UAD: The Industry's Most Respected
From serious home recordists to multi-platinum mix engineers, UAD Powered Plug-Ins are integral tools for audio professionals. The reason is simple. No other plug-ins faithfully capture the sound and behavior of classic analog equipment - whether it's boutique compressors and EQs, or vintage reverbs and tape machines.
The UAD library features over 90 plug-ins, co-developed with the biggest brands in audio. These plug-ins can be purchased with UAD-2 hardware from retailers as part of bundled packages, la carte from
UA's Online Store.

Lots of horsepower in a small package
Picked up a Satellite Octo to add some outboard DSP processing power to my main studio machine that uses a Lynx audio interface. The unit was super quick and easy to setup and powers tons of plugins without creating any additional CPU load. Haven't had any serious latency issues or other problems. Read more
A really great piece of kit, I might pick up a second.
