The brand new Universal Audio Arrow - a bus powered Thunderbolt, 2 channel audio interface with Solo DSP chip for recording on the go has been announced today. It's a new desktop format designed to be highly portable, being smaller than the Apollo Twin, for location recording and mixing.

We had the chance to take a first look at Arrow when UA came to visit - we filmed this presentation with UK UA product specialist Tom Waterman.

Arrow is a bus powered device giving true 48v phantom power to the two Unison enabled mic preamps. DSP is provided by a single DSP chip, which can be added to available Apollo units if you already own them. The main thing is that the Arrow is truly portable, meaning you can run vintage record path pretty much anywhere for as long as your laptop battery lasts.

Arrow comes bundled with 14 plug-ins, for both traditional mic recording and guitar and bass paths.


  • 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*
  • 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 the "Realtime Analog Classics" bundle - featuring 14 quality UAD Plug-Ins
  • Bus-powered connection to modern Mac and Windows systems for easy portability and reduced cable clutter new device.
