UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3
UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3
Octo TB2 Satellite - working great with M1 MBP
I like especially that you can use 100% of the satellite DSP for plugins - Apollo units each & all use a small chunk of their DSP for Console and onboard processes, no matter how many you have linked up in a system.
I picked up this Octo second hand - it's TB2, running connected to my system with the Apple TB2/TB3 bi-directional adapter dongle. I also have a Samsung monitor running at 1920x1080 @60hz out of the second TB2 connector of the Octo & without issue. I was concerned TB2 might not play well with TB3, but it's been stable so far.
More Power - More flexible
Great and must kind no brainer
I am new to the UA family and can honestly say I have found my new home. Fantastic gear and stellar customer service… Thank you Universal Audio!
What more can I say? Allows freedom of expression. Worth it.
I love you UA
this is a MUST
The extra juice I needed
Was a must have to get the dsp I needed for my workflow
An indispensable tool in my work
Реально не пожалел о покупке
I got 3rd OCT and I've got 24 COREs Now. It's gonna be easier to use for High Sampling rate Projects. Always It Works Great !!
Good build quality
I have used UAD plugins from UAD-1 PCI time. I like the daisy chaining option. Easy to use. On/off switch is nicely located and easily reachable. I always liked how UAD plugins treat the sounds. I wish I had some voucher with my product. Overall very nice device.
Great! A must have for mixing!
UAD-2 QUAD Satellite Thunderbolt 3
I already own a UAD-2 QUAD PCIe card but I was running out of DSP power so I added a UAD-2 QUAD Thunderbolt Satellite. It's great - it instantly paired with my existing QUAD PCIe and I don't run out of DSP any more! Plus it's a sleek little bugger, looks really cool on my desk.
i like this!!
I bought it after always using twin x, and it is so good that I have enough DSP space.
Works as expected
Second one of these, just switched it on and was seen without any need to mess about. Simple’s.

Causes -38 Errors
Bought two of these TB3 Octos and can’t use them efficiently because they frequently cause -38 errors and need to be power cycled several times in the middle of working. First time giving UA a bad review. I will consider updating if the issue is fixed. But at the moment I cannot use my new products and it’s been 6 months with the issue.
With recent computer upgrades I was no longer able to use my old tried and true Satellite Firewire. Picked this up and doubled my plugin power. Plugged it in, went right back to work without a single hiccup. Really a sturdy build, easy setup and massive processing. Love it!
Just make sure you buy a thunderbolt 3 cable first ;)
Satellite not working with Windows
So far, this has been a terrible purchase.
I have an error message (-38) and my system bugs whenever I use the satellite. I have tried everything to fix it, changed cables, uninstalled and re-installed the software -including re-installing an older version-, re-initialised my Apollo... all the tips I was able to find on the UAD forum. I opened a ticket with UAD support of course, and have had no real support. The support guy told me that it must be a hardware problem, but the satellite works rock solid with a Mac so that’s not it. Since this last troubleshoot, I have not heard a word from support.
At this point, all I can say is that I gave UAD $1000 to have a black box with a green light sitting on my desk.
This is the one . I have a silver face duo and seems as the years gone by the plug-ins got larger .I figured it’s the 32-64 bit change . Anyway, I started running out of dsp. I was going to buy another Apollo but decided on the octo . Now I can run so many plugins and don’t have to bounce tracks or mix with stems anymore . My largest session still only took about 58% of dsp.I mean I had a lot of plugins running , more then 25 . So I”m running 10 cores now ( 2 Apollo FireWire , 8 satellite ) and it’s plenty . This is a must buy ….
Provided a nice DSP boost to my sessions.
