uad card question
      #1040000 - 26/03/13 07:55 PM
Hey peeps

I currently own 1 uad 2 solo card on my pc and cos I love the plugins so much I am now finding that I am regularly reaching my limit as to how many instances of plugins I an can use.

With this in mind I obviously need to buy another card, my question is, should I maybe save up my pennies and invest in a duo card or can I get away with buying another solo. The solo option seems a bit of a waste of time though considering the cost vs additional power...

thoughts?

thanks muchly

charlie

Well in theory if you can afford a duo instead of just a second solo card, you will be able to run three times as many plugins as now, instead of just twice as many (assuming you have a spare slot alongside your exsiting card), so seems like a good idea, but....

It's great that UAD have recently reduced the price of their DSP cards, and introduced the massive Octo card, but interestingly the Duo is actually more expensive per processor than the Solo! So either buy *two* Solo's, or go even further (flog your existing Solo?) and spring for a Quad!!

Could someone tell me what the difference is with the ordinary card and the Solo/Duo, does solo mean you can only run one instance at any one time? eg 1 plugin - to one track and that's all?

Solo has one chip, Duo has two chips, Quad has four chips etc.

More chips mean more DSP power to run plugins.

Yep, the actual number of instances of each type of UAD plugin you can run on each of the different DSP cards is shown in this table:
