In DepthIncludes the Premium Neve 88RS Plug-in
Neve gear just carries that certain sonic "aura" - and it’s a sound that’s often emulated year after year. Yet, Universal Audio’s Neve plug-ins are the only plug-ins officially licensed by Neve, your guarantee that they sound both spot-on and incredible. With the UAD-2 Nevana 32, you get the premium 88RS plug-in - a model of the same console living in studios such as Skywalker Sound, 20th Century Fox, Abbey Road, and Ocean Way - putting you in touch with that highly sought-after, authentic Neve sound.
Cutting-edge SHARC chip technology by Analog Devices
The new UAD-2 cards from Universal Audio take advantage of state-of-the-art chip technology. These SHARC chips boast 32-bit, floating-point architecture, for the ultimate in precision and performance. When put to work on premium PCIe cards, such as the UAD-2 Solo Flexi, the power potential is truly phenomenal.
Up to Two and a Half Times the Processing Power of the UAD-1
Featuring one premium SHARC chip, the UAD-2 Nevana 32 is a powerful and professional PCIe card. It offers an incredible two and a half times the processing power of the original UAD-1 card. What’s more, Universal Audio has updated their plug-ins to take advantage of all this power, giving you premium plug-in sound and enough plug-in instances to experience unprecedented in-the-box mixing.
Can Use up to Four Cards Together
While the power of each individual UAD-2 card, such as the UAD-2 Nevana 32, is incredible on its own, you can use cards in tandem with one another to meet the needs of even the most demanding sessions. In all, you can mix and match UAD-2 cards to create a maximum of a 4-card UAD-2 card system. Yet, you can also add up to four UAD-1 cards to the mix, for a complete 8-card powerhouse system.
Compatible with UAD-1 Card Systems
If you already own a UAD-1 Card, you can enjoy even more processing power with the UAD-2 Nevana 32 and other UAD-2 cards. The original UAD-1 cards work seamlessly with UAD-2 systems. Use up to four UAD-1 cards with up to four UAD-2 cards to get the most processing power possible.
SessionMap for UAD-1/UAD-2 Session Compatibility
The UAD-2 Nevana 32 features SessionMap, allowing for bi-directional compatibility between UAD-1 and UAD-2 plug-in systems. You can share a session created on a UAD-2 card with a user on a UAD-1 card, and vice versa. The software will automatically determine which version of the plug-ins are available on the system and load them into the session, so you don’t have to spend time doing any re-mapping.
LiveTrack Low-latency Mode for Tracking
Using UAD-2 Nevana 32’s LiveTrack mode, you can reduce latency on active UAD-2 plug-ins to the lowest amount possible - ideal for monitoring rich, processed audio during the tracking stages.
LoadLock Feature to Ensure Adequate DSP
By default, UAD-2 Nevana 32’s new LoadLock feature is turned on. This useful tool automatically reserves the maximum DSP load that each UAD-2 plug-in could ever demand - even if you’re not using all of its features. This way, you can be positive you have enough DSP to engage all the features, such as writing automation, later in your mix, without making sonic compromises and pulling plug-ins down the line. If you prefer to manage your DSP resources manually, you can easily disable LoadLock.
Includes Mix Essentials II Plug-in Package
With the UAD-2 Nevana 32 system, you also get Universal Audio’s "Mix Essentials II" plug-in package, so you can get to work with additional studio staple tools straight out of the box. The package include such titles as the UA 1176SE Compressor/Limiter, the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, the RealVerb Pro Room Modeler, and the CS-1 Channel Strip.
$100 Plug-in Voucher
In addition to the tremendous plug-in package included with the UAD-2 Nevana 32, you get a $100 plug-in voucher that you can use toward any of Universal Audio’s world-class plug-ins. Recognized as an industry leader in creating dead-on models of the most sought-after vintage gear, Universal Audio offers affordably-priced plug-in versions of everything from a Fairchild compressor to the Roland Space Echo - and far, far beyond.
Even More Plug-in Options Than Before
Universal Audio exploited every drop of power technologically possible in designing the UAD-2 Nevana 32 and their other state-of-the-art UAD-2 cards. Complementing the achievement, they’ve expanded their power on the sonic front as well. Already in partnership with top names, such as Neve, Roland, and Moog, Universal Audio is working on greatly expanding their plug-in line. Models in the works include the famous Empirical Labs Fatso, the acclaimed EQ from the Harrison 4032C, the Little Labs IBP, and various EQs, compressors, and gates from Valley People. And, with the potency packed in the new cards, Universal Audio has positioned themselves to develop new kinds of plug-ins entirely, including instruments and impulse-based reverb effects.
