Wow - why did I not get one of these earlier? The ability to run so many more plugins just transforms my mixes. Thanks UA!

Works great

I was recommended to get the octo and I’m glad I did! I haven’t maxed out the DSP yet and the UAD plugins have been fun

I engineered in and managed a pro Pro Tools HD studio for years, with all top-notch gear, SSL board, great mics, pres and outboard hardware, Westlake monitors, etc., so I was spoiled and used to excellent sound for years. My home studio was never satisfying to my ears, so when I had to update I decided to go for a UAD, as several friends loved theirs.
I was not disappointed, for the first time I'm perfectly happy recording at home. Everything sounds just great. Hooking it all up and integrating it with PT was seamless, nothing crashes, and the plugins sound wonderful. Thanks for the bonus satellite unit too. My Apollo 8 Thunderbolt was worth every penny.

Seamless - I Never Think About It

I haven't touched, troubleshot or even thought about my UAD-2 Octo Thunderbolt Satellite in 2 years. It just works. This is hardware/software integration that way it should be. Comes with a thunderbolt thru port so you can connect other Satellites or hard drives. I wish all products were of this quality.

Big sound trough a small box!!!

Bought an Uad-2 Octo thunderbold satellite, and was blown away of the uad plugins sounds.
As a dedicated Avid HDX I had no idea what this small box is capable off.
The classic gear plugins sound fantastic and become just in 2 weeks my go to standards now.
I'm even close to buy a second box to have some more dsp power, to make some more complex mixes...I definitely will be keeping an eye out for more promotions from UA!!

DSP underpower and not avalaible when using plugins for recording in console.

Don't think you will have the power of a quad core computer with 4 DSP... One plugin can take 50% of the power of 1 DSP.

Also, When I recording with my Apollo, the console don't use the Satellite to render plugins like compressors of reverb.

Great addition to the Apollo 8. Such a relief not having to think about the amount of available computing power.

My UAD-2 satellite

It’s very good unit it gave you additional DSP so you can use more UA plug-in in your DAW but you should buy the plug-ins from UA store .. really it’s great .. thank you UA

More power made my mixes more powerful

buying this was the best thing I ever did. So I have the Apollo quad thunder bolt and the Octo. Thats 12 cores. Now I'm able to slap the oxide tape and 1073 on all channels. Then the ampex atr 102 master tape on the master fader plus more plugins to simulate a real console. Now my mixes sound real.

Now I don’t even know how many api’s and ssl plugins I can run at once, the satellites Octo makes beat and vocal mixing a breeze!!! Definitely worth it!!

Great for projects with a lot of plugins!

This has been a great addition to my Apollo Twin. It allows me to run a ton of plugins without having to worry about DSP. It has been totally worth the $$!

What can I say. Octo power.

I received this through UA's great promo. Purchased an apollo 8p quad and received the Octo satellite free. No brainer. Wanted to expand off my apollo twin duo and now its all great. I have all the front end power from the Twin and 8p and mad power ff the back end with the octo added to the chain. Now I can free up so much process power and at the most I am using 20% of my cpu on the native end with 32 tracks going on a 2017 macbook pro. It was an investment but money well spent for the future.

So far, so good...

This Satellite Octo is making for a great companion to expand the available DSP for the Apollo Twin.
