Universal Audio Arrow Thunderbolt 3 Bus-Powered Audio Interface

$700.00 $680.00

Though I think the best user is someone like myself who is already in the UAD ecosystem looking for a mobile option, it really is a great device. I love the TB3 speed and simplicity for my MacBook Pro, and the build quality is exactly what you”d expect from UA: exceptional. It is a steal…. Get one! ~ PK

The world’s first Thunderbolt 3-powered desktop recording audio interface for Mac and Windows is here! The latest UAD Arrow delivering class-leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD plug-ins for album-quality results.


The new UAD Arrow features many of the advantages of UAD’s Apollo interface range, including 24-bit/192kHz A-D/D-A conversion, Unison preamp modelling technology and real-time UAD plug-in processing. With a new affordable pricing, the Arrow offers a great head starts for you to access some of the classic audio tools including the 610 Tube Preamp, LA-2A and 1176 compressors, and a genuine Marshall Plexi amp plug-in — at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer setting.

Great News For Home-Studio Producers

For smaller studios and mobile producers, the Arrow makes it easier for your productive sessions. You’ve got a pair of Unison mic/line inputs, which sound detailed and transparent. Beyond that, an instrument input, two analog outputs, and a high-quality headphone output give you enough I/O for most small tracking sessions. Simple yet a powerful tool!

Processing Power Built In For You

There are times when your computer just doesn’t have the power and speed to run all the plug-ins your recording session needs. With UAD Powered Plug-ins, the processing load is taken off your computer and borne by UAD’s super-powerful Analog Devices SHARC processors. Universal Audio’s Arrow interface has one of these SHARC processors built in, which gives you enough power to track small sessions and start building your mix.
