UAD-2 Satellite USB
UAD-2 Satellite USB
Didn't work with ASRock motherboard
Apparently this product doesn't work with ASMedia USB. Wish they specified that in specs or at least linked to before buying. I had to go through a week of support emails to find out my motherboard was never going to work with this unit.
My studio is now World Class
The small usb box for windows....AKA UAD -2 has turned my $5000 studio into a world class studio. I cannot believe the sounds I am getting. Bravo to this small box. UAD you have a winner. Also the Octo takes off all the draw off from my CPU.
Simply put, it does exactly what it suppose to do each time energized. Thanks again UA!

Awesome piece of gear Having a device that is suited for dsp brings a world of possibilities in reducing the footprint and real estate of your studio . In the e ar future and in order to expand the portfolio of products you fo me make available an open api that allows programers to take advantage of this.
I can not get enough from the UAD platform. I've been with them since UAD 1, now expanding onto my 3rd audio room with new UA gear. Trustworthy, as always!
easy installation - works perfectly!
fast and easy installation on a really normal hp-computer quad core with built in original usb 3-interface by intel. works without any problems, including in combination with my uad solo pciExpress card that is already plugged into my computer. congrats to universal audio for such a smart solution!
I have been using UAD plugins since its beginning, with the UAD-1 PCI cards. In those days, to get more power you had to use a MAGMA chassis since cards came with ONE core only :) I chose the USB 3 option because I can easily take it along with my Laptop when needed and with 8 cores I have all the power I need to run my collection of go-to plugins for mixing. The unit is simple to setup (Win 8.1 64) and it's small enough to be unobtrusive and it looks good too! It's working perfectly and if I ever run out of "power" it's super easy to add another one. So, I am back to mixing with my favorite plugins once again.
The UAD platform is fantastic. Their plugins are heads and shoulders above the rest. The sound quality improvement is amazing
so powerfull tool for mixsing and mastering.
The UAD-2 Satellite USB gives me more DSP power to use more plugins on my projects without having to worry about CPU strain !!! Thanks UAD!!!
Finally Win USB3, works great!
So happy that finally I can use a UAD-2 Satellite with my PC via USB-3; works - as I'd have expected from UAD - absolutely great!

It's good but expensive.
I love you uad
UAD-2 Satellite USB. Прекрасное решение
Ну что можно сказать. На борту 4 процессора. Работает на UCB 3.0. Ничего не слетает и не косячит. Я доволен:)
It gave me more DSP
I never this to spent another $1500 to buy it, but the dale was so good i paid less then $999 ,this is why I got it but it change my way to mix as i have now 10 DSPs
Great little black box
I hated the limitation of my Apollo twin of only running a few of the newer "good" plug-ins.
Now I can slap any channel strip or compressor that handles most of my mixes without having to print them to file.
I would however really like it if we could tap into the power of our native cpu. Probably not likely any time soon.
DSP availability has increased dramatically!! A++
Love this unit. About the same size as my Apollo Twin Duo, both very portable. Love that I can load multiple instances of different plugins (even just to try things) and not worry about DSP going full.
Nice device, quick and easy Installation, impressive sounds but at least very expensive to buy and also the plug ins, would spend more money if they would be cheaper, and always waiting for sales is pretty boring. Any way wil have fun with the UAD 2
Just power, and no problems with the installation in Windows!
An excellent product backed by brilliant support!
I recently upgraded from four UAD-1 cards to a single Octo Satellite and for the first time in my life I no longer have to render tracks to complete a mix - marvellous! Projects that took 100% of the four UAD-1s are running at between 11% and 14% on the Octo. I wish I had "bitten the bullet" and made this change years ago.
I was nervous as to whether my current UAD-1 licenses would work on the Satellite and so I 'phoned the UK number for the UA support line. I never expect much from telephone support but I have to say that the person I spoke to was really helpful, polite and efficient. He assured me that all current UAD-1 licenses would work with the UAD-2 and, sure enough, they did.
The hardware is beautifully built and installed perfectly first time. I haven't yet had the chance to use it that much but it has behaved faultlessly so far.
In my opinion, not only do UA produce some of the best sounding audio gear on the market but they are also a truly professional company. Yes they charge premium prices but the products and service they offer are worth it!
