A must have piece if you use UAD plugins

I have a lot of UAD plugins and before I got this piece I would run out of processing power pretty quickly. I'm using the API Vision and Neve plugs quite a bit as well as the Urei and Fairchild compressors.

I got the Satellite Octo and it's amazing. I've had up to 16 instances of Vision up and it didn't even hicup. Added a bunch of other things too, including a couple of Lexicon 224's and EMT 250 reverbs. It just handles it all.

If you're looking to do pro mixes this is a major upgrade to accompany the UAD platform.

Good value for money

Easy setup and integration with my Apollo Twin. Works like a charm. Stable. Really nice to be able use loads of plugins rolling. Nice small size too.

Octo Satellite Thunderbolt

Unit looks great and performs excellently. Really frees me up from plug-in limitations so I can work with my ears and not worry about resources.

Thunderbolt octo.

Worth every penny! So many instances can be run at once! Makes the choices harder now on what to use lol

Uad can do no wrong!!!

Satellite OCTO Thunderbolt

Have been using the Satellite Quad FW for a year now without any issue.
Have just changed to Satellite OCTO Thunderbolt and been using it for a week now. Runs smooth and nice, no issues or bugs (Mac Pro cylinder 10.9.5 / Pro Tools 11.3)

So far, so good!

I've only had it for a few weeks but the setup and installation process was super quick and easy. Glad it has two ports on the back so I can daisy chain it to my interface and hard drive. Excited to try more plugs!

This new update to Thunderbolt is perfect to use many more plugins without latency.
Great DSP and great plugins. Put in comparison with other plugins and feel the difference!!

LOVE this product!

I had a firewire Satellite and was very happy with it, so it's no real surprise that the Thunderbolt Quad lives up to and surpasses my expectations. While the instance count remains the same as it's firewire counterpart, the daisy chaining connectivity is a breeze and the latency is significantly reduced.

My Satellite is connected inline between my Apple Cinema display and thunderbolt HD. And.. this is all connected to a 2013 Macbook Air with my work files and OS all running on the *same* internal SSD - with no hiccups. Thunderbolt and SSDs are a powerful combination - and combined with the DSP workload being handled by Satellite - proves even a modestly powered laptop can do powerful work these days.

Key addition to my studio

Adds much needed plugin power to my rig with cool plugins and great expansion options. A little concerned about the cpu errors I keep getting when I load one of the UAD plugins, but otherwise I am very happy with this piece of gear.

best value

been using the plugins for about ten years now, still happy with them.

not that happy with your reissueing plugins I´ve already bought and having to pay for

and thought quad core/thunderbolt would be a bit more powerful,

still: very good gear, keep up the good work!
