The UAD 2 Satellite USB Octo Core takes effects processing away from your computers processor and into the UAD 2 Satellite so you can run more effects and record more tracks at once with much lower latency. This device can then be used in conjunction with any of a wide range of UAD effects which then don't take up any power away from your Mac and all of the effects processing can be handled by the UAD 2. Because the UAD 2 is taking away the processing from your computer you can record more tracks at lower latency without having to worry about your computer or interfacing falling over.

Over 90 Effects available for UAD

There are a load of great effects that can take advantage of the UAD system and its authentic analogue replication. With plugins available that model devices from DBX, Lexicon, SSL, Roland, Neve, ENGL and more this system delivers some of the best software emulation of analog hardware around even to the small nuances of the pots and faders you would find on each device.

The Power of The Octo

This version of the UAD2 Satellite Thunderbolt is the Octo model meaning that it has 8 processors inside ready to handle all of your effects processing needs. With enough to power to handle even the largest of studio sessions, although every session may not use all the power in this system you will be happy to have the power when you do reach those larger sessions with no slowdown and still near zero latency.

The Core Software

Each version of the UAD 2 Satellite Thunderbolt has a software package that comes with it. This particular version comes with the core software which contains the Analog Classics Plus Bundle with 8 high quality effects to get your started with UAD.
