UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3
UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3
I had to buy this to replace a UAD-2 Satellite TB Octo that failed
Support request unsolved since opening March 23, 2023. "Customer Service," and I use the term loosely, has not responded since March 30, 2023
Once I finally bought the satellite is when the light bulb went on....... (power switch).... now my mixes contain everything I need to get it done without DSP resources popping up left and right. At first I was hesitant but glad I upgraded my dsp chip count with a new box. Went from "WHAT.....THE.....f"or that time to now sayin YEEEEEAH after I got it. Hypersonic Speed Super Power with Laser like Precision. Now my music is like honey mixed with sugar, SWEEEEET!
Gives you that extra power for heavy UAD sessions
The positive side: I combined UAD-2 Satellite Octo T3 with my Apollo Twin X for extra power and easy workflow without losing power for my UAD plug ins, works really great and easy to use. The Negative side: UA must start delivering T3 cables with their products, especially a really short one for connecting between Apollo and Satellite. But the major thing I would do is to let the customer choose plug ins especially when you already have an Apollo and own most of the plug ins that comes in the analog classics.
Exactly what it says on the tin. More DSP. And lots of it. Simple box but works flawlessly.
Multiple crashes, Force Quits on Logic Pro X since getting Apollo/Satellite (after almost no crashes in 15 years of near-daily use.)
Ghosted by UA customer service, to the point where I wonder if UA even employs customer service specialists.
Yeah, the UA plug-ins sound nice … if and when they work.
Perfect combination for the Apollo Twin!! It’s incredible to see how more DSP’s make the whole difference in your sound. I also love the design of the UAD equipment!!!! The best part….. Works!!!!!!!!!!!!
Satellite octo is ideal for my project studio...I can work with all my plug ins. Universal Audio my best choice for my productions. Santi Scarcella
Works great! Allows me to use more UA plug-ins while mixing.
It's actually a 2nd hand Thunderbolt 2 Quad Satellite
Does what it says on the tin! :). Not the sexiest piece of gear I've ever bought, but integrated easily into my studio system and works flawlessly.
Great for more dsp for a home studio
As UAD plugin user, this is a must-have unit :)
I thought a lot before I bought the QUAD version, because I thought it wouldn't have enough power for my work compared to the OCTO version. My fear was unfounded, because it is a real powerhouse.
Tengo un octo y ahora un quad son la mejor inversión de mi vida! I love UA ✌️
Unleash your Inner Plugin Demon!
Once I figured out the correct button to push, this thing installed itself and started toiling away flawlessly in the background. I love being able to monitor my chip usage, and I can’t complain about the amount of available DSP power. It might take a help ticket to get you setup, but once it starts, it’s excellent. (Note that it provides mixing/post recording not tracking DSP.) Good job, UA!
Recently purchased a T3 UAD-2 Satellite Octo and so far I'm impressed. Before, just using my Apollo X8 to record, I was regularly running out of DSP. Now with the Octo Satellite connected, I've just completed a mix running up to 21 plugins, while using only 36% of available DSP. Better than I expected.
to use good quality plugin
Good looking work horse.
Does the job without complain. And looking good doing it!
Perfect solution to complement my Apollo Twin X.
Perfect solution to complement my Apollo Twin X. It has allowed me to considerably increase the number of plugins I can use simultaneously. The installation is very simple. Everything works perfectly. Another great point is that it takes up very little space on a desktop and I can put my Apollo Twin X on it. Which for me was important. Thanks to the whole team.
Plug-in number Cruncher.
Great price of kit. Handles my UAD plug-in processing leaving the computer free for doing over things.
Finally no more limit to Dsp !!! I can bring beautiful mix with the best UAD plug in !!!
A most have for anyone who want to sound professional !!!
