UA-ARROW

Limited stock available in select stores only Available in store used 4 from $499.00

Shape your recordings into records - with genuine UA audio conversion and a studio full of classic vocal, guitar, and mixing tools.

Featuring class-leading Universal Audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of built-in effects, Arrow puts album-quality recording on your desktop. This 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered audio interface for Mac and Windows includes a generous collection of UAD plug-ins to record vocals and guitars through at near-zero latency - as well as acclaimed UAD studio mixing tools like classic compressors, EQs, and reverbs - for professionally polished tracks, right out of the box.

Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations

Arrow's Unison technology gives you the tone, touch and feel of the world's most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amps. It includes the UA 610-B Tube Preamp and Marshall Plexi Classic plug-ins - and can be expanded with exclusive titles from Neve, SSL, Fender and Ampeg. The secret is Arrow's unique hardware-software integration, which adjusts the impedance of its instrument and mic preamps to match the emulated hardware - for authentic analog sound unmatched by other recording interfaces.

Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing

Derived from Universal Audios award-winning Apollo interfaces, Arrow opens up a range of classic analog colour via its Realtime UAD Processing. Featuring an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, Arrow lets you monitor and record through the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins - at near-zero latency, no matter your audio software buffer setting. It's like having a virtual analog studio that fits in a laptop bag.

The UAD library features more than 100 titles and offers everything from classic Moog filters to Ampex tape to Lexicon reverbs - with more being added every few months. These are the exact same UAD plug-ins used on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Dr. Dre, Brad Paisley and many more.

Built for Musicians, Electronic Producers, and Songwriters

Arrow's portable Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered design, robust all-metal construction, and class-leading audio conversion is perfect for musicians, songwriters, and electronic music producers who need UA quality in a compact package.
