OVERVIEW

High-resolution desktop music production interface for Windows computers.

Backed by a long legacy of developing innovative and cutting-edge audio products, Universal Audio is a trusted brand in home studios and professional recording facilities all around the globe. With the launch of the Apollo series, they have redefined professional recording interfaces; merging world-class digital audio conversion with real-time plug-in processing for one of the closest possible experiences you can get to analog recording in today' digital environment. Now the Apollo family is growing yet again. Introducing the Apollo Twin USB strictly for Windows-based computers.

Apollo Twin USB reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 audio interface for Windows 7 and 8 combines the impeccable 24/192 kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD Processing and Unison technology ” a breakthrough in classic mic preamp emulation.

With its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing, Apollo Twin USB lets you record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins ” from Neve, Studer, Manley, Marshall, 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 USB's Unison technology gives you the tone of the world's most sought-after mic preamps ” including their impedance, gain stage œsweet spots, and component-level circuit behaviors. Based on unprecedented hardware-software integration between Apollo' mic preamps and its onboard UAD plug-in processing, Unison lets you record through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-in, with more emulations available at the UA Online Store.

Apollo Twin USB' 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. Its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Live, and more.

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

    I've stuck with a Windows recording setup for years, and have been waiting for Universal Audio to get on board with PC users in a more serious way. That finally happened, and I bought an Apollo Twin USB right away. I'm using it for project studio recordings and overdubs at home, and it sounds absolutely great...clear, full, uncolored (unless you want that), and fully pro. I can also take it in a gig bag from home to studio with no difference in my work flow, sound, or available plugins, which is a big bonus. I've owned several interfaces and worked in many studios over the years, and this is the best. UA also makes the best plugins around...they're not cheap, but man are they good. Highly recommended.

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

      This little interface saved my first mix and mastering job. The plugins sound fantastic and this interface opens the door to UA's lineup of classic emulations. Be patient with the install as it takes time for all the drivers to come in at the end of the software install. The unit is very simple to use and the quality of the digital conversion is excellent. Can be pricey, especially for hobbyists, but if you're serious about music recording it is worth the investment. It's scalable so as you expand your studio you can add on UAD-2 devices for more power. Thanks UA!
