The Universal Audio Apollo Twin USB Heritage Edition is a premium desktop audio interface that delivers elite-level audio conversion and real-time UAD-2 DUO processing for Windows users. This special Heritage Edition comes with an unrivaled suite of vintage modeled plug ins, valued at $1,300.

Unison-Enabled Preamps Emulate Iconic Gear

The Apollo Twin USB Heritage Edition's two Unison enabled mic preamps provide the tone and feel of classic preamps like Neve, API, Manley, and Universal Audio's own 610 tube preamp. When used with the included Console 2 software, the preamps physically change to emulate the hardware circuitry and components of the modeled preamp. This results in recordings that sound like they were captured through the actual vintage gear.

Elite 24-bit/192kHz Audio Conversion

Featuring premium 24-bit/192kHz conversion, the Apollo Twin USB Heritage Edition provides pristine audio quality that rivals any high-end converter. Dual-Crystal clocking results in an ultralow jitter signal path for superior imaging and transient response.
