Do UAD plugins cause latency?

Do UAD plugins cause latency?

Instead of putting UAD plug-ins in the DAW while recording, where they will cause latency, UAD plug ins can be loaded directly into Console where they can be monitored and/or recorded through with no noticeable latency at any I/O buffer size. For more information on Apollo products, Click here.

How many plugins can a UAD Quad satellite run?

Absolutely. You can combine up to six UAD-2 DSP Accelerators within the same system, depending on your available Thunderbolt/FireWire/USB ports and/or PCIe slots bandwidth. Doing so will let you run even more UAD‑2 Powered Plug‑Ins at the same time.

How many UAD satellites can you use?

Systems can contain up to four UAD-2 devices. By adding a UAD-2 Satellite to your system, you can “take your plug-ins with you” and mix your sessions in other studios, etc.

How can I lower my Apollo Twin latency?

Minimizing or Avoiding Latency in the DAW: LiveTrack Mode Click the microphone icon in the bottom left corner of the UAD plug-in window to enable this mode, which bypasses the host buffer size to provide you with the lowest latency possible.

How do I get more DSP on Apollo?

If you are using an Apollo Twin and are not using the ADAT inputs, you can head to Console > Settings > Hardware panel > Options, and switch the “DIGITAL INPUT” mode to SPDIF from ADAT to conserve some additional DSP. Keep in mind that UAD plug-ins require more DSP when working at higher sample rates.

Can I use UAD plugins with Volt?

Yes. Volt can work alongside compatible PCIe, Thunderbolt, USB (PC only), and FireWire versions of UAD-2 DSP Accelerators.

Does Apollo Twin have latency?

With Apollo, latency is basically indiscernible. With its onboard Realtime UAD Processing, Apollo can retain its low-latency performance even in large sessions, and you can leave your computer at a buffer setting that it can handle.

What is the UAD-2 Satellite and how does it work?

The UAD-2 Satellite can be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards and the UAD Apollo interface, for truly scalable mixing power. And because it’s portable, the UAD-2 Satellite lets you travel with your UAD plug-ins, wherever you mix on a FireWire-equipped Mac or PC.

Can I run uad1 and uad2 at the same time?

If you already run a UAD card, you can combine the power of a UAD2 Satellite with your PCI‑based UAD1 and UAD2 cards to allow you to run more plug‑ins at the same time.

Where can I buy UAD-2 plug-ins?

These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled packages, or you can buy UAD plug-ins à la carte from UA’s Online Store. The UAD-2 Satellite can be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards and the UAD Apollo interface, for truly scalable mixing power.

Do I need a PCI or ExpressCard slot for uad2 DSP cards?

Now all you need is a free Firewire port… Universal Audio’s second‑generation UAD2 DSP cards have been around for a while now, but until recently, you needed either a PCI or an ExpressCard slot to use one.
