Ross Hogarth and Capitol Studios, this collection unerringly delivers API’s legendary filter coloration, low-frequency transparency, and ultra-tight imaging — with all the flavor and character of their hardware counterparts.
Developed by the highly regarded modeling engineers at Softube, Amp Room plug-ins bring a "less is more" collection of modern and vintage guitar and bass tones to your studio. Comprised of Vintage Amp Room, Bass Amp Room, and Metal Amp Room, this killer suite lets you track with inspiring tones in real time with the Apollo audio interface. Or mix / re-amp your tracks with any UAD-2 DSP Accelerator. Amp Room titles let you intuitively “click-and-drag” to audition amps, cabs, and even change mic position via a 3D interface – creating custom tones like a studio pro. Sold separately and as a bundle.
