Universal Audio Apollo Range Audio Interfaces

Universal Audio is known for their powerful UAD plugins and amazing audio interfaces, which are available in rack or desktop versions depending on the size of your setup. The interfaces have Unison preamps, and the secret to Unison’s brilliance is the hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and it’s onboard Realtime UAD processing.

Apollo X

The Apollo X Range includes the X4, which has a DUO Core processor, and X6, X8, X8P and X16, which are rack-mountable, and have HEXA Core processors.

The Apollo X series also has new Dual-Crystal clocking, with dedicated crystal oscillators for 44.1/88.2/176.4 kHz and 48/96/192 kHz sample rates —resulting in extremely low jitter, measured at less than 10 picoseconds at all sample rates. For you, this means pure, artifact-free recordings and solid stereo imaging.

Thunderbolt connectivity and real time processing means there will be almost zero latency. Apollo X series audio interfaces work with all major DAWs.


Overview by GAK

The Apollo X6 Thunderbolt 3 is a great audio interface for electronic musicians and producers working on audio and music for TV, video games, and the web.

The interface has two Unison-enabled mic preamps, which deliver genuine tones of preamps from Neve, API, Manley, Helios, SSL, and more. Some of the lowest signal-to-noise ratio of any interface has been created with the newly-designed analog circuitry giving you audio quality between 129 dB dynamic range and -188dB. Work in 5.1 surround sound using speaker calibration, and built-in talkback lets you communicate easily.

The Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle is included, giving you a large range of sound options, including Marshall Plexi, Pultec, and Fairchild modelling EQ, and lots of effects such as reverb, delay, compression, and distortion.

If you need more inputs and outputs, you can combine the Apollo X6 Thunderbolt 3 with up to four more Thunderbolt-equipped Apollos, and the X6 allows for backwards compatibility with Thunderbolt 1 and 2. Compatible with all major DAWs such as Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and Ableton.

Upgrade to the Apollo X8 for more I/O.

*Please note - Thunderbolt cable is not included.
