uad satellite

can't quite see how these uad satellite things work as a solution: if you have an imac with firewire 800 then you're going to be having a chain of your interface, firewire hd and the satellite on the same chain. Uad seem a bit cagey about the likely performance with this set up, yet it's the most likely set up for the product!

You can't employ plugins on the way in? As for performance, even with the uad charts, it's still not clear what to expect

any users with this set up?

Don't have this setup myself but I would say this: Expect horrific latency problems when trying to overdub into a mix. Two solutions to this problem:

1) Use a USB interface and keep the FW bus free for the UAD.

2) (Not possible with an iMac or Macbook) Buy a FW PCI card and run your interface and UAD Satellite on two seperate buses.

kind of what I thought - I do have an imac, so it sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth

If you are set on the UAD plugs then you might consider only using them for mixing and inactivating them if you need to record overdubs.

thanks, but it doesn't seem even working like that is very stable - just not worth the cash
