The Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analogue studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac combines the same impeccable 24/192 kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD DUO or DUO Processing. Plus it introduces new Unison™ technology, a breakthrough in classic mic preamp emulation. Record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins — from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, API and more — putting racks of vintage EQs, compressors, mic preamps, tape machines, reverbs, and guitar amps at your fingertips.
A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin's Unison technology gives you the tone of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps — including their all-important impedance, gain stage 'sweet spots', and component-level circuit behaviours. Based on unprecedented hardware- software integration between Apollo's mic preamps and its onboard UAD plug-in processing, Unison lets you record through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, with more emulations coming soon.
Apollo Twin's smart feature set includes two class-leading mic/line preamps, two analogue line outputs, two digitally controlled analogue monitor outputs for full resolution at all listening levels, and up to eight additional channels of digital input via Optical connection. Onboard UAD DUO Processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live and more.
The Apollo Twin DUO ships with the Realtime Analogue Classics' UAD plug-in bundle, featuring Legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, plus Softube Amp Room Essentials, 610-B Tube Preamp, and more. It runs UAD Powered Plug-Ins via Audio Units, VST, RTAS & AAX 64 in all major DAWs and requires Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or 10.9 Mavericks. Please note that a Thunderbolt Cable is not included.
