Universal Audio - 'Apollo x16'
50% more processing power than previous Apollos
Universal Audio’s flagship ‘Apollo x16’ enables music producers, project and post-production studios to track, overdub, and mix with new, unparalleled A/D and D/A conversion, HEXA Core UAD plug-in processing, Dual-Crystal clocking and 7.1 surround sound monitoring – all wrapped in an elegant rackmountable Thunderbolt 3 audio interface compatible with Mac or PC.
Utilising UA’s 60-years of heritage and know-how of audio craftsmanship, this 18x20 interface sports the broadest dynamic range (133 dB) and lowest THD+N (-129 dB), of any integrated audio interface available today. Furthermore, with brand-new HEXA Core processing, you’ll enjoy 50% more DSP for powering the celebrated UAD Powered Plug-Ins in real time.
Make the UA Apollo x16 the centrepiece of your studio and you’ll see your productivity sky-rocket! Track and mix with a staggering 50% more processing power than any previous Apollo, thanks to UA’s powerful 6-core HEXA Core processor. Enjoy top-shelf sound quality, via Apollo x16’s redesigned elite-tier AD/DA conversion and Dual Crystal clocking. Professional users will bask in native 7.1 surround monitoring support, selectable +24dBu operation, integrated talk-back and more. Beyond this, you’ll enjoy sub-2ms latency and an abundance of expandability thanks to Apollo x16’s super-fast Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
UA’s Flagship A/D and D/A Conversion Unit
All new Dual-Crystal clockingUA’s Apollo range is responsible for 1000’s upon 1000’s of chart-topping songs and 100’s of Grammy-winning albums. In a bid to improve upon the previous range of Apollo interface’s class-leading audio conversion, UA’s team had obsessively auditioned the very latest A/D and D/A converters – ultimately pairing elite-class 24-bit/192 kHz converters with brand-new analogue circuitry for a staggeringly pristine signal path.
The Apollo X series also sees the introduction of Dual-Crystal clocking, boasting dedicated crystals for 44.1/88.2/176.4k and 48/196/192k sample rates, which results in breathtakingly low jitter, clocked at an unbelievable -10 picoseconds. This manifests itseld into pure, artifact-free recordings and solid stereo imaging you can trust.
With 133dB dynamic range and THD+N of -129dB, the Apollo x16’s wide, organic sound quality beats every interface in its peer group, regardless of price, and it’s the optimum starting point for applying UAD processing.
Realtime UAD HEXA Core Processing
6 DSP chipsApollo x16 sports brand-new HEXA Core processing with 6 DSP chips and 50% more UAD plug-in processing power than any prior Apollo. This allows you to run more UAD plug-ins, whether you’re tracking in real time with channel strips from Neve, Manley, or API, or running high UAD plug-in counts when mixing in your DAW.
From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the subtle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, or the pump of an authentic Fairchild 670 compressor on drums, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analogue sound
Classic Analogue Processing Onboard
Realtime UAD ProcessingOf course, a hallmark feature of Apollo is its Realtime UAD Processing, letting you run the full library of UAD plug-ins with near-zero latency. Apollo x16 includes the Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, so you can record and mix with the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs, and many more.
Access the World of UAD Powered Plug-Ins
an extensive library of world-class plug-insGoing beyond the included Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-ins, Apollo x16 lets you tap into the full UAD Powered Plug-In library of legendary vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines, channel strips, and more — at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software’s buffer size and without taxing your computer’s CPU.
With exclusive emulations from SSL, Neve, Studer, Manley, Helios, API, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, and more, it truly is just like having a studio full of classic analogue gear, in a single rack space. And unlike competing interfaces, these award-winning DSP-powered plug-ins are also available in your DAW for mixing.
Surround Sound, Talkback, and More
7.1 surround monitoring supportThe Apollo x16 features built-in front-panel monitoring functions including a Talkback mic, Alt Speakers, and assignable Dim or Mono control. Plus, with its comprehensive 7.1 surround monitoring support, Apollo x16 is fantastic for engineers and producers working on audio and music for video games, television, and the web.
In addition, Apollo x16 offers selectable +24 dBu operation for out-of-the-box compatibility with professional mixing consoles and other high-end pro audio equipment.
Build an Expanded Studio System
via thunderboltApollo x16 offers 18 x 20 simultaneous inputs/outputs (16 x 16 analogue I/O) and two built-in Thunderbolt 3 ports. This allows users of any Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin or Apollo rackmount audio interfaces to easily combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding fast, high-bandwidth I/O and DSP as your studio grows.
