Universal Audio Arrow Thunderbolt Audio Interface – No Longer Available

Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with Realtime UAD-2 SOLO Core Processing for Mac and Windows, including the Realtime Analog Classics Plus UAD plug-in bundle
MFR# ARROW

Product Description

The Universal Audio Arrow offers the same high-quality sound and plug-in compatibility as the larger Apollo series modules but with an elegant sleek design, Thunderbolt-3 bus powered interface and friendlier price point.

Arrow is the perfect interface for the producer on the go. Unison technology allows you to model some of the industries leading preamps from Neve, Manley, Universal Audio, API and SSL. The two onboard Unison enabled mic preamps allow you to record through UAD-2 platform plug-ins with near-zero latency up to 24-bit/192 kHz no matter your hardware buffer setting.

The two Unison preamps are equipped to receive mic or line level signals. A line level input for channel one is also conveniently located on the front panel, utilizing Unison technology with the amp simulations turning the Arrow into a variety of classic guitar and bass amplifiers.

The UAD-2 library offers more than 100 plug-in emulations of the industries leading gear. UAD-2 plug-ins are featured on countless hit records and used by some of today’s top producers, artist, tracking and mixing engineers including Greg Wells, Dr. Dre, Andrew Scheps and Tom-Lord-Alge.

Features:

  • Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3-powered audio interface with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion
  • Unison mic preamp and guitar amp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Marshall, Fender, and more
  • Realtime UAD Processing allows near-zero latency tracking with classic UAD plug-in effects, regardless of software buffer setting
  • Includes studio compressors, EQs, reverbs, and guitar amp emulations, and more as part of “Realtime Analog Classics” bundle
  • Bus-powered connection to Mac and Windows systems for easy portability and reduced cable clutter
  • Requires Thunderbolt cable (not included)

Great experience!

I don't like how it draws its power from my laptop. The plug ins are also annoying. Other than that, I love the preamps and it does its job well!

i use the arrow for couple months now and im still amazed how good this little thing sounds...over the years i always tried to have my portable studio...starting with my vs-1680 in the late 90'S till now..and this little beast is my dream come true..you can track with high quality plugins in real time with no latency...and like i said the sound quality is way up there...who cares if its been made on a laptop ...if its good...in a near future i can see a line of arrow with his thunderbolt 3 , bus powered , the option of duo or quad ...im pretty sure this would happen....

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
