NAMM 2017UA Apollo Twin MkII Desktop Audio Interface for Mac and Windows Systems Now Shipping

Universal Audio



Universal Audio has announced that Apollo Twin MkII, a ground-up redesign of their popular professional desktop recording interface for Mac and Windows, is now available in stores worldwide.

Featuring onboard Realtime UAD-2 SOLO, Duo, or all new QUAD processing, this portable, compact, and lightweight 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface improves upon the original Apollo Twin's audio quality with completely redesigned A/D and D/A next-generation conversion — offering increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD.

Apollo Twin MkII also features Unison technology, which allows its dual mic preamps and front-panel DI to sound and behave like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including their all-important impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and circuit behaviors.

Based on integration between Apollo's digitally controlled analog inputs and its onboard UAD processing, Unison lets Apollo Twin MkII owners track through a range of colorful preamp emulations from Neve, API, Fender, and more.*.

Apollo Twin MkII also offers improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent, or for recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII's scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

Apollo Twin MkII comes with Universal Audio's Realtime Analog Classics UAD plug-in bundle, featuring legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, as well as the 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-in, and Softube Amp Room Essentials.

Apollo Twin MkII Audio Interface –– Key Features:

  • Desktop 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows with next-generation 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion.
  • Available UAD-2 QUAD, Duo, or SOLO Core Processing for tracking through vintage compressors, EQs, tape machines, mic preamps, and guitar amp plug-ins with near-zero latency*.

  • Built-in talkback mic for communication with studio talent and recording slate cues.
