TubeSoundJim, 22.05.2017
I use the satellite in my proffesional studio in Athens.
I had the previous version which was the sattellite quad core Firewire.
With the firewire one, i had speed problems as the increase of the plug ins, so if the cpu of the unit was 100% for example i had delay problems, even if i had the delay compensation on, in my daw (which happend to be Avid's Pro Tools 11.
Pros:

Now back to the Octo core Thunderbolt satellite, all i can say i'ts perfect!! When i hit the switch button to turn in on within a few seconds it's clocked with the system (Host indicator on the satelite) and runs perfectly without any issues or delay problems beacuse of the thunderbolt technology, not to mention the headroom i have because of the eight cores, which means that if i full the eight cores and i still have problems on my mix, then sure the satellite it's not the case. Great features such as 2 thunderbolt ports for daisy chain with other uad thunderbolt devices makes it very user friendly and gives me lots of options.
Cons:
I can't find any cons except that is a bit pricey.

A great unit for any professional studio without any issues!

Fantastic plugins, but underpowered unit

PassionFlower, 06.10.2015
The UAD platform enables you access to some of the best plugins in the world. It's top quality all the way!
This little unit is very well built, sets up instantly without any issues and has been working without any hiccups for me. Just plug, play and enjoy!

The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it's quite underpowered for its price. With the more recent releases from UA you won't be able to run that many plugins on this box. You won't be able to do a full mix with the Neve 88RS on this box for example. Even a modest MacBook Pro will give you more processing power for the money.
If you wait for one of their deals it can be worth it however! I got plugins worth $1000 when I bought this unit so taken that in consideration the price was more acceptable.

Being dependant on external hardware and a wall outlet can be a bit limiting if you're used to mixing on the go. But the quality of the plugins is worth that in my opinion. And this thing is built like a brick so it will surely last.

Quality all the way through, both hardware and software. But it comes at a pretty steep price tag.
