Universal Audio Apollo Twin X QUAD Thunderbolt 3 Interface with LUNA Creator Bundle

10x16 desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio recording interface featuring elite-class AD/DA conversion, UAD-2 QUAD processing, and two Unison mic preamps plus the Realtime Analog Classics plug-in bundle and LUNA Creator Bundle

Product Description

The Universal Audio Apollo Twin X is a state-of-the-art Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with two pristine-sounding Unison-enabled preamps, elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, and QUAD Core real-time UAD signal processing. Bundled with the “Realtime Analog Classics” suite of UAD plug-ins, the Apollo Twin X gives you everything you need to produce, record and mix studio-quality productions.

TWO UNISON PREAMPS

Equipped with two Unison-enabled mic preamps, Apollo Twin X lets you capture the exact sonic characteristics of your favorite analog designs, right down to the tubes and transistors. Choose from a wide range of classic consoles, including emulations from Neve, Helios, API, Manley, UA and more. Best of all, Unison preamps let you record in real time with record at near-zero latency. You can even use the front-panel Hi-Z instrument input to capture super-accurate emulations of guitar and bass amps from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, and more.

FLEXIBLE I/O

Apollo Twin X uses the same elite-class A/D and D/A conversion as the renowned Apollo X rack-mount interfaces to deliver a striking 127 dB dynamic range. With two mic pres, a front-panel hi-z input, two line outs and a dedicated headphone output, Apollo Twin X is perfect for recording at home or on the go. And with onboard monitor controls and a built-in talkback section, Apollo Twin X has everything you need to take control of your session.

Expand your I/O even further with the built-in optical ADAT/SPDIF input for an impressive 10 x 6 configuration. Daisy-chain up to four Thunderbolt Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices for limitless possibilities. And if you decide to upgrade to an Apollo X rack-mount unit, you can use Apollo Twin X as a desktop monitor control with additional I/O and DSP power.

REALTIME UAD PROCESSING

Harness the power of Apollo Twin X’s UAD-2 QUAD Core processing to record with the full range of UAD Powered plug-ins, including classic modules from Neve, Studer, Helios, API, Lexicon, Manley, and more.



LUNA Creator Bundle

Exclusively for LUNA Recording System and Apollo interfaces, the LUNA Creator Bundle gives you genuine Neve analog summing, integrated Studer multitrack tape, and two of Universal Audio's groundbreaking LUNA Instruments — Moog Minimoog and Ravel grand piano — with huge savings.

  • Easily add width, depth, and character to your mixes with the first authentic emulation of Neve analog summing
  • Use the Studer A800 LUNA Extension to easily add tape warmth to your entire mix on a per-channel basis
  • Record classic, ultra-realistic and responsive Minimoog sounds and textures

NEVE SUMMING

Developed in partnership with AMS Neve exclusively for LUNA Recording System, the Neve Summing Extension emulates the entire summing circuit of an iconic Neve 80 series console — including its coveted 1272 bus amplifiers. Far beyond a simple “summing plug-in,” Neve Summing is an Extension built into LUNA's mixer, eliminating the need to manage multiple plug-in windows. — giving your LUNA mixes all the color of Neve's most cherished analog desk.

STUDER ANALOG TAPE

With LUNA Recording System, you can use the Studer A800 as a LUNA Extension, and easily get magnetic tape character on every audio and instrument track. The Studer A800 Multichannel Tape Recorder Extension lets you intuitively tweak settings across all channels. Going beyond any other tape plug-in, the Studer LUNA Extension is woven into the fabric of LUNA Recording System's mixer, giving Apollo interface users an analog inspired workflow with bona fide analog sonics to match.

RAVEL GRAND PIANO

A breathtaking emulation of a Steinway Model B grand piano based on UA's exclusive sampling, physical modeling, and new Ultra-Resonance technology, Ravel gives you all the sonic nuance of this studio classic. Captured at Ocean Way Studios, Ravel gives you an immaculately recorded studio piano that’s album-ready, with easy-to-use Tone, Dynamics, and Microphone controls, as well as an innovative Reverse feature for startlingly creative sounds and textures.

MOOG MINIMOOG

Developed in partnership with Moog Music, the Minimoog LUNA Instrument is an incredibly accurate and inspiring emulation of Bob Moog's pioneering synthesizer. By perfectly capturing every nuance of the classic Moog oscillators and ladder filters and harnessing discrete transistor VCA modeling, the Minimoog LUNA Instrument faithfully captures every detail and anomaly of this classic instrument used by everyone from Parliament-Funkadelic to Kraftwerk, Dr. Dre, and more.
