I must confess, I’m going back and forth.
Currently running slate everything. Recently put on to the idea of getting the softube tape from Danny in next level mastering. Better alternative to VTM soundwise, cheaper to the ATR-02.
One of the big factors in my mind here with regards to UAD reluctance has been portability. In my mind there would be nothing worse then being on the go and opening up a session and finding that I cant run a certain plug because I didnt bring a big apollo device with me.
A little more to understand, but I am entirely in the box. Aside from tracking my own vox occasionally through an apogee one, I dont need the 1/4 inputs from the apollo or the arrow. Whats very interesting about the arrow though… is the bus power! What gives me pause is only ONE core in that thing. Now with what I understand from UAD users… that one core goes FAST. In my mind makes me thing that ONE core is essentially useless… and if I dont need the ports, maybe worth getting a satellite quad or octo.
Looking for some input here and re: the arrow, one core, and any satellite users. I’d be curious if the satellite is a little more rugged and portable than I’m envisioning in my mind.
