Universal Audio Arrow Audio Interface

Get the incredible flexibility and sound of genuine UA conversion and access to the extensive UA library with this Thunderbolt 3-powered audio interface! The Universal Audio Arrow delivers class-leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD plug-ins so you can achieve truly great results in any recording situation. Home studios, mobile recording, singer-songwriters and many more will have everything needed and more to capture and create easier than ever!

This compact 2x4 interface starts with esteemed UA conversion derived from UA's flagship Apollo interface range, to sonically outperform anything in its class. With its Unison technology and built-in UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, you can record through classic audio tools including the 610 Tube Preamp, LA-2A and 1176 compressors, and a genuine Marshall Plexi amp plug-in -- at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer setting.

Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations

Arrow’s Unison technology gives you the tone, touch and “feel” of world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amps. It includes the UA 610-B Tube Preamp, Marshall Plexi Classic Amplifier, and Ampeg SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp plug-ins — and can be expanded with exclusive titles from Neve, SSL, Fender, and more.

The secret is Arrow’s unique hardware-software integration, which adjusts the impedance of its instrument and mic preamps to match the emulated hardware — for authentic analog sound unmatched by other recording interfaces.

A Full Suite of Classic Studio Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, Arrow provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world's only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the Unison-enabled UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA's world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.

From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

Vintage Guitar and Bass Amps

For guitarists and bassists, Arrow includes Unison technology on its front panel instrument input -- giving you access to dead-on emulations of amps like the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe, Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier, Eden WT800 Bass Amplifier, and the included Marshall Plexi Classic -- all available at near-zero latency for songwriting and recording.

Access the World of UAD Powered Plug-Ins

Beyond the included Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins, Arrow lets you tap into the full library award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins -- including vintage EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Tape Machines, Auto-Tune and more -- in real time, and without taxing your computer's CPU. With exclusive emulations from Neve, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, Marshall, Antares, KORG, Moog, and more the creative possibilities are nearly endless.

Ready to Go

With its robust all-metal construction and bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 operation, Arrow is the only 'clutter-free' portable audio interface that truly delivers album-quality results. It's like having a virtual analog studio that fits onto any desktop, and easily travels in your laptop bag.

Features:

- Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3-powered audio interface with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion
- Record with class-leading A/D and D/A conversion - as heard on hundreds of hit records
- Track with near-zero latency through mic preamp and guitar amp emulations from Neve, API, Marshall, Fender, and more using Unison technology
- Mix with included UAD plug-ins like the Teletronix LA-2A and 1176 compressors, Pultec EQs, and more
- Create on-the-go with a sonically superior, bus-powered interface with rugged all-metal construction
- Arrow includes the 'Realtime Analog Classics' UAD plug-in bundle. Other UAD plug-ins sold separately

Overall: I am a spare bedroom recording hobbyist.Probably much like “most” of us. I’ve been doing this long enough to where the entry level interfaces don’t have the appeal to me anymore, yet I don’t need a UA Apollo 8 because it’s just me with some instruments, electronic drum set, and a friend or two once in a while.I couldn’t be happier! I get great clarity in my mixes and my instruments. Thanks to the awesome UA converters!I’ll sum this up for those that are doing their research much like I did...If you have thunderbolt 3 connectivity, it’s a no brainer. If you don’t plan on recording 5 piece bands at once, it’s a no brainer.If you don’t plan on using all of UA’s plugins, it’s got more than enough DSP power to get you where you need to be.I have a nice collection of software and VST Plugins so I don’t need to rely too heavily on UA’s plugins that will “tax” the DSP of the unit. If you plan on using their plugins on every single track that you ever record, well, then maybe consider an Apollo Twin Quad.But if you’re just looking for something with very low latency, great converters that are capable of producing a radio ready track then look no further and order this bad boy.Very sturdy, reliable drivers, and it’s fairly portable if that’s your thing. People that complain about it not shipping with a thunderbolt cable are clueless. Yeah it would be cool, but I’m also an adult, I ordered one for $20 on amazon and it was delivered the same day as the arrow.Get your life together :)Thanks zZounds!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
