Want to run bigger mixes packed with DSP-intensive plug-ins? Universal Audio's UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators give you a potent, portable solution for turbocharging your Thunderbolt-based studio. These desktop-friendly units connect to your Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2-equipped computer and provide access to UAD Powered plug-ins (the most authentic analog emulation plug-ins on the planet), including exclusive plug-ins from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, SSL, and many more.
Sweetwater knows that when you've got a monster project with a suffocating deadline, it's what's under the hood that counts. That's why Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators are available in QUAD or OCTO models (with either four or eight SHARC processors), letting you customize your studio horsepower to the demands of your workflow. They may also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe cards and Thunderbolt-enabled Apollo interfaces — including the Apollo Twin, Apollo, and Apollo 16, for truly scalable mixing power.
Thunderbolt is one of the most important technologies to impact audio production in years, and UA was one of the first to adopt it. Thanks to its blazing-fast connectivity, Thunderbolt offers lower latency and greater stability than USB or FireWire, clocking in with the speed and ultra-fast performance of a PCI Express system — but with the convenience of a single cable.
To get you up and running straight out of the box, Universal Audio offers UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt DSP Accelerators with Core, Custom, and Ultimate software packages. The Core package gives you the Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, while Custom adds a choice of any three individual UAD plug-ins at registration. The Satellite Thunderbolt OCTO Ultimate is Universal Audio's top-of-the-line package, with more than 79 UA-developed plug-ins (up to and including UAD software v7.8).
