– Included LA-2A and 1176LN Emulations Provide Every UAD-2 Customer Instant
Access to UA’s Hallmark “Analog Sound,” Right Out of the Box –
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA – August 2, 2010 – Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of high-
quality audio recording hardware and developer of the award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins
Platform, today announced a significant update to its popular UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Packages.
All UAD-2 SOLO, DUO and QUAD DSP Accelerator Packages now feature smaller, “greener”
packaging, and include the new “Analog Classics” Software Bundle at no additional cost — the
perfect way to inject the true sound of analog gear into the digital domain.
UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Packages are instant sonic upgrades for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase,
Nuendo or Digital Performer, providing rich, analog sound quality that would be difficult or
impossible to achieve with a native Mac- or PC-based system. More notably, they grant users
access to the entire catalog of UAD Powered Plug-Ins (sold separately) — including favorites
from Manley®, Roland®, BOSS®, Empirical Labs®, EMT®, Fairchild®, Harrison®, Helios®, Little
Labs®, Pultec®, SPL®, Trident®, Teletronix® and more.
The NEW “Analog Classics” Software Bundle features:
• LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler — Previously only available for purchase online, this
plug-in is the world’s most accurate emulation of UA’s revered, electro-optical, analog
• 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier — Also previously only available for purchase
online, this plug-in is the world’s most accurate emulation of UA’s legendary, FET-
based, hardware classic.
• 1176SE Limiting Amplifier — A DSP-optimized version of the 1176LN, yielding
higher instance counts and its own unique characteristics.
• Pultec EQP-1A EQ — Another spot-on emulation of classic analog gear. Pultec EQ’s
have been studio staples for decades and this plug-in proves equally indispensible.
• RealVerb Pro Room Modeler — The RealVerb Pro has often been hailed as the most
flexible and natural sounding reverb plug-in in the industry
