The UA Sound - For Less
Universal Audio have some of the best sounding professional audio interfaces available right now. With their clean clear preamps, professional audiophile AD/DA conversion and industry leading plugins, a UA setup is near the top of many producers and studio owners wanted list! Yet most of these units are powerful rack-mount systems designed for professional studios that need external power to run; not great if you want a compact and portable setup.
The Arrow features Thunderbolt 3 connection to both Mac and PC. This ultra fast connection offers near 0% latency recording and can fully power Arrow from your laptop without needing a separate power connection.
With a lean and mean feature set, you get all the best elements of Universal Audio interfaces for a more affordable price.
Record with legendary gear using Unison preamp technology.
The Arrow comes with 2 of Universal Audio's Unison Preamps, as found on the flagship Apollo interfaces. Similar to plugins recreating classic EQ's and Compressors, Unison technology enables you to record with the tone, touch and "feel" of the world's most sought after mic preamps and guitar amps with Universal Audio's detailed emulations. To make this happen, the Arrow features unique hardware-software integration, which adjusts the impedance of its instrument and mic preamps to match the emulated hardware. The result is an authentic analogue sound that stands out against its competitors.
In this price bracket, you'll struggle to find anything that comes close...
Realtime UAD Plugin processing
The Arrow comes with a fantastic collection of Universal Audio's prized plugin emulations, featuring classic emulations like the 1176 compressors, Pultec EQs, a Marshall Plexi amp and much more. These plugins sound sound so good that you'll want to put them on all your tracks!
With most interfaces you would be worried that using too many plugins will clog up the speed of your computer, so you would have to start committing and bouncing down tracks to fresh audio files.
The Arrow however features built-in UAD-2 Solo processing that handles the extra workload without stressing your computer. This means you can record worry-free with near-zero latency tracking using your new plugins.
