    Product Description

    Apollo 8p is a dramatic update to one of the world’s most popular professional audio interfaces, delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording.

Built on genuine UA analog design and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion.

    Universal Audio Apollo Quad 8P Thunderbolt Audio Interface Features

    • Next-generation Apollo A/D and D/A conversion for professional music production
    • 8 Unison-enabled mic preamps for tracking full bands through preamp emulations from Neve, API, and Universal Audio
    • Onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core DSP allows Real-time UAD Processing — record through plug-ins from Neve, Lexicon, Studer, Marshall, Ampex, and more  
    • 16 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 audio interface for Mac with powerful Console 2.0 software control
    • Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD devices total over Thunderbolt (Mac)
    • Convenient front panel monitoring functions including Alt Speakers, Dim, and Mono
    • Includes “Real-time Analog Classics Plus” UAD plug-in bundle with 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A, 1176, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs, and more
    • World class UA analog design, superior components, and premium build quality
    • Apollo 8p puts class-leading sonic performance in a sleek new package.
    • Apollo 8p further distinguishes itself with Real-time UAD Processing and Unison technology, letting you record at near-zero latency through the full range of UAD plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, and more — including new mic preamp emulations from Neve, API and Universal Audio. Apollo Expanded software now allows cascading up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices in a single system over Thunderbolt (Mac), so you can scale up your studio as your needs grow.
    Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
    Apollo 8p improves upon the original Apollo’s gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned, class-leading A/D and D/A conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD. This results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in your recordings, from tracking and overdubbing, to mixing and mastering.

    Eight Mic Preamps with Unison Technology
    Apollo 8p comes equipped with eight Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track larger projects with a range of colorful mic preamp sounds. A Universal Audio breakthrough, Unison technology nails the tone of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps — including their impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors.

    Based on unprecedented hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD plug-in processing, Unison lets you record through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, or exclusive preamp emulations from API and Neve.

    Unison technology is further enhanced in Apollo 8p to include its panel Hi-Z instrument inputs, giving you dead-on impedance and gain matching for new stompbox models.

    Real-time UAD Plug-In Processing for Tracking, Mixing, and Mastering
    While Apollo 8p’s “natural” sound is very open and transparent, it can quickly deliver a stunning range of classic analog tones and color via its Real-time UAD Processing. Available with generous UAD-2 QUAD processing onboard, Apollo’s DSP Acceleration allows for recording through UAD Powered Plug-Ins, with as low as sub-2ms latency, letting you monitor and “print” audio using classic analog emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more.

    The Apollo 8p’s bundled “Real-time Analog Classics Plus” suite of UAD plug-ins gives you the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A, 1176, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs, and more, so you have a rack full of bonafide audio classics, right out of the box.
    Using Apollo, UAD plug-ins are also available during mixing and mastering, putting UAD plug-ins (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64) at your disposal throughout the creative process.

    Apollo Expanded and Console 2.0
    Thanks to Apollo Expanded software, users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows. Apollo Expanded also provides seamless integration with previous generation Apollos over Thunderbolt.

    With Apollo 8p’s Console 2.0 application — a complete re-imagining of Apollo’s original Console software — you can take advantage of over 25 user-requested features such as Channel Strip presets, Drag & Drop functionality, dynamically resizable windows, and more.

    Improved Monitoring and Workflow
    Apollo 8p features a host of front-panel upgrades over the original Apollo, including Alt Speakers, Dim, and Mono functions as well as input and output metering capabilities via the new Meter button. These features combine with Apollo’s system scalability to make it the new standard in professional multi-channel audio recording.

    This product is amazing. Worth all my hard work and savings. I've had it for about a week and already noticed a huge difference in sound and recordings. I love that I can pick my preamps and add plugins without having the computer stress so much. Universal Audio is the way to go!
