Realtime UAD Effects Processing, Purpose-Built for Live Sound

Live Sound Effects Server
UAD-2 Live Rack is a 16-channel Multichannel Audio Digital Interface (MADI) effects processor for crafting live mixes with Realtime UAD Processing and industry-leading UAD Powered Plug-Ins. Up to four UAD-2 Live Rack units can be combined for 64 channels of optical MADI signal processing. The system is controlled with a Mac computer via Thunderbolt and the Live Rack application, which is specifically designed for fast, easy, and safe operation during live shows. The Live Rack app is also optimized for touch control with a Mac-compatible touchscreen display. Built to withstand the rigors of live sound, users can chain up to four UAD-2 Live Rack units for up to 64 channels of MADI signal processing.
Each UAD-2 Live Rack unit has four SHARC DSP cores for UAD plug-in processing. UAD-2 Live Rack Ultimate includes over 90 UAD plug-ins, with exclusive titles from SSL, Studer, SSL, Neve, Manley, Lexicon, API, Fender, Moog, and many more. Configuration includes the Antares Auto-Tune Realtime plug-in, and existing UAD users can use their licensed UAD plug-ins with UAD-2 Live Rack.
Live Rack Application
With the Live Rack application, front-of-house engineers can take advantage of intuitive features such as drag and drop, copy and paste, keyboard navigation, plug-in zoom, and the ability to store and recall channel strip presets and/or complete setup configuration Snapshots. Designed for seamless operation in a live setting, the Live Rack app features large text and GUI elements making it easy to quickly tweak parameters. The Live Rack app also features MIDI snapshot recall capabilities as well as networked software integration with select Soundcraft Vi consoles.
Fail-Safe Features
UAD-2 Live Rack includes professional, fail-safe features for reliable live sound use. Redundant internal power supplies ensure that UAD-2 Live Rack will continue to process audio if one power supply fails. If the Live Rack application or computer fails, or its Thunderbolt cable is disconnected, UAD-2 Live Rack will still process audio with the last known plug-in state intact. And with the Live Rack app in Safe mode, destructive setting changes are prevented during a live show.
