Product Description

The Apollo Duo Audio Interface from Universal Audio is the first professional, high-resolution computer audio interface delivering the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording! The Apollo is a 18 x 24 FireWire/Thunderbolt (TM) - ready interface that combines genuine UA analog design with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz sound quality and onboard Realtime UAD Processing. Music producers and performers can finally track audio through a range of classic UAD analog emulation plug-ins - from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon and more - in real time, and with a sleek, elegant workflow on both Mac and PC with the Apollo.

The Universal Audio Apollo Duo Audio Interface Features

  • 18 x 24 simultaneous input/output channels
  • 14 channels of digital-to-analog conversion via
  • 10 channels of digital I/O via
  • Microphone Preamplifiers
  • Monitoring
  • Onboard UAD-2 Processing
  • Software
  • UAD Meter and Control Panel application
Universal Audio designed the Apollo play a central role in a modern Mac- or PC-based studio, incorporating a true no compromise approach to audio quality. Offering extremely high-resolution sonics, with the lowest THD and highest dynamic range in its class, the Apollo audio interface goes above and beyond today’s standards. It allows you to place multiple 1176 compressors on your drum inputs, or record vocals through a classic Neve 1073 EQ, or even track the entire band through a Studer A800 tape machine in real time - making Apollo's sonic options virtually endless. It offers compatibility with Intel's Thunderbolt technology (sold separately) and offers many times the bandwidth of FireWire.

The Apollo's numerous design details give you a fast, natural workflow - and better results. Physical front-panel controls for all the most commonly used features, including Preamp and Monitor level knobs, channel selection, mic pad and low cut, phantom power, and even dual headphone outs with independent level control. Smart Hi-Z inputs on the front panel detect when you've connected your guitar or bass, and automatically enable hardware and software monitoring. You can have all this and much, much more the Apollo Duo Audio Interface!

My Dream Interface have landed!!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I've been wanting to upgrade to a professional interface for over a year now, but couldn't afford it. UAD Apollo has always been on my wish list along with Apogee Symphony. When I saw AMS offering 8 pay payments...my dreams became reality. This interface sounds EXCELLENT!!! The Analog Classics Bundle gets you going right out the box. If that wasn't enough, UA through in the Helios 69 Eq free as well. This purchase took my studio to professional level with one purchase.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How well are the controls and connections laid out?
Setup was a breeze... Software and hardware loading up in sequence and was playing music in 15 minutes.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The features were what I expected. I would have like to see an easier way to route an additional pair of monitors.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Apollo is the leader in it's class...hands down!! The converters and pre-amps are wonderful by itself. With all the I/O and sleek design chassis I couldn't ask for more.
