The World’s Most Authentic Analog Emulation Plug-ins
Want to shift your music production into high gear? The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 will do just that. This is the OCTO model — eight SHARC processors deliver a massive level of DSP, enabling you to pack your mixes with the world’s most authentic analog emulation plug-ins. What’s more, this DSP accelerator’s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity gives it sub-2ms latency and enough bandwidth to build massive daisy chains of Thunderbolt-equipped devices. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 includes UA’s Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle; plus, you can access over 90 optional plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Studer, Neve, and more. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 sports updated cosmetics with a convenient front-panel power switch and eye-catching backlit UA logo.
Note: The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 requires a Thunderbolt 3 cable (not included).
Portable UAD plug-in power
The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 not only includes UA’s Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, it also provides you access to more than 90 plug-ins from brands including Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, Fairchild, Pultec, Studer, SSL, and more (sold separately). This desktop-friendly unit connects to your Thunderbolt 3-equipped computer, turbocharging your Thunderbolt-based studio with the most authentic analog emulation plug-ins on the planet.
Truly scalable mixing power
That’s why the Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 is available in QUAD or OCTO models (with either four or eight SHARC processors), letting you customize your studio horsepower to the demands of your workflow. They may also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe cards and Thunderbolt-enabled Apollo interfaces for truly scalable mixing power.
Thunderbolt 3 — ultra-low latency and unrivaled bandwidthWhen Thunderbolt technology burst onto the scene, UA was one of the first to adopt it. And now, thanks to Thunderbolt 3, this blazing-fast connectivity is better than ever. For starters, it offers lower latency and greater stability than USB or FireWire, clocking in with the speed and ultra-fast performance of a PCI Express system. In fact, the UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 runs projects with high track counts at latencies of less than 2ms! On top of that, its near-infinite bandwidth blows Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 out of the water, enabling you to place multiple Thunderbolt-equipped devices — even 4k or 5k monitors — at the end of your signal chain without issues. You don’t even need a brand-new computer — the UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3’s two built-in Thunderbolt 3 ports are backward-compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2 (adapter sold separately).
