Absolutely fantastic ... I’m almost close to tears... before I was struggling to get my sound quality up to a place sonically to where mow the apollo starts from !!!
This is a complete game changer and there is nothing I can’t do ; ( other than my own limitations )
I bought the deal with the ten Plugins and I have to say I need nothing else ... thankyou UNIVERSAL AUDIO....... I’m going to hopefully be a long time customer !

All new world of music

I have no words to describe Apollo8 and UAD plug in. I am totally amazed of the crystal clear sound and fascinated with the preamps. No doubt its an incredible product. Thanks to team UAD

Almost done!

Sounds fantastic but it should have more ins/outs...
In Addition to that the Console could be more intuitive and practical!

Stepping up to the plate! UA hits another home run!

My Apollo 8 quad is the crown jewel of my home studio. I started just 2 years ago, very slowly, and gradually building my sonic arsenal, plenty of nice analog gear and coveted mics, but this was the missing link in my studio. The onboard, pres', in conjunction with the unison enabled emulation pre's are just incredible. I'm glad I have options outside the box, but quite honestly you could completely get away without them. I'm addicted to the UA plugins too, and now totally get what I've been hearing all along...they're unreal! Thanks Universal Audio for helping me get in the game. I love my Apollo 8 Quad, and can't wait to get the free UAD-2 satellite quad that came with if as a promo deal, counting the days to its arrival.

Apollo 8 The Great!

I love my Apollo 8. It sounds wonderful. It has tons of power. Its dependable. Its world class. One of the best purchases I have ever made for my home studio. If Universal Audio makes it then it is worth it. They do a great job with their products and I trust UA 1000%.

Incredible Interface

I have had the unit for a couple weeks and all I can say is...WOW!!! I have owned a few other interfaces and equipment with interfaces and honestly thought some sounded great...that was until I used the Apollo changer. The setup was quick and easy. The only complaint I have is that I wish there was independent control or the virtual inputs gain.

such a surprise

I already had the Apollo 16 and just wanted to expand my outputs to give me more options on my console. In a rather hurried session, I opted to use the preamps on this. WOW! I absolutely love the tone from these when using the unison tech (API Vision pre). Next purchase, the 8P version.

Best decision I have made for a long time! I bought Apollo 8!

What a fantastic piece of equipment. Good and stable software integration of UADs console in DAW. It just works as it should. it's one of the best investment in music-hardware and I'm very satisfied to work with the Apollo!

Great product, wish there was more "getting started" info.

I love the apollo and am impressed with its power & quality, but I am quite frustrated with the lack of thorough getting-started content, especially videos. With a product like this, I would expect to find ample content about changing settings, best practices, etc. However, I'm stuck digging through forums trying to figure out basic controls.

Partnered with the Apollo Twin makes this a great system for mobile tracking and mixing. The preamps are clean and the vintage emulations are spot on. I'm never looking back.

I have been working with my apollo twin for years. I just wanted to update the channels and the dsp level so i ve bought a apollo 8. I ve been using apollo 8 for a month, i love it. The uad plug-ins are killing me. Thanks.

Best solution currently available for small studios

The mk2 Apollo makes a noticeable improvement on converter quality. This was the one dealbreaking feature that kept me from jumping on board with the original silver face units. The new Unison plugins are very DSP intensive, so I do wish UAD made the quad core standard instead of the duo and an octo available as the flagship model. Or better yet, please find a way to use my thunderbolt octo satellite to add to my available Unison DSP resources (I know there are technical hurdles but it would be an unbelievable update if possible).

Ease of setup.

From the unpackaging the unit to set up. It is seamless. If you follow the clear instructions, it is a very simple. You do not need to be a computer programmer to make music with this system.
I was impressed by the fact that the interface links with my DAW so nicely. I was trying to figure out how to change the resolution and was pleasantly surprised that the unit reads the settings of the DAW automatically. The most impressive thing is the quality of the emulations. I am a hands on guy, so the actual face of the original gear makes it very simple to make changes. Anyone who knows professional gear will smile at the listing of gear names.... Neve, Pultec, Manley, Solid State, and of course the studio staple gracing pro studios everywhere, Universal Audio equipment. Even if you don't consider yourself a "pro", you will be well on your way with this system. It will make you reach for your best since you now have the tools of the professionals.

Awsome Quad-Core DSP Interface

The Apollo 8 Quad is my first UA Device and i am satisfied. Very fast and self-descriptive setup. You sit in front of a running system within 20 minutes and you are ready to run through your DAW or in realtime with the console. The hardware makes a very stable and solid impression. For me, it's one of the best investment in music-hardware and i'am very lucky with the apollo!

I LOVE Universial Audio..

Just received my Apollo 8. I added it to my Apollo twin Duo and satellite, now I can rest well. The work flow with this gear now is as smooth as silk. It records beautifully and easy to make things happen!! Thanks UA you're the best, and I'm not just saying it I mean it!!!!

Feels Like Analogue!

I made the switch from the Apogee Ensemble and it was probably the best gear decision I've ever made! The unison technology is absolutely incredible and the plugins feel like the real units! I wish they made an Octo version but I love it!
