    Are you ready for the next step..? Ready to get serious..?

    by . . 5 out of 5 stars

    Yes, there are MANY interfaces on the market. Yes, most of them do just fine for basic recordings. Are you ready to go beyond "basic"..? This unit is a fantastic upgrade. You know all the features because you have read all the specs. You have watched all the reviews and demos on YouTube. I did too. So, I saved my money and got one. It was the right call. If you want a better recording than this unit can give you don't buy more gear, go into a pro studio. But, if you are looking for pro results in your home studio, the Apollo Twin is a great center piece and a really good place to start. The only problem is that this piece of gear will show you how limited all your other gear is, so be ready to upgrade that stuff too, eventually.

    Best Studio Purchase I've Ever Made

    by M. Fudge. 5 out of 5 stars

    In all seriousness this is the best piece of studio gear I've ever purchased. Not because it's the best sounding (it's not), not because it's the most feature rich (it's not) and not because it's the most elitist piece of gear you could spend money on. It's because it simplifies the process of recording music with a computer to the point where it feels like a natural experience. Does hardware sound better than tracking through plugins? Probably. But that stuff is now collecting dust for me because the apollo sounds great (better is not always best) and makes working with artists and creating music/sound a much more enjoyable experience than it has ever been in the past.

    Great Audio Interface, But would be nice to have MIDI I/O & ADAT out option also

    by M. Luttrell. 4 out of 5 stars

    I love Universal Audio products they all are great quality, and the Apollo Twin is no different. It has great sound quality along side with the build quality is awesome and feels very solid. The ability to record with UAD Plugins in such a small package & use it for DSP processing while mixing is great, that separates this interface from any other interface thats close to its price range in such a small foot print. The only downside is, I think it should have included MIDI I/O and ADAT out along side the ADAT in. Other than that this is a great interface.

    UA Apollo Twin Review

    by J. Winthrop . 4 out of 5 stars

    It's been amazing with no problems. Amazing Sound quality, small, compact and sexy as hell.

    There's only one problem that I have with it. It's great being able to trail so many plug-ins and be given a few BUT... I use pro-tools and when I go to use plug-ins it'll come up with about another 10-15 plug-ins from UA whether I have bought it or not. This makes it difficult to actual find the plug-ins that UA has given me making me go through a bunch of them sometimes just to find mine.

    Is there some way I can just have the plug-ins I have and not like 20 other ones when I search for a plug-in?

    Thanks, James Winthrop :)

    My opinion about Apollo twin duo.

    by V. Attanasio . 5 out of 5 stars

    I am very happy and satisfied to have bought apollo twin duo.I've got to try this sound card a few months ago in a recording studio and I was very shocked by the quality of this product, the quality of the preamps at registration and the versatility of the mixer console.
    Regarding the plugins, I had no doubts about their quality because I am a deejay, musician, arranger and producer and i was already aware of the quality of the sound of the Universal Audio plugins : (the best in the world for me).
    I would like to say that I wanted to buy apollo duo but unfortunately I did not have all the economic availability but I am very happy to have the twin duo.

    Best regards: DjEnzo.

    Very useful, but missing some important features

    by J. Pesce . 4 out of 5 stars

    I have worked the last 20 years in high end commercial studios. Now because of the bad economy, especially in the music business, I've set up a project studio at home. The Apollo Twin duo gives great results. It's pre amps are quite nice. Even better if you use their plugin emulations that they offer, but unfortunately cost separately, and are quite expensive, like the Neve 1073. If I were to change anything, it would be to come with a thunderbolt cable included in the price, plus let the buyer choose the plugins that come standard with the Apollo. Some that come with it, I'm not very impressed with and will never use them. Why not let us custom choose six plugins that would come standard in the price of the Apollo?

    Best Gear Purchase I Have Made In a Long Time

    by J. Dean . 5 out of 5 stars

    The Apollo has really helped me get the clarity and detail in my home recording setup. Do yourself a favor and purchase the Apollo. It is easy to use and you can incorporate the UAD plugins as well. The Apollo has helped get me out of a creative slump I have been in for over 2 years. THANKS FOR A GREAT PRODUCT UA!!!!

    Uad Twin Duo

    by D. Eriksson . 4 out of 5 stars

    Can only agree with all the praises for Apollo Twin.
    Software and hardware is top notch.
    The only thing I would change is, as many have said, a way to
    organize all plugins in Apollo mixer.

    One way that maybe should work is to color code, eg, green = authorized, orange = Demo mode, red unauthorized.

    Then it would be good if they were cataloged like the online shop.
    Compressors, Limiters, Delay & Modulation, EQ, etc.


