UAD Plug-In craftsmanship

In developing UAD plug-ins, UA’s engineering group meticulously recreates classic analog gear via physical modeling that literally rebuilds the unit component by component in the digital domain. With UAD-2 plugs, you have to treat them as you would actual analog gear in terms of how you apply signal. For example, you can “hit” them harder for more saturation, or back off for cleaner response. UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware, bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics “inside the box.”

Who’s Using UAD-2 powered plug-ins?

With an extensive and ever-growing list of professional and amateur users, some of the audio luminaries who use UAD-2 powered plug-ins as an irreplaceable part of their process, include 11-time Grammy winner, Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk, Eric Clapton), Joe Chiccarelli (Jason Mraz, Beck, The Strokes, Morrisey) Ryan West (Eminem, Kanye West), Darrell Thorp ( Beck, Radiohead), Jaycen Joshua (Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Jay Z), Vance Powell (The Raconteurs, Jars of Clay), and many more.
