About the UAD-1 (PCI) & UAD-1e (PCIe) DSP Card's
At the heart of every UAD DSP Card & Powered Plug-Ins bundle is the same revolutionary UAD DSP technology. Because of its high resolution, floating-point processing, ultra high-speed memory and hardware dithering, the UAD-1 delivers outstanding high-headroom sound quality at sample rates from 32 to 192kHz. Unlike other DSP cards, the UAD-1 uses a single, unpartitioned vector processor, allowing for larger and more sophisticated plug-in algorithms. These algorithms offer a new level of power and complexity not found with host-based plug-ins. By reducing the burden on the computer's CPU, the host DAW application can deliver more tracks, automation and native effects or instruments.
