Little issue I need help
I love he device but I can't get rid of the static sound it gives during playback of any file. How do I fix that issue? I'm sure its a few buttons to press and features to switch but how do I stop this noise?
Why didn’t I buy that long time before??
I have owned and used several desk top audio interfaces over the years. I ordered this one because I found I most often only need one or two inputs at a time, I liked the idea of a bus powered interface and a much cleaner set up on my desk. Turns out it sounds great, l the plug ins are really fantastic and it integrates seamlessly with Logic ProX. I miss having a second headphone jack once in a while but that's an easy problem to solve. I highly recommend this interface for anyone who wants a simple bus powered set up our who does most of their recording alone with one mic and an instrument. Singer songwriter's bedroom stdio geeks and the like should all love this unit.
Not for Windows
Great build and features I wanted this to work for Windows. I spent a week and a half jumping thru hoops trying to make this work in Windows 10. I even bought a laptop from there suggested and approved list. I could not get rid of the crackle in playback and recording. I know this works great on the mac platform. Just couldn't get to work on Windows. I don't think the company is really vested in the Windows platform. When I asked tech support to give me a specific Windows Laptop I could get that would work they just referred me to list in which I had already used without success. I believe the list was just outdated. Bottom I believe it's a great product with great features just not for Windows.
Arrow - Fantastic Sound from a small Buss Powered Device.
The build quality is just top - Bus Powered via Thunderbolt 3 - No messy AC cables - Small fits right on the desk - portable - Just a brilliant entry device into the UAD world.
Conversion is top notch, really Brought my Axe Fx II to life.
everything is good
Simple, Robust, Useful
Simple design, well constructed with the essential controls at your finger tips. Easy way to extend your Apollo set up. It runs hot, but that is typical of the UA inyrtfaces. Excellent value for money.
Great Sound, Clunky Interfaces
The sheer audio quality, the latency (or lack of), the native preamp emulations, are all breathtaking for a TB3-bus-powered little box, and, at that price, mind-boggling. Buy this, no-brainer, buy it.
Having said that, I'm quite annoyed with the design of the Console app and the Meter & Control Panel. The fact that the mixer has a skeuomorphic design is fine, but please don't reinvent the wheel with the app's user interface. We're already using the OS UI that we've configured to our liking. No need to impose a dark-grey-on-darker-grey aesthetic on the user, with a menu and the settings hidden behind various push-buttons, where you have to click again for each function. Aargh. Some of us don't want a different workflow and non-standard window architecture in every app.
What I would like: The pure mixer elements in a mixer window, configurable either as a desk layout, or as one super-slim channel&bus&master strip, to squeeze next to the DAW window. All the other settings (including the Meter & Control Panel settings) in a multi-tab settings window, all the view options in a standard menu bar View menu, all the edit options in the Edit menu, File, Help, ... You get what I mean. And the added option to make the mixer a float window. That would be heaven. Yes please.
Apart from the interface, the hardware is amazing. Clean, lovely, portable, great value. Buy it.
Not Windows Compatible
I have a MacBook that runs Windows 10 on the bootcamp partition. This device is absolutely tremendous in MacOS. This device is absolutely horrific in Windows 10. Support will quickly point out that they don't 'support bootcamp'; but a quick search online will show that this is a widely known and long running UA issue with anyone using Windows 10. My guess is a fair amount of people who try to use this device in Windows 10 are like me and have a bootcamped Macbook; so they just blame bootcamp and duck the issue rather than fix it. For what it does well: it'll blow you away. For what it doesn't; UA's lack of support will blow you away. The workaround that I found in Windows 10 is to run the monitor out audio into the line-in on the computer for recording. I'm only recording my voice, so it works for me - might not be a great solution for a musician trying to preserve that analog processing in their digital environment. I wouldn't be using it with Windows 10 at all, but I record a daily remote broadcast for a radio station that's software is WIN only >>(
Dope little box
Great built in pres, easy to use, and great included plugins! Using it for mostly music production at my home studio!
Great for Video Productions and Live Streaming
Very satisfied, great tool for podcasts, audio and video post production, webcasts, etc...
Funciona genial, muy fácil de usar y más aún con los videos explicativos de Universal Audio.
I love it!
No latency for real!! I love it so much
Another world....another dimension of professional sound!
There is a before and after .... a before that is made up of good interfaces with great value for money, and that honestly cover its mission and there is a after, with Universal Audio, where one did not imagine that it could be reached. sound so incredibly good. My Voice Over recordings have taken a spectacular qualitative leap. I am in love with my Arrow !! (And with my Rode K2, which I couldn't take advantage of until I connected it to my Arrow!)
Outstanding and robust interface
The UAD Arrow is a beast in a small package. Amazingly reliable. The countless flavors of tone you can achieve with the unison preamps paired with the UAD plug ins cannot be matched. A portable usb-c interface that packs decades of legendary audio history in its box is a complete game changer.
Great experience setting it up and get familiar with the Arrow. Huge improvement in sound quality from my previous interface. It has more features than any other unit at its price. Overall exactly what I needed.
La uso per il mio home studio, essendo uno studio fatto a casa è perfetta per il suo utilizzo.
Piccola, compatta, incredibile e offre un sound da paura!!!
se ti serve una scheda audio Per non spendere un patrimonio e senza avere un pessimo prodotto questa fa al caso tuo
Just in love with this little thing
I wish I knew about Arrow right when it came out. Amazing audio quality
As an existing user of universal audio products , I thought I’d purchase the arrow as a mobile easy buss powered solution . This unit is a great interface sounds great and is simple to use and set up , I’m just getting to grips with the Luna software . Thinking of making the switch / using in tandem with my current daw ! The only disappointment is that I currently already own all the bundled plugins . And you don’t offer a credit or a choice of a free plugin in its place or for something new to use ,While tracking or mixing ! UA sort this out I’m sure lots of people with various units feel the same !! A bit of loyalty reward for buying more product surely ? Given 4 stars for product , but 1 star for lack of concern with users who already own the bundled plugins .