    Kind regards

    Dan

    GET THE DUO

    by M. Gonzalez . 5 out of 5 stars

    The Twin is amazing, and I'm glad I got it over the competing, similarly priced and spec'd interfaces from other manufacturers.

    UAD plugins are addicting, and the Twin is the gateway drug. I got the Duo and a handful of plugs and I'm regularly maxing it out with two verbs, one delay, and 10-12 comps & EQs. I'm already thinking about adding a Quad Satellite. Don't even bother with the Solo, once you try out UAD plugs you're gonna want more power!!

    Apollo twin is a win

    by . . 5 out of 5 stars

    The interface ties beautifully into logic x, the plugs sound great, the preamp is amazing for such a little box...

    BUT, super annoying is that u cannot turn of the "demo" plugs from the drop down list of plug ins...

    the twin comes with 5 or 6 plugs i believe...but the list is like 100 ... so it's super confusing to select the ones which are licensed...this is aggressive sales tactics, and puts a stain on the brilliant hardware.please release an update for this UA.

    then the product is unrivalled...i still gave the twin 5 stars as it sounds so excellent, adn is otherwise very intuitive to use.

    All in all it's a great product and i can only recommend it to anyone, professional or hobbyist alike...

    Far exceeded my expectations

    by M. Scherchen . 5 out of 5 stars

    Bought as a replacement for my Apogee Duet to use my old UAD plugins. The Apollo Twin totally exceeded my expectations. Perfect form factor for my desktop and the ability to insert UAD plugins live on my latency-free input is by FAR the biggest plus for this hardware. I can't overemphasise how cool this feature is. Beyond that - it's solidly constructed, sounds great, the console software is a breeze to use and the whole thing feels very luxury to me considering it's UADs entry level device. I've already recommended it to my colleagues and 3 have purchased Apollo Twins. One recommendation however - I'd try and stretch to the Duo. Only one gripe - an extra Thunderbolt part at the back so I can daisy chain. Faultless otherwise!

    Best bundle out there

    by H. Tarvenkorn . 5 out of 5 stars

    As a singer-songwriter/musician, aspiring home-recordist or a pro engineer travelling light you can't really wish for more. I have gone through various interfaces: Motu 828 MKII, Apogee Ensemble, Focusrite LS56 and Apogee Duet2. The quality of conversion and the clarity of monitoring has nowhere been as good as in my new Apollo Twin. The hardware is very well laid out and the console software very user-friendly. And then there are all the I/Os and the option to get more INs using an external preamp with digital out makes it very flexible. And then, of course, there are the plugins with a lot of mojo. And it is fantastic that you can print them on the way in. Preamps are nice but were a bit nicer in the Duet 2.

    Don\'t let the size fool you!

    by K. Hughes . 5 out of 5 stars

    Everything about this unit KICKS ASS!! The sound quality, build quality, & the thought & attention to detail that went into this product is astounding to me! The installation was simple on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro W/10.9 Mavericks. The ease of use and navigating is a pleasure & very easy to get around on. I ran a few tests on Logic and expected SOME kind of drop out on the "Spaceman demo song by the Killers" which consists of around 70 tracks and loads of plug-ins. I ran this thing @32buffer which reports 4.7ms of latency guess what I got PERFECT & clear playback NO Dropouts, NO Clicks, just sublime sound quality! The preamps sound Neutral but great & that's on purpose for the Unity plug-ins! I look forward to many great days with this!!!

    Love UAD

    by R. Jones . 5 out of 5 stars

    While I acknowledge the comments given in earlier reviews, I feel it non-constructive to review what you wanted a device to be rather than review the device in question.

    REAL TIME.

    I have owned and used UAD1s and 2s consistently over the last 10 years and have always been happy with the sound and hardware quality, and the excellent customer support provided (both one on one, and as a general user).

    The Apollo Twin has set the bar once again. Outstanding build quality, sound quality, flexibility and routing. Outstanding generosity - a free Helios plugin followed up by a $50 voucher. Not to mention the ability to take advantage of the classic bundle for $450. This device will more than pay for itself with the gear I can now sell online.

    It works... well!

    by R. Sherwood . 5 out of 5 stars

    I bought the Apogee Duo and had lots of ongoing problems with it. For some reason it didn't get along with my macbook very well and was always giving me problems.
    So happy that this came out and I was able to exchange the Duo for this. It's been perfect and sounds fantastic! I would definitely recommend it.

    Incredible interface...

    by M. Bratton . 5 out of 5 stars

    Rock Solid. Beautiful Design. Incredible Sound. Does everything I need and then some. I can record to my computer, and route audio out to my phone patch and ISDN box and send wet/dry mixes wherever I need, AND monitor in real-time. It's absolutely perfect for my voiceover business...and is easy to use to boot. Can't wait to get another one for my home studio!
