Finding the right audio interface for your recording studio is easier than you think - in fact, it's as simple as sticking with a leader in the technology, otherwise known as Universal Audio. Pro-level sound engineers and producers are more than familiar with Universal Audio's rich history and reputation for providing first-class recording tools. And as you can see from the wide range of best sellers and top-rated items that make up this catalog, their audio interfaces are clearly on the minds of many aspiring producers.
By allowing you to connect various vocals and instruments to a computer and converting them from an analog to digital signal, an audio interface is essential to your recording setup. Of course, the right one for you will depend on a few factors, including your budget, the amount of outputs and inputs you need and whether or not you go with a USB or FireWire route. A thunderbolt is another common connectivity route, and the Apollo Quad Audio Interface with Thunderbolt Option Card is a best seller. Featuring 4 ultra-transparent mic preamps, 8 line inputs/outputs, dual headphone outs and more, Apollo is one of the most popular audio interfaces in the world, and you'll know why after using it.
Or, if prefer to use a FireWire, check out the Apollo FireWire Audio Interface with Quad Processing. Ideal for studios running original Mac Pro towers and Windows 7 machines, this 18 x 24 FireWire 8-equipped interface is perfect for anyone who's looking for a classic analog sound. Universal Audio also has terrific options for aspiring producers with home setups, and the Apollo Twin SOLO with Realtime UAD Processing will inspire your musical creativity in ways you've never imagined. This 2 x 6 Thunderbolt audio interface is for Macs and lets you record your music in real time through a full range of UAD plug-ins. Giving you vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, and guitars at your fingertips, the Apollo Twin's capabilities have no end in sight.
By now you're probably anxious to jump in and look at the rest of what Universal Audio has in store, so we'll leave the rest up to you. No modern recording studio is complete without an audio interface - and although you'll find a seemingly endless range to choose from in this day and age, you can take comfort in knowing that Universal Audio's are considered by many to be the best.
