Designed for producers, engineers and creators in need of professional-grade sound and seamless portability, the Solo Thunderbolt interface is the most travel-friendly way to produce with genuine Universal Audio sound.

Harness Genuine UA Sound With Real-time Plug-Ins

What sets the Apollo Solo Thunderbolt interface apart is its realtime UAD DSP and bundled plug-in packages. SOLO Core DSP enables you to monitor and print through UAD's award-winning analog emulations, like 1176 and LA-2A compressors, Pultec EQs, vintage reverbs and guitar amps, without taxing your computer. Two Unison mic preamps—with impedance matching—let you track vocals, acoustic instruments, drums and more through UAD preamp plug-ins for genuine analog character. Four additional plug-in inserts per channel give you analog-style tone shaping, dynamics and effects when recording and mixing.

Translation-Ready Monitors With Perfect Mix DSP

To make sure your mixes translate perfectly across different listening setups, the included Harbinger VARI nearfield monitors feature a Perfect Mix DSP engine with switchable voicings that enable you to check for compatibility with every size of system. You can choose between the SM505 that features a 5" driver or the SM508 that features an 8" driver either of which make a great choice for your studio, or anywhere you need to produce great audio. With Bluetooth connectivity allowing wireless mix referencing from your phone or tablet, these monitors provide both accuracy and versatility.

Premium Components for Reliable Performance

Bundled Livewire Advantage cables and sturdy Proline stands securely position the VARI monitors at an optimal height for mixing and production work. The Universal Audio Apollo Solo Thunderbolt Heritage Edition interface brings you esteemed UA preamps, plug-ins and conversion in a convenient bus-powered unit.
