It's a little bit frustrating to need to buy something by UA to use his plug-in's, but I need to say that it gives you the life. So congratulations for that amazing hardware!

Seamless integration and capacity...

UAD’s seamless integration of SHARC processors wouldn’t be possible without the foolproof plug and play functionality of the Satellite units. Scalable and reliable processing power—first time, every time.

UAD-2 Satellite on all my mixes

Recently bought a UAD-2 Satellite and it is running plugins on every mix I do. So far I had no performance issues and all plugins are running butter smooth. In the future I probably will get an Apollo interface and the combined processing power of both should cover all my needs.

Great piece of gear

I have got two Satellites Octo running on a Mac Mini 2018. Recording and mixing in Cubase 10 pro. I use loads of UAD plug-ings, few Waves and Eventide. I love the plug-and-play approach, the processing power (16 cores, 8 by Sattelite) and the quality of the vst‘s. Thanks a lot to UAD for having changed the life on thousands of passionated sound engineers.

Mix Engineer's

Great accelerator when it authorizes. Sometimes takes a while to recognize. Other than that it's the most consistent UAD device.

great power

Great for adding additional power, hopefully they update these soon though, because these came out in 2015, they are almost 5 years old. They should do thunderbolt 3 with 16 and 32, and the the PCI slots for the mac pro 2019

Exactly What I was Expecting!!!

I am mixing a fairly large project and needed more DSP because I wanted to A/B multiple Guitar amp inserts and effects on multiple tracks without having to delete the current models. I have the Tweed, the Marshall Bundle, The Friedman Bundle and the Fuchs Over-drive-so too many tasty choices!!! I had 2 UAD-2 PCIe Quads, and an Apollo 8p Quad so adding this Octo brought me over the top!!! Happy to almost double my DSP at one shot! Nirvana!!!

Satellite OCTO TB

A very good device. Really glad that i bought it. Works perfectly and helps me get my work done on my MBP without stressing it out.

Actually its the second one i have - first one was glitchy out of the box, but the retailer got me a new one really fast.

The only thing that I would really "change" on this device - add genuine rack ears, so that I could fit it perfectly in my rack alongside my audio interface. UAD doesn't provide this option, sadly =)

Perfect addition to Apollo Twin Duo

I needed more DSP horsepower for my mixes and this does the job perfectly. You can’t argue with the quality of UAD plugs and the satellite gives me the freedom and abundance of DSP, so I won’t run out of DSP any time soon.

Too little DSP power

Many new UAD plugins consume large amount of power. I need at least two Octo to do a smaller mix. Other than that, it's great and compact in size.

The octo Satellite does exactly what is designed to do. Now I have way more processing power and can run way more plug-ins at the same time. Thanks UA......your products rule!

Perfectly perfect!

Fantastic unit!

Exactly what I needed (more DSP) to run session with even more fun with my fav plugins. I've managed to put about 30 plugins so far in my Mix and combined with my Apollo 8p, I 'm at about 42% Yiiiiihaaaaaaa!!!

Great unit - UAD - 2 Satellite Thunderbolt

I was predominantly a "Waves" person, but needed some DSP power as my CPU on the Computer couldn't handle the load on some of my mixes. After a lot of thought, I decided on the UAD Satellite. I was so impressed with the performance and effects, I bought a whole lot of extras a few days later..... both Hardware and software are very impressive. use Waves very little now.

With the Apollo Twin and the Octo Satellite, I can focus on my workflow without even thinking about the processor load. And the UAD plugins are sweet! Huge difference!

UAD-2 Satellite Quad (Thunderbolt) MAC

Great addition to our new Studio "B', the plug-ins are FANTASTIC!!! Do yourself a favor and buy one of these. Easy to setup, great plug-ins and the hardware box looks great on any desk.
