Unison preamps are game-changing

I'm currently running four channels from my API 3124 into line inputs in the Apollo 8. Then I have two 1073 unison preamps and two 610-A preamps loaded onto channels 5-8 in my default console configuration. This setup is so great that I'm going to sell some of my other analog preamps.

Big Sound - Great Fun - Need a second one!

BIG SOUND - Very good usability and more fun to record small Band projects at home now with one 8p. The DSP power should be more efficient when no plugin is loaded!
Thank you very much for the welcome gift in form of 2-3 plugins and a free Quad Satellite!!!

2 ème live avec mon apollo


Bat, orgue Hamond, folk, voix.

Cette fois ci, un petit set bluesy rock.

Le Manley Voxbox sur la voix pfiouuuu.La couleur ci prêtait bien juste magnifique.Le régisseur plateau au café arrive en coulisse pendant la balance voix et ce demandait quel mix j'écoutais pour avoir avoir que du lead qui sortait...c'est vous dire comme il se prit le lead dans sa face!!!!Non sérieux, vraiment magnifique!
Je ne sais pas comment sonne les originaux mais en fait pour le prix les solutions de preamps donc de couleurs, la latence....Je ne regrette rien.

Ah oui j'ai oublié.Le tout en record 18 tracks sous Logic Pro X.(Mac OS El Capitan avec un Mac mini I5 2,5 GHz turbo 3,1 Ghz, midas XL48 en adat=0 Bug).

Bientôt Le mix du Live! Hâte !!!!Comme un enfant avec un jouet tout neuf.

Si vous êtes régisseur et que vous voulez booster votre M7CL je vous conseil de foncer!!!!

Ps:une carte adat sera le bienvenue pour simplifier le câblage.

Works well with Apollo Twin DUO

Loving the way this integrates with my desktop Twin Duo to give me more processing power and a really fun desktop controller system. The Apollo 8p sounds great and gives me the I/O I need to have a streamlined and flexible project studio. Great job!

I love the Apollo 8p to the moon and back!

Having owned a Silver-face Apollo Quad TB, I already totally relied on UA for my tracking and mixing. This Apollo 8p is wonderful, now I no long have to use an inferior pre to have enough xlrs inputs to track live drums between the silver-face and the 8p.
I'm so very happy with the quality and reliability of this wonderful toolbox.

Worth It!

This is my first UA purchase and I am very pleased. The sound is top shelf and really opens up possibilities to create. If you pair it with high quality monitors your mixes will really come alive!

Apollo 8 duo live mix

Premier mix live avec mon apollo 8 duo.Tres bonne impression!
Piano voix.Sur le piano un couple de Neumann KM184 en unisson avec le UA 610B + UA precision chanel-strip en insert sur ma M7CL(post preamp et HPF biensur) ainsi que pour la voix 2 DPA 4060 eux mêmes en unisson avec le 610B + un 1176(je me suis arrêté là pour les plug car la duo en 48 khz était à genoux.La couleur est tout de suite très agréable(attention, oui il faut aimer une colorie et c'est ce qu'on recherche quand on se sert des plug UA).Sensation d'avoir plus de stabilité au niveau de l'accroche (peut etre dû à la faible latence donc à un meilleur/moindre déphasage).Pour avoir testé avec des petits projets sous logicx j'ai profité de la promo une apollo acheté une satellite offerte et je ne regrette pas.Je ne vois pas comment faire tourner mes 4 preamps unisson sans cette addition de 4 processeurs shark.D'où sans doute cette promotion pour satisfaire les "customeurs"...
Mac os El capitan aucun bug.
Plug un peu chers il faut attendre les promos.
Petit bémol, pour 2000€ on pourrait avoir un câble thunderbolt de fourni.
Pour l'instant je ne regrette vraiment pas mon achat, je suis pressé de travailler plus avec!

PS:j'ai également une fireface802, pour ce qui est des preamps et de la conversion y a pas photo.UA is the best!!!!

