Fantastic interface, but setup requires tedious removal of unwanted demos

Davewaugh, 24.07.2017
Amazing unit, well built, great sound, great plugins!

So why 4 stars and not 5?
Installation will include all UAD plugins ever made, you will have to scroll through pages of these to find what you've actually licensed. Inserting a UAD plugin on the channel becomes a task, I'd like to open my plugin menu and see only what I've licensed, not the 300 other packages Universal Audio wants me to demo and purchase. This really gets in the way of workflow. I emailed UA to ask if there's a simple filter button, they directed me to the FAQ section on their site. Their suggestion was to hide each plugin from the DAW one by one. I therefore spent a good hour moving VSTs and AUs to an "Unused" Folder on my drive.

Other than that extremely happy with my purchase!
Make sure to buy a Thunderbolt cable, it does not come with one.

gorgeous lush open sound plus infinite possibilities for processing

Top quality sound card .
Highly addictive on line plugin store with exceptionally weird pricing policy. Prices change at random giving one the thrill (and disappointment ) of an on line audio casino.
Top quality virtual plugins .
Excellent headphone outputs.
Immediate integration withLogic Pro X .
Easy to use and configure.
A system that cannot be beaten!
Save and buy!
