UA Ships UAD-2 Satellite Duo and Quad


Universal Audio (UA) have announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized dealers worldwide. Here's what they have to say...
As the newest members of UA's award-winning UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of FireWire 800/400 -- perfect for Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis.
For the first time, the UAD-2 Satellites put the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library --including the popular Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, and SSL E & G Series plug-ins -- within easy reach of select iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis; no PCIe or ExpressCard required.
Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite packages provide a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins, along with a processing "boost" for digital audio workstations.
"UAD-2 Satellite is the result of UA listening to our customers, and giving them a processing solution that is both elegant and powerful," added UA Senior Product Manager Lev Perrey. "Coupled with our roadmap of exciting new plug-ins, we anticipate this product expanding our 40,000-strong UAD user base significantly in the years to come."
Notable UAD-2 Satellite features include:
  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select FireWire 800- and 400- equipped Macs
  • Compatible with modern Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 (or higher)
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more -- without taxing host computer CPU
  • 5 models to choose from: DUO (Core); DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher); QUAD (Core), QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher), and QUAD Omni v5.7 (w/ 50 UAD plug-ins)
Pricing and Availability:
The complete line of UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators are available now with prices starting at $899 MAPP USD. More information:
