You must purchase your device between October 1st and December 31st, and then must register your new Apollo rackmount interface(s) on or before January 15th, 2019 to receive your free UAD-2 Satellite.
You say the Apollo must be purchased by an authorized UA retailer. Who is considered an “Authorized UA Retailer”?
An authorized UA retailer is a dealer or distributor with whom Universal Audio has a written agreement to sell our products and participate in all UA promotional offers. We also provide support and service for all Universal Audio products sold by our authorized retailers.
If I buy from an unauthorized dealer can I still qualify for the promotion?
Unfortunately, no. Unauthorized retailers are selling products of unknown origin. We do not encourage our customers to engage in transactions with these dealers. UA products purchased through unauthorized retailers do not qualify for promotions or technical support.
Where can I find a list of authorized UA retailers?
Visit our dealer locator here.
Do purchases made on eBay qualify for the promotion?
If I buy an Apollo from an authorized UA retailer within the promotional time frame, how do I get my free UAD-2 Satellite?

Your redemption form asks for my phone number. Why do you need my phone number?

I registered a qualifying Apollo during the promo period but I didn't fill out the redemption form during registration. How can I get back to the redemption form?
You can get back to the redemption form by logging into your UA account and going to the URL below:
Note that the URL will only be active if you have registered a qualifying Apollo during the promo period (Oct 1st - December 31st, 2018) and have not yet signed up for the promotion.
What if I live in a country other than the one where I purchased the Apollo? Can the UAD-2 Satellite be shipped to me in my home country?
No. Your shipping address must be in the same region where you purchased your Apollo.
- If you purchased an Apollo in the US, we will only deliver your UAD-2 Satellite to a US address.
- If you purchased an Apollo in Japan, our distributor, Hookup Inc, will only deliver your UAD-2 Satellite to a Japanese address.
- If you purchased an Apollo in Canada, our distributor, HHB Canada, will only deliver your UAD-2 Satellite to a Canadian address.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you live in any country other than the ones listed above you will get a free UAD-2 Satellite at the time and place you purchase your Apollo.
I live in Australia. Can I purchase my unit from an authorized retailer in the US, or EU, or Canada, and still qualify for the promotion?
Again, no. Just like every other region, Australian customers must purchase their Apollo from authorized Australian dealers to qualify. Since you are not in one of the above listed countries, you will receive a UAD-2 Satellite when you purchase a qualifying Apollo at your local store.
This example applies to any other region. Your shipping address must be in the same region where you purchased your Apollo, otherwise you do not quality for a UAD-2 Satellite.
What qualifies as a region?

Ok, got it. How long should I expect to wait for my UAD-2 Satellite to arrive?
Approximately 4-6 weeks. You’ll receive a shipping notification to the email address you provided when it’s on its way.
Do you deliver to P.O. Boxes?
No. We must have a physical address in order to deliver your UAD-2 Satellite.
Do you deliver to APO/FPO addresses?
No. Because of our shipping partners’ requirements we are unable to ship to APO/FPO addresses. Customers who use APO/FPO addresses should provide a qualifying address of a friend or family member where we can ship your UAD-2 Satellite.
I am usually not home during the day. Does the package require a signature?
Yes. Many of our customers provide a work or business address for us to ship to for this reason.
My home/building requires an entrance code. Will you still deliver?
No. Our shipping partners will usually not deliver to an address that requires a code to gain access. Please provide an alternate address.
My package was returned to Universal Audio before I could get it. Can you resend it?
No. If you anticipate being out of town or unable to retrieve your package, please provide an address where someone can sign for it and hold it until you are able to retrieve it. If you find yourself in a bind, please contact our customer support team, but please do your best to make alternate arrangements.
