Very Happy

Just upgraded from a Focusrite Sapphire Pro and couldn't be happier. I'm especially smitten with the ability to track through the plug ins and the functionality of the Console software. I have a UA 4-710d that I use along with this and the PreAmps on the Apollo sound just as fantastic. Thanks UA!!

What was promised!

Exactly what I was expecting from this... it sounds amazing and it brings tons of new posibilites when recording vocals (which is my main job at my studio! The software is not ver intuitive at first (specially when controlling outputs, or monitoring)... but with a little research and guide from the tutorials online it gets way easier as the days go by... a little bit of a learning curve on that side... but nothing that someone that has a general idea of what he´s/she´s doing can´t tackle, and once you get the hang of it, it actually offers a lot. Worth every penny... this is hardware that wont be needing any upgrades for a few years...

Exactly what you'd expect from a legend

A very welcome addition to the collection, the Apollo 8 pres are everything you hear. Very transparent, plenty of headroom and I cant stop playing with the Neve emulations (88RS and 1073). Truly astounding sonic performance. Downsides are the plugin manager (really people, please figure out a way to display only purchased plugins...) and the way DSP resources are allocated, but technical limitations are what drive innovation.

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

The Best!

I am astonished at how good this unit is! Unison is outstanding...I will be purchasing more UA products...WOW!

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).
