The Universal Audio Apollo X: The Evolution of Apollo Recording Interfaces
Universal Audio is once again changing the game with the release of the new Apollo X series, as they have pushed their flagship interface farther forward and added more power than ever before. The Universal Audio Apollo x8p improves upon its predecessors with unparalleled processing, conversion and monitoring features.
The Apollo x8p is built for musicians, engineers and project studio owners enabling them to record and mix via a 16x22 (8x14 analog I/O) interface with eight Unison-enabled mic preamps and new HEXA Core processing. Universal Audio has increased the power with the Apollo X as the HEXA Core processing allows for 50% more DSP for running UAD plug-ins throughout your work.
Packaged in a sleek rack mount unit with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Mac and PC, the Apollo x8p improves conversion and monitoring. Universal Audio engineers have updated their converters for more pristine recordings and now offer up to 7.1 surround sound monitoring, an integrated monitor controller, and built-in talkback mic.
Improved Conversion For The Apollo x8p
Universal Audio has improved the Apollo interfaces conversion capabilities for the launch of the Apollo X line. The engineering team at Universal Audio paired together 24-bit/192 kHz converters with new analog circuitry to offer Apollo x8p users open, natural sounds with 129 dB dynamic range and 128 dB THD+N.
Adding More Power To The Apollo x8p
The Apollo x8p 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 extensive UAD library and have a higher plug-in count when recording and mixing with the Apollo x8p.
Nailing The Tone With Unison Technology
Universal Audio’s Unison Technology melds together plug-ins and analog in a way they’ve never been paired before. The Apollo x8p features eight 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.
A Seamless Fit In Any Studio
Using Apollo interfaces in a professional recording studio has never been easier. The Apollo x8p features up to 7.1 surround monitoring for engineers, producers and musicians working in any type of studio setting. There is also a selectable +24 dBU option for working outside of the box and using the Apollo x8p in conjunction with recording consoles and analog outboard gear.
