With its class-leading resolution and Realtime UAD Processing, Apollo Twin USB sets a new standard for desktop music production.

This 2x6 USB 3 interface for Windows allows you to record with near-zero latency through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — ingeniously merging classic analog tones with cutting-edge features.

Record with world-class Apollo A/D and D/A conversion — as heard on hundreds of hit records

Use alongside UAD-2 PCIe DSP Accelerator cards, UAD-2 Satellite FireWire, and UAD-2 Satellite USB for truly scalable mixing power

Mix with UAD plug-ins like the included Teletronix® LA-2A and 1176 compressors, Pultec® EQs, and 610-B Preamp

Track with near-zero latency through preamp emulations from Neve®, API®, Manley® and more using Unison technology

Unison Technology: The Genuine Sound of Neve, API & Manley Preamps

Apollo Twin features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, and Universal Audio. An Apollo exclusive, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware.

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input, and tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

A Full Suite of Classic<br>Analog Processing Onboard

A Full Suite of Classic
Analog Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, Apollo Twin USB provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the Unison-enabled UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classic plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.

From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

Access the World of UAD Powered Plug-Ins

Beyond the included Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins, Apollo Twin USB lets you tap into the full library award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins — including vintage EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Tape Machines 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 Neve, Studer, Manley, API, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, and more, it’s like having an endless analog studio, right on your desktop. And unlike competing interfaces, these DSP-powered plug-ins are also available in your DAW for mixing.

Next-Generation A/D and D/A Conversion

Next-Generation A/D and D/A Conversion

Of course, the heart of any audio interface is the quality of its conversion. In designing the next-generation Apollo range, UA engineers started with an obsessive auditioning of the latest A/D and D/A converters, ultimately pairing the selected 24-bit/192kHz converters with all-new analog circuitry for the optimal signal path. Apollo Twin provides increased dynamic range and lower THD versus other interfaces — rivaling dedicated converters costing thousands more.

Apollo: The Choice of New-School Professionals

Apollo is the confirmed choice of hit-making professionals, used to record records by Kendrick Lamar (To Pimp A Butterfly), Coldplay (A Head Full of Dreams), Dr. Dre (Compton), Brad Paisley (Wheelhouse), and many more. The Apollo range of interfaces has earned numerous industry awards from Sound on Sound, Future Music and Electronic Musician — as well as the prestigious 2016 TEC Award for computer audio hardware.

Now with Vintage Amps

Now with Vintage Amps

finaly that`s what i was looking for!

Apollo Twin USB is the small thing that has a huge power. The great and powerful thing that gives a lot of possibilities in my small home studio. Console and plugins works and sounds really impressive. Excellent integration with Cubase 8. Finaly that`s what i was looking for!

Apollo Twin USB

First let me say, I was rather skeptical when UA first announced the Twin USB for Windows. Having used the Mac Apollo TB version on my Mac Mini, I was not sure UA could replicate that same stability, workflow and performance using USB on Windows. I am happy to say I was wrong. Having now used both devices (on Mac & Win), if I did not know the actual connection (USB or TB), I would think they are one and the same. Kudos to UA for mirroring the same experience between platforms.
UA has packed a lot of features into a small form factor. It is solidly built and ergonomic to use. It has stellar audio specs and I/O options, but what sets it apart from all of the other audio interfaces on the market is the realtime UAD processing, Unison Preamp technology and the generous included UAD plug-in bundle to get you started. The UAD plug-ins can be used from the Apollo 2.0 Console for realtime processing and/or from your favorite DAW application as VST, RTAS or AAX 64 plug-ins.
The install/firmware upgrade and registration was seamless and I was up in running on my finely tuned Win 10 Pro x64 DAW in no time. My (2) existing UAD-2 PCIe cards were seamlessly combined with the Apollo to create a complete DSP ecosystem (7 total DSP's). I have been using both SONAR Platinum x64 and REAPER 5 x64 for the past two weeks without any issues. Overall, I am very satisfied with my new Apollo Twin USB and it is truly deserving of 5 stars!

Even better than expected!

I knew UAD as a name for people working on Mac's, so was excited when the USB version was announced for PC. I could not be happier with the results so far. Set up was fast and easy and there have been no problems interfacing with my windows 10 system running protools 11 and integrating with my other music hardware (keyboards, amps, rack-processors, etc...). I am just now scratching the surface exploring the plugin options. In particular, the Marshall and ENGL guitar amp simulators have me ecstatic. I am looking into diving deeper into more of the mixing and mastering plugs. Some plugins tend to use up the onboard processors quickly, so I am still learning how to pick and choose wisely. Overall Excellent!

AMAZING

This little thing is awesome!!! Ok I bought it to replace my oldschool RME Multiface. I have my Multiface lightpiped to the Apollo for 8 additional inputs. Everything works great the mic inputs are great. When I used the Console 2.0 with Pro Tools I was like holy BLEEP!!! The latency is amazing and the sound is even more amazing. One thing that disappoints me is that it's not backwards compatible with Mac which makes absolutely no sense. My mac is USB3 and Thunderbolt.... I still gave it 5 stars because when I bought it it said Windows. I have a quad and a single in my DAW PC so this Apollo hit the spot I highly recommend it.

Amazing worth the wait!

It finally arrived The Apollo Twin a sleek design that packs a lot of power with the addiction of the plugins. Wow the plug ins to get you started are amazing. I must say the quality of my vocals recording has improve with unison technology. UA even threw in a coupon for The Helios 69 a $199.99 value. If you just getting started or a seasoned pro The Apollo Twin is worth every penny. UA Rocks!
