Quad-Core Processing Inside the BoxThe Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite QUAD uses four SHARC processors to drive professional-quality audio FX and plug-ins. Quad-core processing puts huge power behind UAD's true-to-life digital models of classic analog gear -- achieving warmth and tonal complexity that would traditionally require racks full of analog gear. With the UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Custom you can connect directly to your DAW station with a FireWire cable, and experience fast and powerful audio processing without taxing the processor on your computer.
Mac or Windows; FireWire or ThunderboltYou can connect the Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Custom to either Macs or Windows 7-compatible computers. You'll be able to start using it right out of the box with Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, and other DAWs. If your Mac is equipped with Thunderbolt ports instead of FireWire, you can use a Thunderbolt-to-FireWire adapter and still get flawless performance.
Customize Your Bundle: Pick 3 UAD Plug-ins...When you register your DSP Accelerator Satellite, you're given the choice of any three UAD plug-in titles from Universal Audio's online library. Here you'll find true-to-life digital emulations of Ampex, Manley, Lexicon, EMT, Empirical Labs, Neve, Roland, Fairchild, Harrison, Little Labs, Studer, SSL, and others! Oh, and if you've still got VST lust after selecting three titles, you can purchase more directly from the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library.
...Plus, Get the Analog Classics BundleWhen you fire up your Satellite, you can immediately access the included "Analog Classics" plug-in bundle, featuring Legacy reproductions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN / 1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifier, Pultec EQP-1A, Pultec Pro, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins.
