Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII SOLO Thunderbolt Audio Interface
Improved Conversion, Enhanced Monitoring
How do you improve on the world's most popular professional desktop recording interface? Not one to shy away from such a task Universal Audio have been in the lab re-designing the Apollo Twin from the ground up, delivering enhanced conversion and monitoring functionality. The new 2x6 Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII SOLO Thunderbolt interface is the embodiment of UAD's pursuit of technical perfection.
Clarity, Accuracy, Depth
The old Apollo is definitely no slouch when it comes to conversion but the new model improves on the gold-standard quality you know and love. The improvements will give you ultra-low THD and increased dynamic range resulting in breath-taking clarity, pin-point accuracy and amazing depth in your recordings - as heard on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Brad Paisley and more.
A Rack Full Of The World's Finest Pres Without The Rack!
A breakthrough in emulation, Apollo Twin MkII's Unison Technology allows you to faithfully emulate the warmth and tone of the world's most legendary and sought after transformer and tube-based mic preamps - complete with their signature gain stage "sweet spots", impedance and component level circuit behaviours.
With unrivalled hardware-software integration, Unison Technology allows you to record at near-zero latency with a variety of options. Want to record through a preamp emulation of the UA 610-B Tube Preamp? Maybe you want to record your guitar through a Fender, Marshall or Ampeg bass amp model? UAD has you covered - you will get an unmatched, authentic analogue sound from the Apollo MkII and the Hi-Z input will give you dead-on impedance and gain matching of the aforementioned bass amp models!
Realtime Analog Classics
The Apollo's Realtime UAD Processing needs no introduction. With genuine analogue emulations from Neve, Manley, API, Struder, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, Marshall and more, the sound of the world's greatest hardware is at your fingertips. Available with a choice of UAD-2 SOLO, DUO or QUAD Core processing power, Apollo Twin lets you record through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins - at near-zero latency, greatly offloading required processing power from you CPU.
Included with the Apollo Twin MkII is the "Realtime Analog Classics" suite of UAD powered plugins featuring the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and more. Right out of the box you have a rack full of bonafide studio classics.
Need More DSP Horsepower?
In addition to the popular UAD-2 SOLO and DUO Core models, Apollo Twin MkII is available in an ultra-powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core model, allowing more plug-in horsepower for running the most complex and convincing analog emulations on the market.
All New Built-In Talkback Mic
Apollo Twin MkII offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin - with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII's scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.
Combine And Expand
Users of Apollo Twin MkII can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices - adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo 8, 8p, or 16 rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.
