Get the incredible flexibility and sound of genuine UA conversion and access to the extensive UA library with this Thunderbolt 3-powered audio interface! The Universal Audio Arrow delivers class-leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD plug-ins so you can achieve truly great results in any recording situation. Home studios, mobile recording, singer-songwriters and many more will have everything needed and more to capture and create easier than ever!

Shape your recordings into records — with genuine UA audio conversion and a studio full of classic vocal, guitar, and mixing tools.
Featuring class-leading Universal Audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of built-in effects, Arrow puts album-quality recording on your desktop. This 2 x 4 Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered audio interface for Mac and Windows includes a generous collection of UAD plug-ins to record vocals and guitars through at near-zero latency — as well as acclaimed UAD studio mixing tools like classic compressors, EQs, and reverbs — for professionally polished tracks, right out of the box.

Unison™ Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations

Arrow’s Unison technology gives you the tone, touch and “feel” of world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amps. It includes the UA 610-B Tube Preamp, Marshall® Plexi Classic Amplifier, and Ampeg SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp plug-ins — and can be expanded with exclusive titles from Neve,® SSL,® Fender,® and more. The secret is Arrow’s unique hardware-software integration, which adjusts the impedance of its instrument and mic preamps to match the emulated hardware — for authentic analog sound unmatched by other recording interfaces.

Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing
Derived from Universal Audio’s award-winning Apollo interfaces, Arrow opens up a range of classic analog color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Featuring an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, Arrow lets you monitor and record through the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer setting. It’s like having a virtual analog studio that fits in a laptop bag.

The UAD library features more than 100 titles and offers everything from classic Moog filters to Ampex tape to Lexicon reverbs — with more being added every few months.* These are the exact same UAD plug-ins used on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Dr. Dre, Brad Paisley and many more.

Built for Musicians, Electronic Producers, and Songwriters
Arrow’s portable Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered design, robust all-metal construction, and class-leading audio conversion is perfect for musicians, songwriters, and electronic music producers who need UA quality in a compact package.

Amazing! Glad I upgraded

Product Review

I’ve been trying to get a new interface for the longest! I’m so glad I decided with the arrow! Def a major upgrade from my Mbox midi! It’s light weight and easy to use! I only wish it came with the cable needed.

AMAZING ACCESS TO UA PLUGINS ON A BUDGET!

Product Review

Solid build, easy UI, zero latency. Love it, so far. I realize now that I will want to expand, eventually, to a DSP satellite to run tons of plugins for mixes. It’ll be worth it even for demos. Classic plugins, great amp sims, too!

UAD Arrow, Best mobile Interface

Product Review

I’m so happy UAD made The Arrow because I’ve always wanted the convenience of have a UAD interface that was mobile. I currently have the MKii Quad Apollo, but it’s too bulky for a mobile set up. The Arrow is light and thunderbolt 3 bus powered. It’s perfect! It’s a solo core but it doesn’t bother me at all...I would recommend this product to any one that’s entering UAD for the first time, and if you you need a mobile interface! It’s perfect I’m so happy..Avoid the negative review because this product is fire I can’t wait for the mkii version of it. Hopefully it will have even more cores!!! Till then no complaints for The Arrow Mk1

Great portable UA Interface

Product Review

This is a great lightweight unit. Very fast responsiveness thanks to the thunderbolt 3 connection. Only drawback is the DSP load threshold isn’t very good. You’ll want to also buy a DSP accelerator if you use a lot of UAD plugins

This thing is amazing

Product Review

The arrow may be the lower end of their products but this thing packs a huge punch sound wise. The UAD plug-ins by themselves makes this interface awesome. I recently bought the manly massive passive. I’m so glad i bought this interface
