UAD Spark Product FAQs

How many UADx plug-in instances can I run in my project?

Since UADx plug-ins run natively on your computer’s CPU, you may run as many UADx plug-in instances as CPU can handle.

I already own the UAD-2 versions of some of the plug-ins available in with UAD Spark. Do I get access to the UADx version?

Yes! If you own or purchase a UAD-2 plug-in that has been ported to UADx then you can get the UADx version for free. Simply download the title with UA Connect to begin using the native version. A UAD Spark subscription is not required to use these free perpetual UADx licenses.
