About Universal Audio Recording

Universal Audio recording equipment is a mainstay in professional recording studios and renowned for its world-class quality. UA audio interfaces are some of the most versatile in their class, allowing users access to accurate emulations of iconic channel strips, compressors, guitar amps, EQs and other unique hardware from the last six decades, all ran directly on the interfaces own DSP processor.

Effects can be applied directly after the preamp so they are printed to the recording with zero latency, or can be run after the recording as an insert like any other plugin in your DAW, the great thing about this process is that even the highest quality processor heavy plugin is run on the audio interface, so has virtually no impact on your computers own CPU. This process is similar with the UA Satellite, this is a box that houses the DSP processors, but omits the audio interface features, allowing users an affordable way to access high powered DSP processing with the stunning UA plugins, allowing you to even use processor hungry plugins on slower computers.
