A simple FireWire connection is all it takes to plug your Intel-based Mac into the world’s finest analog hardware emulations. The UAD-2 Satellite DSP Accelerators offer full access to UAD Powered Plug-Ins, including exclusive titles from Studer, Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL and more.

The UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Custom package features a sleek, ultra-portable FireWire 800/400-based processing unit, plus the “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle (VST/AU/RTAS) and you pick any three individual UAD plug-ins at registration, giving you massive analog character, right out of the box!
