Overview

The Thunderbolt Option Card for the Apollo audio interface provides greater UAD plug-in instances, improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency versus Apollo' standard FireWire connection. Compatible with Intel' new Thunderbolt technology on the latest generation of iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, and Mac minis, the Thunderbolt Option Card offers unrivaled bandwidth and next-generation connectivity for the Apollo interface.

The user-installable Thunderbolt Option Card includes two Thunderbolt ports, and easily slides into the expansion bay of the Apollo. Bus power is provided to all downstream Thunderbolt devices, allowing music producers to connect peripherals in series with the Apollo interface ” including hard drives, processors, and computer displays.

When the Thunderbolt Option Card is engaged, Apollo' FireWire 800 ports are instantly reconfigured as a hub for connecting FireWire devices, such as a hard drive or a UAD-2 Satellite.

new product with bugs to work out

By JAMES HAWKINS

from Los Angeles,CA

I would love to give this option a 5 star review however after following the instructions to the letter my iMac, which sees my Apollo using Firewire 800 instantly, still says nothing is connected to the Thunderbolt input after hooking it up with the new card. .... plus this adapter card does NOT come with a Thunderbolt cable, which they should include to ensure the connection to the computer meets the new Thunderbolt standard. Did anyone even test this technology out before selling it as an option?
