16 channels of premium audio with realtime UAD plug-in power.
The new Apollo 16 is an elegant update to UA's premium audio interface, delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. Perfect for professional studios, this 18 x 20 Thunderbolt interface offers twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p, making it ideal for pairing with mixing consoles and outboard processors. Works with Mac or Windows.
Apollo 16 further distinguishes itself with Realtime UAD Processing, letting you record at near-zero latency through the full range of UAD plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, and more. Apollo Expanded software now allows cascading up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices in a single system over Thunderbolt (Mac), so you can scale up your studio as your needs grow.
With its powerful onboard UAD-2 QUAD processing, genuine UA analog design, and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 16 puts class-leading audio performance in a sleek new package.
Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
Apollo 16 improves upon the original Apollo' gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned, class-leading digital conversion ” giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD. This results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in your recordings, from tracking and overdubbing, to mixing and mastering.
Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for Tracking, Mixing, and Mastering
While Apollo 16' œnatural sound is very open and transparent, it can quickly deliver a stunning range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with generous UAD-2 QUAD processing onboard, Apollo' DSP Acceleration allows for recording through UAD Powered Plug-Ins ” with as low as sub-2ms latency ” letting you monitor and œprint audio using classic analog emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more.

Using Apollo, UAD plug-ins are also available during mixing and mastering, putting UAD plug-ins (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64) at your disposal throughout the creative process.
