since the latest UA update, do you still have problems?

apart from those PCI X compatibility stuff.
I'm planning to buy a single G5 processor with standard PCI slots.

thanks for reply.

I used to have problems with a mbox. With HD 2 accel, UAD-1 works really nice! On a G5 dual 2 Ghz.

No problems at all here - G5 Dual 1.8 (standard PCI) with 828MkII and 1 x UAD-1

I have no crash/crackle problems with 2 UAD-1's on a G5 Dual 2.0, with PCI-X...

The only issue is that the UAD plugs take up a lot of processor load... I usually have to freeze all my tracks with many cpu demanding plugs (space designer, guitar amp, software synths etc) but i have no stability issues specially in the later releases...

how much do you gain with an extra UAD-1 in a G5?

I also have a G5 dual 2.0 GHz (rev. B) with a RME Fireface800 and Logic Pro 7. I still have 1 UAD-1, because I read so much problems with multiple UAD's on a PCI-X G5. You have a higher CPU load you say. Can you say how much more this CPU load is in comparison to 1 UAD?
Also, how much extra plug-ins can you run with a second UAD in your G5? I've read that this is also less than optimal in a G5(PCI-X).

Finally, what sequencer do you use and what soundcard?

Thanks for your info.
