Universal Audio Apollo Solo | Heritage Edition with LUNA Analog Essentials

Universal Audio's most compact desktop Thunderbolt interface featuring two Unison preamps, UA's fantastic AD/DA conversion, world-class UAD processing and the Desktop Apollo Heritage and Realtime Analog Classics software bundles plus the LUNA Analog Essentials Bundle

Product Description

The Universal Apollo Solo Heritage Edition has all the benefits of the popular Apollo Solo, including class-leading UA audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and SOLO Core realtime UAD plug-in processing. And it goes a step further, with a software suite of 5 award-winning UAD plug-in titles, featuring Collections from Teletronix, Pultec, and UA.

A Special Edition featuring Iconic UAD Analog Collections Onboard

A hallmark feature of Apollo is its Realtime UAD Processing, letting you run the full library of UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. Taking you a step further, Apollo Solo Heritage Edition gives you 5 premium plug-in titles worth over $1,300 — including the full suite of UA's Teletronix and 1176 compressors, all Pultec EQs, UA 610 Unison mic preamps, and Pure Plate Reverb. These premium Heritage Edition titles are in addition to Apollo Solo's included "Realtime Analog Classics" bundle, giving you the most accurate library of classic analog emulations included with any professional audio interface.

Included in Apollo "Heritage Edition" Bundle:

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

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 Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Foo Fighters, and many more.

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

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

Unison technology is also found on Apollo Solo's front-panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for guitar and bass amp models from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, and more.

LUNA Recording System with Accelerated Realtime Monitoring


Apollo Solo Heritage Edition works with all major DAWs, including Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, and more. But it becomes a fully integrated recording system with LUNA, a powerful free recording application for Mac from Universal Audio. Bolstered by Accelerated Realtime Monitoring,™ LUNA lets you track and mix in an intuitive single-window workflow with unlimited track counts, full AU support, and access to a suite of exclusive LUNA Instruments and Extensions.

From integrated Studer multitrack tape and built-in Neve Summing, to instruments from Moog and more, LUNA transforms Apollo Solo Heritage Edition into an incredibly inspiring music creation platform.

Built for Musicians, Electronic Producers, and Songwriters

Apollo Solo Heritage Edition’s portable Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered design, robust all-metal construction, best-in-class headphone amplifier, and superior audio conversion is perfect for musicians, songwriters, and electronic music producers who need UA quality in a compact package.

LUNA ANALOG ESSENTIALS BUNDLE

Get classic analog studio sound with authentic Tape and Summing Extensions. The analog console and magnetic tape machine are the bedrock of world-class analog recording, and some of the best-sounding records of all time. With the LUNA Analog Essentials Bundle, you get four pillars of professional analog recording — Neve and API analog summing, and integrated Studer and Ampex multitrack tape — at a huge savings.

Built into the fabric of LUNA's mixer, these LUNA Tape and Summing Extensions go beyond plug-ins, giving you authentic analog sounds without having to manage multiple plug‑in windows.

NOW YOU CAN:

Easily add width, depth, and character to your mixes with the first authentic emulation of Neve analog console summing Get mixes with power, clarity, and mid-forward punch using the only emulation of genuine API analog console summing Use the Studer A800 LUNA Extension to easily add tape warmth to your entire mix on a per-channel basis Harness the ATR-102 LUNA Extension to produce punchy, analog tape-infused mixes and masters NEVE SUMMING

A major ingredient behind countless influential records like Nirvana's Nevermind and Queen's Jazz, Neve 80 series consoles are without equal. Developed in partnership with AMS Neve, the Neve Summing Extension emulates the entire summing circuit of an iconic Neve 80 series console — including its coveted 1272 bus amplifiers, giving your LUNA mixes all the color and three-dimensional nonlinearities of Neve's most cherished analog console.

API SUMMING

From Stevie Wonder's Talking Book and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, to Radiohead's Hail to the Thief the mid-forward punch of API's classic analog consoles breathe life into your mixes. Developed in partnership with API, the API Summing Extension emulates the 2520 op-amp and custom output transformer-based summing amps found in legendary API consoles — giving your LUNA mixes the attitude and tone of API's esteemed analog desks.

STUDER A800 MULTICHANNEL TAPE RECORDER

Producers have long gravitated to the warm analog sound, solid low-end, and musical presence of the Studer A800. With LUNA, use the Studer A800 as a LUNA Extension, and get tape character on every audio and instrument track, easily tweaking settings across all channels. As you build up your mix, you'll hear the cumulative "cohesiveness" of mixing from magnetic tape. Plus, you can add analog complexity by mix-and-matching up to four tape machines, using different tape formulas and per-track controls.

AMPEX ATR-102 MASTERING TAPE RECORDER

The perfect complement to the workhorse Studer A800, the ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder adds the final "analog polish" to your mixes. Since its inception, this legendary tape machine has turned recordings into records with its low-end punch and musical tape saturation. Using the ATR-102 as a LUNA Extension, get instant album-ready Ampex tape tones on LUNA's master fader and buses with all the authentic dynamics, tone, and saturation characteristics of the original analog hardware.
