UAD1- compatable with Pro Tools LE? new
      #49667 - 14/11/04 06:47 PM
I am considering buying a Universal Audio with my digidesign system but am wondering if it will work with pro tools le- has any one or is anyone using one with there pro tools set up? I think i read somewhere that you have to use some kind of adapter plug in?

You've probably read about the FXpansion RTAS to VST adapter. As far as I know it's the only way to take advantage of UAD-1 plugins in PTLE environment.

Yes, does work. Lots of latency though because as you know PT doens't have auto delay compensation. Othwerise work fine using the Delay Compensator plugs. Also, yes, you do have to use the RTAS-VST plugin which costs about £60, but I believe you do get a stripped down version with the UAD card which you can use *only* with the UAD plugins.

Hopes this helps

Cheers guys- sounds good although i don't like the bit about the latency! What about the tc powercore element? Would have to get a bigger case if i was to get the tc powercore though hehehe. Why are there prices so closely matched when the tc looks like it has far more horse power than the uad1- is it because the uad1 has better plug ins or because there better coded to use less dsp? Sorry to complicate the matter

Rule of thumb is powercore has the better effects, UAD1 has the better dynamics.
