The Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Core is Universal Audio's most powerful FireWire DSP accelerator, giving producers and engineers full access to award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins on Intel-based Macs and Windows 7 PCs*. In creating UAD plug-ins, UA's DSP engineers work with the original hardware manufacturers -- using their exact schematics, golden units, and experienced ears -- to create fully authenticated plug-ins with all the warmth and harmonics of classic analog equipment.
Powered by four SHARC processors, the UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Core easily connects to Intel-based Macs and Windows 7 PCs* via FireWire 800, letting you run large, complex mixes, without taxing your host computer. Additionally, you can connect to Thunderbolt-equipped Macs via Apple's Thunderbolt-to-FireWire adapter.
