Doesn't work. I am in between a Rock and a Hard Place.

Unfortunately, I can't get the device to work. The software appears not to have been updated and, as such, will only run on one particular generation of Apple MacOS. Connectivity may also be an issue. It is specified as Thunderbolt 3. So, my only available option is to purchase a second hand 2017 Apple Mac with thunderbolt 3 ports and this in itself is a problem as 2017 Apple Macs with thunderbolt ports also have a known video issue which, I have found from experience, is extremely expensive to repair.

UAD Live Rack - WTF Happened

Looking at this Live Rack for a few years, exactly what I needed. Bought the Rack "Brand New", found out it was unsupported, sent it straight back. Very Disappointed.

I sent four of these racks back quite quickly...

These racks are not future proof unless UAD updates the software to be able to work with chip-based Macs. The work-around does not work on the M1 computers.

Discontinuing this product is a huge failure for UA

Abandoning the live industry is a terrible decision. As live mixers, we longed for this product. It has been an absolute game changer for live engineers. Sonically it’s far superior to anything else out there. But discontinuing updates, manufacturing, etc. is a huge failure on your part. Makes me rethink a lot of decisions I will make for my studio and how I will go forward with hardware and software there too.

This is a really stupid move

Thanks for alienating live engineers from your platform. This was and could’ve been and continued to be the best live plug in format available

This thing could be such an awesome product line but it’s under powered and under developed. Come on UAD. Professionals want this to not suck

LIVE RACK UPDATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love UAD Products - but UAD ignores the Users of the Live Rack... NO UPDATES for a long time and i cannot use more than 4 Autotunes at the same time... Not enough power to use more??? Thats a shame for so much money... Time to change!??? Waves?
I'm really disappointed...

No updates

After having purchased two of these units, I am really disappointed this platform does not get any latest updates of the plugins and Mac OS. It does not support the latest MacOS which is very disappointing.

We need updates please

An expensive memory

There’s no question that UAD plugs are good but this unit has been left behind by UAD.

No updates to plugins for quite some time even as they come out for the studio accelerators and only “officially supported” by an old version of High Sierra, not even the most of to date version of HS shows that this extremely expensive quad processor is being neglected.

After asking about updates multiple times, the question is deflected with “not at this time”.

For something that had so much potential, I’m pretty disappointed with the purchase in the end. I had planned on getting a second but won’t be wasting my money.

Please apply updates ASAP and support the unit as you do the studio range. Show it some love!

No updates since ages, totally neglected...

after investing € 3500 in plugins and € 3000 in the hardware, it is extremely disappointing to see that the live rack gets no updates at all. none of the newer plugins are working. it seems to me ua has abandoned this unit... very sad!

Could be nice...

But the software ist very old and no updates. So all the new plugins are not working.

Portugal Tour with Live Rack

This is now a game changing position for me.
I have all the processing I need with my 2x UAD Live Rack. Being a "parallel compression guy" this made my life a lot easier and better :) - Mário Correia / FOH / D.A.M.A

Touring UAD-2 Live Rack with Zara Larsson 2019

On this 2019 Touring year we went for the UAD-2 Live Rack to take control over our vocal FX's backbone. And we are extremely happy with the sound and stability of the UAD-2 Live Rack. We use Allen&Heath dLive consoles with Super Made option cards. - Oscar Soederlund/ParashootFOH Zara Larsson

3 Grand for the rack unit and it's only a UAD-Quad? Something like this should be specced as high as the most currently available UAD2 Satellite Octa - which 2/3's cheaper.

Also - the connectively for remote control is way too system specific and would have benefited from iOS or an embedded VNC Server (such as the Trinnov DMON series). That way *any* system or tablet could control it, Dramatically widening your customer base.

I would have loved to use this as part of my hybrid studio using dedicated MADI ADC/DACs like a ferrofish A32.. and mixed and matched signals fwith my real analog outboard.. but it just seems too cumbersome and underpowered for the money.

With these two factors, I'm sure these aren't flying off the shelf.

Hope to update the 9.8 new version driver as soon as possible

Drivers are not well updated and supported

Why can't you support PC?
