By emulating the entire signal path, including tube amplifiers, transformers, and circuit nonlinearities, the 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in injects organic detail and saturation to any signal — whether you’re re-amping or tracking through the 610-B via Universal Audio’s Unison™ technology.
Marshall® Plexi Classic Amplifier
The undisputed alpha dog of rock and roll guitar amps, the Marshall “plexi” amplifier is as legendary as the music it helped create. From Jimi Hendrix to Jimmy Page, Duane Allman to Eric Clapton, the Plexi’s punishing melange of snarl, sustain, smoothness, and raunch defined the sound of rock. Developed by Softube, the Marshall Plexi Classic Amp plug-in gives you the sound of this iconic amp with a perfectly placed microphone from engineer Tony Platt who recorded AC/DC’s Back in Black and Highway to Hell.
Teletronix® LA-2A Classic Leveling Amplifier (Legacy)
With its gentle, program dependent optical compression and meticulously designed tube amplifier, the LA-2A is the go-to compressor for professional mixers around the world — especially for vocals.

Get classic, ultra-fast FET compression from the world’s most recognized compressor. The 1176 will impart punch, presence, and character as well as its signature distortion overtones on drums, vocals, guitars, and bass. The 1176LN has graced countless recordings, from Led Zeppelin, to the White Stripes and Michael Jackson.
Pultec® Pro Equalizers (Legacy)
Mix with two of the most sought-after hardware EQs ever made — the MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the EQP-1A Program Equalizer. Both of these tube-based icons deliver smooth and silky EQ curves with an abundance of warm analog character.
Ampeg® SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp
Introduced in 1969, the Ampeg SVT bass amp is still the reigning king of high-powered tube bass tone. Developed by Brainworx, the Ampeg SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp plug-in perfectly captures the raw power and punch that has made this the go-to amp for rock, funk, and soul players. Track in real time using Unison™ preamp technology for the tone, touch, and feel of a real SVT bass amp, or transform bland DI tracks with the thunderous roar of a stone cold classic.
Precision Mix Rack Collection
Featuring the Precision Channel Strip, Precision Reflection Engine, and Precision Delay Modulation plug-ins, the Precision Mix Rack Collection offers four modern, high-fidelity plug-ins for recording and mixing. Powerful and intuitive, Precision Mix Rack Collection gives you an impressive tool set — perfect for beginners and seasoned professionals alike.
Modeled from a vintage early-’80s Pro Co Rat, Raw Distortion delivers all the gritty dynamic raunch of the legendary stompbox. And with Unison™ technology, you can plug in to Apollo Twin, 8, or 8p’s front-panel Hi-Z instrument jack and experience the same circuit interaction, gain range, and clip points for the true tone, feel, and response of the original hardware.
RealVerb Pro is a flexible, natural sounding reverb based on UA’s own unique set of algorithms. Allowing you to design the room just as you hear it, the RealVerb Pro goes beyond simply big/small or dark/bright, giving your sources distortion-free, smoothing diffusion control and ultra-long reverb tail.

Great little introduction interface
Bought to replace an aging interface and this has done an amazing job. The sound quality of the DACs/ADCs is incredible, the build quality is bar none, the hardware interface is intuitive and well thought out and it's just generally a really neat little package. Looks great on my desk.
I really love the concept of the unison preamps and plugging into a Fender amp feels like nothing I've ever quite experienced when plugging directly into an interface. And that's not to mention the wealth of other preamps at your disposal.
My only disappointment, which is on me, I should have researched more, is that I was immediately surprised by how far one core would go. Especially when using the more CPU intensive plug ins, like that Fender amp, which pushes it almost to capacity and leaves me with few other options in the chain. I mean, I couldn't have afforded the twin anyway, but I would definitely say if you're worried about that kinda thing, to look into what you'll be wanting to use first and their core utilisation.
Otherwise an incredible product, which I'm certain will not be my last.

Good sound, but working bad on my licensed windows
Had some issues on windows, knobs in console isn’t smooth.
No input signal from microphone in obs programm.
And for these money I want plug and go don’t wanna contact support and wait for answers couple days.
Yes sound good and dsp cpu I like it but first of all for work I want stability, so I decided return Apollo after week back to the shop. It’s sad cause I really fall in love with design and sound but I don’t have enough time and nerves for this problem solvings I’m just customer with 500$ And want for them be calm when I’m creating, maybe only my interface was broken
my best interface!
It works stably and everything is very convenient!
Great little interface
Solid on Win 10 USB. Sounds very good. Console and plugins are a lot of fun to experiment with. Ability to save settings and recall in DAW is awesome! Great interface if you only need up to 2 channels at a time.
다좋다 그러나 기기 발열은 심각해서 사용하기 불편해서 거의 사용하지않는다 발열문제는 진짜심각하다
RESILIENT BY DESIGN
I've been coveting the UAD platform for a while but couldn't afford to hop in. Thanks to Universal Audio engineering for such a compact 'military grade' device. I can't believe the quality of vocals when tracked using Unison. I used the 1073 and it's mindblowing, I've never experienced such mid-low beauty, what a mellow yet prestine take. Though I mixed using Studio One stock plugins, the difference is amazing! Call me old-fashioned, but next I'm getting the Apollo X4 and the Ultimate 11.
Apollo Solo USB
I have an Apollo Duo for my home studio setup but purchased the Apollo Solo for the purpose of remote recording with a laptop. It's great being able to utilize the unison plugins for this purpose.
wonderful interface with wide range of features
Great quality sound, need me the twin one now !

Amazing But Needs Windows Performance Improvement
The Apollo Solo USB Heritage Edition I purchased has been the best upgrade to my home studio since I upgraded my mic. This audio interface is hands down amazing, just would be nice too not have any latency issues on windows. The plug-ins that came with it are hands down incredible, they make my old waves versions look like a joke. Overall an amazing product, just slight performance issues on windows.
The reason why I tried to give you 4 stars but took one out is because of compatibility with Windows. I don't know if my computer is a problem, but I think it's not enough to get along with many computers. Please pay attention.
