Apollo Twin reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac combines the same impeccable 24/192kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD SOLO or DUO Processing. So you can record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins - from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, API and more* - putting racks of vintage EQs, compressors, tape machines, reverbs, and guitar amps at your fingertips.

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.

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. The Twin's onboard UAD SOLO or DUO Processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Ableton 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.

    Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

    I don't understand why would they let this product out on the market. Its an interface, it stays on for long periods of time. And my guess is something will eventually over heat and get damaged.

    Will not work with OS X volume controls

    Pros

    • Clear Sound

    Cons

    • Limited Functions

    Best Uses

    • When native volume controls are not needed

    Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

    Be aware that this product will not work with native volume controls in the OS. There are many ways to spend money on plug-ins, but no way to make basic OS controlled volume to work. Competitors do this, I am not sure why UA can't figure it out -- so why trust the plug-ins for extra $$$.....

    This Interface is AWESOME!!!!!

    By TERRACE

    from Greensboro

    Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

    I am a serious hobbyist who spends alot of time in my project home studio. I been eyeing this unit for some time and once I purchased it I am so glad I did. The near zero latency response is just as UA stated it would be. The 610B preamp that comes included sounds great with SM7B dynamic microphone. This along with new IMac has made my workflow so much smoother. If you can get it I recommend that you should!

    A MUST HAVE

    By Ross Ryan

    from Denver

    Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

    The next best bet to the Apollo Quad. I needed something small on a budget under $1000 that had processing power. This is the solution! Not only are the UAD plugin ins out of this world but so is the sonic fidelity of this unit. My mixes improved almost over night and I have been able to hear some much more detail in my monitoring. I thought interfaces wouldn't make a big difference in monitoring quality but wow they sure do. The package of plug ins that comes free with this are actually my favorites of all the demos I have tried. The unit comes loaded with just about ever UAD plug available to trial for 14days. Also included a $50 voucher and a discount deal on plug in bundles. You don't know what you're missing until you own this unit! Or if u have the $ laying around spring for the Quad.
