Just like it...
So... what to say? All hi quality equipment is expensive! Everybody knows UAD plugins are the best! With few UAD plugins and Apollo interface u get something really really good. I will recommend instead buying cheap interface to buy Apollo 8p. I tested and used different interfaces and for my opinion Apollo interface is most practical...
Hooked it up to our live rig and it just plays fine.
Loving the Apollo 8P
Just tracked a few drum tracks with the Apollo 8P and UA Store Plug-Ins. Using AKG 112 on Kick, Miktek PM10 on Snare, Sennheiser 421 on Toms, Shure KSM 32 OHs, and SM 81 on Hats. Absolutely no outboard pre-amps or compressors. I love how the Apollo captures the character of each mic, not to mention the DSP technology on all 8-inputs. Can't wait for the 16P (hint, hint) version to hit the market!
