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.

As you build up your mix, you'll hear the cumulative "cohesiveness" of mixing from magnetic tape.
