Description

NEXT-GENERATION DESKTOP RECORD-MAKING MACHINE — FOR MAC AND WINDOWS

The Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII is a ground-up redesign of the world’s most popular professional desktop recording interface — delivering enhanced audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows features available onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing, Unison technology, and the next-generation A/D and D/A conversion you’ve heard on hundreds of hit records.

NEXT-GENERATION APOLLO A/D AND D/A CONVERSION

Apollo Twin MkII improves upon the original Apollo Twin’s gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned A/D and D/A conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD. This next-generation conversion results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in recordings — as heard on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Brad Paisley, and more.

UNISON MIC PREAMP EMULATION TECHNOLOGY FOR NEVE, API, MANLEY, UA & MORE

A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin MkII’s Unison technology gives you the genuine tone of the world’s most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps — including Neve, API, Manley, and UA — complete with their signature impedance, gain stage "sweet spots", and component-level circuit behaviors.

Based on Apollo Twin MkII’s unrivaled hardware-software integration, Unison lets you record at near-zero latency through preamp emulations like the included UA 610-B Tube Preamp, for authentic analog sound unmatched by other interfaces. Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin MkII’s front panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for exclusive guitar and bass amp models from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, and more.

REALTIME UAD-2 PROCESSING — A STUDIO FULL OF ANALOG SOUNDS

Building upon the Apollo tradition, Apollo Twin MkII opens up a range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available UAD-2 DUO Core processing onboard, Apollo Twin lets you record through he full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins — at near-zero latency — including genuine analog emulations from Neve, Studer, Ampex, API, Lexicon, Manley, Fender, and more.

Right out of the box, the Apollo Twin MkII includes the "Realtime Analog Classics" suite of UAD plug-ins. Unlike competing interfaces, the Apollo Twin MkII powers UAD plug-ins inside all major DAWs for mixing and mastering (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64 format), greatly offloading the processing required from your host Mac or PC.

BUILT TO RECORD: IMPROVED MONITORING AND WORKFLOW

Apollo Twin MkII offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII’s scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE AND SCALABILITY WITH CONSOLE 2

Users of Apollo Twin MkII can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo 8, 8p, or 16 rack mount unit, you can use Apollo Twin as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.

  • Desktop 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows with next-generation 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion
