It's time for a new approach to digital audio — it's time for Universal Audio's Apollo firewire audio interface. Digital audio workstations have become powerful enough to complete projects we wouldn't have dreamt of ten years ago, and technical advances make quality recording equipment more affordable than ever. However, nothing can truly replace the sound of the analog recording equipment that crafted the sound of modern music. Universal Audio has made industry-leading analog recording equipment for decades, and now presents the ultimate marriage of analog and digital technology: Apollo. The combination of a world-class analog front end, class-leading digital conversion quality, and the unprecedented addition of UAD-2 DSP processing for UAD Powered plug-ins, makes Apollo an entirely new way to record, mix, and master
There are times when your computer just doesn't have the power and speed to run all the plug-ins your recording session needs. With UAD-2 powered plug-ins, the processing load is taken outside of the computer and borne by UAD's super-powerful Analog Devices SHARC processors. Universal Audio's new Apollo interface has these SHARC processors built in, and is available in DUO (two SHARCs) or QUAD (four SHARCs) models.
Universal Audio has earned a reputation for making world class analog audio gear. UA's Apollo features an impeccable analog front end with full-featured mic preamps with direct front-panel control, as well as two front-panel JFET DIs which offer high-quality inputs for high-impedance instruments like electric guitars and basses.
Bottom line: Apollo sounds amazing, and offers superior dynamic range and total harmonic distortion than other interfaces in its price range.
Apollo's hardware and software settings can be saved with your session file, for true console-style recall when you load your project.
The next generation of connectivity, Thunderbolt gives you the speed and ultra-fast performance of a PCI Express system — but with the convenience of a single cable! Apollo's Thunderbolt expansion port paves the way to the future with a soon-to-be-released Thunderbolt card.
With Apollo, you can record, mix, and master with authentic emulations of vintage recording gear, while saving your computer's resources for other tasks. Apollo arrives with the Analog Classics Software Bundle, and you can add to the system any of the UAD-2 Powered Plug-ins you desire! Load it up with SSL or Neve console channel strips, echoes & delays, equalizers, reverbs, tape emulations, flangers, compressors, mastering plug-ins, and more!
