    Help needed for Twin Duo + Satellite problem

    Hi to you all, new user here

    I have a few questions and hope you can help me out:

    I have a Apollo Twin Duo (Thunderbolt) and after buying several new plugins it seems I need more DSP. I have a chance to buy a used Firewire UAD-2 Satellite Quad, does these two work together? And does that Satellite need change of registration (to work)? If so, how it is done?

    I have a mid 2011 iMac with one Thunderbolt and one Firewire connectors, so buying a Thunderbolt Quad satellite isn't an option.

    Best regards, Skip

    Why isn't a TB Satellite an option? Connection chain will go Mac > Satellite > Apollo

    I'd recommend this over using FW which has bandwidth limitations.

    And in any case, do understand that the Satellite DSP will not be available in Console live on inputs; only in the DAW while mixing.

    I think the FW would work, but it's an old tech that is limited. (and yes, it would need a registration change, it's just a form the owner submits.)

    Thanks!

    Yes I know that Satellite will work only in mixing. Didn't knew that one could connect those devices like that, though. That makes me consider that deal again. If the price is right...
