Superior Sound Quality In making the Apollo Duo, Universal Audio translated its many years of analog hardware expertise into a hybrid design that works well for today's computer-based musicians. High-end 192 kHz/24-bit converters, analog circuitry, and DC-coupled outputs come together in this interface to provide you with extremely low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and an exceptionally high dynamic range.
You'll Dig the DSP With duo-core processors on board, the Apollo Duo interface takes the processing load off your host computer, so you can record and mix through UAD Powered Plug-Ins with as low as sub-2ms latency. Quickly monitor, audition, and "print" audio using emulation plug-ins of classic analog amps, tape machines, EQs, and more from the likes of Neve, Studer, Manley, and Lexicon. To get you started right away, the Apollo Duo comes with the UAD Analog Classics plug-in bundle, including the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer.
Thunderbolt: The New Face of Connectivity Install a dual-port Thunderbolt Option Card (sold separately), and get complete compatibility with Intel's high-bandwidth Thunderbolt technology for Mac. Adding Thunderbolt to the Apollo Duo 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 -- such as processors, hard drives, and additional computer monitors -- in series with the Apollo Duo and be rewarded with fast, flawless performance every time.
Deeper Integration with Cubase, Live, Pro Tools, and Other DAWs Thanks to Core Audio and ASIO drivers, UA's Apollo Duo is compatible with all major DAWs, from Avid Pro Tools to Apple Logic Pro to Steinberg Cubase. 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 individual DAW sessions, no matter when you decide to go back to them. Recall your settings months, even years later. With the Console Recall plug-in, you get instant access to all of the interface's crucial monitoring and metering functionality, without ever having to leave your DAW.
Flexible Signal Routing and Processing Options Via Console As the Apollo Duo's primary software interface, the Console application has an efficient, intuitive analog console-style design that provides real-time tracking and monitoring with UAD Powered Plug-Ins. You can control all of the Apollo Duo's front-panel hardware features with this Console app, even if your Apollo hardware is out of reach. For the ultimate in flexibility, UAD Powered Plug-Ins can be inserted into any or all Console inputs or auxiliary returns, meaning that you can track audio through high-end plug-ins from Neve, Manley, Studer, Lexicon and the rest right on input.
During the mixing and mastering stages of your project, the Apollo Duo's onboard UAD-2 Duo processors can run the entire UAD Powered Plug-Ins library -- just like a standard UAD-2 DSP Accelerator -- and significantly take the load off your computer CPU.
Hard-to-Beat Hardware Design With this audio interface, you can do almost all your tweaking from the front panel, which hosts the most commonly used features, like Preamp and Monitor level knobs, channel selection, mic pad and low cut, phantom power, and even dual headphone outs with independent level control. What's more, Smart Hi-Z inputs on the front panel detect when you've connected your guitar or bass, and they automatically enable hardware and software monitoring.
So you don't lose audio resolution when you adjust gain, the Apollo Duo's Mic inputs and Monitor outputs are digitally controlled analog. And so you always know where you stand with this Duo, the interface sports high-resolution and high-contrast metering that you can see from any angle.
If you feel like stepping away from the computer, enjoy using the standalone Apollo Duo's audio connections and last-used DSP mixer settings, without a computer in sight.
