Ideal for hybrid digital/analog recording studios, the Universal Audio Apollo 16 FireWire/Thunderbolt-ready audio interface features 16 analog ins matched by 16 analog outs -- twice the analog I/O of the original Apollo interface. With 16 analog ins and outs sailing into your DAW via UA's pristine 192 kHz/24-bit conversion, you can stack two or more Apollo 16s to build a huge multitrack studio. Best of all, the Apollo 16 gives you powerful onboard UAD-2 QUAD real-time processing through Universal Audio's range of classic UAD analog emulation plug-ins.
With four processor cores to take the load off your host computer, the UA Apollo lets you add more and more plug-ins on more and more tracks -- tracking and mixing through digitally re-created versions of high-end gear from Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Studer and more. To get you started, the Analog Classics plug-in bundle is included, with UA's top-notch models of the LA-2A and 1176LN compressors and Pultec EQP-1A equalizer.
Best-in-Class Converters and Design
The Apollo 16 represents decades of Universal Audio hardware expertise. High-end 192 kHz/24-bit converters, an all-analog circuit design, and DC-coupled outputs come together in this flagship interface to provide you with extremely low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and an exceptionally high dynamic range.
Expandable Connectivity with Advanced Routing Capabilities
So named for its number of ins and outs, the Apollo 16 sports 16x16 analog I/O via DB-25 connections, which go hand in hand with mixing consoles, outboard processors, cue/headphone systems, and the like. For even more I/O, you can cascade 2 Apollo 16 units over MADI for an expanded system with 8 UAD processors and 32x32 simultaneous analog I/O -- great for handling large professional mixes.
The Apollo 16 also boasts four stereo Cue mixes with individually assignable outputs, and a "Virtual I/O" feature that enables real-time UAD Processing of DAW tracks and virtual instruments. On the interface's rear panel, you will find dedicated XLR monitor outputs and stereo AES-EBU digital I/O.
Track, Mix, and Master with UAD Plug-ins
Real-time UAD plug-in processing is at your fingertips! Since UA's Apollo 16 allows recording in real time through UAD-powered plug-ins, you can monitor, audition, and "print" audio through impressive emulations of gear from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, and Studer. The Apollo 16's UAD processing capabilities let you pamper your sound with DSP plug-ins throughout the music-production process -- laying down demos all the way through mastering.
Go Deeper within Your DAW
Thanks to Core Audio and ASIO drivers, UA's Apollo 16 is compatible with all major DAWs. The Console application (included) and companion Console Recall plug-in (VST/AU/RTAS) provide control and recall of all interface and UAD plug-in settings within your DAW sessions, no matter when you decide to go back to them. Recall your settings months, even years later. A special PT mode ensures that Avid Pro Tools can make the most of the Apollo 16's sixteen analog inputs/outputs for hardware inserts. With the Apollo 16 in your rack, it's easy to integrate the rest of your rack gear into your Pro Tools sessions!
Want next-gen connectivity on your interface? Just install a dual-port Thunderbolt Option Card (available separately), and get complete compatibility with Intel's high-bandwidth Thunderbolt technology for Mac. Adding Thunderbolt to the Apollo 16 means you get improved performance at high sample rates, greater UAD plug-in instances, and reduced UAD plug-in latency in your DAW versus the Apollo's standard FireWire connection. There's nothing wrong with FireWire; Thunderbolt is just a newer technology that's better equipped to handle your gear.
Providing way more bandwidth than what FireWire can offer, Thunderbolt makes it easy to connect multiple devices in series with the Apollo 16 -- think processors, hard drives, and additional computer monitors -- and be rewarded with fast, flawless performance every time. You can get even more UAD plug-in processing power when you add on a Thunderbolt-to-PCIe chassis and one or more UAD-2 DSP Accelerator cards.