Champions League

Just finished some film music recordings with the Apollo 8p.
I bought it on a friend's recommendations. Exceeded all expectations.
Uncolored, clear and authentic recordings of a previously not known quality. Hight class!

Every single detail is top notch. It´s all you need in a single box. Goodbye SSL boards and outboard gear. Apollo 8p takes care of it now.

if you want professional music studio quality the Apollo 8p is for you!

My Focusrite Interface unexpectedly gave out after about a year and a half so I had to buy a new audio interface. At the time it was still six months before construction of my new studio would be completed so after doing my research and reviewing my options I decided to purchase some of the new studio equipment early. I looked around at different top of the line interfaces and settled on the Apollo 8p.

When it finally arrived I was really excited to have access to all of my normal equipment and a working audio interface until I opened it up and discovered it didn't come with a thunderbolt cable. Not a big deal but I think one should be included, anyways after a short trip to best buy I got everything set up.

To celebrate I put on some 311 and I was absolutely blown away by how amazing the sound was. This definitely has better sound than any other A.I. i've used. Next I started to test out all of my instruments and listen to their recordings and the quality was great. It took me a second to figure out the console but once I did I plugged my mic in and started testing out plugins.

The 10-20 plugins that you do get access to are amazing. But the other 200 all cost an arm and a leg which is a little bit upsetting since the equipment cost $3000. however I will point out that the equipment is worth every penny!

All in All this is an amazing product and if you want professional music studio quality the Apollo 8p is for you!

All-In-One Toolbox

This interface has blown me away. I haven't compared it in person to some of the other heavy hitter interfaces (Apogee Symphony, Lynx Aurora 16, Avid I/O, etc.), but this box definitely gets everything done in one package.

It's got great converters and preamps onboard, and there's 8 of them. That's a huge benefit, and you can keep all the other features. It's a monitor controller, with a big tactile rotary knob for the monitors which you can push to mute the mains, it's got a alternate monitor(s) button, a user assignable function knob, and two headphone ports. And, it's all with no latency monitoring pre-DAW.

Bottom line, there's so many other products that I would have had to buy to get all the features in this box. Also, it's got tons of DSP. I can load an instance of my favorite EQ, Compressor, and more on every single channel in a 32-channel session. Pretty amazing.

I love it, the sounds of the plugins and preamps, the best! Here is a little vintage snippet that I just recorded: https://www.facebook.com/morgan.agren1/videos/vb.599956602/10154000666376603/?type=3&theater

Great Hardware! Console Software still needs improvement

I already had an Apollo Twin from its early batches. I wasn't happy mainly with its HiZ input when using Unison Gtr Plugins such as Marshall JMP 2203, it didn't sound quite right to me. With Apollo 8P, now it sounds as UA advertises. I noticed an overall sound improvement over its preamps as well, so it is a lot more than just an Apollo Twin "bigger" brother, so you know.
I bought A8p to use on live purposes, as a latency free monitoring system running Unison plugins along with Logic Pro and Ableton Live.
Now UA really needs to improve its CONSOLE software a lot more for that type of task, such as MIDI controlling/automation and preset handling. The labeling on Console should follow a Session Preset, as well as CUE and Aux positions... I mean, there is a lot to be done on that regard. The way that the mirroring actually does not replicate the chosen port, is kind of frustrating, but it works just as a hardware should behave, so that's fine... That's rock solid. If you UA guys ever need some extra ideas, let me know!!! :-)

This is everything I've been looking for in one box. A top notch sound and a solid software with a lot of routing options. Just awesome.

First of all, the Apollo 8p sounds incredible! Routing and integration into my existing rig were a breeze. HOWEVER… for $3K, the DSP is lacking BIG time! At 96kHz, I get a Unison plugin, and one… maybe two additional plugins on each channel before the processor is maxed. Now try adding Ocean Way or AKG verb to an aux and real trouble hits! I was looking to start recording/mixing everything at 192kHz, but at that rate, I barely get Unison plugins on each channel before the Apollo 8p processor overloads. It's like UA made the Apollos just to wet your appetite so you have to spend more money on their satellite DSP accelerators.
