The UAD-2 OCTO Core DSP Accelerator is Universal Audio’s most powerful PCIe processing card, giving producers and engineers massive power for running award-winning UAD plug-ins on Mac or PC.

The UAD-2 OCTO Core features eight SHARC processors, and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped desktop computer or compatible expansion chassis (PCIe or Thunderbolt*), giving your workstation a significant boost in audio quality and mix processing power.

Comments about Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Core PCIe DSP Accelerator Package:
What can I say, If your reading this you know how much firepower an Octo card can bring to your system! This is my second card as well as a UAD Apollo Quad, So I'm up to 20 Sharcs DSP's! And I'll probably still want more but don't let that discourage you. One Octo card is an amazing amount of Plugin Power for what I consider the Best Audio Plugins on the Market!!!
