NAMM 2011: Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite

The UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of FireWire 800/400. The UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library within easy reach of FireWire 800– and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP engineers worked with leading hardware manufacturers—including Roland, Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs, Trident, SPL, EMT and more —using their exact schematics, golden units and experienced ears.

The UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of
FireWire 800/400. The UAD-2 Satellite puts the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library
within easy reach of FireWire 800– and 400-equipped computers; no PCIe
card installation required. In developing these UAD plug-ins, UA’s DSP
engineers worked with leading hardware manufacturers—including Roland,
Neve, Studer, dbx, Solid State Logic, Lexicon, Manley, Empirical Labs,
Trident, SPL, EMT and more —using their exact schematics, golden
units and experienced ears.

Available in DUO or QUAD processor format (with either two or four
Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), UAD-2 Satellite
packages provide a processing “boost” for digital audio workstations,
and include a selection of classic analog emulation plug-ins.

It is compatible with a wide range of modern Intel-based iMacs and MacBook Pros, and users can run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more without taxing host computer CPU.

The five models available include: DUO (Core), DUO Flexi (with $500 Plug-In
Voucher), QUAD (Core), QUAD Flexi (with $500 Plug-In Voucher) and QUAD
Omni v.5.7 (with 50 UAD plug-ins).

The complete line of UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators is slated for a
Q1 2011 release with prices starting at $899 MAPP USD.
