Universal Audio (UA), a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording products, announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized dealers worldwide. 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 years to come.”
