Overview

The Universal Audio Apollo x4 audio interface leads its class in performance and features. It delivers elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, four Unison-enabled preamps and QUAD Core real-time UAD plug-in processing. The Apollo x4 accomplishes all of this in a sleek, desktop unit with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Mac and Windows.

Four Unison preamps

Apollo x4 features four Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, Helios, API, Manley, UA and many more. Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres—including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware.

Elite-class A/D and D/A conversion

Apollo desktop interfaces are used to create exceptional-sounding records every day. To improve upon the previous generation, Universal Audio engineers designed the Apollo x4’s audio conversion to deliver a striking 127 dB dynamic range and -117 dB THD+N, giving Apollo x4 a spacious, organic sound that easily rivals dedicated high-end converters costing much more.

Dual headphone outputs

In addition to its four Unison-equipped preamps, The UA Apollo x4 offers two independent headphone outs and two Hi-Z instrument inputs for easy collaboration. Plus, with a total of four line outs, optical ADAT/SPDIF input and output, dedicated monitor remote controls, and a built-in Talkback mic, the 12 x 18 Apollo x4 can serve as the powerful centerpiece of your professional desktop studio.

Flexible connectivity

The Universal Audio Apollo x4 features Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Combine up to four Thunderbolt Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices—adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo X rackmount unit, you can use Apollo x4 as a desktop monitor control with additional I/O and DSP power.
