    I'm back (now with UAD2)

    Greetings all. I've been away awhile.. mainly because I put my music on the back burner for a little bit.. but also because I had 3 UAD1 cards.. and the new updates SLOWLY went to UAd2 and eventually phased out UAD1s competely. I ever heard the newer updates would even render the UAD1 cards useless.

    In any case I'm back... but with work soon beginning on my new in home studio.. I've decided to replace my ancient UAD1 setup with some UAD2 love. I picked up a SOLO a couple of days ago and installed it and ordered me a DUO which is on the way. =) I've been bitten by the bug already. I managed to get all my plugins auth'd for the UAD2 SOLO card.. so some questions if I could please...

    * I have 3 UAD1's and now a UAD2 SOLO in group 1. All my plugins are properly authorized... but with a UAD2 DUO on the way.. and with my planning to remove the UAD1's from my DAW.. so I need to remove the UAD1's from Group 1 first.. BEFORE installing the DUO card? Or will the DUO still "FIT" in group 1 with the other 4 cards.. I thought I read something somewhere where you can have FOUR UAD1's and FOUR UAD2's in the same group. Just wondering.. but the UAD1's will no longer work once I update to the latest 7.1 software correct? I'm running Win8 x64.

    * I have the original 4k Buss Compressor in my plugin list... and SEE a voucher for the $50 "change" over fee to the "official SSL" version. How do I use the voucher to update my plugin to the SSL one (with the voucher it's a free upgrade?)?? I can't find info anywhere on that process.

    * Is there an "upgrade" pricing for the 1176, LA2A and Pultecs to the "new" versions. I have all the original versions.. or will that pricing AUTOMATICALLY show up in my cart when I add them?

    * FYI. with the current promo I was TEMPTED to go with THREE SOLO's because of the $299 voucher..I would have come out ahead in vouchers that way instead of getting a SOLO/DUO or even a QUAD.. but went SOLO/DUO instead.. =) Do all the cards "come" with a $50 voucher in the box?? I got $50 with this SOLO. Maybe the DUO also has a voucher?

    Now I just need to learn to mix again.

    But I'm excited by all the new and exciting plugins that await my discovery.. =)

    Rock on!

    Welcome back to the fold.

    I believe you can have up to four 1 and four 2's in a group, but I can't look at mine right now, as I'm nowhere near a computer.

    Thanks guys... I saw the new "quotes" for the Pultecs, LA2A's and 1176s... cool!! Still haven't figured out how to update my 4k Buss Compressor to the SSL version. It shows the voucher code to do it.. but can I only do it when I buy something else?

    I could be wrong, but wouldn't it be that you put the SSL compressor in your shopping cart (will show full price) and then when you checkout you add the voucher code and it will bring the price down for you then?

    Yes, that is what will happen... I was thinking there was an upgrade option to add to the cart instead of the code to give me the compressor at $50.

    You can have 4 UAD-1 + 4 UAD-2 per hardware group for plug-in licensing purposes. Since you already have a UAD-2 SOLO registered into that group sharing licenses, you can just take the UAD-1 cards out and start with a new slate with the SOLO & DUO combo. Once you install the latest UAD-2 versions the UAD-1's will be rendered useless anyway.
    I believe the last UAD-1 compatible update was way back at v6.1 (or there abouts). We are at v7.2 right now. Just make sure when you are registering your new DUO that is it placed into the exact same hardware group that the SOLO is in, so you can share plug-in licenses. A common mistake is allowing a new card to be placed into a new hardware group. At that point, you will need to contact UA tech support directly to sort it out.

    Cheers,
