Should I buy third UAD-1 if I'm getting Sawstudio


I currently have Cubase SX and 2 UAD-1 cards. I planned to get a third UAD-1 for the Pultecs, but then discovered SAW for the first time.

Should I bother getting the third UAD-1, or will it not be needed.

What are SAW's eq's like?

I suggest you hang out at the SAW forum. Great group of guys there ! If you're considering SAW, then I'd hold off on that 3rd UAD-1 until you get a chance to see what's available for SAW. Some great native SAW plugs being developed. Many SAW users are now totally running native plugs.

SAW is a great system. The audio quality is very "analog" somehow. Give it a fair shot, watch the videos, tutorials, d/l the demo.

I've had it for about 6 months and I will NOT be looking for another system as long as SAW is around !

2 uad-1 is enough for sawstudio, honestly , too much plugins loaded form uad-1 would increae the loading of saw. Eq and compressor of saw are also great !!I can say it is the best built-in plugin i've ever seen.

SAW Studio has some very loyal fans. Almost like a cult. If you do a search you can find several discussions about SAW Studio, comparisons to Samplitude, etc...

I tried demos of both and decided to stick with the Mac! Logic Pro 7 for now. Just couldn't wrap my brain around the PC thing.
