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

Apollo Twin reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog 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 SOLO 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 behaviors. 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 analog line outputs, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs for full resolution at all listening levels, and up to eight additional channels of digital input via Optical connection. Onboard UAD SOLO or DUO Processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live and more.

With its ergonomic desktop design, rugged aluminum construction, and front panel headphone and instrument connections, Apollo Twin has all the right tools, all in the right place.

Get past the Hype
Review by Fossil Man
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.

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.

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)
