Qualified UAD Host Applications
UAD Powered Plug-Ins are compatible with VST, RTAS, 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 and qualifies the latest UAD software with:
- Avid Pro Tools 10
- Apple Logic Pro 9 and Logic Pro X
- Steinberg Cubase 6.5 and Cubase 7.0.6
- Steinberg Nuendo 5.5 and Nuendo 6.0.6
- Ableton Live 8 and 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 or Audio Units-compliant host application should work with UAD plug-ins, and any ASIO or Core Audio-compliant application should work with Apollo. That said, if you are experiencing issues with your UAD or Apollo on a DAW that we don't list as "qualified," 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 "qualified" or not.
Q: Does UAD software work with AAX or Pro Tools 11?
A: See our Pro Tools support page for complete AAX information.
Q: Does UAD Powered Plug-Ins work with Steinberg Cubase 7 and Nuendo 6?
A: Yes. The latest maintenance releases of Cubase 7 (v7.0.6) and Nuendo 6 (v6.0.6) resolves the sample rate & buffer size mismatch errors that were preventing full qualification of these host applications.
