Bye, bye love...

After getting a macpro I had the intention to replace the two UAD-1's I had with PCIe equivalents.

But today, after selling the two cards, I feel more like I should give up with UA and its plugins.

It is not the sound, because I always loved the LA2A, Pultec, Plate140, etc... but I recall that one of the reasons why I bought the first UAD was not only the quality of its plugins, but also the DSP that multiplied the processing capabilities of the AMD desktop I had at the time.

I will be watching for news on a UAD-X card with multiplied DSP power, and there are some graphics cards manufacturers that have just developed a processor chip for graphics cards. Maybe UAD is looking in that direction? I hope so.

I will sincerely miss the great sound but also keep the faith in UA to provide a newer more powerful DSP platform in the near future.

All the best,

Pere Amengual


I understand how sometimes \"timing is everything!\" UA is \"betwixt and between\" right now, so these things will be happening. Happy trails, pedro, 'till we meet again! We'll send up a signal flare when the UAD-x hits the market.
