Universal Audio Ships UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced worldwide availability of their new lineup of UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators, which allow Thunderbolt-equipped Mac users to "supercharge" their systems 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 titles 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 Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators can also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe cards and Thunderbolt-enabled Apollo interfaces, including Apollo Twin, Apollo, and Apollo 16 — for truly scalable mixing power.

For an immediate out-of-the-box mixing experience, UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 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 individual UAD plug-ins at registration. The Satellite Thunderbolt OCTO Ultimate is UA's flagship package, including more than 79 UA-developed plug-ins — up to and including UAD software v7.8.

Key Features:

  • Run UAD Powered Plug-Ins via Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 connection on Macs 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, Roland, Studer, Neve, Manley, SSL, EMT, Empirical Labs, MXR and more.
  • Includes Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, featuring the UA 610-B Preamp & EQ and Legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier, Fairchild 670 Tube Limiter, Pultec Pro Equalizers, UA Precision Enhancer Hz, CS-1 Precision Channel, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins.
  • Available with Core, Custom, and Ultimate 3 software packages.
  • Combine with other UAD-2 devices, including additional UAD-2 PCIe card (s) with a qualified Thunderbolt PCIe chassis, UAD-2 Satellite (FireWire), and Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo interfaces.
  • Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for convenient daisy-chaining of Thunderbolt peripherals.
  • Fan-free construction for quiet operation.
  • Compatible with Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, and more.
