The Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack is a 16-channel MADI effects processor providing real-time access to UAD plug-ins with Thunderbolt-equipped Macs.

Universal Audio's acclaimed plugins have provided the polish to many music productions, giving musicians and engineers the characterful sound of analog gear without the associated size, weight, maintenance costs and room-filling dimensions. The UAD-2 Live Rack is designed to bring that same processing power and convenience to the live stage, giving you real-time access to industry-leading UAD plugins, right out of the box. Up to four UAD-2 Live Rack units can be combined for up to 64 channels of MADI signal processing in one rig.

To enable this much audio capability, the Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack Core is powered by Realtime UAD QUAD Core Processing and it comes complete with a generous suite of UAD plugins, including legendary 1176 and Teletronix  LA-2A compressors and Pultec EQs. The UAD-2 also features the iconic Antares Auto-Tune Realtime plug-in which is renowned for its ability to polish vocal performances on the fly, without any discernible latency.

The Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack, Ultimate takes the audio shaping capability even further with its collection of over 90 UAD plug-ins, featuring exclusive titles from SSL®, Studer,® SSL,® Neve,® Manley,® Lexicon,® API,®  Fender,® Moog,® and many more.

The UAD-2 Live Rack is designed to integrate with your Mac through the Live Rack Application. This piece of software enables you to intuitively organise your channels and effects, with a clear visual indication of the whole signal chain and a simple user interface featuring drap/drop and copy/paste functionality. The Live Rack Application also enables the storing and recalling of presets, along with MIDI support and networked software integrations with select Soundcraft Vi consoles.

For peace of mind during live shows, the UAD-2 Live Rack is designed with several fail-safes. A backup power supply is automatically enabled if the primary supply fails and, if the Thunderbolt connection is lost, the audio is maintained in its last-known state.

Previous UAD customers will find that that their plugin libraries are fully enabled through the UAD-2 Live Rack, and modern mix engineers will appreciate the unbelievable amount of processing power and sonic sculpting abilities that such a compact unit offers.  What may have previously taken up a fridge-sized rack unit can now be stored in a 1U space, giving you the ultimate portable setup for live performances.
