Simplement Parfait !

Une carte son très complète, avec des composants de qualités et cela s’entend ! Accompagné du Quad Core, qui excelle toujours autant.
Une solution complète et des mises à jours, pour un matériel qui ne devient pas obsolète après quelques années ! Que dire de plus… Console 2.0 qui accompagne ce matériel, propose de multiples solutions, pour éviter une console de mixage hardware.
J’aurai dut investir beaucoup plus tôt dans une Apollo UAD !!

Even Better Than All the Positive Reviews...

I started out my recording career with all analog equipment--first the Tascam Portastudio, then 4-track reel-reel to half-track mastering. I learned a lot. Then, in the late 90s, my first forays into digital audio started out with the M-Audio products and as I got better and my needs grew, Focusrite. The Saffire Pro 40 was fantastic, and soon I moved on to the Clarett 4pre with thunderbolt on my Mac Pro Cylinder. While I loved the quality of the Clarett, I needed something more. I had always admired the Universal Audio products from afar, but they were well out of my price range for what I needed.

Cut to this month: I had the opportunity to purchase an Apollo 8 used for a very good price--in fact cheaper than buying a Focusrite Clarett 8pre, which is what I was intending. I was always wary about not just the cost of buying an Apollo, but the cost of the plug-ins, etc. Well after taking the plunge, and adding the classic plug-in options that are free, and that are easily purchased during the holiday sale, I have everything I need for now.

The quality of the Apollo 8 is impeccable. The Unison preamps work as well as my actual Marshalls and Fenders--the only way I can distinguish them from the real deal is because the sound is slightly cleaner from the Apollo (no room sound)--that's it! I used to have to do all sorts of post-processing of my guitar mic'ed from the cabinet or my vocals going dry into the very nice AIR preamps of the Focusrite, but here, all that there's left to do is some slight tweaking for them to sit properly in the mix. I always thought my vocals were very thin, yet recording them here for a scratch vocal track through the Neve 1073 plug-in, they sounded full and nearly mix-ready.

Again, I really loved my Focusrite products and their fantastic support over the last 13+ years (and I continue to use them through my Apollo via ADAT!), but I have to say that the Apollo system is not just hype--I feel like my recording has taken a huge step forward in quality and I look forward to many more years of recording.

Incredible unit

I am happy with absolutely everything I get from my Apollo 8 especially the fact that it is so easy to daisy chain it to my Apollo 8 and monitor from there whilst expanding my unison enabled mic pres!

Apollo Quad for Prema Studio

We bought this unit used as a Quad with 4 unison preamps and just inserted a TB3 option card and for a very reasonable price we have another studio worker to our beloved Apollo x6, thanks so much Universal Audio for the great units you make...

very happy chappy

like the quality of the unison pres
like quality and tones of the plugins
like the versality of the appollo - whether through console or whichever DAW of choice.

C'est ma deuxième Apollo firewire, mais je les utilise avec un mac, la première a une carte Thunderbolt 2 et la seconde une carte Thunderbolt 3 et ça fonctionne très bien. La latence est plus qu'acceptable même pour une utilisation en temps réel.
Je n'ai pas trouvé opportun de mettre beaucoup plus d'argent dans les modèles plus récents qui certes mieux, mais à mon avis la différence ne justifie pas l'écart de prix.

Apollo FireWire

I use this product for my live sound shows along with studio stuff. The ability to take my studio plugins and pre amps into the live world so easy is what makes this product really amazing.

I bought recently my Apollo 8 and must say I am delighted with the zero latency electric guitar emulations. My tones directly into console through the unison pre are first class - the rest of the features that this unit offer are in my world absolutely correct. I also have a satellite and a 2012 Mac mini running pro tools - no issues

Apollo Quad

Absolutely love it… had an Apogee I/O for years and was hesitant to change. Best change I’ve made

Great Audio interface

Great interface and plug-ins, just have a little issue, which I believe UA should have a video to switch from FireWire to Thunderbolt.

I went from RME to Prism Sound and now into the UA... and I gotta tell you the Apollo has nothing to ask other Hi end and more expensive brands. Very versatile, nice preamps and of course, Plugins are awesome!

Love this gear

I have been wanting one of these for a long time and finally got it. I love the fact that I can now run my 500 series rack into it and get some analog mixing done. So dope!!
