Universal Audio Arrow Overview

  • 1Description

The Universal Audio Arrow is an interface designed for project-studio, home studio use, and on-the-road use. Connecting to your computer over Thunderbolt 3, the unit provides two combination XLR-1/4” connections for mic/line sources, as well as a 1/4" input specifically tailored for electric guitars and basses. Two Unison preamps are on hand, each of which lets you color the incoming sound through Universal Audio’s preeminent modeling plug-ins; so, if you want the sound of a Neve or an API on your guitar or vocal, you can purchase one of the company’s appropriate plug-ins and use them as you record, committing their sound to the resulting audio capture.

The Arrow sports two 1/4" output connections for your monitors, as well as a dedicated headphone output. Whether you monitor through your speakers or through headphones, you’ll experience a near-zero latency performance, meaning you can play through UAD emulations without the processing interfering with your performance or timing.

The interface, which is bus-powered over Thunderbolt, features a UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, giving you some dedicated DSP for operating the plug-ins. This unit is designed to be portable, with its all-metal construction and aforementioned bus-powering. Included with the Arrow is the Realtime Analog Classics bundle from UAD, whose specific plug-ins can be perused in the features section.

Please note, the Arrow requires a powered Thunderbolt 3 port on your computer in order to operate. To see whether or not your computer is compatible with the Arrow, refer to the manufacturer website for compatibility information.

    How much power does the Arrow use? How fast will it drain the battery of my new 2018 Macbook Pro 13"? I understand it will depend on what you're doing with your computer, but are we talking about half an our or 2 hours?
    Asked by: Serge
    One of our product specialists recorded for an hour off his Mac laptop's battery while using phantom power across both mic preamps. As you stated, it will depend on several factors.

    question

    Ive was told that this will only work with a Thunderbolt 3 computer and is NOT backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2. Is this correct?
    Asked by: Ross W.
    Hi Ross. That is correct. You will need a Mac or PC with Thunderbolt 3 to work with Arrow. Adapters will not connect a Thunderbolt 3 device to a Thunderbolt 2 computer. Thunderbolt 3 computers are backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2 devices, but Thunderbolt 3 devices require a Thunderbolt 3 computer.If you are looking for a Thunderbolt 2 interface, I suggest an Apollo Solo MkII. It's $200 more, but offers additional features and most importantly it will work with your Thunderbolt 2 computer.
