A total of 4 Live Racks can be combined to process up to 64 MADI channels, with each Rack hardware unit promising sub-2-milliseconds latency when running UAD plug-ins. On the software side, front-of-house engineers can utilise features like 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.


The UA2-2 Live Rack comes in both Core and Ultimate bundles, which determines the quantity and variety of plug-ins included, though each bundle will contain the UAD Antares Auto-Tune Realtime plug-in, which Universal Audio tell us will enable low latency pitch correction during live shows.

UA2-2 Live Rack Core features:

  • Generous suite of UAD plug-ins out of the box including:
    • Teletronix LA-2A
    • 176LN Compressors
    • Pultec EQs and more
