Due to the internal redundant power supply, UAD-2 Live Rack will continue audio processing even if one of the power supplies fails. If the Live Rack app or computer fails, or if the Thunderbolt cable isn't connected, UAD-2 Live Rack will handle the audio with the last plug-in settings you made. Also, if the Live Rack app is in "safe mode", it will prevent catastrophic configuration changes during the show.
