The Universal Audio Apollo Twin X Quad Heritage Edition is a special edition of the Universal Audio Apollo Twin X Quad Thunderbolt 3 audio interface that includes a suite of 5 award-winning UAD plug-ins.

The Universal Audio Apollo Twin X Quad is a 10 x 6 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with world-class digital converters, real-time UAD-2 Quad Core Processing, and two Unison mic pres.

The Heritage Edition includes some of Universal Audio’s most popular plugin emulations including collections from Teletronix, Pultec and Universal Audio.

An Outstanding Thunderbolt Audio Interface

The Universal Audio Apollo Twin X features the latest AD/DA conversion technology and provides an astounding 127dB of dynamic range and -117dB THD+N. This translates in a spacious and organic sound that is not achieved by any other interface in its category and offers similar performance to dedicated high-end converters.

Unison Mic Preamps

The Apollo Twin X Quad also includes to Unison mic preamp, allowing the user to record through meticulous emulations of some of the most sought after mic preamps from the likes of Helios, Neve, API, Manley and more. Unison technology, not only recreates the tone of the emulated hardware but also the input impedance, gain stage and component-level circuit behaviour resulting in a new level of realism with virtually zero latency. 

The Apollo Twin X also boasts a Hi-Z instrument input for use with guitar or bass instruments, matching perfectly the impedance and gain of Universal Audio’s range of amplifier emulations.

UAD Processing

The Twin X Quad has four DSP processors providing plenty of DSP power to record and mix using the full suite of UAD plug-ins including approved emulations from Neve, Ampex, Helios, API, Lexion, Manley, Studer, Empirical Labs and many more.

Thoughtfully placed next to the converters, the DSP processors let users record through UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. It’s like recording through some of the best hardware.

Build a Scalable Recording System over Thunderbolt

Further to its two Unison mic pres and line outs, the Twin X interface features optical ADAT/SPDIF input to connect an external mic preamp and increase your number of inputs up to ten as well as a built-in talkback microphone. For larger recording requirements, the Apollo Twin X can be combined with up to three additional Thunderbolt Apollo audio interfaces and five total UAD-2 devices, giving incredible recording and mixing power. In such systems, the Apollo Twin X can be used as a monitor controller with additional DSP power.

A Complete Recording System with LUNA

Apollo interfaces are compatible with any DAW offering low-latency recording via their Console interface.

Used in combination with the LUNA Recording Software, the Apollo X series become a powerful and complete integrated recording system with the benefits of a flexible workstation and seamless integration of hardware and software.

LUNA’s Accelerated Real-time Monitoring allows users to record and mix with near-zero latency without leaving its convenient one window workflow with unlimited track counts. 

The free version of LUNA gives you everything you need to record and mix with your Apollo interface but additional extensions can be used to create even more powerful recording systems to provide in-the-box analogue tones with Tapes and Summing extensions as well as stunning virtual instruments.

LUNA is compatible with Audio Units ensuring compatibility with your existing plugins arsenal and virtual instruments.
