NAMM 2018Universal Audio announces Thunderbolt 3 Option Card for Apollo Audio Interfaces

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has announced the Thunderbolt 3 Option Card for Apollo rackmount interfaces. The card is compatible with Intel's new Thunderbolt 3 technology on the latest Mac and Windows computers.

"We're really excited to provide integrated Thunderbolt 3 connectivity across our Apollo rackmount product line, " says Universal Audio CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. "We've worked hand-in-hand with Intel to create rock-solid Thunderbolt 3 connectivity on Mac and Windows for Apollo that enables customers to get the most out of their audio workstation environment."

The user-installable Thunderbolt 3 Option Card includes two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and easily slides into the expansion bay of Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 MkII audio interfaces. Bus power is provided to all downstream Thunderbolt 3 peripherals, allowing music producers to connect devices in series with the Apollo interface — including additional Apollo or Arrow interfaces, UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt devices, hard drives, monitor displays, and more.

Thunderbolt 3 Option Card will begin shipping Spring 2018. Estimated street price to be determined.

Thunderbolt 3 Option Card — Key Features:

  • User-installable Thunderbolt 3 Option card for Apollo rackmount interfaces.
  • Two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports for daisy-chaining Apollos or peripherals.
  • Provides 15W bus power to downstream Thunderbolt peripherals.
  • Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth delivers up to 40 GBps for connecting hard drives, dual 4K monitors, and more.
  • Requires macOS Sierra/High Sierra or Windows 10 w/Anniversary (64-bit Edition).
