The Authentic Sound of Analog.
For more than 15 years, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have delivered the world’s most authentic analog hardware emulations for Mac and Windows. Powered by UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware, you get classic studio sound that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with native recording systems.
The World’s Finest Analog Emulation Plug-Ins
From rare tube compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines, UAD Powered Plug-Ins inject three-dimensional “out-of-the-box” analog sound to your in-the-box and live mixes.
Offload your Computer’s CPU with DSP Acceleration
With UAD Powered Plug-Ins, the actual processing is offloaded to UAD-2 hardware. This frees up your computer to do other things, like mixing audio and running samplers or soft synths.
