Universal Audio (UA) announces the impending release of UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP accelerator packages.

The UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library within easy reach of FireWire 800 and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA's DSP engineers work with leading hardware manufacturers—including Roland, Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs, Trident, SPL, EMT, and more—using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears. This gives computer-based musicians and engineers the warmth and harmonics of classic analog recordings, wherever they mix.

Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite packages provide a processing boost for digital audio workstations, and include a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins, right out of the box.

The complete line of UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators is slated for a Q1 2011 release with prices starting at $899. For more information, visit the UA website.
