Universal Audio is proud to offer the UAD-2 Satellite TB3 OCTO Core. This high-powered DSP accelerator unit gives audio professionals, musicians and home studio owners the ability to run the world's most authentic analog emulation plug-ins on their Thunderbolt 3-equipped Mac or Windows 10 PC. Bolstered by 8 SHARC processors, the Satellite TB3 OCTO Core provides a massive boost in power for processing large, professional mixes in real time with sub-2ms latency. Over 90 UAD plug-ins to choose from, including rare vintage emulations from Neve, Studer, Lexicon, Ampex, EMT and more.

Harness the Power of Thunderbolt 3

The Satellite TB3 OCTO Core features dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, allowing for daisy-chaining additional Thunderbolt devices and enabling high-bandwidth, low-latency performance even at the highest sample rates. Although optimized for Thunderbolt 3, the Satellite TB3 OCTO Core is also fully backward-compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2 systems when using an adapter (sold separately). This makes the Satellite TB3 OCTO Core an ideal solution for any modern production environment.

Fan-Free Design For Quiet Operation

The Satellite TB3 OCTO Core employs a fan-free design for silent operation, ensuring no unwanted noise is introduced into recordings or live performances. Its compact, lightweight enclosure fits neatly into any workspace, from desktops to rack mounts to mobile rigs. An illuminated UA logo provides visual indication that your plug-ins are fully operational and ready to elevate your mixes.

Complete Creative Control at Your Fingertips

Paired with a Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interface, the Satellite TB3 OCTO Core provides a seamless hardware/software experience for running UAD plug-ins with full hands-on control. Alternately, the Satellite TB3 OCTO Core can operate as a standalone DSP accelerator for use with any Thunderbolt 3 audio interface. Either configuration unlocks access to groundbreaking UAD processing tools for monitoring, tracking, mixing, mastering and more.
