Description
UAD plug-in packages available!UAD plug-in packages available!

The Universal Audio Apollo 16 MkII is an elegant update to UA’s premium audio interface — delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. Perfect for professional studios, this 18 x 20 Thunderbolt interface offers twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p, making it ideal for pairing with mixing consoles and outboard processors.

Apollo 16 further distinguishes itself with Realtime UAD Processing, letting you record at near-zero latency through the full range of UAD plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, and more. Apollo Expanded software now allows cascading up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices in a single system over Thunderbolt (Mac), so you can scale up your studio as your needs grow.

With its powerful onboard UAD-2 QUAD processing, genuine UA analog design, and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 16 puts class-leading audio performance in a sleek new package.

FEATURES:

  • Next-generation Apollo A/D and D/A conversion for professional music production
  • Onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core DSP allows Realtime UAD Processing — record through plug-ins from Neve, Lexicon, Studer, Manley, Ampex, and more
  • 18 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 audio interface for Mac with powerful Console 2.0 software control
  • 16 x 16 analog I/O via DB-25 connectors — ideal for pairing with mixing consoles, outboard preamps, etc.
  • Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD devices total over Thunderbolt
  • Includes “Realtime Analog Classics Plus” UAD plug-in bundle with 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A, 1176, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs, and more

WORLD CLASS UA ANALOG DESIGN, SUPERIOR COMPONENTS, AND PREMIUM BUILD QUALITY

Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion improves upon the original Apollo’s gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned, class-leading digital conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD. This results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in your recordings, from tracking and overdubbing, to mixing and mastering.

REALTIME UAD PLUG-IN PROCESSING FOR TRACKING, MIXING, AND MASTERING

While Apollo 16’s “natural” sound is very open and transparent, it can quickly deliver a stunning range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with generous UAD-2 QUAD processing onboard, Apollo’s DSP Acceleration allows for recording through UAD Powered Plug-Ins — with as low as sub-2ms latency — letting you monitor and “print” audio using classic analog emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more.*

Using Apollo, UAD plug-ins are also available during mixing and mastering, putting UAD plug-ins (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64) at your disposal throughout the creative process.

APOLLO EXPANDED AND CONSOLE 2.0

Thanks to Apollo Expanded software, users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows. Apollo Expanded also provides seamless integration with previous generation Apollos over Thunderbolt.With Apollo 16’s Console 2.0 application — a complete re-imagining of Apollo’s original Console software — you can take advantage of over 25 user-requested features such as Channel Strip presets, Drag & Drop functionality, dynamically resizable windows, and more.

Realtime Analog Classics Plus Plug-In Suite Included Standard on all configurations

Right out of the box you receive a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, and Fairchild compressors, the legendary Pultec EQs, and the UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.

From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, or the pump of a genuine Fairchild 670 compressor on drums, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

UA Killin' the Game!
UA's been cornering the game with the Apollo series. This is my third one. I started on the old style Twin, then to the last generation Apollo 8 and now a few months ago got this MKII 16 channel unit. For the cash, the features can't be touched. The sound isn't quite as good as some of the high-end options like the Apogee Symphony, Burl Mothership, etc but you get the plug-in DSP acceleration, a monitor controller with headphone out built in, and at half the price if not a quarter the price of some of the higher end options out there. For most producers working with artists on a budget, this is the best out there.
