Amazing product! Apollo 8 blows HD Omni out of the water!

This is truly a great unit. It's powerful, sounds great, flexible and contains all the connections you would want. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to put together a home to pro studio.

Best Interface I've Ever Owned!

Without naming any other brands, I've coming to the realization that I've been cheating myself for years. The quality of Universal Audio's Apollo 8 is undeniable and probably the smartest musical decision I've made in my entire life.

Great Audio Interface!

I upgraded from the Apollo Twin because they offered free satellite with the purchase of the the Apollo 8 by 31 Dec 2015....SWEET DEAL! Ok back to the review...Its the best interface I ever owned the sound of my recording are so clear!!!!!! The clarity is ridiculously GOOD! The plugins are outstanding but are a little pricey IMO...I guess you have to pay to play. The quality is amazing!

das beste Interface, dass ich je hatte

Weil man fast alle Plug Ins Latenz-frei auf die Eingangssignale legen kann, ist es für mich so genial. Jetzt habe ich die tollsten Channel Strips und Röhrenkompressoren für mein Mikro, die ich mir in echt niemals hätte leisten können. Ein klarer Vorteil, der den Preis mehr als rechtfertigt.

Good sound!

I bought the first time a product of Universal Audio.I think Unison technology is easy to use without any latency.Preamp of Apollo is very clean and there is no extra coloring.You may use the Unison technology if you want a special sound.My favorite plug-in is a Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ and UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ.

Great piece!

I'm happy to become an UAD family member - I simply love my new Apollo. Really nice piece...
The only reason for 4 stars is, that there are not much functions in console useful for surround applications. An option for surround 5.1 (7.1) monitoring systems must be just a simple stuff for you, UAD engineers, no? :)

Best Interface Ever!

I have been using an Avid HD Native Thunderbolt Onmi and this unit is 100 times better in every-way. The converters sound better, the drivers are better, and the workflow is much better. I must say tracking with the best plugins in the world is pretty nice. I also find it to be much more stable with Pro Tool 12 than my Avid hardware. I like the fact that Universal audio keeps the drivers up to date regularly. What a great company! I would also like to mention that there is nothing better in this price point. I would highly recommend this unit! Thanks UA!

Best sound I've ever had

For me it was an "cheep" and much better solution... for silent rehearsal and recording.
The Apollo 8 outputs are connected analog to an Allen&Heath QU-PAC with the ME1 system.
i sold my
-Lehle Bass IQ/ DI
-Lehle Akustik IQ/DI
-Lehle sonic spark
-Vox tonelab
-my monitor Controller and much more
Now i got just 1 unit and it sounds much better. The plugins are amazing.
Im really looking forward to buy an Apollo 8p as second unit.

Apollo 8...Simply Great

We are so fortunate to be in this era of technology and the impact it has had on Home Studios. I have gone from analog tape to digital and during that transition there was something clearly missing. With UA's Apollo 8 and the UAD-2 platform we have not only gained the warmth of analog but we have surpassed the audio quality. The 4 Unison pre's on this unit are pristine and using the Unison technology to track with a Neve 1073 Preamp and EQ for example is outstanding. You can bypass the Pre's however if you wish if you own a great standalone pre. I am very excited about this product and feel like I have what it takes now to push out some quality productions. Be sure to get enough DSP however as I find myself reaching more and more for the amazing plugins like the Manley Massive Passive Eq. Outstanding sound and space that it creates. Additionally I have purchased the Apollo Twin Duo which works great together with the Apollo 8...I am able to keep the Twin on my desktop and use it to quickly adjust line and volume settings. Universal Audio is one of those companies that simply satisfies me as a consumer. Amazing quality and the support is great!

Exceptional -Sound -Integration of Console in DAW plus flexible Routings

Exceptional Sound in particular analog/digital and digital/analog converter - no color ! No fatigue of listening during operation !
Good electrical adjustment of analog Ins and Outs
Good and stable software integration of UADs console in DAW plus flexible routings from DAW, to DAW, digital and analog ins and outs. Important the option of using consoles recall in every single individual DAW session. Nothing is left to chance.
Probably in further releases an automation of console would be appreciated (e.g. vol, balance etc plus plug in functions) !!?
The housing of the Apollo 8 is very stable as stable as my two UREI 1176LN which I run for about 30 years. No obvious quality spreads itself in the fact that the device is manufact. in China.

UAD Apollo 8 Duo

I recently upgraded from the first gen Apollo to second gen and i must say, the converters alone are a worth the upgrade. The clarity and dynamics sound incredible, unfortunately it also reveals flaws in your past mixes you throught were the tits. The ability to bypass all preamps is a huge plus if you use all your i/o with outboard gear. The only negitive on my end would the Console 2.0, the i/o setup is not as intuitive with outboard gear as the previous console. It took UA tech support and myself an hour and a half setup the i/o properly, and I still don't quite understand, but i'm sure a lot of people like it better. I do recommend the upgrade or purchase, it sounds fantastic!!

Apollo 8 Duo Outstanding!!!

Upgraded from Apogee & UAD Sat Quad FW to the Apollo 8 Duo TB plus UAD Sat Quad TB for my home studio.

I have been really blown away by the improved sound quality of my recordings. and love the real-time tracking ability, the features and ease of use of the device and Console software, the level of integration with Logic and extendability of the system. I regularly used UA plug-ins before, but the Unison technology takes them to another level. Just outstanding!!!

Thanks UA for great products and support.

Great Product, Great Deal

Ended up getting this as an upgrade for my apollo twin duo, and got the quad for $2000 even from proaudiostar brand new. Now just waiting for my free satellite quad to come in the mail :)
