The Universal Audio Apollo X8p Heritage Edition is a special edition of the Apollo X8p Thunderbolt 3 audio interface that includes a suite of 10 award-winning UAD plug-ins.

The Universal Audio Apollo X8p Heritage Edition delivers an astounding performance that rivals dedicated converters that are far more expensive. Thanks to its class-leading AD/DA conversion, Hexa Core DSP processing and Unison Preamp technology, the Apollo X8p represents the ideal front-end to a powerful recording system.

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




An Outstanding Thunderbolt Audio Interface



The Apollo X8p Heritage Edition boasts a total of 18x22 I/O including eight Unison-enabled Mic for recording through some of the best emulations available.

Class-leading 24-bit/192kHz digital audio converters and pristine analogue circuitry deliver outstanding sonic performance with 129dB of dynamic range and -118dB THD-+N. It results in a beautiful, clean, open and natural sound, true to the recorded source.




Unison Mic Preamps

With eight Unison mic preamps, musicians, engineers and producers can record through accurate mic preamp emulations of some fo the most sought-after preamps by Neve, API, Avalon, Helios, SSL or Universal Audio. 

Unison technology not only recreates the sound of the preamp emulated but also its input impedance, gain stage and component-level circuit behaviour for unmatched realism. With eight preamps, users can record larger projects as if they were using the real thing.




Realtime UAD HEXA Core Processing

UA’s flagship Hexa Core processing contains six DSP chips dedicated to power UAD’s collection of plug-ins. The Hexa Core system adds 50% more performance over previous Apollo interfaces. It means more plug-ins when users record and mix. 

Thoughtfully set after the converters, the Hexa Core DSP system allows users to track with UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. It’s like recording through some of the best hardware emulations by SSL, Manley, Avalon, Helios, API or Neve.




Mix in Surround and +24u Operation

The Apollo X series of audio interface includes support for surround monitoring up to 7.1. making it a natural choice for users working with video games, television and web.

Selectable +24dBu operation lets users with professional mixing consoles and pro audio equipment use their interface with no sacrifice in sound quality.




Build a Scalable Recording System over Thunderbolt

With two Thunderbolt 3 ports, it is possible to daisy-chain several interfaces together (up to four interfaces and six UAD Devices in total) to create a powerful system with up to 64 Analogue I/O. 

Existing users of Thunderbolt 1 and 2 interfaces can also connect through the use of an adapter (sold separately).




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.
