Perfect for professional studios, this 18 x 20 Thunderbolt interface offers twice the analogue connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p, making it ideal for pairing with mixing consoles and outboard processors.
Apollo 16 further distinguishes itself with Realtime UAD Processing, letting you record at near-zero latency through the full range of UAD plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, and more.* Apollo Expanded software now allows cascading up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices in a single system over Thunderbolt (Mac), so you can scale up your studio as your needs grow.
With its powerful onboard UAD-2 QUAD processing, genuine UA analogue design, and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 16 puts class-leading audio performance in a sleek new package.
Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
Apollo 16 improves upon the original Apollo's gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned, class-leading digital conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD. This results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in your recordings, from tracking and overdubbing, to mixing and mastering.
Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for Tracking, Mixing and Mastering
While Apollo 16's 'natural' sound is very open and transparent, it can quickly deliver a stunning range of classic analogue tones and colour via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with generous UAD-2 QUAD processing onboard, Apollo's DSP Acceleration allows for recording through UAD Powered Plug-Ins — with as low as sub-2ms latency — letting you monitor and 'print' audio using classic analogue emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more.*
The Apollo 16's bundled 'Realtime analogue Classics Plus' suite of UAD plug-ins gives you the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A, 1176, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs, and more, so you have a rack full of bonafide audio classics, right out of the box.
Using Apollo, UAD plug-ins are also available during mixing and mastering, putting UAD plug-ins (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64) at your disposal throughout the creative process.
Apollo Expanded and Console 2.0
Thanks to Apollo Expanded software, users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows. Apollo Expanded also provides seamless integration with previous generation Apollos over Thunderbolt.
With Apollo 16's Console 2.0 application — a complete re-imagining of Apollo's original Console software — you can take advantage of over 25 user-requested features such as Channel Strip presets, Drag & Drop functionality, dynamically resizable windows, and more.
