Q. How can I install these wrappers?
A. m4l devices don’t have to be “installed”. Instead, you can just drag and drop the .amxd file into a track.
For convenience, you should save the devices in a folder and then add that folder to Live’s browser. That way you don’t have to drag the .amxd file to Live.
You can also save that folder in your User Library.

Q. What is a wrapper?
A. Basically it’s a m4l (Max for Live) device that lets you use a plugin without having to open the plugin’s window.
These UAD wrappers mimic all the visual behavior of the plugins. So the led lights will glow, the VU meter needles will move, the buttons can be pressed, the knobs will turn, and every other visual thing will be like the original plugins’ GUI.
Q. What are the advantages of using a wrapper?
A. You won’t have to open the plugin window every time you want to make a change or have any visual feedback. And you can always minimize the device by double-clicking at the top, like any other device.
Besides, you will be able to midi-map and automate all the parameters like every Ableton native device. Just by clicking on a parameter, the automation lane will change to that parameter.
Q. Do I need to own the UAD plugin in order to use the wrapper?
A. Yes. These are only wrappers. In order to use them, you need to own a license of the Universal Audio plugin. You can get their Spark subscription here: https://spark.uaudio.com/
Q. Are these wrappers the Native UADx plugins or the Hardware UAD-2 ones?
A. Both. For every plugin, you will find a Native UADx wrapper and a Hardware UAD-2 wrapper.
The wrappers included in this pack are:
