The Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack Core is a powerful 16-channel MADI effects processor with realtime UAD processing for live sound mixing.


The Universal Audio UAD-2 Live Rack boasts a UAD Quad Core processing, allowing live sound engineers access to some of the best analogue emulation plug-ins available.


Designed for live applications, the Live Rack uses redundant internal power supplies ensuring the unit can continue to process audio even if one of the power supply fails. The UAD-2 Live Rack is also cascadable with up to four units working together offering a total of 64 channels of MADI processing.


The Live Rack application gives front-of-house engineers intuitive ways to manage their plugins with drag and drop, copy and paste, keyboard navigation, plug-in zoom as well as channel strip and snapshots storage and recall. Furthermore, it boasts MIDI snapshot recall capabilities and networked software integration with certain Soundcraft VI consoles.


The UAD-2 Live Rack Core ships with a generous suite of plug-ins including:


  • UA 1176
  • Teletronix LA-2A
  • Pultec EQs
  • Antares Auto-Tune Realtime

Existing owners of UAD plug-ins will also benefit from the use of their existing collection with the UAD-2 Live Rack.
