In 2020 Universal Audio introduced the Heritage Edition Series of their acclaimed audio interfaces. These versions include special plug-in bundles featuring 10 premium UAD titles. For those looking for UA's elite-class AD/DA conversion and UAD-2 processing power but without these additional plug-ins (and cost), Universal Audio has reintroduced their Apollo X interfaces in non-Heritage editions. Though these versions do not include Heritage Edition bundles, they still include the Realtime Analog Classics Plus software bundle, giving you everything you need to get up and running with UAD's renowned plug-ins! And, as always, if you need more, you can bundle all of that with 2, 3, 6, or 10 additional plug-ins, or with the LUNA Creator or Analog Essential bundles!
Universal Audio’s Apollo recording interface has enabled audio creators the world over to record and mix world-class compositions with greater ease than ever. The Apollo X is the next step in the impressive lineage of these interfaces and the Universal Audio Apollo x6 improves upon its predecessors with unparalleled conversion, processing and monitoring features.
Created with music producers and post-production facilities in mind, the Apollo x6 enables users to record, overdub and mix via a 16x22 (6x12 analog I/O) interface with two Unison-enabled mic preamps and new HEXA core processing. This improvement in processing power allows for 50% more DSP for running UAD plug-ins during each step of your creative process.
Packaged in a sleek rack mount unit with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Mac or PC, the Apollo x6 additionally offers improvements in conversion and monitoring. Once again, Universal Audio has updated their converters for more pristine recordings and now offers 5.1 surround sound monitoring, an integrated monitor controller and built-in talkback mic.
In the time since the release of the Apollo MKII interfaces, Universal Audio engineers have been hard at work on improving the conversion capabilities for the launch of the Apollo X line. Ultimately, the design team paired together 24-bit/192 kHz converters with new analog circuitry to offer Apollo x6 users pristine sounds with 129 dB dynamic range and 128 dB THD+N.
The Apollo x6 offers more power than ever before with HEXA Core processing that utilizes six DSP chips. With 50% more DSP than previous generations of the interface, you’ll be able to take advantage of Universal Audio’s incredible UAD library and have a higher plug-in count when recording and mixing with the Apollo x6.
Universal Audio’s Unison Technology melds together plug-ins and analog in a way they’ve never been paired before. The Apollo x6 features two Unison-enabled mic pres, which allow music makers to track through mic pre emulations that match the actual input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots” and circuit behaviors of the gear they are based on. With legendary mic pre emulations from API, Manley, Neve, SSL and Universal Audio at the ready, you can bring the exact tone of so many classic records to next your next project.
Using Apollo interfaces in a professional recording studio has never been easier. The Apollo x6 features 5.1 surround monitoring for creators working in the world of post-production, no matter whether it be for film, video games or television. There is also a selectable +24 dBU option for working outside of the box and using the Apollo x6 in conjunction with recording consoles and analog outboard gear.
Universal Audio has been one of the leaders in creating plug-in emulations of classic gear since they first re-founded in 1999. When purchasing the Apollo x6, you gain instant access to the brand’s Realtime Analog Classics Plus Bundle, which features 16 world-class plug-ins. You’ll get Universal Audio staples like the featuring UA 610-B Tube Preamp (Legacy), UA 1176LN Limiting Amplifier (Legacy), Pultec EQP-1A EQ (Legacy), Fairchild 670 Compressor (Legacy), Marshall Plexi Classic, Ampeg SVT-VR and so much more.
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.
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.
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.
