UAd-1 In Pro tools LE test


Active Member
Running 1.07 vst2rtas 3.6 uad LE6.4 OSX.3.5

buffer settings 128 , minimuim , and 85 % cpu

Ok 21 tracks Delay compensation method was 1 buss with delay comp for all non uad processed tracks 6 delay comps used all

together , the other five from uad processed tracks that had less uad plugins than the highest one .

pretty cool here's what I got ( I used Bf76 instead of 1176LN I reccomend this for better performance )

naitive - 6 antares tube
1 mic modeller
1 d verb
6 bf76

UAd 1 - 6 pultec pro
1 Precision limiter
2 real verb pro
4 1176 SE
4 EX-1

UAD - 1 meter says 85 % roughly

I must say screen animation was slow But audio was fine

Though A tip for uad users If you get a freaked out native cpu save press space bar and revert to saved clears it up a lot

And I have a single processor g4 and a 001 and I think 002 dual processor g4 / g5 users will have significantly better performance ( obviously DUH )

Are you kidding? The BF 1176 isn't interchangeable with the UA 1176 LN, to my ears. I wouldn't use the BF 76 on a click track.

Wondering how you got your UAD1 card to work with 001?
My set up is G4 1.4/001/PT6.11/OSX10.3.2/1.2 gb RAM.
I get PCI buss errors.

I dont have my 001 anymore but Ill be more than happy to tell you what I know

I got 90 % using cubase with my 001

in LE I got less

I found that tweaking the buffer setting was necessary constantly

also MNt_nt thing y needs to be at 64

also I found one card worked better than 2 meaning in a 2 card system after 50 % I found less performance was inevitable

this is on a sp G$ so a dp results mmay vary ( or may not IDK )


Hey Mersis,
How did you find the vst wrapped performance of the plugs?
Any weird stuff happening?
Can you use your plugs audiosuite wise with fxpansion?

powerbook 1.33
pt 6.4 osx 10.3.7

i found it ok with 1 card . 002 might have better performance

I know when I got my fireface I noticed an increase over pci performance

you must carefully add plugins since adding too much would cause a jumpy mouse and system bogging down .

no audiosuite no but you can record any track to another in LE
Ok. Thanks man!
I'll just pick up Cubase and try to get it going with my 001 card.
I also have a Delta 44 so i could resort to that if that is a no go.
