Universal audio will NOT do AAX dsp!

I was just speaking to one of the UA reps at NAMM about AAX dsp and he said they have absolutely NO plans to offer AAX dsp versions of their plugins.

I'm glad I have not wasted my cash on this dying platform.

Why would they if they have their own DSP? I can see AAX versions that still address their DSP, but AAX versions that use Avid's DSP makes no sense for them.

I think whenever a thread's topic is something a product cannot do, it automatically goes to the Moan Zone.

Hi Chris just to clarify I was referring to HDX, I am a uad2 owner and hd native card, wondering about HDX but seems it will offer very little benefit to me as none of the plugins I would like to use are offered in dsp HDX versions

If you don't do large scale tracking, it very possibly doesn't.

UA stopped making DSP powered plugins for anything other than their own architecture about 5-6 years ago!

Dying platform? I'm seeing signs of new life. If anything, UAD's having babies lately.
1) used in Apollo which is one of the best all-round deals out
2) the plugs are being ported for AAX which is a huge improvement over UAD's life in Pro Tools up to now which has involved large delay times for VST wrapping.

Half empty or half full? I run almost entirely UAD2 plugs and just use native PT10 w/ Aurora converters (use AES card, very important) so my Avid investment is at a minimum. Spent some $$ on an SSD and my system runs WAY faster/smoother than it ever did on my old HD rig... Then again, I don't run film scores or 90 track mixes, etc. Seems anyone who actually needs the power of HD now, and not just a super native rig (heck mine's only on a 2006 mac pro, worth about $400 now) should be making enough money that it's no big deal to get an expansion bay if you need some HDX cards + some UAD2 cards. Then again, maybe it's just cause I can't picture myself mixing HUGE sessions just for fun or a side gig.
