Overview

Audio Interface with Realtime UAD SOLO Core Processing for Mac and Windows.

The Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 audio interface heritage edition from Universal Audio combines their flagship audio conversion with powerful UAD plug-in processing for a premium recording experience. It features two Unison mic preamps that provide the input impedance, gain staging and circuit behaviors of Neve, API and Universal Audio preamps, allowing you to capture rich, musical recordings with your favorite microphones. The Thunderbolt 3 connection offers blazing-fast speeds and compatibility with the latest Mac computers, providing ample bandwidth for high track counts and zero-latency monitoring.

High-Quality Audio Conversion for Flawless Recordings

With 24-bit/192kHz audio conversion, the Apollo Solo Heritage Edition delivers pristine sound quality for recording vocals, acoustic instruments, drums and more. Its premium components and thoughtful circuit design result in a transparent, open sound with wide dynamic range and low noise—the hallmarks of a professional interface.

Powerful UAD Processing With Real-time Monitoring

The Apollo Solo Heritage Edition provides access to UAD's library of over 100 plug-ins for recording and mixing, including emulations of Neve, Pultec, EMT plate reverbs and vintage guitar amps. Its onboard DSP allows you to run multiple plug-ins at once with near-zero latency so you can apply EQ, compression, reverb and other processing as you track through the Apollo Solo Heritage Edition and hear the results in real time.

Seamless Integration With LUNA Recording System

LUNA is Universal Audio's free music production software designed to work seamlessly with Apollo interfaces like the Apollo Solo Heritage Edition. It offers an intuitive single-window layout, unlimited track count and native support for UAD plug-ins. LUNA also provides exclusive instruments like the Moog Minimoog, additional tools, such as Neve Summing and Studer multitrack tape machines, and accelerated real-time UAD monitoring for lag-free tracking and mixing.

Roadworthy Design and Premium Components

Despite its small size, the Apollo Solo Heritage Edition is built to withstand the rigors of travel and extended use. Its all-metal chassis protects the premium components inside, which include high-performance converters, a discrete headphone amplifier and a Thunderbolt 3 connection for plug-and-play connectivity with Mac computers. Two front-panel mic preamps, stereo line inputs and monitor outputs provide the I/O necessary for professional recording in a portable interface.
