Universal Audio Apollo x4 Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface

12x18 desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio recording interface Featuring Universal Audio's renowned Realtime UAD-2 QUAD Core processing and four Unison mic preamps - includes the Reatime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle
MFR# APX4

Product Description

The Universal Audio Apollo x4 is a cutting-edge Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with four pristine 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 x4 is the ultimate recording and mixing solution for small to mid-sized studios.

FOUR UNISON PREAMPS

Capture the sound of your favorite analog consoles with Apollo x4’s four Unison-enabled mic preamps. From the subtle warmth of analog tubes to the punchy sound of transistors, the Apollo x4 lets you 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.

EASILY EXPANDABLE I/O

Equipped with the same elite-class A/D and D/A conversion as the renowned Apollo X rack-mount interfaces, the Apollo x4 delivers an astounding 127 dB dynamic range. With four mic pres, two front-panel hi-z inputs, two headphone outs and a built-in talkback section, Apollo x4 is perfect for multi-mic or even multi-instrumental recordings. For mixing sessions, Apollo x4 offers two dedicated monitor outputs, four line outputs and onboard monitor controls.

Expand your I/O even further with the built-in optical ADAT/SPDIF input and output for an impressive 12 x 18 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 x4 as a desktop monitor control with additional I/O and DSP power.

  • Desktop 12 x 18 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface for Mac and Windows
  • Elite-class A/D and D/A conversion derived from the Apollo X rackmount interfaces

Definitely a step up from the original silver Apollo duo. Worth the money for the upgraded converters, monitoring, etc.

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.

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.

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.

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.
