Universal Audio starts shipping Arrow desktop interface

Universal Audio’s new Arrow Thunderbolt 3 audio interface for Mac and Windows is now available worldwide.

Featuring two Unison mic preamps, Realtime UAD plugin processing, and 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion, this portable, compact, and lightweight 2×4 bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 audio interface provides a generous collection of UAD plugins to record vocals, guitars, and more at near-zero latency.

Derived from Universal Audio’s Apollo interfaces, Arrow features an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, letting musicians monitor and record through the full library of UAD-powered plugins.

The included UAD studio mixing tools feature a number of classic compressors, EQs, and reverbs, highlights of which include the UA 610-B Tube Preamp and Marshall Plexi Classic plugins. Arrow can also be expanded with exclusive titles from Neve, SSL, Fender, 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.
