The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt QUAD Custom from Universal Audio is a DSP accelerator that allows for accessing UAD plug-ins within any DAW software running on Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 equipped Mac computers. Powered by four SHARC processors, the standalone DSP accelerator provides extensive plug-in instantiation for large mixes without taxing the host computer, while also delivering world-class analog emulation.

Other benefits of the Thunderbolt equipped DSP accelerator include greater UAD plug-in instances (the interface requires less of its own DSP to function when compared with previous versions), improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency. Additionally, the unit can supercharge existing Apollo interfaces and other UAD-2 DSP Accelerator systems by creating expanded systems for running complex mixes.

Included with the unit is the company's "Analog Classics" bundle, featuring the UA 610-B Preamp and EQ, along with legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier, Fairchild 670 Tube Limiter, Pultec Pro Equalizers, UA Precision Enhancer Hz, CS-1 Precision Channel, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins. And as part of the Custom Bundle, on registration the user can pick any three individual UAD plug-ins of their choice.

Note: Thunderbolt cable sold separately.

Purchasers must select all three individual Custom Software Bundle plug-ins simultaneously within 45 days of product registration.
