Great Plugins and Super Easy to Use
Product Rating

Product Review

Years ago I purchased the UAD-1 when Mackie used to distribute them. When I switched to a computer format (Mac Mini) that didn't allow me to use a PCI I switched to other plugins. When I upgraded to PTHD a few years back I bought a PCIe caddy and then I decided to go with the Thunderbolt UA interface. This box works perfectly between my caddy with PT Core card and my monitor. This is probably good to know for many. The plugins that came with the unit are nice (SSL, Neve and API channels plus some freebies). I picked the most expensive plugs that I wanted as my free ones - A-800, Ampex and Lexicon reverb and have purchased a few others (Plate 140). All sound killer. I still use other plugs as well (SSL Duende, Waves Mercury, Eventide Anthology) but the UAD stuff is great for emulations.

The most important puzzle piece, to my puzzle!

Product Review

When I delve into UAD, I bought a Quad interface. Also on after, i started buying more plugins. Not knowing how fast my plugins would eat up the DSP’s... So, I added the Octo Accelerator to the equation. Not only did I get the accelerator, but I also got my choice of 3 plugins. That was the best thing I could’ve done. No matter how complex my mixes are, I never run out of DSP’s.

So Worth It, if you want to use UAD PLUGINS

Product Review

So if you wanna use UAD PLUGINS and don’t need an audio interface, well then this will bridge the gap. Hook it up download their software and Walla!!! I have a MOTU interface that I prefer to use which is plenty for now and have zero issues. The DSP on this beast is absolutely enough. I am able to use 3-5 UAD plugins on each channel on a 8-10 channel projects with no latency issues. Just to be clear, this is not an audio interface. Its a DSP accelator. I only wished I had bought this sooner.

Worth it

Product Review

If you use a lot of plugins when you mix, this will make a huge difference. I have not had memory issues since I hooked this bad boy up, which is very easy to do. With the free plugins that came with the purchase, I can say I am very happy. Highly recommendable.

Well worth the money and peace of mind

Product Review

Hands down one of the best products for plugins, best plugins on the market. The price alone can seem discouraging,but with the current rebate offer and 3 free plugins(Any plugin at any price-$350.00 free if thats what you want and so on) which practically pays for it self,plus the free plugins that come with it. Your computer will think you when doing massive mixes. Go deeper in to the rabbit hole with this amazing machine!

The octo satellite is a ridiculously awesome piece of gear. So much dsp power, such amazing plugins. And the ability to take it on the go easily and use a thunderbolt.
