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

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

Apollo Twin features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, SSL, 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 in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface's impedance — so you can tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

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 landmark albums by Kendrick Lamar (DAMN.), Chris Stapleton (From A Room: Volume 1), Arcade Fire (Everything Now), Post Malone (Beerbongs & Bentleys), 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 TEC Award for computer audio hardware five years running.

Now with Vintage Amps

Now with Vintage Amps

New for Apollo Twin USB is Unison technology on the front panel instrument input, giving you dead-on, impedance-matched emulations of guitar and bass amps like the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe, Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959, and the Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier.

Awesome hardware with awesome plugins

Got this with autotune bundle and I'm absolutely blown away by the quality of the hardware and software. The plugins are insanely good. I didn't believe people that they could replace actual hardware but the preamp plugins can. Amazing!

아폴로트윈 usb리뷰

나는 rme fireface800 유저였습니다. 마이크 프리엠프는 avalin vt737sp를 사용했구요
마이크는 u87ai를 사용했습니다. 작업실을 이동하면서 새로운 장비를 알아보다가 아폴로와
unison preamp 시스템을 알게되었고 궁금했습니다. 과연 소리가 어떨지....아폴로의 유니즌 프리의 성능은 생각보다 훨씬 좋았습니다.

It really makes a difference - probably much more than you initially think

I have used many audio interfaces ranging from budget to professional levels. The feature that makes Apollo Twin USB a real game changer are the realtime monitoring capabilities without the use of external gear: want to provide a mix ready monitoring "zero-latency" signal for vocals with compressor, EQ and reverb while at the same time recording a dry signal to the DAW? No problem. Want to hear your guitar with cabinet simulation and be inspired by real time echo and modulation? No problem at all. Using a vocoder with your midi keyboard and hear the results without delayed voices in your head? That's where the Apollo really shines. This kind of workflow makes it highly inspiring - whether you use the effects just for monitoring or print them on the track while recording or later - it's all your choice. Preset management (e.g. for certain singers, mics or guitars) and the option to sync the settings with your DAW with the console recall plugin and saving it with your session really shows that the product has been designed with the musician in mind. Although not officially endorsed by UA, the Apollo Twin USB works flawlessly with my ASUS AMD Ryzen laptop. Don't be scared by conflicting information from the Internet in regards do compability, do as I did: Given that you can return it to the dealer in the case that it doesn't work for you or you don't like it - give it a try and thank me later! :)

Doesn't connect.

Tried connecting Apollo twin Thunderbolt to Mac OS 12.4. Doesn't connect. Doesn't detect interface. Allowing privacy settings makes no difference. Waste of money so far. Helpline is swamped, so I must not be the only one having problems.

Flawless operation

Super happy with my Apollo. Tip for AMD users: AMD's messy USB implementation can cause stutters, this is easily fixable by just getting a cheap usb 3 HUB and connecting the Apollo through that.

Professional sound quality

The audio quality of this wonderful machine is fantastic.
I use an old microphone for live,
Shure beta 87/A , and the result was incredible.
I don't even imagine what can be done with a professional studio microphone.
For small recording studios that don't have big budgets, you can't ask for anything better. Quality/Price, superb!
