UAD Quad Custom

Sven P. 835, 27.11.2012
After unpacking the card and the joy of finally sounding "high-end", I invited all the necessary drivers from the UAudio site to get started. The installation of the card took just 2 minutes. The option, with the "Custom" package 3 plugins to add after choice, I then synonymous used to me "hardware" worth about 9000EUR to treat - and I must say, the plugins are beyond any doubt sublime. The FATSO sounds great, the Manley Massive Passive is without words and just times a SSL 4000er desk on the screen to build simply uplifting. I am thrilled, the sound is as I imagined it and my DAW is so strongly relieved that I can set the latencies lower without the CPU spiking.

Only the hefty prices for further plugins scare off a little. But the replicated devices as hardware would of course be much more expensive, so this is okay. The basic equipment of the card can also be seen, except for the - in my opinion - sound not quite as competitive "Realverb" plugin, which is also not exactly a eyesight. The UA1176 sound bold, the LA2A is also great and the mid-cut Pultec EQ sounds also very fine.

I would buy this card again, and of course at my favorite music store Thomann.

The power and sound of a studio project

jonxmass, 22.08.2015
I bought it for projects mixing TV documentaries and ads in my small studio pro. I'm delighted: Sonnox plug-in to me without putting my mac to my knees! I also have the SSL pack. I have not yet overcome all the power but the quality is there. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the differential latency of the tracks that do not have UAD plugs in their chain, but a small delay setting on these tracks and we talk more. So I also bought the Firewire module for my Macbook Pro.
