Needing fewer inputs than the big studios doesn’t justify compromising quality. Too often, musicians, songwriters, producers, and engineers who only want a handful of ins and outs are given audio interface options that don’t have a high priority on sonic integrity. That’s not the case with the Universal Audio Arrow, a new desktop 2×4 Thunderbolt™ 3 audio interface with DSP processing in a compact housing about the size of a humble box of chocolates. It comes with a bonus better than candy—14 UAD plug-ins to use in tracking and mixing! Also, since it’s bus-powered, there’s no need to carry around a power supply!

Keeping its standards high, Universal Audio outfitted the Arrow with two Unison microphone preamps fed by rear-panel Amphenol XLR-1/4″ combo jacks and a dedicated front-panel 1/4″ Hi-Z guitar input. These analog inputs lead to high-class A/D converters, able to deliver up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution, ensuring that your precious source—be it one or two mics, a keyboard or synth, bass, or guitar—will be captured with accuracy and detail. The outputs include two 1/4″ jacks on the rear and a 1/4″ headphone jack on the front, and are driven by D/A conversion at up to 24-bit/192 kHz.

On the Arrow’s face, you’ll find a tidy layout that’s understandable at a glance and easy to use. Dedicated buttons offer instant access to input selection, high-pass filtering, 48V phantom power, a pad, and polarity, all of which can be adjusted per channel or linked for stereo pairing. Multicolor five-segment meters indicate levels ranging from -27 to 0 dBFS for the inputs and monitor outputs. The large multifunction rotary encoder can control preamp or monitor levels at the push of a button.
