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 - 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.

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!

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
What a nightmare ! Unit works good if you plan on using UA Plugz and only working at 44.1 .. whci I never use .. From 88.2 and up .. i get about 4 - 7 plugs. Unit came with a problem , been back at UA for almost 3 weeks and their repair tech says nothing wrong , even though I spent lots of time with there techs , who took control of my system and saw the same problem .. hmmm Not a Artist friendly company ! Talking with metric Halo and Apogee abd selling this unit. I spent a lot of time doing research regarding plug count .. several phone calls , etc .. all very misleading .. never a direct answer .. nw I know why.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How well are the controls and connections laid out?
unit is easy to use .. install , set up .. except for the problem with this unit which is Firewire / TB related.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
I originally liked the idea of UA .. where they are going .. idea wise .. thunderbolt , newer technology and such .. My Black Lion modified Digi 002R sounded better and no problems.
