Work Flow Went From 0-100

I have an at home studio but I tend to use several analogue and digital elements and the Apollo Twin meshes those two aspects of my studio seamlessly. Not only that but being able to record straight in to the DAW with crisp vocals to start a basis with is a great help when engineering/producing/mixing/ or mastering for myself or other artist.

upgraded converters

Everything about this is great, i upgraded my mac computer and the connectivity was second to none, that and the updated converters makes my unit that seamless! If theres one thing about UAD is that they are solid. Never a fail moment with sessions

Game changer!

I’ve had a studio for years, when I’m in there I create. Now I can create anywhere. Weather tracking or mixing, this box is outstanding.

Next level music production just laying casually on your desk

This thing rocks! It completely wipes out every audio interface I've had before. With bundled plugins you have complete toolset to create fantastic sounding music. Simple, easy to use, looks great, sounds amazing - well worth the price!

Best purchase I’ve made in years!!

The unison preamps are amazing! Can truly hear the difference in every preamp you use the moment you touch the gain knob! And the ability to use additional plugins in realtime and print them increases the quality of the recording 10x making mixing a breeze because the recording is so great!

L'une des meilleure carte grand public

J'utilise l'ancienne version de la Twin depuis 2017 et cette nouvelle variante version X est tout aussi qualitative sans changer le concept. Bravo encore UA !

Completely Unacceptable

I have tried everything I have found on the piece of Sh!t Apollo Twin X at least 20 Times. It does not register, It does not work with Mac Mini M2 and OS Ventura. I got the Satellite to load and register but the Apollo Twin X is a complete Bust. No technical support from UA. This use to be the Industry Standard. Now it's complete SH!T!

FCP problems with PlugIns

When starting Final Cut Pro 10.6.10, it checks the audio-plugins. The following Plug-Ins where inkompatible:
UAD API 550A, UAD Cambridge, UAD Empirical Labs FATSO Sr, UAD Manley VOXBOX, UAD Neve 31102, UAD Precision De-Esser, UAD Precision Equalizer, UAD Precision K-Stereo, UAD UA 1176 Rev A
Why didn't UAudio solve the problems??? :-(((

Support a revoir

J ai acheté une twin x duo usb, pour information, je suis sur windows 11 avec un bon pc core i9. L installation se passe bien mais impossible en fin d installation de s enregistrer sur le site avec comme conséquence de ne pas pourvoir utiliser les plugin HE et autre qui sont offerts en ce moment. Les plug in de base sont utilisables mais reste limité en nombre. Je contacte rapidement le support en leur précisant toutes les installations effectuées. Au bout de plus d une semaine, j ai eu 2 réponses qui m ont donné l impression qu il voulait gagner du temps et au final rien n' a avancé. J attends quelques jours et je retournerai la carte pour me faire rembourser (mon revendeur m a proposé de la changer mais le pb est logiciel et pas hardware .
