DAW Compatibility with UAD-2 Plug-Ins

UAD Powered Plug-Ins are compatible with VST, AAX 64, and Audio Units host DAW applications, and are widely used with a variety of major DAW software — including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, Live, and more.

However, due to plug-in host differences between DAWs — and our own rigorous testing standards — Universal Audio only officially tests the latest UAD software with:

  • LUNA Recording System
  • Apple Logic Pro
  • Avid Pro Tools 2023
  • Steinberg Cubase 12 and 13
  • Steinberg Nuendo 12 and 13
  • Ableton Live 11


  • UAD software is 64-bit only. 32-bit DAW applications are incompatible.
  • The most recent maintenance release of the DAW application is recommended.
