In this video for Pro Tools Expert, James Ivey (still in the company of Rich Rogers from Create Pro) puts 6 UAD-2 Octo DSP cards through their paces in a Cubix Xpander Elite PCI chassis.
In this second part of the test James and Rich are mixing a classic track in Pro Tools by the Alan Parsons Project that James re-recorded back in 2013. They are only using UAD-2 plug-ins but will they run out of DSP processing power before they achieve a mix they are happy with.
It's one thing doing a stress test on a system but it can often be quite another when the real world gets involved. Watch and listen to how they get on.
