Universal Audio announces UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced the new line of UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators, shipping Q2 2016.

UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators are a sleek, powerful way for producers and engineers to supercharge their Windows-based workstations and run larger mixes filled with rich, DSP-intensive plug-ins. These desktop-friendly units provide full access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins, including exclusive plug-ins from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, SSL, and more.

Available in QUAD or OCTO models with a choice of four or eight SHARC processors, UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators can also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe cards, UAD-2 Satellite FireWire, and the Apollo Twin USB desktop interface.

For an immediate out-of-the-box mixing experience, UAD-2 Satellite USB DSP Accelerators are available in Core, Custom, and Ultimate software packages. The Core package includes the Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, while Custom adds a choice of any three additional UAD plug-ins at registration. The Satellite USB OCTO Ultimate is UA's flagship package, and includes more than 83 UA-developed plug-ins — up to and including UAD software v8.4.

Key Features:

  • Run UAD Powered Plug-Ins via USB 3 on Windows-based PCs for improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced plug-in latency versus FireWire.
  • 4 (QUAD) or 8 (OCTO) SHARC processors provide a massive DSP boost for running large professional mixes.
  • Access over 90 plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Studer, Neve, Manley, SSL, EMT, MXR, and more.
