Breath taking sound, medium build quality

Giorgos A., 22.02.2017
This is my go-to plugin accelerator. I love the sound and can't live with out it. I own many UAD plugins and I love everyone of them. It;s ease to install the card, and also very easy to setup a UAD account. Frequent software updates and very good supprot from Universal Audio. The only drawback I have faced, is that I have 2 UAD-quad pci-e cards, failed in 4 years. That makes me question the built quality of the cards and I think Universal Audio should consider updating their manufacturing process or testing procedures before they sell a product.

A must have

Kirschner, 15.08.2013
I use two units, from the beginnings no runout of the dsp power. The additional plugins are just great too. Easy to install - with a screwdriver the full process is less than 5 minutes. Can't live without it
