I needed additional I/O for my studio and added the x8 to my existing Apollo 8 Quad. Integrating was seamless, and managing all of the routing is simply glorious in Console. The sound quality is incredible, and with both interfaces running my UAD plugins I couldn't be happier with the reduced load on my CPU. I purchased the x8 while on promo with the Sphere mic, which I haven't received yet, but look forward to trying that out soon! Thanks, UAD. Now stop taking all my money for a little while, ok?

Incredible conversion and sound quality

I have moved from Apollo Twin to the Apollo X8. First very noticable difference - the output sound quality is way cleaner - the low end is smoother, the high end is extremely detailed, compared to the Twin. Even the headphones output sounds dramatically better! The stereo image is very clear. Headroom is just enough for working with loud and modern music. I/O is perfect for a hybrid setup (production and recording / mixing and mastering). It's probably one of the most important purchases for my studio.

WDM audio in Windows STILL BROKEN after 2 years

WDM audio is still busted as of November 14, 2023. What does this mean? Anything outside ASIO playback, like YouTube, Spotify, video games, etc. is glitchy. Pops and crackles.

Universal Audio is aware of it and still has no solution. I’ve been using their products for almost 10 years now, and I absolutely love the plugins and hardware itself. Very well made. Heck, the tech support around this issue was top-tier as well. However, I cannot fully recommend this product with how obviously busted it is outside of your DAW integration. Which may be a non-issue for you, but it’s absolutely a problem for myself and many others.

If it wasn’t for this issue, I’d give the product a 5 star review. It’s a wonderful tool for the studio. It’s just a real pain in the @$$ and embarrassing every time a client wants to reference a YouTube song, or something on Spotify, or literally anything outside my DAW.

Do better, Universal Audio.

Incredibly powerful addition to my work space. Plays well with my X4 and LogicProX. Easy set up. The information from UAD and YouTube makes the entire process easy and seamless

A Worthy Upgrade

Pretty easy to install and connect, which is great. It definitely is a step up from my previous Apollo Twin X Duo. More inputs, two independent headphone jacks/pots, and push button to alternate monitors. Impressive routing flexibility, which does require some mental effort to grasp fully. Improved my plugin potential when recording . It meets my current needs with ease. I can confidently recommend it for an intermediate home studio (and more!)

Top notch quality x8 Apollo with sphere mic

So glad I took the plunge and upgraded to the x8 Apollo and got the sphere mic thrown in for free. Sound quality is awesome and plenty of options with inputs. The Sphere mic is an absolute game changer too. Things just sit in the mix without having to tweak and stack up plugins. Great stuff UAD!

Für mich als Amateurproduzent ist es mit der Apollo x 8 und den verschiedenen Plugins eine neue Welt, die zu erkunden jetzt noch mehr Spaß macht. Es gibt aktuell nichts Besseres für mich.

apollo X8 Essential for live performances

This X8 is used for live performances and uses 480 reverb and noise reduction, which has greatly helped me with my work. I deeply love it and cannot do without it

I don’t know what I’d do without Apollo

I did a lot of research before deciding on Apollo. It did not disappoint. I have 2 of them now. When I need another it will be a no brainer. Clean and clear. Easy to use but with all the routing options that you’ll ever need. Brilliant. Thank you UA.

Love the Apollo x8

I'm in love with my Apollo X8 gear. Wish I could have could control the headphone controls in the console software since I have it fixed on a wall above my tv

Very satisfied

This device is used for live performances, equivalent to having 4 480 reverbs, which is unexpected

So good!

So thrilled with my purchase of an X8 recently .. it’s like if Apple and Tesla had a baby. I can’t find one fault with it! Also using LUNA, coming from 20 years of ProTools use, and it’s mind blowing. So good!

Apollo x

The apollo x has been a significant upgrade to my setup. It is a pleasure to work with this unit as well as the amazing UAD plugins.

Almost Everything I could ever need

Sounds great, very simple to understand and work with.
I was very pleasantly surprised with how good the preamps sound. I knew they were good but i didn't think it could stand against my external pre's.
a few things i would have loved to have in Console is more virtual channels, and the ability to record the cues (to use as internal summing for instruments recorded with multiple mic's.)

I really enjoy the hardware options. Easy line ins and outs, soft, clocking and ADAT. Great

Unusable due to latency

Hey there, there must be something wrong with mine. However, the phone number directa me to your website and no one responds to my ticket. So now I just have a brand new very expensive new product that doesn’t work and I cannot return without a reaction from ua…

Love everything about it.

Sleek, superior sonics, high plugin counts, smooth workflow, and great integral preamps.
Very happy with my new set up. Even better than I had hoped it would be.
