The UAD-2 QUAD Flexi is Universal Audio's most powerful and flexible processing package, offering full access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins on Mac or PC—plus a $500 plug-in voucher to build your own personalized bundle. This DSP accelerator package includes several of Universal Audio's most popular "analog classic" plug-ins—the LA-2A and 1176 Compressors/Limiters, and the Pultec EQP-1A—for rich, vintage sound quality right out of the box. Thanks to its PCIe card with 4 SHARC processors, the UAD-2 QUAD provides 4 times the processing boost of the UAD-2 SOLO, allowing for the largest professional mixes. Better still, it gives users full access to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library, including some of the best-reviewed plug-ins of all time.

Specifically, the UAD-2 QUAD Flexi provides access to popular UAD plug-in titles from Manley, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, BOSS, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix, and more (sold separately). Whether you use Cubase, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer, or Pro Tools, these UAD-2 plug-ins can inject the character and quality of classic hardware into your mixes, while freeing up your computer's internal processor for other mixing duties.

Mac- and Windows-compatible, with support for VST, Audio Units and RTAS, the UAD-2 QUAD Flexi is easy to use. Just install the software, install the card, and start mixing. Developed by one of the industry's finest engineering team, and backed by frequent new software and plug-in releases, the UAD-2 is the processing platform of choice for many of the world's top musicians, producers, and engineers.
