Apollos

The First Recording Platform with Deep Apollo Integration

LUNA gives Apollo owners the fastest recording environment for music production, editing, and mixing. In addition to its seamless hardware‑software integration with Thunderbolt‑equipped* Apollo interfaces, LUNA Recording System allows capturing audio through DSP‑powered UAD plug‑ins with no discernible latency, as well as offering new Accelerated Realtime MonitoringTM — which provides analog‑style tracking and overdubbing workflows using Apollo’s onboard DSP acceleration.

Unlock Analog Sounds and Workflows

Far beyond plug‑ins, LUNA Extensions are built into the fabric of LUNA's mixer, giving you authentic analog sounds without having to manage multiple plug‑in windows.

Neve Summing

Built-In Neve & API Summing

Create with precisely emulated analog summing from legendary Neve and API consoles. These optional LUNA Extensions will transform a clean, sterile mix to sound as if it was mixed on a classic analog desk.
