Apollo Twin X (Mac and Windows)
Universal Audio’s Apollo Twin X is a brilliant space-saving interface, which enables musicians and producers to easily track, overdub and mix larger projects.
This unit features elite-class A/D and D/A conversion with two Unison-enabled preamps, and available DUO or QUAD Core realtime UAD plug-in processing. All of this is wrapped up in a sleek desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio interface, which is compatible with both Mac and Windows.
Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of craftsmanship, Apollo Twin X outperforms everything in its class. With 127 dB D/A dynamic range and an included bundle of UAD analog emulation plug-ins, this unit gives you a fully-stocked analog studio, right on your desktop.
Record and mix with elite-class A/D and D/A conversion. This enables the widest dynamic range and lowest noise of any desktop interface.
Apollo Twin X features two Unison-enabled preamps, so you can track with near-zero latency through preamp emulations from Helios, Neve, API, Manley, and more*.
Universal Audio’s onboard UAD processing lets you track and mix in realtime with included Teletronix LA‑2A and 1176 compressors, Pultec EQs, 610‑B Tube Preamp and more.
If you need to expand your system, you can cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD-2 devices over Thunderbolt. This way you can easily add DSP and I/O as your studio grows.
Two Unison Preamps
The two Unison-enabled mic preamps means you can track through mic preamp emulations from Neve, Helios, API, Manley, Universal Audio and many more. Exclusive to UA Audio Interfaces, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres. By including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviours of the original hardware, you can get the Genuine Sound you are searching for.
The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD DUO or QUAD Core DSP Acceleration. You can simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface’s impedance. This way so you can tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.
Elite-Class A/D and D/A Conversion
With thousands of hit songs and hundreds of Grammy-winning albums under their belt, Apollo interfaces are used to track exceptional-sounding records every day. UA engineers redesigned the Twin’s audio conversion to deliver a striking 127 dB dynamic range and -117 dB THD+N, giving Apollo Twin X a spacious, organic sound that easily rivals dedicated high-end converters.
