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.

What is your opinion of this product?
Would have given 5 stars, but it doesn't come with cable to hook up. I did my research and had the cable here & ready for when this arrived. Having a blast with my new gear. UA also gives you plugins to get great sounds. I'm happy

Great idea, almost perfect execution. Almost.
What is your opinion of this product?
Sounds great, great features, fantastic build quality. It only has one flaw, DSP. Not NEARLY enough DSP to be really useful. I thought it would use the DSP from my UAD-2 Octacore, but it doesn't. I can get one channel strip, maybe 1 compressor and if everything is perfect, a reverb (low DSP, NOT the one I want). On only one channel. I make it work because I don't record the reverb and I skip the compression but it really does limit the usefulness in a major way. While a quad or an octacore option would be fantastic, even a duo would be a major upgrade. A duo I could work with it. As it is, I use it for vocals to get the unison channel strip feature and my PreSonus Studio 192 for everything else.

Songwriting Tool
What is your opinion of this product?
Great tool for writing and comes with 14 day trial period for plugins not included. Best guitar plugins are made by Brainworx but are not included with the interface and somewhat pricy unfortunately.
