The Custom Bundle includes Analog Classics, but in addition allows the purchaser to choose any other three plug-ins from the company's extensive collection when registering the product. The UAD-2 QUAD Custom from Universal Audio consists of a short form PCIe (Express) card with four SHARC processors for use in either Mac or Windows based native audio workstations.
The card supplements the DSP processing of these systems, giving the computer's CPU more headroom and freeing resources for other functions that can include additional tracks, heavier mix automation, or the ability to use more native effects.
Analog Classics features four of the company's most popular plug-in emulations. The LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler features the sound of the classic electro-optical analog compressor, while the 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier is an accurate emulation of UA's legendary FET-based hardware.
