    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). Next-generation sound quality is achieved courtesy of Unison™ technology, where dual mic preamps and a front-panel DI emulate the kind of world-class gear musicians only dream about. Gain stage “sweet spots” and circuit behaviors of tube and solid-state preamps, as well as the cream-of-the-crop guitar amps and stompboxes are all faithfully recreated.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I’ve been debating on getting outboard gear or to invest in the UAD line. Well needless to say I opted for UAD since I’d get more bang for the buck up front. Holy $h!+! This thing is amazing, I’m not sure why I didn’t make this move earlier. It was very easy to hook up and Install all the software and plugins. It is very addicting buying plugins, but really what they give you when you buy is more than enough to get started. I know a lot of people say that it don’t sound the same as the real thing when it’s A/B with the real gear, but when you hear a song on the radio could you tell if it’s UAD or outboard gear? Probably not.
