  1. Connect and power the UAD device

    Before installing the UAD software, connect your UAD device to your computer and then power on the device.

  2. Download the UAD software

    Registration and authorization is managed by the UAD software. Download the latest UAD software installer here: www.uaudio.com/download

  3. Install the UAD software

    Open the UAD software installer after the download is complete. The installer will guide you through the process. Be sure to restart the computer when prompted. 

    Note: If the "Firmware Update" prompt appears, click Load and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.

  4. Register your UAD device

    After restarting, your web browser will launch and connect to the UA website. You will be prompted to create an account or log in to an existing account (if not already logged in). Follow the instructions on the web pages to register your UAD device and claim the bundled UAD plug-ins.

    Note: If your web browser doesn't launch automatically, you can start the process manually by clicking the Authorize Plug-Ins button on the Plug-Ins panel in the UAD Meter & Control Panel.

  5. Authorize your UAD device

    After registration is complete, authorize your UAD device by clicking the Authorize Plug-Ins button on the Plug-Ins panel in the UAD Meter & Control Panel. On Mac systems, the system is ready for use once authorization is complete.
