Trident A-Range Classic Console EQ

Although I don’t have UAD card or any Universal Audio products, what I always do when Universal Audio releases new product (both hard and soft) is watching their demo videos. They sound good, and very well demonstrate what the product is for. Let’s check out the latest software for UAD platform, Trident A-Range Classic Console EQ.

New UAD plugins : Fatso and EMT250

July 30, 2009 Leave a comment

I’m always excited everytime Universal Audio (UA) releases new UAD plugin. I love to watch video demo from UA. Today UA releases version 5.4 software update for UAD platform together with 3 new plugins; Fatso, EMT250 and Neve 31102EQ. Video of the 31102 is not available yet, but the others are here.

I feel like watching an engineering documentary. It’s mostly about science, electronic and engineering. Furthermore, the quality of audio in every UA video is very good. Of course, they’re audio specialists. I’ve never tried UAD plugin but I’ve read a lot from magazines and websites about their stellar audio quality.

If I could have my own workstation for sound design in the future, UAD-powered DSP must be one of my important tools.

Did Apple hurt Universal Audio?

UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop

I read the news about Universal Audio’s UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop yesterday. It’s an interesting product to use on the go. 1-DSP chip in a pocket-sized ExpressCard to power up laptop is many people look for. No break-out box, no cable, no external power adaptor, these make perfect mobile solution. But, what has just happened to ExpressCard slot on MacBook Pro?

Early this month, Apple revealed (what they called) an upgrade of MacBook Pro line, comprise of 13,15 and 17-inch model. One of the changes presented on WWDC’09 stage is SD-card slot to replace ExpressCard slot in 13 and 15-inch MBP. So now there’s only 17″MBP has ExpressCard slot.

Let’s have a look in all images and videos of UAD-2 SOLO/Laptop in UAudio website, Apple’s MacBook Pro is showing everywhere. As we all know, Apple’s notebook is widely used in audio professional, and UAD-2 is aimed to this target as well. I realize it takes time to put any product into production. I’m curious about how UA feel once they watched WWDC’09.

Although I don’t know how high the target UA set for this product, I think the remaining of ExpressCard slot in only one model of Apple MBP effects UA one way or another.
