BEST INVESTMENT IN YEARS!!!

Product Review

I’m so glad I ordered this. Between the extra DSP and the additional plugins I got...PRICELESS. I use my SSL channel strip on ALL of my vocals and with the extra DSP power, I’m able to record and mix at 192k flawlessly

Love it

Product Review

This product is exactly what I needed. I hear horror stories of people running out of dsp but with this I had 40 plugins on my tracks and still had more than enough dsp left. The OCTO is what you need my friend.

Simple but effective

Product Review

This little box does exactly what you think. Plenty of processing power for stacking up UA plugs. I wouldn’t say I often work is massive sessions, but most of my sessions barely push the octo beyond 50% capacity. Do note however that it doesn’t add to the “real-time” processing of your console/unison preamps, which is fine for me already having an Apollo 8 BF quad. Anyways.. totally worth the money if you want to mix on the UAD plugin platform. Looks good too. Smaller than expected.

The Best Piece Of Gear I've Purchased Lately

Product Review

The Universal Audio UAD 2 Satellite, is by far the best piece of gear I've purchased in the lat year. It is also one of the most important pieces of gear in my studio. Being a film composer can be very hectic sometimes. Writing hours of music on tight deadlines, and sometimes not having the budget to pay for a mixer, or to record orchestra live and the UAD-2 remedies that. Since adding this to my workflow my mixes have sounded tighter, and punchier and more full. The UAD Plugins will make any sample library sound as close as possible to the real thing as well. The EQ and channel strips are incredible. Not only do they sound great with samples, they of course sound great with guitars, basses, drums, vocals and anything else you can throw at them. The sheer processing power of the UAD-2 Octo is incredible too, and will not slow down no matter what I throw at it. I am very happy with this purchase. I am also very satisfied with American Musical!

Work right out of the box. Can handle really big sessions without any hassle. It was connected with a Apollo Twin.

Worth the money

Product Review

Does what it supposed to. Already own the Apollo Quad but needed more power for larger session. Able to load large amounts of intensive plugins. Great buy!!
