  • The UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt OCTO Custom Core from Universal Audio is a DSP accelerator that allows for accessing UAD plug-ins within any DAW software running on Thunderbolt 3 equipped Mac and Windows computers. It's also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 or 2 if you have the appropriate cable.

    Powered by eight SHARC processors, the standalone DSP accelerator provides extensive plug-in instantiation for large mixes without taxing the host computer, and while delivering world-class analog emulation. The Custom edition goes a little further: it gives you three additional UAD plug-ins of your choice, provided you download them within forty days of your purchase.

    Other benefits of the Thunderbolt 3 equipped DSP accelerator include greater UAD plug-in instances (the interface requires less of its own DSP to function when compared with previous versions), improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency. Additionally, the unit can supercharge existing Apollo interfaces and other UAD-2 DSP Accelerator systems by creating expanded systems for running complex mixes.

    Included with the unit is the company's Analog Classics bundle, featuring the UA 610-B Preamp and EQ, along with legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier, Fairchild 670 Tube Limiter, Pultec Pro Equalizers, UA Precision Enhancer Hz, CS-1 Precision Channel, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins.
