The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt QUAD Custom combines a powerful desktop DSP Accelerator with a Custom software bundle that lets you choose any three UAD plug-in titles at registration.* This sleek desktop unit is compatible with all Thunderbolt-based Macs, and can supercharge Apollo interfaces and other UAD-2 DSP Accelerator systems to run larger mixes filled with rich analog emulation plug-ins.

In creating UAD plug-ins, Universal Audio’s DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers — using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears — to give you all the warmth of classic analog equipment. The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt QUAD Custom includes four SHARC processors, and its Thunderbolt 2 technology offers reduced plug-in latency compared to FireWire 800.

The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt QUAD Custom comes with UA’s “Analog Classics Plus” plug-in bundle, and lets you select any three additional UAD plug-in titles from a world-renowned library that includes Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, Fairchild, Studer, SSL, and more (sold separately).
