Sorry for being AWOL the past couple of days. Been very busy at my actual job that pays me money so I can do this for free. Ok… ok… ok… you guys ARE worth the trouble, just don’t get a big head about it or I’ll knock you down a few pegs. Don’t believe me?? Try me in the comment section of this post… Ohhhh I’ve got some zingers and mama jokes in the chamber homie! Anyways, I reported on the UAD-2 a while back Post here for showoff-y-ness. Anywho, they’re shipping those bad boys now so put your big boy pants on and go get one (if you have a mac.)

Universal Audio (UA), a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording products, today
announced that their recently unveiled UAD-2 Satellite DUO and QUAD FireWire DSP Accelerator Packages are now shipping to authorized dealers worldwide. As the newest members of UA’s award-winning UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, the UAD-2 Satellite family combines DSP acceleration with the plug-and-play simplicity of FireWire 800/400 — perfect for Intel-based iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis.
For the first time, the UAD-2 Satellites put the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library —including the popular Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder, and SSL E & G Series plug-ins — within easy reach of select
iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac minis; no PCIe or ExpressCard required.
