High-resolution desktop recording interface for use with Mac computers with onboard, realtime plug-in 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 24/192kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD SOLO or DUO Processing. So you can 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, 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.

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. The Twin's 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.

Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

I've only had this a week, and the basic setup - UA 610 mic preamp and Tektronix compressor/limiter plugins and basic reverb presets - already improved the quality of my recordings a lot. I look forward to seeing what it can do when I've learned more about how to use it.

Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO with Realtime UAD Processing:

This is a great product if you are a songwriter that just wants to get some basic demos down. Recording just a few tracks on this unit will sound great. However, if you are really seeking pro level audio quality as this unit has been advertised, you will be disappointed. This unit is on par with the Apogee duet, which is a cool little unit as well - just sounds cheap...
