Mackie, Universal Bring Mac Support to the UAD-1

Hardware/software bundle gets cross-platform parity By Dave Nagel
Mackie Designs and Universal Audio have announced Macintosh platform support for the UAD-1 DSP Card and Powered Plug-Ins Pro. Mackie Designs, the distributor of the UAD-1 and Powered Plug-Ins Pro, will also handle distribution of the Macintosh version.

"Support for the Mac has always been a key component of our strategy with the UAD-1," said Universal Audio co-founder and CEO Bill Putnam in a prepared statement. "The UAD-1 is now truly cross-platform. We deliver the same box to a Mac or PC users?they simply pop in the CD ROM installer and they?re good to go."

The Powered Plug-Ins Pro bundle includes a suite of DSP-intensive software plugins powered by the UAD-1, a PCI-based DSP card. The Powered Plug-Ins Pro bundle for the Macintosh is the same as the PC version and includes the UAD-1 DSP card, Kind of Loud Technologies? RealVerb Pro, 1176LN and LA-2A Compressor emulations, EQ-1 EQ module, CX-1 compressor module, MD-1 modulated delay and RS-1 Room Simulator module.

The Nigel guitar processor and Pultec EQ will also be available free to registered Macintosh users later in 2002. The initial release will ship at the end of this month with support for the VST format. Support for MOTU will come later in the year. The UAD-1 with Powered Plug-Ins sells for $995.
