In the following video, Rob Rives demonstrates Universal Audio’s next-generation Apollo Thunderbolt 2 audio interfaces (Thunderbolt 2 lets you connect to the latest hi-res displays and doubles the bandwidth of the original Thunderbolt by offering 20 Gb/s of speed via two channels in both directions). This video showcases the three rackmount models, including the Apollo 8, Apollo 8p and the Apollo 16, as well as the desktop Apollo Twin. Topics covered include the physical input and outputs of each interface, the front-panel layout, and how the console software allows you to record with included UAD2 effects in real time. Rives also discusses the use of the Unison preamp technology, which is a preamp emulation that changes the impedance, gain staging, and circuit behavior of the preamp being modeled. Furthermore, Rives talks about the included UAD plug-ins, the new monitor section of the interfaces, and the updated A/D and D/A converters.

One of RME’s flagship products, the Babyface received an overhaul at this year’s NAB, and it’s clear that RME’s design team took quite a bit of feedback from users into consideration when updating the portable interface. The Babyface Pro, most notably, sees the breakout cable, that bane of portable interface users, eliminated altogether, with the XLR I/O being integrated right into the unit. Dual 1/4" inputs can act as either line or instrument level inputs, with ADAT or S/PDIF optical I/O for digital connectivity. Please check back for pricing and availability.
