New Features

Software Compatibility

  • This software is compatible with UAD-2 Live Rack and Soundcraft Realtime Rack.
  • This software is qualified with macOS 10.13.3 High Sierra.
  • This software is incompatible with UAD software for Apollo, Arrow, and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator devices. Important: If UAD software for these devices is already installed, you must manually remove the prior UAD software before installing the UAD-2 Live Rack software (and vice versa). For instructions, see this KB article.

Software Installation

  • MacOS requires that UAD software be explicitly allowed to load in the Security & Privacy pane within macOS System Preferences. For details, see this KB article.

Firmware Installation

  • UAD-2 Live Rack ships with manufacturing firmware. The firmware must be updated after software installation and restart for qualified operation.
  • UAD-2 Live Rack firmware updates must be manually triggered by opening the UAD Meter & Control Panel application after installing the software and restarting the computer (unlike UA Audio Interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerators).
  • When the "Firmware Update" prompt appears, click “Load” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the firmware update.
