Product Description

Please note: Thunderbolt cable is sold separately. Please see the related items section for details.

The Apollo Twin Solo is a 2 channel Thunderbolt interface with professional grade pre amps and on-board digital pre-amp emulation through UAD's 'Realtime Analog Classics' plugin bundle which powerfully recreates the characteristics of some of the most celebrated console pre-amps of all time.

What's more although it looks like a pure two channel interface you can easily expand it to 10 channels (8 using the Optical input) to record a whole band using the Apollo Twin's pre-amp emulation plug ins! 

Duo or Solo?

The 'duo' and 'solo' tags refer to the number of built in DSP (Digital Signal Processing) cores. The Duo will be fine for most users mixing a small band for example but power users may want the extra processing headroom of the duo for bigger projects.

Here's what UAD say about the Apollo Twin

Apollo Twin. High-Resolution Desktop Music Production with Classic Analog Sound.

Apollo Twin reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac combines the same impeccable 24/192 kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD SOLO or DUO Processing. Plus it introduces new Unison technology, a breakthrough in classic mic preamp emulation. Record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins - from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, API and more* - putting racks of vintage EQs, compressors, mic preamps, tape machines, reverbs, and guitar amps at your fingertips.

A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin's Unison technology gives you the tone of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps - including their all-important impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and component-level circuit behaviors. Based on unprecedented hardware-software integration between Apollo's mic preamps and its onboard UAD plug-in processing, Unison lets you record through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, with more emulations coming soon.**

Apollo Twin's smart feature set includes two class-leading mic/line preamps, two analog line outputs, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs for full resolution at all listening levels, and up to eight additional channels of digital input via Optical connection. Onboard UAD SOLO or DUO Processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live and more.

With its ergonomic desktop design, rugged aluminum construction, and front panel headphone and instrument connections, Apollo Twin has all the right tools, all in the right place.
