Amazing piece of gear
Great sound! Easy to work with and the unison technology it’s outstanding! Game changing!
Easy to use and great sound
Apollo Arrow game changer
Low latency for tracking guitar parts brought me to the Arrow, and Unison technology it hasn't disappointed. So many ways UAD plugs can add warmth and dimension on the way in, as well as for rough mixes.

The best solution for audio production
A card that easily becomes the heart of small and large recording studios. Solid, versatile, complete and incredibly responsive and bright. Together with the DAW software Luna and the bundled plug-ins it becomes a production center that is unrivaled in this price range.
I too was skeptical of only having one processor - but I wanted a portable bus-powered interface that would allow some UAD plugins to run without having to cart around my satellite quad, and this was the only option. Happy to report that it is very good, and as others have commented the sound is pristine (amazingly so much better than my Steinberg!). Recording with Console is a little fussy and I tapped out the processing power with only one compressor and one reverb, but those are minor complaints compared to the convenience, the sound, and the speed over Thunderbolt. This is a great unit, and UAD should figure out how to pack more processors into it and still have it be bus-powered.
UA Arrow Purchase
As a musician who has owned several audio interfaces dating back to the Mac G4 (or G5, I can't remember) I was a bit callous toward purchasing a more expensive interface than I had been using. My first real surprise was plugging it in and running a guitar through the included Marshall amp plug-in. The sound was amazing ... no, not just really good but amazing. The response of the amp was just incredible, no latency, really nice touch dynamics, great sound. I then delved into some of the other plug-ins for mixing, compressors, delays, reverbs etc., I was truly blown away by the richness of the sound. I finally had to ask myself why I had not taken this path before. For anyone who records music I can't recommend this system highly enough, it's like taking blinders off your ears.
Easy to use and sounds fantastic
The Arrow is my first audio interface, but I'm glad I chose it. The sound quality is excellent, and the High Z input is particularly useful. UAD plugins also seem to be much more effective than a lot of others I've tried, so I would really recommend.
Love it, love it, ...love it
Great interface, zero latency. I
Only have the free plugins so far, and I already love them. The TB buss power is very convenient for a solo songwriter. So far the solo core is enough for my recordings. This is definitely the interface for a songwriter/music composer that does not need more than 2 inputs.
Great little Portable Audio Device
Does what it needs to do, but a little short in effect power. The good news is you can overcome any hurdle by having a think about how to record. If its your only UA device then commit. I have 2 satellites in the main studio, so the arrow is only a portable device for writing. Then I would take what I have recorded and finish it in the studio... or record Vox, guitar etc... on the go. I love the fact it doesn't need a power supply, makes it very portable.
So far so good
I own an Apollo and love the console app. I got the Arrow for my laptop and so far it has worked perfectly. The sound is flawless. Perfect for a simple or smaller recording setup!
Universal Audio Arrow
Remarkable! I love it!

Easy to use and great sound
I used an M-Box v3 for years and had to find another converter after updating to Catalina. I'm an audio engineering professor and the Arrow has options that I haven't even been able to dig into yet that might be great for remote teaching.
Great audio interface !!!
Best audio interface for the price !!! I love it !!!
My Apollo to road!
The Arrow sounds great and is A all in one solution on my desk that does all a need it to do.
COOL FOR BEGINNERS
DECENT INTERFACE BUT NOTHING COMPARED TO TWIN X OR APOLLO X6 IN ANY REGARDS.
First UA product and worth every cent. Flawless for my use of it.
Just like the Apollo but better
Why better? Because it is smaller, faster, bus-powered and less expensive. There are a couple things I wish for though, an on/off switch and the ability to stack it with the Apollos I already have.
