Flexible connectivity

The desktop UAD-2 Satellite comes with three different types of data transmission connectivity, including Thunderbolt for Mac and Windows 10 systems, USB 3.0 for Mac and PC, and FireWire* for legacy Mac and PCs. It also comes in the form of a user-installable PCIe card for desktop towers or PCIe expansion chassis.

*Available only on QUAD-equipped Satellites

 SHARC processors

The UAD-2 Satellite USB QUAD includes four SHARC processors. Analog Devices’ SHARC processors are the premier real-time floating-point DSP processor for applications that require a wide dynamic range. They feature exceptional core and memory performance, outstanding I/O throughput. Additionally, the Satellite’s USB 3.0 SuperSpeed technology offers reduced plug-in latency compared to FireWire 800.

Combine Satellite with other UA devices

UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt is available in QUAD or OCTO models with either four or eight SHARC processors, respectively. It can also be integrated alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards and Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo interfaces, including Apollo Twin, DUO, QUAD, and 16 for truly scalable mixing power.

UAD Plug-In craftsmanship

In developing UAD plug-ins, UA’s engineering group meticulously recreates classic analog gear via physical modeling that literally rebuilds the unit component by component in the digital domain. With UAD-2 plugs, you have to treat them as you would actual analog gear in terms of how you apply signal. For example, you can “hit” them harder for more saturation, or back off for cleaner response. UAD plug-ins replicate the exact, sometimes quirky, behavior of analog hardware, bringing its rich, three-dimensional sound and harmonics “inside the box.”

Who’s Using UAD-2 powered plug-ins?

With an extensive and ever-growing list of professional and amateur users, some of the audio luminaries who use UAD-2 powered plug-ins as an irreplaceable part of their process, include 11-time Grammy winner, Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk, Eric Clapton), Joe Chiccarelli (Jason Mraz, Beck, The Strokes, Morrisey) Ryan West (Eminem, Kanye West), Darrell Thorp ( Beck, Radiohead), Jaycen Joshua (Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Jay Z), Vance Powell (The Raconteurs, Jars of Clay), and many more.

*Purchasers must select all 3 individual Custom Software Bundle plug-ins simultaneously, within 45 days of product registration. Purchasers failing to select all 3 plug-ins within 45 days of registration will automatically receive 3 UAD plug-ins of UA’s choosing, free of charge (but no more than 3 Custom Software Bundle plug-ins total). See www.uaudio.com for complete details.
