Just received my OCTO Satellite. Now I'm cruising with 2-8p's 2-Satellites and a Twin. 18 inputs for recording live, using Unison pre-amps and plug-ins. 18 channel Neve? Yep. 18 channel SSL? Yep. 18 channel API? Yep. 18 channel Helios? Yep. 18 channel UA? Yep. I like saying yes to my clients.
So brilliant !
I'm so satisfied with the device and it has had such a big influence on my mix and masterings and I would totally recommend it to my friends.
An additional 4 cores at a ridiculous price. I love UAD plugs and can never have enough!
You need to buy it in the right time!
After almost 10 years of making electronic music I have decided to buy UAD and it was very good decision. My sound upgraded to another dimension! Thank u Universal Audio for this possibility, VSTs are amazing! Cheers from Poland
so simply to get great power!
What can I say about the satellite other than sometimes, MORE is MORE, and when it comes to being able to instantiate my favorite UAD plugins, the more CPU, the better. This thing is a breeze to get up and running. The only downside is that it installs ALL of the UAD software again, (I already was running an Apollo) so I had to go through the folders and move out the plugins I don't own to keep them from showing up in my DAW menus. I wish you could opt out of that part with a simple prompt, but other than that, it's wonderful.
Lovely piece of gear
Great portable piece of gear. Had a Duo for years, and got used to freezing tracks and rendering in order to make way for more UA plugins, but that’s history now. Love it
18 x 24 i-o, should actually say Can Only Use 8 at a time!
I love everything Universal Audio, I love the concept of the Apollo, but the fact that I have so called 18 x24 simultaneous in's and out's is bull. I called UA tech support and the person helping new much less than I did about the Apollo, and that didn't help, it only made me upset (he never knew it)
He tells me that I'm only able to use 8 in's outs at a time with the console software, and with my experience I believe him. I have 4 apollos, so I'm in for the long haul at this point, but UA should have been more clear and not exaggerate 18 x 24 - "8 at a time" is more like it!
Oh, and the Console 2 software is not so easy to get either. Ok I should "RTFM" but what busy musician, engineer, producer has the time? I don't...in my experience, UX design keeps one from needed to read a manual. Don't believe me, use an Apple product!
poder de procesamiento UAD 2 QUAD
sin duda alguna que es un poder de procesamiento,,es garantia para mis mezclas
Great product easy to use!
Easy setup, easy to hook up to Apollo, only bad I can find is no thundrboldt cable is provided, but I expected that already since neither did the Apollo.
I bought the Satellite to have more computing power and paired it with an Apollo 16 MkII. I am very satisfied and now have enough power to mix with the 12 cores as I would like.
Five Stars for UA Satellite
This is my second Satellite and my first Octo. Apollo 16 + Apollo 8 + Quad and Octo Satellites means not having to think about plug-in power. Thank you, UA!
USD 2 Satellite
Works great. Easy install
In gewohnter UAD Qualität...
Einfach in der Bedienung, Schnelle Lieferung und Top Zusatz zur von mir erstandenen Apollo 8! Einfach nur super und viel Freude.
Great portable product!
Now I can bring UA's excellent plugins with me when I travel. Works like a charm! Excellent product, sturdy build!

Just what I need for my Apollo 8 duo, perfect
DSP issues are gone
Absolutely perfect, couldn't be happier.

After connecting the UAD-2 Satellite Octo Core immediately the system updated the firmware and after a few seconds I was able to use the amazing power in my pluggins. And now I have Dual Core from my Apollo Twin and 8 Core from the UAD-2 Satellite! It’s just an amazing speeding horsepower!!
The extra power is great!
Since incorporating the satellites into my system, I've been able to do much more work inside my iMac. The UAD Plugs sound better, and save the CPU for other Protools/Logic tasks.

Satelitte Thunderbolt Octo
Working perfectly with Presonus Studio One. Got a great deal with the “UAD Classic Console Plug-Ins Promo”, plus the registration coupon worth 250€! Nicely done UA!
