UAD Plug-Ins and High Definition Audio

Some UAD plug-ins process audio at high sample rates internally, allowing replication of complex nonlinear behaviors such as distortion, saturation, and other classic analog characteristics. These UAD plug-ins incorporate a linear phase antialiasing filter that removes audio artifacts far above the audio spectrum in order to deliver the highest possible sound quality.

Note: The tables below list which UAD plug-ins use the linear phase antialiasing filter.

The audible frequency spectrum is generally recognized as 20Hz – 20 kHz, and the UAD antialiasing filter removes all audio above 30 kHz regardless of the session sample rate. This practice eliminates all audio artifacts, but may not be compatible with certain HD audio distributors that check for audio above 30 kHz.

If antialiased UAD plug-ins are used in HD audio productions (generally defined as audio with sample rates of 96 kHz and higher), either avoid using these UAD plug-ins on the master output bus, or use UAD plug-ins without the antialiasing filter on the master output bus instead.

Tip: When using any UAD plug-in that has a MIX control (such as API 2500, Fairchild 670, etc.), setting the MIX control to any value below 100% blends full bandwidth audio with the filtered audio — allowing antialiased UAD plug-ins to be used on the master bus for HD audio distributors.

For more in-depth information, see this article from Sound On Sound magazine.
