I don’t think I would buy into a UAD DAW. I bought Harrison years ago and never used it. I bought Cubase and still haven’t installed it. Switching and learning DAW’s is a pretty big deal to me. It would have to be revolutionary, super stable and a cut above everything else. And I wouldn’t want it to be tied to hardware.
I have a hard time thinking they put the years of resources necessary into developing their own full-fledged DAW. If they did though I’d absolutely try it. UA has some great creative talent and God knows Avid is doing their damnedest to push us PT users away.

So.. Tape.. It records. 8th channel of a mixer.. it sums.
They already have tape effects so, guessing, it ain't that.
I'd guess it's a UA DAW with 8 summing channels. I'd hope it would eventually be a lot more, but this could be pretty cool. Especially if it could prevent the use of a computer!! I HATE dealing with computers and software constantly (not why I got into music). Hopefully it's like a Radar system, but with more channels.
Track with UA plugs on the way in (if you like / know what you're doing / have balls) to a UA DAW / computer thingy. Do edits, comps, o'dubs, mix, etc, then sum out (it would have to have hardware inserts or I am totally not interested) to what you like come mix time into ?.. back into the UA DAW?
It's really kinda amazing that a company hasn't done the Radar thing on a more modern / formal level. Berry retired fro Radar and there isn't much confidence in it continuing as the same powerhouse of support / service. UA could dominate this market from the gate.
Dedicated UA multitrack recorder, mixer with 8 summing channels, and the ability to insert 12 or so channels of external gear $9k Same thing doubled $14k
If it can't insert real hardware I would have zero interest. I have a massive amount of hardware and it ain't going anywhere anytime soon. I'll make a whole album and only use a little DAW eq, but a ton of real outboard gear.
