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.
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.
UAD 2 Satellite
Great easy to set up.
And of course your added DSP.
As always with UA stuff, it does what it’s suppose to, fast and easy to register and make it work, no problem with the UAD-2 PCIe already installed. USB(SATA 3) is very reliable.
Excellent device and the plugins are terrific - well done UAD. I wish I got onto UAD products sooner. Fan for life
Ultra flexible and stable DSP on windows. work's grate and sound amazing.
It gave me the power I needed to run my plugins without any problems. Love it
1st experience with Uad, all i can say is quality, Quality hardware, Quality plugins
It just works.
I already have an Apollo Twin and a UAD-2 quad in my desktop. I wanted to be able to take my laptop remotely with the Twin, but needed more power. The Satellite USB gives me that. Installation and operation are painless.
LETS BE HONEST IN 2018
This is octo number 2 and at 1,000$ it’s high up their. But the fact it’s expandable and does it’s job I cannot complain.
I just wish they made this USB version OSX compatible. It is what it is.
A life savor
I'm a firm believer in my UAD plugins, so I needed more horsepower and this little guy gave it to me. This, along with my apollo quad MKii, i'm good!!!
Es una muy buena inversión para el estudio. Las prestaciones que ofrece son excelentes.
Es una muy buena inversión para el estudio. Compre primero la uad-2 satellite y después la apollo twin. Las prestaciones que dan son muy satisfactorias.
I was worried the quad may not be enough for my home studio. It works perfectly for processing multiple tracks. Typically I'll run 12 or more tracks and at least that with plugins (tape emulation, etc.) after multi micing my guitar cab and layering. I haven't had a single glitch.
