Product Description

A complete ground-up redesign of the original, highly successful Apollo Twin, the Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo MKII expands the interface’s dynamic range, while maintaining extremely low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion). The Apollo Twin MkII DUO is a desktop 2 x 6 Thunderbolt audio interface with realtime UAD-2 DUO Core Processing for Mac and Windows.

Apollo Twin. A Next-Generation Desktop Record-Making Machine — for Mac and Windows.
Apollo Twin MkII is a ground-up redesign of the world’s most popular professional desktop recording interface — delivering enhanced audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 2 x 6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows features available onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, Unison™ technology, and the next-generation A/D and D/A conversion you’ve heard on hundreds of hit records.

Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
Apollo Twin MkII improves upon the original Apollo Twin’s gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned A/D and D/A conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD. This next-generation conversion results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in recordings — as heard on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Brad Paisley, and more.

Unison™ Mic Preamp Emulation Technology for Neve, API, Manley, UA & More*
A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin MkII’s Unison technology gives you the genuine tone of the world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps — including Neve,® API,® Manley,® and UA — complete with their signature impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors.*

Based on Apollo Twin MkII’s unrivaled hardware-software integration, Unison lets you record at near-zero latency through preamp emulations like the included UA 610-B Tube Preamp, for authentic analog sound unmatched by other interfaces. Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin MkII’s front panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for exclusive guitar and bass amp models from Fender,® Marshall,® Ampeg,® and more.*

Realtime UAD Processing — a Studio Full of Analog Sounds
Building upon the Apollo tradition, Apollo Twin MkII opens up a range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with a choice of UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, or SOLO Core processing onboard, Apollo Twin MkII lets you record through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — at near-zero latency — including genuine analog emulations from Neve, Studer, Ampex, API, Lexicon, Manley, Fender, and more.*

Right out of the box, the Apollo Twin MkII includes the “Realtime Analog Classics” suite of UAD plug-ins — the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Marshall® Plexi Classic Guitar Amp, Ampeg® SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp, legacy LA-2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and more — so you have a rack full of bonafide audio classics already onboard.

Unlike competing interfaces, the Apollo Twin MkII powers UAD plug-ins inside all major DAWs for mixing and mastering (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64 format), greatly offloading the processing required from your host Mac or PC.

Available with UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, and SOLO Core Processing
In addition to the popular UAD-2 SOLO and DUO Core models, Apollo Twin MkII is available in an ultra-powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core model, allowing more plug-in horsepower for running the most complex and convincing analog emulations on the market.

Built to Record: Improved Monitoring and Workflow
Apollo Twin MkII offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII’s scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

Professional Performance and Scalability with Console Application
Users of Apollo Twin MkII can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo 8, 8p, or 16 rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.

Great Investment
What is your opinion of this product?
I love my new interface! UA gave away some great plug-ins with it, and it came super fast without having to pay for shipping. I have been upgrading my studio piece by piece for the past few years, and AMS has made this process easier than ever before. Thanks AMS!

I absolutely love my new Apollo Twin MkII Duo
What is your opinion of this product?
I've used other interfaces in this price-range but the Apollo Twin MkII is definitely the best bang for your buck. You plug it in, turn it on, and load up one of UAD's plugins and right away you hear the deference. No lie, It's an automatic game changer, and when you use UAD's replicated plugins, 9 times out of 10 it's just like using the real hardware version.

Game changer!
What is your opinion of this product?
This interface is great! The quality of the sound, real-time zero latency tracking, and built in processors is amazing. On top of that, the interface itself is built very well. Although UAD plug-ins can be kind of expensive, this is definitely worth the money.
