Universal Audio has announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized dealers worldwide.

The UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with FireWire 800/400 – for Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis.


The UAD-2 Satellites are designed to put the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library – including the Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, and SSL E & G plug-ins – within reach of 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 analog emulation plug-ins, along with a processing “boost” for digital audio workstations, according to the company.



Notable UAD-2 Satellite features include:

  • Access the UAD Powered Plug-Ins library on select FireWire 800– and 400– equipped Macs.
  • Compatible with modern Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 (or higher).
  • Run larger mixes in Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Performer and more.


There are five models to choose from:

  1. DUO (Core).
  2. DUO Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
  3. QUAD (Core).
  4. QUAD Flexi (w/ $500 Plug-In Voucher).
