Product Description

Introduced in 2012, the Apollo series brought together the analog heritage and digital ambitions of Universal Audio like never before. The Apollo Twin Quad MKII continues that tradition, delivering breathtaking audio quality, powerful monitoring options, and Unison™ compatible preamps, all in an elegant desktop module. Four SHARC DSP (Quad) processors lighten the load on your computer’s CPU when using UAD plug-ins. Universal Audio has included a copy of their Console software, making it simple to quickly configure the Apollo Twin Quad MKII to match your system.

The Apollo Twin MkII QUAD is a desktop 2 x 6 Thunderbolt audio interface with realtime UAD-2 QUAD 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.

The clarity of this interface is astounding.

Product Review

It's like a breath of fresh air to me. Coming from a 3rd gen mbox (which i was getting a good quality mix from) this had my head spinning in circles for a second. I heard all the flaws i missed before, all the imperfections in recordings showing their ugly face. The preamp isn't sold short either, i've definitely had a big childish smile on my face as of late whenever recording. Once you get used to it's functionality it becomes easy to use in both recording and mixing. Not to mention the plugins which speak for themselves in the best way possible. This particular interface bends the phrase "its not the gear it's the ear". Whereas the ear is the alpha and omega in the situation... a good interface/monitor setup is a huge cheat code for the ear. (plus the payment plan was super convenient *blink blink*)

Great interface, perfect for your home studio setup. I’m not fully aware of everything this interface can do but the plugins that are included make this a very tough competitor when searching for an interface!

This things a BEAST

Product Review

This apollo quad is a beast, runs one of my favorite amps like the Manley voxbox as if I had it physically with me, came with some nice plug ins and instead of me using majority of the processing power on my laptop, it handles it on its own. I definitely recommend

This is a Game-Changer!

Product Review

Coming from using the 002 for my home studio to the UA Apollo Twin MKII Quad is life changing. I've heard great things about the Apollo Twin Quad but it wasn't until I purchased my own that I learned how powerful, necessary and user friendly this unit is. I love the low latency and the ability to use plugins live. The plug-ins are "Amazing!" If you're looking for a game-hanger "This Is It!"

Most amazing plugins

Product Review

After a rough start with getting it to work with my Dell XPS, I'm very glad I persisted. This thing is incredible. The ability to not only record with world class plugins on the way in is cool, but also any time you use one of the plugins in your session, the processing power is done on the apollo, leaving your computer free of load. I particularly like using the plugins on my 2bus, and for my heavy fx like revers and delays, which sound incredible. If you do buy this for a PC, make sure to follow UA's guide to a T, and it will work.

The UA plugin’s with the DSP chip technology sound amazing.

Product Review

On top of the expandability for 8 more inputs and the ability to free up computing power from your CPU, with the DSP chip, the quality of the the plugins are amazing. I still use some of my waves plugins, but not nearly as much as I use to. I converted over as many as I could to UA’s ASAP they sound way better to me.

UA Apollo Twin Magic

Product Review

I purchased the UA Apollo twin and Presonus Software after seeing a few fellow musicians using it and listening to some incredible results. I had been using Protools for ever. Well after a few weeks of use, this is the most productive piece of equipment I have ever laid my hands on. 10 Stars to UA. I’m a huge fan now!
