Universal Audio Inc. makes software designed to replicate the sound of vintage audio hardware. The company announced Friday the release of new UAD-1 software compatible with the Power Mac G5, Mac OS X and Mac OS X’s Audio Units format. It’s being initially released as a public beta.
UAD-1 comprises both a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) card installed in a PCI slot and “Powered Plug-Ins” audio software that’s designed to work with software like Cubase, Nuendo and Logic. With Audio Units support added, UAD-1 can now work with other Audio Units-aware applications.
Powered Plug-Ins available from Universal Audio include the 1176LN and Teletronix LA-2A vintage compressors, the Pultec EQP-1A and Cambridge EQs, RealVerb Pro, the Nigel Guitar Processor, Dreamverb and the CS-1 Channel Strip.
