--- Quote ---ltra-Powerful DSP and Plug-In Value!
The UAD-1 Ultra Pak gives you 13 of UA's prized software plug-ins plus the power of the UAD-1 DSP card! Whether you use a PC or Mac, your tracks will sound better and your CPU will run better when you install the UAD-1.

Universal Audio UAD-1 Ultra Pak at a Glance:
PCI card with processor takes a load off your computer!
Includes UA's latest plug-ins
More DSP power than other hardware systems
Takes a load off your computer!
"More power!" is a demand we often hear from computer recording customers. Even with the latest, fastest, most powerful CPUs, effects and virtual instruments can seriously compromise computer performance. The UAD-1 takes a load off your CPU by employing its own DSP processor. Assigning effects to the UAD-1 allows your computer to handle tracks without the burden of additional processing!

Includes UA's most popular plug-ins
The UAD-1 Ultra Pak expands on the strength of the Studio Pak by adding four of UA's latest plug-ins. The Pultec Pro combines the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, two of the most sought-after hardware EQs, into one plugin that is the very essence of vintage EQ emulation. The Precision Limiter is a colorless, transparent mastering limiter - no upsampling is used, nor does the Precision Limiter pass audio through any filters - audio remains untouched unless the compressor is working. Universal Audio's brand new Precision EQ delivers ultimate control and flexibility. And the Plate 140, a recreation of the classic EMT 140 plate reverb.

Other Included UAD-1 Ultra Pak Software Plug-Ins:
1176SE: The 1176SE is derived from the 1176LN. Its algorithm has been revised in order to provide sonic characteristics similar to the 1176LN but with significantly less DSP usage. It is provided to allow "1176LN-like sound" when DSP resources are limited.
CS-1: The CS-1 Channel Strip provides all the tools you need for recording and mixing in one simple plug-in (using only one insert!) With a unique smoothing algorithm for all controls and DSP conserving bypass switches built-in, The CS-1 packs a whopping punch into a small package. Included in the CS-1 are the EX-1 EQ/Compressor, the DM-1 Delay Modulator, and the unique RS-1 Reflection Engine. Of course, if you don't need all that power, you can use each module within the CS-1 separately. Use as much or as little as desired for your particular needs.
RealVerb Pro: What if you could put your sound right in the perfectly designed room? Based on UA's own unique set of algorithms, the world-class RealVerb Pro plug-in lets you design the room just as you hear it. Get beyond the barriers of simply big and small, dark or bright. RealVerb Pro gives you UA's trademark, distortion-free, smoothing diffusion control and ultra-long reverb tail. Driven by the processing power of the UAD-1, RealVerb Pro can run eight instances simultaneously, with ease. RealVerb Pro is the most flexible and natural sounding reverb plug-in in the industry.
Nigel: Amp, Cab, & FX for Guitar and Beyond (+8 plug-in modules, included). Nigel offers the latest generation of guitar processing technology integrated into a complete multi-effects plug-in solution. Utilizing Universal Audio's exclusive component modeling technology and intuitive design, Nigel delivers a complete pallet of guitar tones along with most every effect a guitar player might need, all with minimal latency and no load on your host computer's CPU.
Pultec EQP-1A: The Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer plug-in is a faithful electronic reproduction of the classic hardware equalizer. The Pultec EQ has long been a choice of recording and mastering engineers for its ability to bring out individual frequency ranges without significantly altering other frequencies. In addition, the Pultec is one of those magical pieces of gear that makes audio sound better - just by passing through it. The sophisticated modeling technology used in the Pultec EQP-1A plug-in captures both of these key characteristics.
More DSP power than other hardware systems
At heart of the Universal Audio UAD-1 Ultra Pak is the same single unpartitioned, floating-point super-computing processor which allows for larger and more sophisticated processing algorithms, offering a new level of power and complexity not found with host-based plug-ins. By greatly reducing the burden on your computer's CPU, your host application can now deliver more tracks, automation and native effects. The UAD-1 Ultra Pak supports 44.1 to 192khz sessions and is the easiest way to upgrade your mixes and get that professional polished sound using your existing DAW software/hardware without needing a computer upgrade.

Universal Audio UAD-1 Ultra Pak Features:
Single unpartitioned super-computer DSP Chip
Bus mastering DMA for zero host load and maximum transfer rate
