Fast and powerful

Using only my Apollo twin duo I could to load maximum 4-5 auto tune plugins, with satellite I load around 17. Massive difference! As well I can mix and master my projects without any problem. Happy with that so much

More DSP

Now I can use more UAD plugins! Seemless integration. Makes my workflow that much more simple

Amazing product worth every penny

Yes it is more on the pricy side BUT think about how much you will save in the long run, I was debating if I should get this or start investing in Analog Gear, I know you can't compare analog with digital but still UAD does an amazing job with their plugins and to be honest unless you are making music/mixing/mastering for other engineers no one will hear the difference :)

That's what you need!

A great choice for professionals!
Satellite allows you to unload the CPU and take the load on yourself.
It works stably! I have not found any problems for a long time of work!
I recommend it!

Satellite of love?

This was a purchase I wasn't sure I needed to make. And I'm still not totally convinced. Very expensive way to make sure I can run the UAudio plugins I need when I need them. I absolutely love LUNA and the UA plugins I have purchased but the truth is this is an extremely expensive way to produce tracks especially when I consider what an overwhelmingly complete and great sounding package the Logical option is. The Octo Satellite I purchased works as intended problems activating or operating (so far) but I really think there should be a little sweetener added as I already own an Apollo Twin .. maybe a couple of plugins I don't already have? Maybe? Anyway, the 1084 is a staple on my channels as is the Avalon. The unison preamps is what this is all about for me. And seeing as I bake the audio inputs onto disc and I only have two pre's on the Apollo, the Satellite is a bit of overkill. However it is nice to be able to run a bunch of plugins at mix down instead of watching the DSP monitor all the time. All in all ... it does what it says on the tin.

Weak - Even for OCTO Core

Not thrilled that a $1,300, 8-core device can only run 5 plugins at a time. Pretty shitty performance, but at least it’s built like a tank.

새틀라이트 구매 후기

나는 아폴로 솔로 사용자다. dsp 용량 부족으로 인해 새틀라이트를 구매, 사용 중이다. 새틀라이트 dsp 사용은 daw에서만 가능하다. 구매할 때 이 사실을 알지 못해서 사용하기까지 며칠이 걸렸다. 나같은 초보자를 위해 글 남긴다.

Better Than Expected

Recently purchased a T3 UAD-2 Satellite Octo and so far I'm impressed. Before, just using my Apollo X4 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.

Makes the best better

The octo satellite makes mixing easier since you can run more plugins at once. Experiment more and try bigger combinations to find the perfect sound. I love it and will get more satellites as time goes by

really great product

first off , as i struggled to find any comments that make this clear ….this gives no added DSP for live recording . but really works fabulous for mixing . i don’t even give DSP a thought now . allows much more creative music mixing now that i am not worried about which UAD plug-ins i have memory to run . this is a great tool . expensive i admit but well worth it if you really want to make UAD your main tools for sound production . highly recommend it !!

Excellent Solution for More Horsepower on Apollo Twin X Quad

The immediate breathing room of 8 extra cores (to bring my system to 12 total) hightened and expedited workflow on post production. Stack those plug-ins deep--The Satellite Octo keeps the party going.

Awesome add-on to complement my Apollo Twin Duo!

Definitely need to one in Octo rather than in Quad if you like to only got Duo Apollo

Powerful DSP engine.

I run the satilite Octo thunderbolt 3 as a Audio unit effects plug-in,in Ableton Live 11 suite. It allows me to use multiple channels of UAD plug ins,Powerful.

It's exactly what I needed!

It works great, does exactly what I need.
What else is there to say?

I've had an Apollo Twin X for years and in Pro Tools while mixing I could only use 5 or 6 instances of UAD plugins before I'd run out of DSP. I had to print tracks just to free up DSP. Now with the Satellite I'm free to more plugins in the mix. I'm happy now!!!

Does what i expected and more

When i decided to buy this unit i had a few bigger projects thay were running my DSP up to 90-95% on an Apollo X8p (Hexcore) so, i figured that by the math another quad core would maybe take me down to 50-60% DSP on those projects.
To my surprise the DSP's were in the very low 40's!
My Mac started running noticably smoother too!
10/10 high recommendation from me.

fantastic gear

every serious musician who use UAD plugins and who makes serious mixages cannot live without this expansion gear! it opens the doors to great and huge use of Bad plugins

Trying to figure out why I took so long to purchase.....

I owned the Apollo Twin for years, about 6 months ago I purchased UAD Ultimate 10. Now I had access to most of the plugins available on the platform, but not enough DSP to experiment. Since I've made the purchase of the satellite OCTO my creative flow has been so much better. I've tested almost all of the compressors and preamps to hear the sonic differences. I'm not too familiar with the sound of outboard gear, but now I feel like I can hear the differences in multiple products. I've spent the time to learn the preamps, eqs, and compressors. I now feel like my Arsenal has opened up because I know how to match certain vocal types to certain plugins. It makes me feel better about only owning one mic lol, granted it's the U87 ;)
