A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin’s Unison technology gives you the tone of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps — including their all-important 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, with more emulations available at the UA Online Store.

Apollo Twin's smart feature set includes two class-leading mic/line preamps, two analog line outputs, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs for full resolution at all listening levels, and up to eight additional channels of digital input via Optical connection. Onboard UAD SOLO or DUO Processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Live and more.

With its ergonomic desktop design, rugged aluminum construction, and front panel headphone and instrument connections, Apollo Twin has all the right tools, all in the right place.

Getting past the Hype
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I wanted to like this unit, after all the hype and spending so much money on a simple 2-channel interface. But as soon as I opened the box I began to see the issues. Cons: 1) Made in China (not expected of UA at this price) 2) Cheap Power Supply (not expected at this price) 3) Difficult software set up (requires download with manipulative sales gimmicks) 4) Cumbersome software user interface (too many places to lose signal) 5) Erroneous User Manual (makes no mention of important connection issues - like not being able to share this unit on Thunderbolt port with another unit on Firewire port) 6) No software disc, No connection cord, No printed manual. 7) Plugins have poor presets and poor documentation. 8) Customer Support appears to be non-existent and does not respond. Pros: 1) Good sound quality (although not noticeably better than much cheaper units) 2) Some DSP Plugins work well. (But not many.) 3) Very low latency.
