Universal Audio releases Apollo Solo and Apollo Solo USB

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released Apollo Solo — a reimagined line of portable desktop audio interfaces for Mac and Windows users, saying:

With class-leading audio conversion, dual Unison-enabled mic preamps, and Realtime UAD Processing, Apollo Solo is where world‑class recording starts.

Apollo Solo offers A/D and D/A conversion with Realtime UAD Solo Core processing, letting users track and mix with a full library of UAD Powered Plug‑Ins with near‑zero latency. Apollo Solo's Thunderbolt 3 connectivity gives both Mac and Windows users a powerful and portable bus‑powered desktop recording solution.

Apollo Solo includes Luna Recording System (macOS only), UA's music production application that gives Apollo owners a fast recording environment for music production, editing, and mixing.

Apollo Solo ($499) — Key Features:

  • Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3‑powered audio interface for Mac and Windows with class-leading 24‑bit/192 kHz audio conversion.
  • Unison mic preamp and guitar amp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Marshall, Fender, and more.
  • Realtime UAD Processing allows near‑zero latency tracking with classic UAD plug‑in effects, regardless of software buffer setting.
  • Includes studio compressors, EQs, reverbs, and guitar amp emulations, and more as part of "Realtime Analog Classics" bundle.
  • Headphone amplifier for loud, detailed, low‑noise monitoring.
  • Bus-powered connection to Mac and Windows Thunderbolt 3 computers for easy portability and reduced cable clutter.
  • Includes Luna Recording System — a fully-integrated recording application made for Apollo (Mac Thunderbolt only).

Apollo Solo USB brings UA's audio interface to the Windows USB platform. Featuring the same Apollo A/D and D/A conversion and onboard Realtime UAD plug‑in processing, Apollo Solo USB offers Windows compatibility via USB 3 (USB Type‑C connection), utilizing an external power supply.

Apollo Solo USB ($499) — Key Features:

  • Desktop 2x4 USB 3 audio interface for Windows 10 with 24‑bit/192 kHz audio conversion.
  • Unison mic preamp and guitar amp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Marshall, Fender, and more.
  • Realtime UAD Processing allows near‑zero latency tracking with classic UAD plug‑in effects, regardless of software buffer setting.
  • Includes studio compressors, EQs, reverbs, and guitar amp emulations, and more as part of "Realtime Analog Classics" bundle.
  • Headphone amplifier for loud, detailed, low‑noise monitoring.
