Product Description for the Universal Audio Apollo Twin w/ Realtime UAD SOLO Processing

Superior Desktop Audio Conversion with Classic Analog Sound.

With its class-leading resolution and Realtime UAD Processing, Apollo Twin sets a new standard for desktop music production.This 2x6 Thunderbolt interface for Mac and Windows allows you to record with near-zero latency through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — ingeniously merging classic analog tones with cutting-edge features.

Unison Technology: The Genuine Sound of Neve, API & Manley Preamps

Apollo Twin features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, and Universal Audio. An Apollo exclusive, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware.

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo Twin’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input, and tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

A Full Suite of Classic Analog Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, Apollo Twin provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the Unison-enabled UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classic plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.

From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

Get past the Hype
Review by Fossil Man
Rating
I wanted to like this unit, after all the hype and spending so much money on a simple 2-channel interface. But as soon as I opened the box I began to see the issues.

Cons:
1) Made in China (not expected of UA at this price)
2) Cheap flimsy Power Supply (not expected at this price)
3) Difficult software set up (requires download with manipulative sales gimmicks)
4) Cumbersome software user interface (too many places to lose signal)
5) Erroneous User Manual (makes no mention of important connection issues - like not being able to share this unit on Thunderbolt port with another unit on Firewire port)
6) No software disc.
7) No connection cord, No printed manual.
7) Plugins have poor presets and poor documentation.
8) Customer Support appears to be non-existent and does not respond.

Pros:
1) Good sound quality (although not noticeably better than much cheaper units)
2) Some DSP Plugins work well. (But not many.)
3) Very low latency.

Once you get past the hype, and look at what you're getting, this is a really poor value for the high price. (Posted on 8/28/14)
