Great DSP

18.06.2016
While this UAD satellite carries the burden of most computing effort for sound treatment in the mix, it gets the job done through hi-end plugins.

Quality level I couldn't find in any other way than this.
When you start using analog compressors emulations like LA-2A or Fairchild, or eqs like Neve models (e.g. 1081), or Pultec... well you just can't get back.

I work on small or medium mixes but I like to have no lag in realtime recordings, and I can afford keeping most plugins on when I work with this dsp.
I could find its bottom in computing power just once, but I've really pushed it with many kinds of reverb working together, which are supposed to be the most dragging ones.

This dsp is quite small and I use to take it with me and my MbPro when I travel. Handling is not great though: the power adapter is really BIG, no way to get it powered through tunderbolt, no rack adapters.

UAD is a benchmark in hardware and software quality, this is clear to most professionals, UAD knows it and, well, you have to pay to get there.

My second TB Quad

Flame , 01.07.2018
UAD make top quality plugins which are probably the best out there. Naturally after buying more UAD2 plugins the only way to run them was to expand my Satellite processing power by buying another Quad. If I could afford it I would have bought the Octo. The good thing is I can daisy chain four UAD2 Satellites via Thunderbolt. Works perfectly.
