It’s Time To Plug-in To Soundcraft

All Soundcraft digital consoles give you fantastic results with their Lexicon FX, BSS Graphic EQ’s and dbx dynamics, but sometimes you just want to use that vintage based plug-in that you love so much. Introducing the new Soundcraft Realtime Rack.

The Realtime Rack is a collaboration between Soundcraft and renowned plug-in manufacturer Universal Audio which provides users with industry standard UAD studio plug-ins for use with the Soundcraft platform.

The 1u Rack unit features 4 Shark DSP’s onboard providing 16 channels of low latency (sub 2ms) processing for all Soundcraft digital consoles featuring an optical madi card or port. Up to 4 units can be connected together on the same MADI stream to provide up to 64 channels of plug-in’s. The Realtime Rack also provides dual redundant PSU’s for piece of mind where power issues are of concerned and thunder bolt connections allow host control connectivity.

On the Vi platform, the Realtime Rack integrates to provide full cue/snapshot store and recall providing users with the ability to setup shows prior to the production and have full recall of all plug-in’s required.

Two versions are available: The Realtime Rack Ultimate Live with 74 plug-ins available, and the Realtime Rack Core Live with 14 plug-ins. Additional UAD plug-ins can be purchased any time from UA’s online store.

The UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform offers the world’s most authentic analogue hardware emulations and award-winning audio plug-ins. Powered by Universal Audio’s DSP Accelerator hardware, UAD Powered Plug-Ins deliver rich, analogue sound quality that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with native recording systems.

From rare compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines, UAD Powered Plug-Ins inject three-dimensional ‘out-of-the-box’ analogue sound to your mixes.
