Too Much GAS
Oct 21st, 2018 01:51 AM   Edit   Profile  

....from Sweetwater. I am seriously considering biting the bullet and picking one of these up.

Ever since I upgraded my computer and version of Pro Tools a few years ago I have been a bit short on AAX plug-ins. I have the Sound Toys Bundle and they are great but I'm looking for some different analog emulations. I think the additional horsepower the extra processors will bring to the table is a big plus. This package comes with their Analog Classics Bundle which covers a lot of what I am looking for in the way of plug-ins. This package also lets you choose from 3 additional plug-ins from UAD when you register it.

Yes, it's expensive. $699 but, I can add to it later if needed.

As of yet I have not maxed out the processor on my computer since the upgrade but, I have come close and not really done any large track count mixes yet either. I know that will come sooner than later.

Anyone use this stuff?

I have an Octo and a quad. You should know that the latest emulations are quite processor heavy. I believe there is an instance chart on the UAD site.

I ran a quad for 4 years or so and depending on what you want to use and how big the session, one can definitely run out of DSP.

However, mine was $1000 back when it was first out.

699 isn't too bad.

They are great sounding analog emu's in most cases. I use them on every mix. Love the 1176 collection, the LA2A collection is good, and I really enjoy the Studer tape machine, ATR tape machine, Fairchild comps and the console emulations, especially the SSL and Helios.

If you want any more demos than what's available on the net just let me know.
