MFR# APLS-HE

Product Description

The New Universal Apollo Solo Heritage Edition Thunderbolt Interface has all the benefits of the iconic Apollo Solo, including class-leading UA audio conversion, SOLO Core realtime UAD plug-in processing, and two Unison mic preamps. It goes a step further, with a complete software suite of 5 award-winning Universal Audio plug-in titles, featuring gear from Teletronix, Pultec, and UA, perfect for any studio.

The Apollo Heritage Editions include plug-ins promoted in UAD Spark, Universal Audio’s subscription plug-in collection that can run on Mac, with no UA hardware required.

A Special Edition featuring Iconic UAD Analog Collections Onboard

A hallmark feature of the New Apollo Thunderbolt Interface is its Realtime UAD Processing, which lets you run the full library of UAD plug-ins with near-zero latency. In addition, Apollo Solo Heritage Edition gives you five premium plug-in titles that are worth over $1,300 for maximum sound production in your studio — including the full suite of UA's Teletronix and 1176 compressors,  Pure Plate Reverb, all Pultec EQs, and UA 610 Unison mic preamps. These premium Heritage Edition titles are provided in addition to Apollo Solo's "Realtime Analog Classics" bundle of gear, which gives you the most accurate library of classic analog emulations that are included with any professional audio interface bundle.

Included in Apollo "Heritage Edition" Thunderbolt Bundle:

  • UA 1176 Classic Limiter Collection
  • UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection
  • Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection
  • Pure Plate Reverb
  • Pultec Passive EQ Collection

The full UAD plug-in library features more than 100 titles and offers everything from classic Moog filters to Ampex tape to Lexicon reverbs — with more being added regularly. These are the exact same plug-ins used on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Billie Eilish, Foo Fighters, and more.

Two Unison Preamps: The Sound of Neve, Helios, API, Avalon & More

Apollo Solo Heritage Edition Thunderbolt Interface features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, allowing you track through exact mic preamp emulations from Manley, SSL, Neve, API, Avalon, Helios, and Universal Audio. A UA exclusive, Unison is a hardware-software product that nails the tone of these amazing and sought-after tube and solid-state mic preamps — including their input impedance, component-level circuit gear, and gain stage "sweet spots".

Unison technology is found on Apollo Solo Interface's front-panel Hi-Z instrument input, offering dead-on impedance and gain matching for any guitar and bass amp models from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, and more iconic gear for your studio.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
