    Product Information

    With scalable processing power from eight individual analogue devices and SHARC processors, the UAD DSP OCTO Accelerator offers a big mixing horsepower “boost” to your host Mac or PC workstation.

    Ready to super-charge your Mac or PC tower with world-class analog sound? UAD-2 DSP OCTO Accelerator card provides full access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins, including exclusive plug-ins from Steadier, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL and more.

    The UAD-2 package feature a user-installable PCIe-format processing card for your desktop tower or compatible expansion chassis, plus the “Analogue Classics” plug-in bundle (VST/AU/RTAS), giving you vintage tone and character, right out of the box.

    From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins have been winning over audio professionals for more than 10 years. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins so faithfully capture the sound and behaviour of classic analog equipment — from rare compressors and equalisers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines.

    The award-winning UAD library features nearly 60 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled “Custom” and “Ultimate” packages.

    Much like a studio rack filled with dedicated analog gear, UAD PCIe cards let you reliably run larger mixes, filled with rich, sonically complex plug-ins — no matter what the rest of your system is doing. For example, a UAD-2 OCTO can run up to 80 mono instances of our groundbreaking Studer A800 Tape Machine plug-in — a processing task that would bring a native workstation to its knees.


    • Run UAD Powered Plug-Ins on Mac and PC towers and PCIe expansion chassis
    • Access nearly 60 plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Roland, Studer, Neve, Manley, SSL, EMT, Empirical Labs, MXR and more (sold separately)

    • Package includes “Analogue Classics” bundle featuring LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifiers, Pultec EQP-1A and Realverb Pro plug-ins.
    • Compatible with Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, Digital Performer and more
    • Combine with other UAD-2 devices, including additional UAD-2 PCIe card(s), UAD-2 Satellite (FireWire), and Apollo audio interface
