Universal Audio Introduces Arrow Desktop Audio Interface

Universal Audio has introduced the Arrow Thunderbolt 3 audio interface for Mac and Windows computers.

Universal Audio said the Arrow’s Thunderbolt 3 interface has class-leading sound quality, Unison mic preamps and Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing. A portable, compact and lightweight 2x4 bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion provides a generous collection of UAD plug-ins to record at near-zero latency.

Derived from Universal Audio’s award-winning Apollo interfaces, Arrow features an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, It allows users to monitor and record through the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins at near-zero latency no matter the setting of their audio software buffer.

Arrow also features acclaimed Unison mic preamp technology, offering the tone, touch and feel of the world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps.

The included UAD studio mixing tools — featuring classic compressors, EQs, and reverbs — enable users to produce high quality audio out of the box. Highlights include the UA 610-B Tube Preamp and Marshall Plexi Classic plug-ins — and Arrow can be expanded with exclusive titles from NeveSSLFender and Ampeg.

The UAD library offers more than 100 titles, including everything from classic Moog filters to Ampex tape to Lexicon reverbs — with more being added every few months.

Arrow is now shipping, with an estimated street price of $499.
