Priced at around $499, the unit could be considered the "entry level" unit for perspective UAD customers, but that's about as entry level as it gets. UAD interfaces have become synonymous with the best hardware-emulated plugins on the market, and having access to these at this price could make this one of the best selling pieces of studio gear this year. Better yet, Arrow is available now worldwide. 

Key features:

  • Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3-powered audio interface with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion
  • Unison mic preamp technology provides the tone, touch and feel of the world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amplifiers from Neve, API, Manley, Marshall, Fender, and more*
