Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite overview

  • 1Description

The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt OCTO Ultimate 6 is a desktop DSP accelerator that enables you to take your UAD plug-ins on the road for mixing on Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and Windows computers. Featuring eight SHARC processors, it supercharges your workstation and integrates with PCIe DSP accelerator cards or Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo interfaces, allowing you to run large professional mixes filled with rich analog emulation plug-ins, which are difficult or impossible to achieve with native recording systems.

The Ultimate 6 bundle comprises all 95 UA-developed plug-in titles up to UAD software v9.4. It features a library of authentic analog gear emulations developed in collaboration with iconic manufacturers such as Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Fairchild, Studer, Fender, SSL, Empirical Labs, and more, using their exact original schematics and experienced ears. With its abundance of EQs, channels strips, compressors, delays, reverbs, and more, the collection brings the warmth of classic analog equipment into your DAW.
