Please read below for answers to common questions regarding UAD Producer Edition, Studio Edition, and Signature Edition native plug-in bundles.
What are the differences between these bundles and UAD Spark?
If you prefer to own your UAD plug-ins, or are an Apollo/UAD-2 hardware owner, our Signature Edition bundle offers the best price on the most popular UAD plug-ins that you can own forever – the editions also include the Apollo/UAD-2 versions. If you prefer a subscription, UAD Spark is a growing collection of native UAD plug-ins at a low monthly price, with new plug-ins added regularly.
What are the plug-ins included in each bundle?
The plug-ins included in each bundle are listed in the table below:
UAD Essentials Edition Bundle
UAD Producer Edition Bundle
|UAD Studio Edition Bundle (33 plug-ins)||
UAD Signature Edition Bundle (44 plug-ins)
← Everything included in the Essentials Bundle +
← Everything included in the Producer Bundle +
← Everything included in the Studio Bundle +
Note: Collections include more than one plug-in.
I own an Apollo or UAD-2 hardware, is this for me?
Yes, absolutely, our new bundles provide tremendous value on some of our most popular collections of plug-ins, and native versions are included for the best of both worlds. Native UAD plug-ins also allow you to record and mix on-the-go without attaching UAD hardware.
If I already own some of the plug-ins in these bundles, is there upgrade pricing available?
For the current Producer, Studio and Signature bundles, we offer a cross-grade price that rewards ownership of one or more UAD plug-ins. This cross-grade price will automatically be displayed on each bundle’s product page if you are logged in with your UA account.
If you own one or more of the plug-ins included in the bundle, only the licenses for the plug-ins you do not already own will be issued.
Therefore, if you are in a situation where you are only missing a couple of plug-ins from a bundle, it may be more cost-efficient to purchase a Custom bundle and select the plug-ins you are missing from the bundle instead.
If I already own some of the plug-ins in these bundles, can I substitute other plug-ins instead?
No, our bundles are pre-configured and we do not offer the option to substitute plug-ins.
Will new titles be added to my bundles like UAD Spark?
No. When you purchase a bundle you’ll own those plug-ins forever. The Producer, Studio and Signature bundles include some of the UAD plug-in titles listed on this page.
Do you offer educational discounts?
Not at this time.
Are Unison versions included?
Yes, if you have Apollo hardware and the plug-in supports the Unison feature. Unison technology is a unique blend of hardware and software that requires an Apollo interface to truly emulate the unique input characteristics of the plug-in. Note that native UAD titles do not have Unison functionality.
Can I try native UAD plug-ins before I buy?
Yes, 14-day plug-in demos are available. Find eligible plug-ins on this page.
