Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt Octo Ultimate 6 DSP Accelerator

The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt Octo Ultimate 6 DSP Accelerator gives you all 95 UAD powered plug-ins, combined with the high bandwidth Thunderbolt connectivity, perfect for any studio or live sound and mobile application.

The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt Octo Ultimate 6 DSP Accelerator is a sleek, powerful way for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and Windows 10 users to “supercharge” their systems and run larger mixes filled with acclaimed UAD plug-ins. This convenient desktop unit gives you full access to UA's award-winning plug-in library, including exclusive titles from Studer, Lexicon, Neve, and more. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt makes the perfect introduction to UAD plug-ins, or ideal DSP expander for Apollo audio interfaces.

With UAD Powered Plug-Ins, the actual processing is offloaded to UAD-2 hardware. This frees up your computer to do other things, like mixing audio and running samplers or soft synths. From rare tube compressors and equalizers, to vintage reverb processors and tape machines, UAD Powered Plug-Ins inject three-dimensional “out-of-the-box” analog sound to your in-the-box mixes.
