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.

Santas little helper when it comes down to external dsp and taking off some of your cpu load when mixing. Some of the plugins are really good, I bought mine within special period which granted me some additional hi end plugins. It works well, I use it on my old mbp early 2013. Zero issues so far. Thumbs up, great product and of course, swift delivery and excellent service by Thomann as well.

Pros you can use so many UAD plugins now

Cons you need to buy a Thunderbolt 3 cable

but it was really worth it.
