Overview

Pro-quality summing mixer and Thunderbolt 3 converter.

The Universal Audio Professional Streamlined Summing Bundle is perfect for anyone looking to combine multiple tracks into a main mix, including the 2-BUS+ 16-channel analog summing mixer and the Apollo X16 Heritage Edition Audio Interface. With a redesigned analog summing circuit that exceeds previous specifications, the 2-BUS+ delivers unsurpassed imaging, dimensionality, punch and headroom. While the 2-BUS+ active summing sounds incredible on its own, it also includes three custom color circuits that provide a vast array of flexibly routed tonal options. With its straightforward buttons and knobs, the 2-BUS+ puts endless combinations of robust analog sound at your fingertips. Unlike passive summing boxes that require huge amounts of make-up gain to restore the lost audio, or line mixers masquerading as “summing mixers,” the active electronics in the 2-BUS+ result in a huge soundstage and audible three-dimensionality. Panning is wide and precise, reverbs spacious and deep, bass powerful and engaging, treble and mids articulate and interesting.

The Universal Audio Apollo x16 Heritage Edition is the flagship converter in UA’s x Series. It connects easily to studio consoles, offering UA’s world-class A/D and D/A conversion. In addition to all the benefits of the x16 interface, the special Heritage Edition adds a diverse package of premium UAD plug-ins at an unprecedented value. The UA x16 is an 18x20 Thunderbolt 3 converter with wide dynamic range and low signal to noise ratio. It features 16x16 analog I/O to connect your console via DB-25 and has a +24 / +20 dBu switch to dial in the perfect headroom settings. With HEXA Core processing, the x16 extends the limits of your plug-in processing. It features a built-in talkback mic and 7.1 surround sound monitoring. It has the tone, feel and real-time workflow of classic analog gear and will boost your recording workflow.

Get Legendary UA Sound Natively With UAD Spark
Apollo Heritage Editions include plug-ins featured in UAD Spark, UA’s subscription plug-in collection that runs natively on Mac, with no UA hardware required. With UAD Spark, you can expand your plug-in processing power, balancing your DSP load between Apollo and your computer’s onboard processing.
