Awesome piece of gear if you are into Universal Audio
music gear junkie :), 24.03.2021
I own a quad-core FW800 apollo rack unit which I recently upgraded with a TB3 expansion card and now I am having lots of fun exploring Luna. This TB Octo is a great addition to it and now with 12 DSP chips at my disposal I can get a lot more happening mixing with UAD plugins with lots of DSP headroom.

What I didn't realize first is that the TB3 Octo unit can be used without a UAD audio interface which means I can take with me whenever I am traveling and have my UAD plugings at my disposal on a laptop.

What is also cool is that is actually smaller, more compact than it may seem when looking at the pictures, same hight as apollo rack units and is quite light-weight so no issues using it on the go. If one's laptop is not super powerful, this unit will take a lot of processing onto itself and save laptop CPU from overheating, which is another pro for considering investing in this.

Cannot be happier with this purchase! Thanks a lot, Thomann Team for a superb customer service and experience!

Does a grand job
Shorty123, 09.07.2021
If you are shopping for these types of products you'll know why.
I did and I am not one bit disappointed; my Mac is leading a very lazy life and has time for loads of other things. the combination of my UA Apollo plus this Satellite is more than enough to serve my 32 track projects. This has something to do with the setup of your projects as wel. But there you are; this is a little gem!

no brainer
paolofromitaly, 04.01.2020
If you need a kick to boost your UA system processing power, this is the no brainer option. I would guess the other scenario would be to use it standalone to add support for UA plugins to an existing system, particularly useful in a mobile solution.

Unboxed it, plugged it in my Apollo x8p, switched on: it popped up the registration web page. Overall I was done with all of that in about 2 minutes, and up and running. Could not have been simpler than that.
Handling the unit it also feels sturdy, which seems relevant if you use it a lot in mobile scenarios.
The Quad unit is cheaper but I'd recommend the extra investment for the Octo. This is especially true if this is the only UA processing unit you use: 4 DSPs is not a lot, and if you run at higher sample rates you will definitely run out of juice sooner than you like.

Super useful
GuitarPlayerFromMinsk, 18.06.2021
I use this item as helper in mixing work, it help to use as many plug-ins and I need to, and computer is working just fine with that little helper. Quality in Universal Audio is amazing as usual, worth it.
