Universal Audio now shipping UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerators

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized dealers worldwide. As the newest members of UA's UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of FireWire 800/400 - perfect for Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis.

uad2_satellite.jpg For the first time, the UAD-2 Satellites put the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library - including the popular Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, and SSL E & G plug-ins - within easy reach of select iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis; no PCIe or ExpressCard required.

Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite packages provide a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins, along with a processing "boost" for digital audio workstations.

"UAD-2 Satellite is the result of UA listening to our customers, and giving them a processing solution that is both elegant and powerful," added UA Senior Product Manager Lev Perrey. "Coupled with our roadmap of exciting new plug-ins, we anticipate this product expanding our 40,000-strong UAD user base significantly in the years to come."

Notable UAD-2 Satellite features include:

  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select FireWire 800- and 400- equipped Macs.
  • Compatible with modern Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 (or higher).
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more - without taxing host computer CPU.

There are five models to choose from:

  1. DUO (Core).
  2. DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
  3. QUAD (Core).
  4. QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
  5. QUAD Omni v5.7 (w/ 50 UAD plug-ins).

The complete line of UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators are available now with prices starting at $899 MAP USD.
