Compatible UAD Host Applications

UAD Powered Plug-Ins are compatible with VST, RTAS, AAX 64, and Audio Units host applications, and are widely used with a variety of major DAW software — including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, Live, Sonar, and more.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs — and our own rigorous testing standards — Universal Audio only officially tests the latest UAD software with:

  • Avid Pro Tools 10 and Pro Tools 11
  • Apple Logic Pro X
  • Steinberg Cubase 7.5
  • Ableton Live 9

Note: The most recent maintenance release of the host application is recommended.

Please contact technical support for any specific questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does this mean that my DAW is not supported?

A: Generally any VST, RTAS, AAX 64, or Audio Units-compliant host application will work with UAD plug-ins, and any ASIO or Core Audio-compliant application will work with Apollo audio interfaces. That said, if you are experiencing issues with your UAD or Apollo on a DAW that we don't list as compatible, you can still contact UA Tech Support and log the issue with us. We have great relationships with all the major DAW manufacturers, and will work with them to understand why an issue is occurring — whether we list the DAW as officially compatible or not.

Q: Does UAD software work with AAX 64 or Pro Tools 11?

A: Yes. See the Pro Tools support page for the latest Pro Tools and AAX 64 information.
