The Apollo Twin USB Desktop Interface with Realtime UAD Processing from Universal Audio is a USB 3.0 audio interface capable of capturing your audio in up to 24-bit/192 kHz with realtime, low-latency UAD plug-in processing. It features Universal Audio's Unison technology, which, in conjunction with their UAD plug-ins, is capable of emulating a range of tube and solid-state microphone preamps, including their impedance and gain-stage sweet spots.
The Apollo Twin USB includes the Realtime Analog Classics UAD plug-in bundle, featuring legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, the 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, plus Softube Amp Room Essentials, and the 610-B Tube Preamp.
Record and Mix with 24-bit/192 kHz Sound Quality
The Apollo Twin gives you 24-bit/192 kHz sound and clarity. Its mic preamps, input stage, and audio conversion are identical to the Apollo series, translating into recordings with depth and punch. Digitally controlled analog monitor outputs provide full resolution audio (without digital scaling) at all listening levels - letting you create better mixes in real-world environments
A Complete Analog Studio with Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing
Imagine having access to a classic analog recording studio, right on your desktop. Apollo Twin lets you record and mix through the full range of UAD Powered plug-ins - including vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines and more - at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer size. With UAD plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Moog, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more, Apollo Twin can provide analog tone and warmth. The key is its onboard UAD-2 DUO DSP Processing, which powers the UAD plug-ins while reducing the strain on your host CPU. Apollo Twin includes the "Realtime Analog Classics" plug-in bundle, featuring a choice selection of vintage compressors, EQs and reverb, plus guitar amps and tube mic preamp emulation. From there, you can choose from a vast and expanding collection of plug-ins in the UA Online Store
Track Through Classic Mic Preamps Using Unison Technology
Unison technology allows Apollo Twin's mic preamps to sound and behave like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps - including their all-important impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and circuit behaviors. Based on integration between Apollo's digitally controlled analog mic preamps and its onboard UAD processing, Unison lets you track through colorful preamp emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in
Apollo Twin is a 2-in/6-out interface with two mic/line preamps, two analog line outputs, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs, and up to eight additional channels of digital inputs via Optical connection. Its conveniently located Hi-Z instrument input and headphone jack allow you to capture inspiration the moment it strikes
Console Application and Console Recall Plug-In
The Console application is Apollo Twin's software control interface. Its analog console-style design provides "realtime" tracking and monitoring with UAD Powered Plug-Ins - a feature not found in any other interface. Complete Apollo Twin Console setups can be saved as presets, or even saved within your sessions using the Console Recall plug-in. This enables hardware recall of all Apollo Twin settings, even months and years after you last opened your session
