Featuring class-leading Universal Audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of built-in effects, Arrow puts album-quality recording on your desktop.

This 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered audio interface for Mac and Windows includes a generous collection of acclaimed UAD plug-ins to record vocals and guitars through with near-zero latency — as well as acclaimed UAD studio mixing tools like classic compressors, EQs, and reverbs — for professionally polished tracks, right out of the box. Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations A Universal Audio breakthrough, Arrow’s Unison technology gives you the tone, touch and "feel" of world's most sought-after tube and transformer-based preamps. These include authentic licensed mic preamp emulations from Neve and API, and guitar amp emulations from Fender and Marshall— complete with their signature impedance, gain stage "sweet spots", and component-level circuit behaviors.

Unique hardware-software integration
The secret is Arrow's unique hardware-software integration, which lets you record at near-zero latency through Unison-enabled plug-ins, regardless of your software buffer setting or how many virtual instruments you’re running. Arrow includes the UA 610-B Tube Preamp and Marshall Plexi Classic guitar amp plug-ins — for authentic analog sound unmatched by other recording interfaces.  Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing  Derived from Universal Audio’s award-winning Apollo series of interfaces, Arrow opens up a range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Featuring an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, Arrow lets you monitor and record through the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — at near-zero latency.  

More UAD Plug-ins
The UAD library features over 90 titles and offers everything from classic Moog filters to Ampex tape to Lexicon reverbs and tube-driven Pultec EQs — with more being added every few months. These are the exact same plug-ins used on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Dr. Dre, Brad Paisley and many more. Built for Musicians, Electronic Producers, and Songwriters  Arrow’s portable Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered design, robust all-metal construction, and class-leading audio conversion is perfect for musicians, songwriters, and electronic music producers who need UA quality in a compact package. And with its growing library of stunning UAD plug-ins, Arrow is like having an ever-expanding analog studio, right on your desk or ready-to-travel in your laptop bag.

I don't know what I would do without it!


I use this interface for all my recording sessions and it puts out great quality! Highly recommend!



Quality on the go


Great little interface, very portable. I use it for when I travel, It's a treat to have the UAD system available that readily. I prefer it to the twin because it's bus powered. But ofcourse that means that if you accidentally disconnect it shuts off. Not sure what protections are built in for phantom powered mics when that happens.



A must have for any serious music producer


This thing is amazing! The quality is incredible. Although I do wish UA hooked it up with a few more plugins for the price of this thing.



Easy to use


my daughter uses to record music - seems easy to use



I definitely rate this product


Best sounding interface you can use at home



Great for portability. Limited power.


Elegant, simple hardware. Clean preamps. Unison preamp plugins are great and make a big difference. DSP maxes out quickly on this single SHARC chip though, and I'm seeing way more latency issues than on my Duet (iOS/Mac). Headphone amp is a little weak.



Sounds amazing


Pro audio on the road, love that its bus powered and how small it is.
