Overview

Backed by a long legacy of developing innovative and cutting-edge audio products, Universal Audio is a trusted brand in home studios and professional recording facilities all around the globe. With the launch of the Apollo series, they have redefined professional recording interfaces; merging world-class digital audio conversion with real-time plug-in processing for one of the closest possible experiences you can get to analog recording in today' digital environment. Now the Apollo family is growing yet again. Introducing the Apollo Twin USB strictly for Windows-based computers.

Apollo Twin USB reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 audio interface for Windows 7 and 8 combines the impeccable 24/192 kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD Processing and Unison technology ” a breakthrough in classic mic preamp emulation.

With its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing, Apollo Twin USB lets you record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins ” from Neve, Studer, Manley, Marshall, Lexicon, API, and more* ” putting racks of vintage EQs, compressors, mic preamps, tape machines, reverbs, and guitar amps at your fingertips.

A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin USB's Unison technology gives you the tone of the world's most sought-after mic preamps ” including their impedance, gain stage œsweet spots, and component-level circuit behaviors. Based on unprecedented hardware-software integration between Apollo' mic preamps and its onboard UAD plug-in processing, Unison lets you record through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-in, with more emulations available at the UA Online Store.

Apollo Twin USB' 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 things no one ever mentions about the Apollo twin USB

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

UAD plugins are nice works well like any other audio interface. How ever the drivers are not signed so beware in order to use this you have to remove secure boot in your bios and you have to run Windows in test mode so the driver verification is shut off. If you are unaware of this it could take some time to figure out. A lot of price are mad because they feel as though they are compromising their system in a way you are. It's not cool anytime you have to shutdown security features. I also have no better latency with this USB 3.0 over my Roland Super UA which is USB 2.0. They are both equally faster so if you are buying this trying to shave off some milliseconds you Will Not. The Fairchild UAD plug in does bring some life to a mix. That is the only one so far I am really impressed with . I just received this this past week and It is a good unit though it does get quite warm. I hope that is not a near future issue. I am writing this review so others will know what to expect.

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

This box replaced a Steinberg audio interface on a large multi computer scoring rig. I record just one mic when I do record analogue. The converters on the UAD interface are amazing. The headphone amp is stellar! Best $$ I've spent in years.

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

I got this interface to replace a avid m box 3 and I couldn't have been more happier! The sound is more detailed and clear. The unison technology is that cherry on top that now I wonder how did I manage with out it.
