Review of my new solo dsp

I would say that it is perfect for any musician . All plugins are awesome and I think the 1176 is the best compressor that I've ever used .....
Thx guys .

Bought my 3rd card.

It was the offer of the channel strip and then the $299 coupon that swung it. The Never 88rs and Studer A800 are making huge differences to my mixes!

Flawless integration on workflow!

I'm really impressed regarding the straightforward process to install and integrate the UAD2 card on my workflow. I'm also really impressed of the quality level of analog classic bundle, I've expecting something less, but it's is really usable!

I waited far too long...

I've also kept up with UAD and used the plugins numerous times. Im a Waves user too, but I felt like I was missing the party.

I finally plunged and got the solo - to get my feet wet.

I love it!!! I'm not saving to ad a Duo to my machine. I can se ost if not all of the free plugins and the ones I've purchased being my go to plugins for many functions.

Great products - Disappointed with expiration date.

As always. I am a really big fan of the UAD plug-in products but I am surprised how short the life of the 50.00 coupon is. You need to extend.

Let's not pull any punches here. This is a little bad boy DSP processor. I replaced my 1E with it and it out pro-forms it. Sweet like candy. For the price it's the best way to get onto the platform. Expansion has been made so easy due to the fab drivers just keep adding cards. To keep it real, everyone who's anyone and no ones use these cards. It's a must.

In this age of powerful computers with Quad processors and a jillion cores in your CPU, why buy extra hardware cards to process audio?

That's the question I asked myself when I was considering buying UAD cards. But after researching all the possibilities, and going on the forums and seeing how good the support from the company was (very important to me!), I took the plunge.

I liked the results so much that I bought a second UAD-2 card. The sounds are just so darned good, and the processing cards lets my Mac use all its power for Logic and any native AU plugins I'm using.

The UAD plugins work as advertised, and any time I had questions the tech support was immediate. That's the second time I've mentioned support, because I feel it's SUPER important when dealing with high end cutting edge stuff like audio recording. And software updates are regular, free, and smush any bugs.

Basically, I feel very well taken care of and I feel like this company really understands musicians. Yeah, the stuff is a little pricey, but I'm happy to pay it since it works right the first time and every time. That alone is worth the price.

I'm so glad I spent the money on this instead of the Waves plugins -- so many problems with those and vastly overpriced. (I know some people run both, but I'm an a limited budget). On a limited budget, every dollar counts -- and my UAD dollars are very cost effective.

I don't mean to ignore the most important thing of all -- awesome sounds!

unfortunately nothing new as I have traded in from a uad 1 (an undesired purchase) and also waited more than one month after purchase with no communication from the retailer...

The results speak for themselves

If you've only used a computer to record music, then welcome to the world of real sounding audio equipment. where equalizers work as they should and you can get accurate bass/treble/highs.

One of the problems with digital, it that EQ's and digital frequency based
plug-in just don't work very well, just try pumping up the bass on a digital eq,
it's sounds thin and wrong.

The UAD-2 plugins give you accurate analog equipment, that does
the job and sounds great.

UAD-2 Solo is great!

The UAD-2 Solo has enough power for my small home studio. The installation was easy and the card runs perfectly under Windows 8.1. The plugins are loaded quickly and the included plugins are of very high quality. I am very satisfied with the purchase and can highly recommend the UAD-2 Solo.

Well designed, easy to use, runs well

I've been using the UAD-2 Solo for two weeks now and it works fine. Everything runs smooth and the install documentation was easy to understand. Hope, it continues like this. Thanks!

Shame I had to do it!

UAD2 was bought simply to continue using the plugins I'd already bought and was happily using on UAD1. The pci slot in my new mac wouldn't fit the older card. Anyhow, all working fine. Also, a shame that the Fairchild and LA2A purchases are now 'legacy' versions. I'm not automatically entitled to the newer updates of these plugins, which are now re-designed etc. So, £250 to stay with what I already owned. They are great plugins, though, and when I can afford 'Fatso' it will be mine cos that wouldn't have run on UAD1.
