The fact that I don´t tell my sources does not mean it´s a baseless speculation. I told you that Logic 8 would be released soon when everybody was sayin "I think Apple has dropped development on Logic". GS people did not believe me and they wanted a *proof*. GS people want a *proof*, even if somebody would loose his/her job for that. But then GS people got their *proof* when Logic 8 finally came out.

Now I told you several times I know for *sure* they are working on UAD-2 and you say it´s baseless speculation. Next time I will not tell you anything anymore. I am not a liar and I do not do baseless speculations.

Here for the gear
 

it seems that most people around here don't realize that intel x86 chips suck at audio processing compared to dedicated dsp, its not what they're designed for at all. using an x86 chip for audio processing is about the equivalent of a gamer saying "i have 2 processors and a bunch of ram, i can just use one of my processors instead of a dedicated graphics card." it doesn't work that way. you can do so much more with the right tools.

anyone who says that digital can't be as good as analog doesn't understand sampling theory and/or computational theory. an analog signal can be represented as the number of electrons flowing through the converter during each sample. When you look at the output level of a microphone, its less than 2^23 electrons per sample at 96 khz, so it can be represented fine by a 24 bit number. With a sample rate of 96khz you aren't losing anything in the high frequencies as you can represent up to 48khz with no loss of quality. If you think about it, a compressor operates on input with a fixed maximum size, attack time+release time+c where c is a constant. Nothing that came before this time is going to have any effect on the output of the compressor. I think this is called the envelope but I'm not sure about that. What is important is that a compressor is calculated in constant space. This means it can be represented by a regular language and can be decided by a state machine. We know how to build state machines.

If you don't have a degree in computer science you probably didn't understand that. Sorry. Basically what it says is that it is theoretically possible to exactly model hardware compressors in software. EQ's are even simpler.

I'm really hoping that the UAD-2 stuff is going to be indistinguishable from hardware. I think the dsp technology is powerful enough now to do it, so hopefully they got it this time.

How about a link,

like a link from an official UAD annoucement ?

Perhaps ?

Or are we going through the same inane grapevine thread again, like the one I almost started when the head of UAD import guy in France told me a year ago: "there is a surprise coming soon, honnest to God, on my mother's eyes"

My my! What exactly is it that made you think I was talking to you? My post was a joke, I was poking fun at all the rumors by claiming I had "hard" info via some fifth hand blather. I sorta figured that the "UAD-2" might mean "UAD too" would be the tip off, but I guess it fell flat. Anyway, just my luck, once I decide to try and be funny the next post has some hard info :-)

As to the product, it's great to hear that something's coming

I was wondering about that too. If your UAD 1 plugs can be ported over to UAD2 without any kind of buy back scheme that would mean you would still be able to use your existing UAD1 cards and licenses on another computer or do whatever you want with them which to me still makes them worth something. You probably wouldn't be able to upgrade the software but even if my cards never get upgraded again they still will be very usable for a long time.

I wonder how they are going to handle this.

Just throw up a splash page or something.

go look yourself on guitarcenter.com, musiciansfriend.com, sweetwater.com

they all posted UAD-2 information yesterday.

UA has not made an official announcement yet.

Are you kidding?? Go and talk to somebody who once bought a big Pro Tools III TDM rig, right before ProTools 24 came out. Or somebody who bought an SSL G series, right before they stopped making those big floppy drives SSL used. THAT's money down the drain.

Question:

I have two UAD 1 cards with lots of plugs.
If I sell both cards to someone, do I still own the licenses for the plugs? Or are they part of the cards?

Does that mean I'd have to re-buy all of my plugs for the UAD 2?dfegad
