Overview

Universal Audiohave a storied history, from founder Bill Putnam helping establish the early standard for mixers, to their current place at the forefront of technology and their collaborations with modern music legends. The Apollo interfaces straddle both these worlds, combining an incredible audio interface with UAD plugin processing. Designed using the finest analogue components and bleeding edge AD/DA conversion. You can be sure every detail of your recordings is captured beautifully, then when it comes to mix down you can call on exacting emulations of the most revered studio gear, from Urei to Pultec and Fairchild.

This latest generation of Thunderbolt 2 interfaces also features their revolutionary Unison technology, which matches properties of classic mic preamps before using proprietary DSP to offer the sound of famous studio desks while recording as well. Guitarists can get in on the action too with UAD's emulations of famous stomp boxes and the amps from Softube Amp Room Essentials.

 

Apollo 8p is a dramatic update to one of the world’s most popular professional audio interfaces, delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 16 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 interface features eight onboard Unison mic preamps — perfect for mobile rigs and tracking full bands. Built on genuine UA analog design and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 8p also features powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, letting you run UAD Powered Plug-Ins in real time. With sound that surpasses anything in its class, Apollo 8p rivals modular converters costing twice the price, in a sleek new package.

 

Apollo 8p comes equipped with eight Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track larger projects with colorful mic preamp sounds from Neve, API, and Universal Audio. An Apollo breakthrough, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps — including their impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors. The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 processing. Simply place a selected tube or solid state preamp plug-in on your desired mic input, and record in real time through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, or the Neve 1073 and API 212L.
