Product Description

Get the rich analog sound of UAD Powered Plug-Ins over USB 3 on Windows! The UAD-2 Satellite USB OCTO Core is Universal Audio’s most powerful DSP accelerator, giving producers and engineers access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins. This sleek desktop unit will supercharge your Windows-based workstation to run larger mixes filled with rich analog emulation plug-ins.

In creating UAD plug-ins, Universal Audio’s DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers — using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears — to give you all the warmth of classic analog equipment.

What is your opinion of this product?
It is a total power house. It provides me with ALL the extra power I need with my appollo twin usb duo blacklion. A total of 10 cores. I recently sold my UAD satellite quad because it was overkill. Great product! You will hear the sound of the UAD plug ins in my movies sitcoms and music....
