The World's Most Authentic Analog Emulation Plug-ins
Want to shift your music production into high gear? The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 will do just that. This is the QUAD model — four SHARC processors deliver a massive level of DSP, enabling you to pack your mixes with the world's most authentic analog emulation plug-ins. What’s more, this DSP accelerator’s Thunderbolt 3 connectivity gives it sub-2ms latency and enough bandwidth to build massive daisy chains of Thunderbolt-equipped devices. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 includes UA’s Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, and you can access over 90 optional plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Studer, Neve, and more. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 sports updated cosmetics with a convenient front-panel power switch and eye-catching backlit UA logo.
Note: The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 requires a Thunderbolt 3 cable (not included).
Portable UAD plug-in power
The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 not only includes UA's Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, it also provides you access to more than 90 plug-ins from brands including Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, Fairchild, Pultec, Studer, SSL, and more (sold separately). This desktop-friendly unit connects to your Thunderbolt 3-equipped computer, turbocharging your Thunderbolt-based studio with the most authentic analog emulation plug-ins on the planet.
Thunderbolt 3 — ultra-low latency and unrivaled bandwidth
When Thunderbolt technology burst onto the scene, UA was one of the first to adopt it. And now, thanks to Thunderbolt 3, this blazing-fast connectivity is better than ever. For starters, it offers lower latency and greater stability than USB or FireWire, clocking in with the speed and ultra-fast performance of a PCI Express system. In fact, the UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 runs projects with high track counts at latencies of less than 2ms! On top of that, its near-infinite bandwidth blows Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 out of the water, enabling you to place multiple Thunderbolt-equipped devices — even 4k or 5k monitors — at the end of your signal chain without issues. You don't even need a brand-new computer — the UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3’s two built-in Thunderbolt 3 ports are backward-compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2 (adapter sold separately).
