uad-1 project pak (?)



--- Quote ---Pure Power - Pure Value!
The UAD-1 Project Pak brings UA's revolutionary combination of DSP hardware and highly-prized software plug-ins within the reach of small PC or Mac project studios with a limited budget. It is also how existing users can inexpensively take advantage of even greater power, by using multiple UAD-1 cards (up to four per system). The UAD-1 Project 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.

At heart of the Universal Audio UAD-1 Project 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.

Included UAD-1 Project Pak Software Plug-Ins:
1176SE: The 1176SE is derived from the 1176LN. Its algorithm has been revised in orderto 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 our 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 our 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.

apparently the UAD-1 will work in 32bit MACOSX, but not 64bit MACOSX
ive read of people having it work in snow leopard 10.6.8 in 32bit mode

but the whole point of snow leopard was to get 64bit support;
so it might be better off to stick to using UAD-1 in powerpc computers only
(leopard, tiger, panther) or even the older Classic Mac OS (MacOS9)

Or maybe even to use with Windows XP (Pro tools 6.4?) *shrug*

I thought i owned more plugins than this but i guess not
