Universal Audio Arrow

The Universal Audio Arrow is the world's first Thunderbolt 3 powered desktop recording audio interface. Designed for Mac and Windows, the UAD Arrow delivers class-leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD Plug-ins. Delivering album-quality results, the UAD Arrow starts with the esteemed Universal Audio conversion, derived from the flagship Apollo range. Therefore, sonically outperforming anything in its class. Featuring Unison technology and the built-in UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, you can record through classic audio tools including the 610 Tube Preamp, LA-2A, and 1176 compressors. As well as a genuine Marshall Plexi amp plug-in, all at nearly-zero latency, regardless of your software buffer settings.

Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations

Experience the tone, touch, and feel of the world's most sought-after preamps with UAD Arrow. Including the 610-B Tube Preamp, plus authentic emulations from Neve and API. As well as guitar amp emulations from Fender and Marshall. Complete with their signature impedance, gain stage "sweet spots" and component-level circuit behaviours. Furthermore, at the core of the UAD Arrow, is the hardware-software integration of the mic preamps and onboard processor. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Arrow’s Console software, and it physically reconfigures Arrow’s impedance — so you can tap into the classic tube and transformer sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps and guitar amps.

A Full Suite of Classic Studio Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, UAD Arrow provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins; including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the Unison-enabled UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other plug-ins are judged. So from the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals. Your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound. All delivered with the UAD Arrow

Ready to Go

Finally, with its robust all-metal construction and bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 operation. The Universal Audio Arrow is the only "clutter-free" portable audio interface that truly delivers album-quality results. As a result, you've got a virtual analog studio that fits onto any desktop while easily fitting inside your laptop bag.
