The best got better.

I have been lucky enough to own every generation of the Apollo interface and the X8 is by far the most versatile yet. It has all the processing power that I need "in the box" to run a small studio without necessarily having to rely on satellites. I cannot recommend this unit enough. The integration with Luna (as with all the other interfaces) is fantastic and has me considering ditching the DAW I have been using for years.

Just like UA promotes it. It really feels like an analog studio during the performance. No noticeable latency whilst having the best sound AND less CPU usage on the host computer of the DAW - Love it!

It's just perfect!

I've been using a silver face Apollo (FW updated with TB 2 option card) for a decade now so you may say I'm a little committed. But look, there is nothing similar on the market that would come even close to this equipment (and the company as a whole).
We started to stream worship evenings with my band over FB during the quarantine and the Apollo FW become a little tight in terms of channel count and DSP as the band was growing. Now, the Apollo FW with TB 2 option card and the x8 work perfectly together. It took only like secods to daisychain the two brother (I'm using an iMac and TB3 connection). The system has a lot of DSP power. Basically, I'm using SSL E channel strip on each channel (percussion, acoustic and electric guitar, keyboard and vocals), some extra compression where it is needed and the EMT250 as a reverberator for this live situation. The sound is amazingly detailed and crystalclear even on the FB. Playing with in-ear monitors (4 different cue mixes with the two Apollos!) using this system is also inspirational for me and the other band members: you can hear such details that are nearly unheard with naked ears. The music is literally breathing.
Customer service and special offers are great at the UA. Big thanks for you guys! I become a huge fun of UA! Just in case (and because I like heavy hardware) I also own an LA-610 Mk II and a Twin Finity hooked up to the Apollo line in basically for tracking vocals and guitars. Digital heaven of sound!

This is a fantastic interface. I had previously an Apollo Twin MKII Usb and I needed a bigger one because I have somw hardware to mix outside and with the X8 I have 8 line inputs and outputs which I found really interesting. Very professional interface with lots of features.

This added to my Universal Audio 4-710D Preamp allows me up to 16 channel of recording with ADAT extension.

I only find on very poor thing and it is that and interface of 2.700 € cost doesn't come with the Thunderbolt cable. This is something terrible that Universal Audio should include in every interface. The Apollo Twin USEB came with the USB cable.

I don't mind paying 80 or 100 € more in the price, but please, include the damn cable becaus if you don't have a cable at home you can't use it when you receive it.

Apollo Anxiety!

I rented the blackface Apollo 8 a few years back, and it changed my life. I had to return it and instantly got anxiety as all I had was a Focusrite to fall back on. So I just managed to scrape together for an Apollo Twin Duo and my anxiety was gone! Soon I added adat, but then was maxing out the Duo chips. So the choice was clear from there, I had to get the x8 to future proof connections and have enough DSP, I'll never look back. Massive UA fan for life!

This is the most amazing and perfect interface conceivable. I’ve been recording for twenty years and I finally have everything I need for a perfect recording and mixing workflow. I want for nothing more. This is far better than any Avid interface available. Thanks UA!

Absolutely excellent

This is truly an incredible audio interface. Its changed my entire production workflow and it looks and feels gorgeous. The only reason for the 4 stars is that the 6 cores in there do feel a little wimpy, I'd like to be able to run more plugin instances on it, and especially for the premium price it does feel a little odd. Regardless, build quality, 10/10, plugins, amazing, functionality, great, 2 headphone slots, so useful, and definitely worth it regardless.

Wonderful piece of equipment

Excellent machine

I am happy with this interface, its sound quality and features.
The knobs could have been better. It comes with a set of plug-ins that can keep you going for a while, although you will likely soon lust for more. All in all UAD offers the best system in my opinion... and now with the added bonus of LUNA: well done UA

For this money, it’s what I would expect from UA

It’s not cheap ! Is it , so I’m not going to rave like some lunatic about it .. the tech is excellent as I’ve come to expect from UA . It sounds great. I think UA could be more transparent about what you are likely to get plug in wise .. IF you already own UA hardware however .. as I can see others have pointed out , you may find you will get very little as you will already have most of them .

Great features, great sound

This is my 2nd x8. Again, great features, great sound, and a perfect companion to my Townsend Labs Sphere L22 microphone system.

Apollo x8!

I've had the original grey face Quad since the beginning, and UA just continues to get better and better!!

What a difference from Apollo Quad! I was not expecting that big of a difference in sound details. These converters are amazing!! I highly recommend!!!!

Ottimo prodotto, manca solo qualche plug-in g

I prodotti Universal Audio sono sempre notevoli ma un voucher per plug-in in omaggio sarebbe stato gradito.

If you think you don't deserve a professional interface, think again.

I used to think that I probably couldn't tell the difference between cheap preamps and expensive ones or cheap conversion and expensive conversion. I told myself this to make myself feel better for having a cheap audio interface for a long time.

Well... turns out preamps and converters make a HUGE difference. If you're coming from a lower end interface, wondering if it's worth the cost to get some UA equipment... yes. It's worth it. You will hear the difference, the clarity, the purity, and the warmth.

How many plugins came with the unit (Apollo x8) not buying any extra?

Did you get any amps like Marshall,Ampeg, etc? Well, I didn't...
I'm just checking what's inside the Console program right now... Havn't installed my DAW yet, but a bit confused about the lack of plugins that was promised on the webpage about this unit...
