Description

Plug Universal Audio's amazing UAD-2 Solo PCIe card into your computer and find out what your mixes have been missing! This powerful card delivers a collection of classic-sounding processing plug-ins that truly rival their hardware counterparts - at a fraction of the cost. You'll be amazed by the UAD-2 Solo's Analog Classics collection, which includes spot-on plug-in versions of the venerable LA-2A audio leveler, 1176LN/SE limiting amps, and Pultec's EQP-1A program EQ. You also get the outstanding RealVerb Pro room modeler. UAD-Solo gives you all this plus the DSP power you need to take the load off of your CPU! The UAD-2 cards take advantage of state-of-the-art chip technology. These SHARC chips boast 32-bit floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to work on premium PCIe cards, such as the UAD-2 Solo, these chips' power potential is truly phenomenal. While the power of each individual UAD-2 card is incredible on its own, you can use cards in tandem to meet the needs of even the most demanding sessions. In all, you can mix and match UAD-2 cards to create a maximum of a 4-card UAD-2 card system. Using UAD-2 Solo's LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible - ideal for monitoring rich, processed audio during the tracking stages. By default, UAD-2 Solo's new LoadLock feature is turned on. This useful tool automatically reserves the maximum DSP load that each UAD-2 plug-in could ever demand - even if you're not using all of its features. This way, you can be positive you have enough DSP to engage all the features, such as writing automation, later in your mix, without making sonic compromises and pulling plug-ins down the line. If you prefer to manage your DSP resources manually, you can easily disable LoadLock. Universal Audio exploited every drop of power technologically possible in designing the UAD-2 cards. Complementing the achievement, they've expanded their power on the sonic front as well. You'll be able to open up your DAW to absolutely stunning plug-ins UA has developed in partnership with top names, such as Manley, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, BOSS, EMT, Fairchild, Harrison, Helios, Little Labs, Pultec, SPL, Teletronix, and more. And with the potency packed in these new cards, Universal Audio has positioned themselves to develop entirely new kinds of plug-ins, including instruments and impulse-based reverb effects.

UAD-2 Pcie problems

I'm on an AMD system but we've had this problem with all Ryzen builds on UAD-2 solo, duo and quad cards. ASUS apparently updated their BIOS a while back (like November or something) and some of us updated it recently, along with keeping the OS up to date of course, and got our cards...
