Cool

Hey UAD people, if youre reading this, just wanna let you know. I love my UAD card and all the plugs I have - but if UAD2 wont come out in the near future Im gonna buy myself a Focusrite LiquidMix instead of another UAD card.

I'll say it slowly so u could understand:

I'm hoping for Firewire UAD-2,
I remember many years ago I asked them about releasing FW version of UAD and a lady replied that they may consider it in UAD-2.
Bandwidth difference between PCIe and Firewire isn't relly a problem, because Firewire has enough bandwidth to transport a decent number of I/O. Look at RME Fireface (56 audio streams) or SSL Duende (64 audio streams).

And isn't that band-width of fire-wire about to quadruple soon as well?

Dear UAD Users,

We would like to clear up speculation and mis-information by making a formal statement from both UA & EL clearing up the following points.

1) UA & EL have signed a Trademark Licensing Agreement.

2) There will be plug-in partnership announcement at NAMM 2008 confirming that the EL Fatso will be a forthcoming plug-in for UAD-1.(ONE)

3) The expected ship date for the UAD EL Fatso plug-in will not however be until late 2008.

Apologies for any confusion and we wish you all a Happy 2008 in your music making!

Lol! Yeah "Vintage DSP", like you said - comes with that familiar feeling of 'warm frustration' and CPU busting error messages...

UAD-2 could well save me from buying the Focusrite Liquid Mix which was next on my list. I know it will certainly cost more, but if it has some decent plugs and is powerful - I'm In.

Looking forward to NAMM 08!

Well there is still 2 weeks to go.. This thread is gonna continue to grow and grow with endless speculation.
If they don't release an update there is gonna be a lot of back-fire.. the truth is, it doesn't mater how long they take to make it, everyone is gonna want to buy one straight away. i recently bought a powercore out of th need for extra DSP, but the thing SUCKS compared to my old UAD plugs. I NEED them back!!!

This is very true, and I suspect the reason companies such as SPL and EL agreed to develop and license plugins with UA, since they've been proven not to be ravaged by piracy.

Now give us a more powerful dongle UA!

Whatever it's the FATSO!!
The only hardware unit that I would ever buy.
Let's say the lugin costs 250$ + the 300$ (?) for a UAD1 and this thing sounds NEARLY as good as the original ,it would be the best bang for the buck ever.

I owned a fatso for a year or so. Personally I loved the way it looked, and the feeling that it gave me that I actually bought one but nothing and I mean nothing has changed in the quality of my recordings or mixes since I sold it.

Never felt it sounded like tape. I must have been doing something seriously wrong with the few controls it possessed.

Not going to happen - at least for their flagship card (maybe a "lite" version? But you would still likely need a Firewire PCI card to create a new bus which wouldn't compete with any other audio devices).

It's all in the webzine explaining why..... even if Firewire bandwidth does quadruple this year, there's more to the UAD processing than that. Again, search the webzine archieves over at UA and there's a detailed article from about a year ago explaining why they are sticking with a PCI interface for the UAD line....

That there is no zine, on the 3rd day of the month doesn't mean much. There was no webzine released in Feb. 2007, and a lot of times the zine isn't released until the middle of the given month. All saving the zine till after NAMM means is that, yes UA will have something new to announce/show off at NAMM, and that they want to feature it in the zine. Could just be a piece of outboard gear. I imagine they'll be heavily promoting the SPL and the new compressor at this year's show.

If that is the case, it will turn out to be one of the most damaging typos a company could possibly have...

I still have faith that they have a new card they have been keeping under wraps. They just have to since the market demands it. ;-) If not, thats it for me. I plan to sell all but one card just to keep the plugin licenses handy in the event they eventually do release something this decade.

That would at least add some more power, but I'd like to see them go head to head with TDM/Accel latencey/powerwise. Why not?

There's nothing they can do latencywise unless they decide to go all-out and also serve as an audio interface. TDM is primarily an i/o system that also offers DSP...the audio never gets to the host CPU, unless it goes through RTAS.

Which hmm...come to think of it, UA might want to try. They have made converters, preamps, etc...

But that's a needless complication on the product line...they'd be fighting a two-front battle, and too many people already have substantial investments in audio interfaces. So no this will probably just be a set of plugins with a hardware DSP to prevent piracy.

Well congrats on a contract with Dave Derr!

But who is the guy that has to be fired for being too unskilled to build a UAD 2? heh heh heh

Dear UNIVERAL AUDIO,
that unit is damn old and damn underpowered! Keep existing and future customers satisfied and give us MORE POWER! I do not care for Billy-Bob Thornten or anyone else on your user list, I care for a UAD 2!

(P.S.: Only a fool will start any Angelina Jolie jokes! heh (Thought of it, too!))

Oh dear Lord this keeps getting worse and worse. It's should be a dead set rule that you MUST read the entire thread before posting so you can avoid stuff like this. Isn't this like the 3rd time this has been posted in this thread? I never realized in the past how few people actually read or how selective their reading really is. For the love of all things audio, read people, just read.

That explains 0 latencey on live input, but not after the fact where every solution other than TDM seems to falter. It is after all, a PCI card with PPC DSP chips that plugins run off of regardless wether it has audio passing through it or not. Am I wrong?

The mix engine isn't running on the host CPU in TDM. It is on other systems. They had a lot of problems integrating RTAS into TDM which I think they have solved now, but they needed Delay Comp working to do so. I think there are inevitable compromises when you run RTAS in a TDM system though (they don't magically have low latency). And the TDM latency isn't 0 either, but it is much faster than host-based systems.

it is hard to believe anyone familiar with the hysteria about UA's long delay on this would make that typo... possible, but unlikely, no? It would be like writing to your toothless friend that you'd be "gappy" to go have spaghetti with them next tuesday.
