I love it!

Professional converters quality with the possibility of running one of the best plugins in the market today. What more could I ask for?

Great upgrade

I had the old Apollo Silverface firewire and recently upgraded to the Apollo 8 and was pleasantly surprised to sound a bit better. The converters are a great upgrade and the unison hi-z is awesome. Console 2 is a great upgrade too. The only downside is that I had to buy a mac to run it. No regrets there, the workshop and ease to setup on a mac is much easier than Windows.

adding another Apollo to the Collection

just bought the Apollo 8 and love it, i am a silver face thunderbolt user, and the addition with the black apollo 8 is fantastic, twice the power now, and can't wait for the satellite to come in, UAD is all i use now a days, been in the studio for 16 years and have used every software plugin/ hardware unit there is and i have to say that hands down UA has got it going on, my sound has drastically increased which in turn has made me a very busy engineer, i continue to expand my UA rig with all of the great plugs that you have to offer, keep up the good work UA, i know i will be.

been using the apollo silver face for while. compared to the silver face,the apollo thunderbolt is better in the ADDA conversion. compared to my lynx aurora, it is similar, yet i find that the apollo is slightly more detail in the upper end. the cascading system works flawlessly. one of my best investment. Thanks UA

It's Good Stuff

Love my Apollo 8. It really adds the excitement back into working with music and sound that my previous interface lacked. It's just a pleasure to use.

You can't touch these convertors..!

I've had a UAD2 SoloLaptop for a while & already knew the unmatched sound of the plug-in's. However, I quickly discovered that 1 processor was not going to do it. So I finally made the jump to an Apollo8QuadTB. The 1st thing I did was listen to a song off itunes. Instantly I heard sounds and nuances in the songs that I hadn't heard before! SO CLEAN & CRISP! The difference in sound was like I'd gone and spent $5k on new monitors. Next i tested the inputs with high-end analog gear. What blew me away about this is that in the past I've always heard a difference between the input & playback with this gear. This is the only time I've heard no difference between input & playback! Hats off to UAD!

Best interface I've ever used. It sounds great, looks great, and performs very well.

Excellent service and hardware

This is my first UA product and so far I'm very impressed both with the unit itself and with UA as a company. My unit was one of the ones with a Hi-z problem, UA replaced it free of charge and gave me $200 of free plug-ins for the (very minor) inconvenience. I think things like this really show the character of a company, and I have no reservations about buying more products from UA in the future. The Apollo sounds great, is very well made, the plug-in emulations are the best I have used, all in all I highly recommend it. However, I wish they hadn't told me about offering a free UAD-2 Satellite to all users who purchase an Apollo 8, 2 weeks after I did, feels like they're saying "look what you could of won if only you'd waited, looser!"

Home Rig Centerpiece

Bear in mind, dear reader, that I'm coming from a Digi002 rack to this Apollo 8 tbolt in my home rig (granted, I've had professional "success" with even that crap-box in the scheme of things...it's all about knowing how to use your tools). Immediate openness and clarity in the D/A monitoring. Plugged my bass into a Great River (line-in to the Apollo for A/D) as I normally do but the signal was SO much cleaner and tighter, both audibly and visually as a waveform. I've been waiting for the right box to come around to ditch my Digi and so far this has been it. Obviously in my case the UA plugins were a calling card as this unit balances the functionality I need with quality and the access to plugs you wouldn't get with an Ensemble, say.

From the Twin Duo to the 8Quad

I recently upgraded from the twin duo to the new black 8Quad Apollo. It is nice to have the additional I/O for analog summing and the Apollo was just s breeze to set up..it literally took me 2 minutes to get this up and running since I already had a UAD account. As for the sound, it's stellar! I just love the plugins available. I mix mostly rap, and the 1073 preamp 1176s La2as Fatso Culture Vulture Massive Passive and SSL bus comp do the trick every time...don't sleep on the Maag EQ for that finishing touch, and the BaxEQ by Dangerous is just amazing for Stereo field and M/S duties...5 stars!

Apollo 8 Duo

I have been very pleased with my Apollo 8 Duo and Apollo 16 units. They are simple enough to setup and the flexibility they provide made them the clear choice when upgrading my converters. I'm using them to work out of the box in a sort of "inline" setup with a 24ch Wunder console and the integration was seamless. The digital outs of the converters also offer a way to cue headphone mixes and free up the aux section of my analog console during tracking.

First experience

I have my UAD Apollo 8 since 2 weeks now and I'm very happy with my purchase. It was easy to setup and the sound is great. I have a wider and much deeper sound field than I have had with my old interface, that helps me to make the right decisions during a mix.

This is a must own, if you are considering upgrading do not hesitate. This interface will last easily 8-10+ years, the quality is top of its class and the Unison preamp technology is really awesome to use, I am familiar with some of them and its fantastic. When tracking vocals in the studio we would use a Neve preamp with an LA2A along side the SM7b, it was awesome coming home and tracking hearing the samething in the box. I have always wanted this vocal chain in the box and now I do. Just take the dive!

Just Awesome

For a year or so I was looking at replacing my Digi002 needed to get a top sound without going broke buying Avid HD hardware that does not even compare to the sound of the Apollo I done a lot of research on my next audio interface it wasn't an impulse buy, plus the power of using UAD plugins as well. I will have this interface at least the next 10+ years. The quality of sound and performance is just unbeatable for the price sounds better than anything else on the market. This is my first UA piece of gear i am hooked for life. Now if you would make a DAW that would use Console 2.0 as the mixing view i would be even happier lol

Apollo 8 Quad Worth the Upgrade

I sold my apollo quad and got the apollo8 quad.
Aside from looking beautiful in my rack, the unit sounds great, and is compatible with my satellite quad, so I now have the power of 8 processors.
I have more bandwidth off the top because firewire ate up a lot of processing just plugging the damn thing in.
The converters are great, but don't expect a huge difference because the old converters are good too.
Overall I am happy with the unit and recommend the upgrade.
