Universal Audio Releases UAD-1 2.3 Software

Powered Plug-Ins get dual-processor support on MAS and VST systems By Dave Nagel
Universal Audio has released version 2.3 of its UAD-1 software for Macintosh. UAD-1 is a PCI-based DSP card that includes a set of plugins tailored specifically for the card. The new version of the UAD-1's software allows these plugins, called "Powered Plug-Ins," to take advantage of dual processors on Macintosh systems.

The latest release offers dual-processor support for Mark of the Unicorn's MAS format and Steinberg's VST format.


"We've supported dual processors on the Windows 2K/XP-Pro platform since our first Windows 2K/XP drivers became available," said Universal Audio VP of Engineering Joe Bryan, in a prepared statement. "And the combination of Apple's focus on dual-processor Macs, with the desire by users to run lots of native plugs along with the UAD-1, made Dual Processor Mac support critical.  There a lot of Mac folks out there who have been waiting for this release."

The 2.3 update is available for free from Universal audio or Mackie, which distributes UA's products. To download the update or learn more, visit http://www.mackie.com or http://www.uaudio.com.
