end of an era (was: Considering selling my UAD2 quad with '$5.5k' plugins....)

Any thoughts on how much this is worth?

I dont get hardly any time to do stuff these days what with being a responsible parent (Teef) and also getting more into hardware.

The plugins are allegedly worth around $5.5k list price from the ua website which is highly optimistic, and have no idea which ones are free these days... Sure the CS channel strips always been free. The little Pultec? So maybe about $5k. Either way.

I appreciate ill get nothing like that, with vouchers etc i didnt pay that much, but god only knows how much I have spent Oops a shedload. Been thru 3 uad1s, a uad2 duo and now a quad.

Any thoughts?

Cheers, ben

Hi Ben,

I am going through a similar process where i get more into hardware and less into software. However, when it comes to mixing down and the mastering chain i would think youre probably best off with your uad gear,
besides that, what dsp says - you probably will get a fraction of the cost.
Keep them!

Thanks, but no :S

Im completely into hardware now and just dont get the time to play.

Im selling everything PC related (that i can, some fuckers wont let you sell the property i bought! yet another reason to go hardware*)

Swapped my launchpad for a QY700.

Buying a huge old soundtracs dub desk.

I might lose some fidelity but completely getting vibes, and most importantly enjoyment back out of it.

For example. Rough, bit meandering but really cool (IMO). 100% live thru the desk, no edits, arrangment, post processing, just the boxes, a desk and some super cheap FX.


Well, thats it. Gone. End of an era.

I got £1600 cash for it, fwiw. An absolute steal, a new neve only quad is about that, so he got every other plug for free. But a quick, cash in bank trasnaction. No paypal or ebay fees either.

Im now going to buy an Alesis HD24 24 track digital multitrack, and hopefully an alesis andromeda BADBOY analogue synth.


A new beginning.

Cheers, Ben
