Universal Audio UAD-2 Satellite TB3 Octo Cust
Anolog Records , 04.03.2021
I purchased this unit to extend the processing power of my UAD Apollo Twin (Quad). It does what it says on the tin, my UAD Luna (DAW) sessions are no longer maxing-out from the use of dozens of plugins across my recording session. My sessions now fully benefit from UAD's awesome plugins, my home recordings have never sounded so good!

My only criticism is that when I purchased the Apollo Twin, I didn't realise how quickly I was going to run out of processing power and require the satellite unit, (which isn't cheap), but that's more of a criticism of UAD's marketing model rather than the unit. Nevertheless, UAD offer an affordable entry point to world class recording software (UAD Plug-ins and UAD's Luna DAW). Set up was super easy (if memory serves, I placed the satellite unit between my pre-amp and the Apollo), it synched up with my Apollo almost immediately, I just needed to purchase an additional thunderbolt cable and register the unit with UAD. Overall, this unit is a must for all UAD Apollo users!

Producteur de musique électronique amateur, ce périphérique me parait assez indispensable dés lors que l'on commence à prendre goût aux plug in haut de gamme UAD.

Les 8 coeurs SHARK permettent de placer des plug in UAD à foison : je peux désormais en placer (et en combiner) sur toutes mes pistes, sans jamais atteindre la limite.

Un périphérique absolument génial donc, de plus, il est fourni avec des plug-in gratuits de la part d'UAD + trois au choix.

Non sono convinto al 100%
Dario Agrillo, 22.05.2020
La qualità degli effetti è indiscutibile (specialmente quelli a pagamento, fuori dal bundle di base) e il fatto che non gravi sulla cpu del computer sicuramente prolunga l'obsolescenza della macchina.
I lati negativi, però sono vari: innanzitutto innesca una latenza nelle DAW che rendono impossibile l'utilizzo dei plugin in fase di registrazione (magari c'è qualche settaggio che non ho ancora capito...), inoltre in fase di rendering del file audio, a differenza di qualsiasi altro plugin tradizionale, rallenta la velocità di esportazione a circa 1.0x
Ovviamente per un singolo pezzo può essere un problema relativo, ma sul lungo termine diventa una grossa perdita di tempo.
Infine, il prezzo dei singoli plugin: assolutamente al di sopra di qualsiasi altro plugin sul mercato (anche dei blasonatissimi Acustica ecc...)
Avendo speso oltre 1000 euro per il solo DSP, potendo tornare indietro, probabilmente ci rifletterei un paio di volte prima di fare l'acquisto.
