A quality product - great audio quality, easy to install, has transformed my production. You get what you pay for!
You buy it, you receive it, you unpack it, you plug it and it just works. Great addition to my studio.
Works as expected. Good value
I already use UAD Apollo Thunderbolt interfaces. They are possibly the best on the market and the plugins are fantastic. This Satellite Octo allows me more processing power to use more plugin instances.
