UAD-2 Satellite USB
UAD-2 Satellite USB
Too Much Money for Just Processing Power
I think this unit is priced to high. For the same amount of money, I can get a great sounding A/D & D/A converter and Audio interface in one unit. It might not have the same processing power but it will have some.
As a windows user, I must say I am overjoyed that UA has made this USB 3 version of their Satellite. I already have an Apollo Twin USB, so the two of them work together perfectly. I have not had a single problem with any om them. I could not be more satisfied.
Now I am just waiting for UA to make a USB version of the Apollo 8, and then there will no longer be any need for an extra A/D converter.
In other words, couldn't be happier!
It is very cool design.
UAD Pluguins add a silky air deep to the your mix.
What they did was right.
Once I got the Twin (usb) I was hooked. You kind of get pulled in, which is why I also purchased the UAD-2. UA gave me the option to select optional plugins so as not to duplicate any I already had. My little single player studio now produces great quality recordings and I am only just starting to explore possibilities. Superior products!!
Registration and installation was a breeze. Works absolutely flawlessly in tandem with my UAD2 Duo and now I can really enjoy the sound of my plugins without a compromise.
Plug ins are awesome but DSP lacking..
I bought this unit because I wanted to use UAD plug ins and wanted to have the extra DSP for my computer to run either Pro Tools or Reaper. Not all the plug ins are available in Reaper from UAD. Not sure what is wrong but they are not all there when I installed my software. Also not sure if this is an anomaly but when I took my UAD Sattelite 2 Quad to our studio it crashed a hard drive and had to basically cancel a session after that occurred. No issues on my laptop at home. Also I have a very limited amount of plug ins available to use at one time during mixing. I can only use about 10-12 plug ins at one time. If you use a Reverb or a high DSP demand plug in I can only use about 4 (i.e. Sunset Studios or any modeling amp plug ins) they are basically the reason I bought the UAD Satellite 2 Quad. For 600 buck you sure do get a lot of plug ins but I cant use all of them at the same time? I am not impressed really and questioned my purchase since then. Plug ins sound awesome and are very useful. I would compare the SSL strip to the real deal pretty close in sound. I mean if I were to A-B the same track same speakers and same settings on the SSL analog and the plug in I think I would have a very hard time to decipher which is the real one and which is the software. Great product but missed the mark in my opinion and I don't think I would recommend it to anyone else.
Perfect for PC users who don't have UAD interface
Simply, you have additional "computer" AND you are able to use UAD Plug-Ins. I am traveling frequently and this piece of equipment makes it easy to work even on a laptop with relatively lower capacities. Home-studio must have!

Just what I needed
Just what I needed
Let’s face it,once UAD plugs user”,well we just want more and more,,this QUAD DSP.will enhance your mixing experience freeing your computer from processing power issues
bought this to take the load off my cpu then find out it will only run the uad plugins. that didn't work for me so I returned it. probably works good for that but it wouldn't help me with my plugins I already have.

UAD-2 Satellite USB Quad
I bought my first Satellite Quad in August this year to enter the UAD world and immediately fell in love with the great plug ins. I've tried them in an existing mix of a finished production and could clearly see/hear the improvmentes achieved by great sounding plug ins such as the LA-2A, 1176, SSL Channel, Neve Channel or the Ocean Way Studios. With the 4-710 d Twin Finity promo I got my 2nd Satellite for free, great deal!!
I resurrected my studio I had from 8 years ago, and Powercore was out of the picture, so this was the new king. Got it and do not regret it at all, already aquired a few plugins that helps a lot getting great sound out of my tracks. Exciting times!
For me a must have!
I'm so glad I went with the Octo instead of the Quad, to pair with my Apollo Twin USB. As of yet I haven't come close to utilizing all of the DSP but I know that at some point I will and its a great comfort knowing that I can handle whatever is needed. Setup was extremely easy and they both stack nicely on my desktop, I couldn't be happier.
I’m really happy I decided to make this purchase. The fact that I have access to all these amazing plugins that would cost me a whole lot more if I bought the actual hardware units. The plugins sound amazing and I don’t have to worry about taxing my main machine while running them. Thank you Universal Audio for making this possible.
How to avoid the PCIe lane traffic jam.
After upgrading my PC components a couple of times, (Motherboard, CPU, memory...) I wasn't thrilled with the minimal performance increase. Previously I had a 16 Ch. audio card, a UAD quad card, and a video card all fighting for PCIe lanes. With this recent PC upgrade, I went with the UAD Octo USB3 Accelerator, and saw significant performance increase. One of these being able to reduce my audio card buffers to 128. Which previously was not an option. This unit works well, and doesn't hog resources.

Great easy to set up.
And of course your added DSP.
