Great - but wish it had grouped outputs.

Apollo 8 is an awesome piece of kit. However I wish it were possible to group outputs for surround applications.

本当に最高

録音時の音はもちろん、モニタリング時の音も素晴らしい。
UADプラグインの質も至高で非の打ち所がない。

BEST INTERFACE!

I've owned my Apollo 8 Quad for over a year now! It has been a great experience. Outstanding sonic quality and built tough. I call it my analog console in a rack, lol.

Amazing Difference Maker

I've been using a UAD-2 Satellite for the past four years, taking advantage of UA's wonderful collection of plugins. Recently I upgraded my interface from a very good unit, to UA's Apollo 8 to take advantage of the Unison pre technology. The difference is startling, and I feel like I'm just scratching the surface so far. Vocals and drums in particular have been the most noticeable to me. I'm very, very happy with this purchase.

Perfect

A much needed upgrade (more inputs!) from the already stellar Apollo Twin I was using, and still do thanks to the effortless cascading. Love it.

An Embarrassment of Riches...

I just upgraded from an Apollo Twin DUO Core and am literally swimming in reverb! So much power and all those dedicated inputs are have changed the way I work. I was thinking about getting a decent analog mixer for my vintage synths but the Apollo does all of that with the power of Unison. Now it's time to get prolific!

Incredible

I own a twin and now an apollo 8. All I can say is UA = professional quality. Getting the best sound with the best plugins on the planet before it hits the DAW is a great thing. UA for life!

Awesome

This is my second Apollo interface. I’ve have a twin for about 4 years now. Wish inputs and outputs could easily be disabled and reassigned for DAW, and wish Console tracks could be dragged and dropped to customize view. Other than those minor things, the UAD workflow and sound are just great. I find myself spending less time tweaking and fine tuning plugin settings and more time making music.

Destroys your computer

Dont buy this. The software provided is malware and it will drain you computer network and CPU capacity, even when the units are not being used. I have complained to UA about this, but they are very reluctant to admit. However, as the activity monitoring on you computer will show, the UA Mixer Engine is hammering away constantly. UA software is malware per definition. My computer, a brand new quad Macbook Pro, eventually went almost dead. I then uninstalled all UA software and it came to live instantly like new. Don't do it. Just don't. Buy my brand new 8 and 8P Apollos if you insist.

Game changer...

This is a major upgrade in my studio. The AD/Da is very clean and my set up sounds so much better. I got the DUO core because I had a free satelite with it and it will be very usefull. It is dsp saturated very fast so 4 core extra will be a charm. I would very much love to group outputs for a futur surround set-up in the console section. Also I wonder why when we go out of dap we canot run the plug-ins in native mode. Last little thing I would love those 2 heaphones out also in the back pannel. Would be a great addition (less jacks in front of me on the desk...)
Well this is my 3-4 concerns. The harware is amazing, full of In/out, the console is great and very intuitive. I juste pluged it and play...Wow ! Recording is very fun with all the FX before going to Pro tools, I'm making music and get vreative very fast. This a studio console with lot's of gear in front of me. One last thing it would be amazing to open other plug-ins in the console even if we add latency to it. Would be great and very simple to track MIDI instruments and print into Pro Tools already Eq'd and compressed. Those are not problems, more wishes....It's full of possibilities and I am amazed. Thanks guys !

1er essai apollo 8

pour faire les premiers réglages 1er fichier PTools "essai" : le son est tellement supérieur qu'il faut que je lui trouve un vrai titre maintenant...

Great interface, not so good drivers

This interface is one of the best specially paired with an external clock to bring out some mids and butter up the punchy lowend a bit while making it a bit less thumpy and more precise, it sounds amazing but apparently the intelligence agencies love making it pop and crackle and they are complying with them.
I've read things such as 17 percent load on an on a quad DSP idling = The manufacturer Broke the Driver and hence you get pops and crackles, 19-21-23 % load on a quad dsp idle means you're in the "SAFE ZONE"

TRUE HD INTERFACE

I had an AVID HD/IO with 3 AVID HDX cards and do you know how many plug ins I could run using those cards. NONE other than the Avid plug in's which are not that great. NO UAD or WAVES. Error messages galore. Now I run my Apollo system and have plug ins run on my interface and not by my computers DSP. A huge game changer.

best audio interface

what else to say , this my third uad apollo purchase

the final stop (Maybe=)

I used to own the silverface Apollo & i didn't like its AD/DA conversion, so that was sold. I also used to own Prism Orpheus & Apogee Symphony MK I. With all of these options I found the sound somewhat flat with not enough detail and "air". This interface sounds great although on paper the converter specs are not really the best out. Which proves that there is way more to conversion than plain dynamic range specs etc.
But the greatest surprise came ... in the headphones amp section! I own a pair of Sennheiser HD800S. At first I tried them with Apogee Groove - really flat and impossible to work on. So I purchased the Sennheiser HDVD800 amp/DAC especially engineered for them. Flat and boring, hard to work! Bought a crazy Wireworld usb cable - a little better. I also used Sonarworks calibration - a little better... But none of them made me say AHAA thats the reference sound. Until I plugged them into the Apollo's amp!
The separation / dynamics / transients / air - all of these are absolutely superb! I couldn't believe this was happening with a stock interface headphone amp, tried 770pro's and other cans. Wow! I have previously been to a great headphone dealer & tried many many super-expensive amp/phones combos, and to be honest this one is by far the best reference-quality I heard. What?! Yes, exactly. So don't believe someone's hype & specs, hear the stuff first. And this interface is to stay & I will expand this system in the future for outboard gear. BUY and enjoy.

Amazing

I love UAD, the Apollo 8 & 16 are what I’m rocking and the sound is great, plugins sound amazing ...thanks uad!!!!

Mostly happy...

So, I have a lynx l22... the 8p clock runs the lynx amazingly! The d/a on the lynx seems noticeably larger, deeper, and it has a bigger image. The UAD output sounds very 2D to me until you bypass the output gain stage... once you do... it seems to have a little more detail than the lynx, but it’s still not as fun to listen to.

Regarding, a/d, the 8p line in converters seemed to edge out the lynx... the 8p feels more accurate and coherent... the bass is deeper, the highs both, more present and smoother...

In all, I’m very happy... ultimately I’m still doing my final d/a with the lynx on the UAD clock, while taking advantage of the UADs awesome a/d converters...

Adding the plugins and the thunderbolt drivers to the deal makes it worth it.

Side note: the first one I got had a nasty problem with channel 1!... UAD was quick to help and I managed to get a pristinely operating replacement... I feel shipping mistreatment probably was the culprit... the exterior box arrived punctured and the inside one was dented. Can’t blame UA for that...

The unison preamps are remarkable too... not quite the “lushness” with the 610 emulation I was hoping for, but definitely clarity and depth...

Overall, I’m very happy with the a/d and not so much the d/a. I feel they should work on this for future models. My analog volume trim pot was a blatant ugrade over the Apollo’s volume trim... I bypassed the UAD output gain stage for a very obvious and instant improvement in depth and transient response. That was disappointing, because I was hoping to utilize the fcn button...
