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.

Arrow is shipping immediately priced at $499/£540 Street
