OVERVIEW

Elite audio conversion with new HEXA Core processing and surround sound monitoring

Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo x8 distinguishes itself with four Unison-enabled mic preamps, providing authentic emulations of preamps from Neve, API, Manley, Helios, SSL and more, plus all-new HEXA Core processing—yielding 50 percent more DSP for running UAD Powered Plug-Ins in real time. In addition to its elite audio conversion, Apollo x8 features optimized level compatibility with professional +24 dBu gear, as well as an integrated monitor controller and a built-in talkback mic.

The Apollo X series is the largest leap forward in history for Universal Audio’s award-winning Apollo interface, allowing engineers, musicians, producers, project studio owners, and sound designers to track, overdub, and mix with new elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, HEXA Core UAD plug-in processing, and 7.1 surround sound monitoring—all in a sleek Thunderbolt 3 interface for Mac** or PC. The Apollo x8 is backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2 on Mac computers with an adapter.
