If you are using PT9.0 with a UAD card and plugins you owe it to yourself to download the new UAD 6.0 release. The plugins are now all RTAS compatible. The implementation was great with all of the RTAS plugins replacing the corresponding wrapped versions and preserving all the settings in sessions where they were in use. (At least that's the way it's supposed to be and that's proven to be true on the two songs I've checked so far.) There are supposed to be some exceptions, but they don't apply to any of the automation that I've done on previous songs so I can't check. The new plugins look interesting. (I had not looked at Brainworx dl-digital V2 Eq before. It's available native.) But I'm going to play around with the RTAS upgrade before playing with new expensive toys.
