A very good sound with a little annoyance.

Early days. Initial impression sound wise is very, very good and I am pleased (check out numerous online audio examples). I was tickled by the subtle rounding in a lush way a Neve pre amp worked on a guitar input. Lovely, it's the little things. Studer tape sim does the trick wonderfully, thank you UAD. However: UAD software has crashed a couple of times which I was surprised by. I am looking into the cause but this was surprising, hence the 4 stars. If just on tone 5 out of 5.

UAD 2 Pcie card Bought used from Reverb

Been using the Softube Console 1 / Fader system and have been really wanting to get into UAD plugins as they integrate into that ecosystem . Finally picked up a UAD -2 Quad Card and am really happy . The sound of the plugins are amazing, and the reduction of load on my computers CPU makes a huge difference in the way my system runs. I was a first skeptical abought buying a used piece of computer hardware but UAD made transfer of ownership seamless.

Expanded Power

Mixing is faster, smoother, easier! I don't have to worry about my cpu load as much, and my plugins sound amazing! My mixes are big and often times contain many virtual instruments. UAD has really helped save me time and CPU load, allowing me to just focus on mixing.

Great hardware, and good software deals-if you pay attention.

I have had Octo cards before in a different system, so to buy two more to run UAD-2 plugins was a no-brainer.

It is rare that anyone claims that another vender's plugin is better than a specific UAD plugin. In most cases, I don't agree with them.

The caveat I would add to this is that when you are purchasing plugins (whether individually, in bundles, on sale or whatever) be sure that you are buying a plugin that is offered in a bundle or collection. It's easy to buy something without checking it out first just to discover that you were a few dollars away from additional items. Been there, done that.

Other than that, UAD has jam up hardware and their plugins are first rate.

Broke After 1 Year

Purchased on 12 April 2020 as of 11 Nov 2021 no longer work. Worked fine yesterday. Turned on the computer today and all LED go red. No change made to computer. No identifiable variable(s) changed from one day ago. All Online help articles followed step by step. Old songs that used UAD plugins must now be abandoned. I feel disappointed and scammed.

即戦力で使用できる頼もしい味方

カードの取り付けも容易に行え、インストール等も特に問題なく行えました。プラグインの使い方については、然程マニュアルを見ないでも直感的に試行錯誤、文字通り試してみるかたちで使用できます。音の変化を楽しむ感覚でパラメーターを操作することにより自分が求めている質感に辿り着けるように思います(それなりの難しさはありますけど)。
気になっていたプラグインによるCPU負荷が嘘のように激減し、フリーズを使うことなくミックスに集中できます。以前のようにフリーズとアンフリーズを繰り返すことがなくなり、かなりの時間短縮となっています。
あまりにも使い勝手が良いので、もう1枚カードを購入してもいいかなと思い始めています。旧型のMac Pro(2010)を使っていますが、まだまだこのシステムで音楽に没頭できることが嬉しいですね。

Prepare for Lag

If you want to use this card to the full potential, forget about it. Loading up a few plugins will give you 100+ms latency and if you want to use all the processing power on the card and fill up the effects/processing rack your going to get 700+ms latency. The plugins sound good, but the latency ruins everything good about the card.

UAD really needs to come out with a new card that allows for a lot less latency so the new generation will actually use this. Otherwise UAD will die with the boomers. I don't recommend this product. The only reason I give it 2 stars is that this is the only way you get get certain special effects like reverb or chorus or other special processor for a vocal. Only if you are working with a top artist and you absolutely need that exact tone on their vocal you know they are going to demand would you ever need this. But at that point if you are working with that kind of artist, you should use the real hardware and rent a studio that has it so you can get that iconic sound.

But for 99.9% of the time you cant use this, I recommend plugin alliance as they have all the same plugins and they run off your CPU and not these 20 year old sharc ships. You will have fractions of a millisecond per plugin instance with plugin alliance and you get just as good of sound.

You Can't Live without it

PCIe Accelerator is the best solution to have much power as possible. If you use your DAW in studio, at home, you MUST have it
