Universal Audio releases Apollo Twin X and Apollo X4 Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interfaces

Universal Audio has released the Apollo Twin X and Apollo X4 Thunderbolt 3 audio interfaces featuring elite-class A/D and D/A conversion inherited directly from the Apollo X rackmount interfaces, and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Mac or Windows.

Apollo Twin X ($899-$1399).

Apollo Twin X is designed to be a potent sonic update to the popular desktop audio interface. Available in UAD Duo or QUAD Core formats for running UAD plug-ins in real time, this 10 x 6 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface provides sonic detail with 127 dB dynamic range.

Apollo Twin X also features dual Unison-enabled mic preamps and a front-panel Hi-Z instrument input. Unison technology gives Apollo Twin X users the impedance characteristics, gain stage "sweet spots", and unique circuit behaviors of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including authentic emulations from API, Neve, Fender, Manley, SSL, Helios, UA and more.

Apollo Twin X is built upon UA's 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship. With its dynamic range, Realtime UAD Processing, and an included bundle of popular UAD plug-ins, Apollo Twin X presents a fully-stocked analog studio, right on the desktop.

Key Features:

  • 10 x 6 Thunderbolt 3 desktop audio interface for Mac and Windows.
  • Elite-class A/D and D/A conversion inherited directly from acclaimed Apollo X rackmount interfaces.
  • 2 Unison mic preamps offer stunning models of classic tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amps.

  • Front-panel Unison-enabled Hi-Z instrument input and headphone output.
  • Built-in talkback mic for communication with studio talent and recording slate cues.
  • Improved monitor functionality including monitor remote functions and Mono, Mute, DIM, and ALT monitor controls.
  • Up to 8 channels of additional digital input via Optical ADAT or S/PDIF.

  • Runs UAD Powered Plug-Ins via VST, RTAS, and AAX 64 in all major DAWs.

Apollo X4 ($1799)

The Apollo X4 allows musicians and producers to track, overdub, and mix larger projects with Apollo X conversion. Built for musical collaboration, this 12 x 18 Thunderbolt 3 desktop interface features dual front-panel Hi-Z inputs and four mic preamps with 127 dB dynamic range, plus Realtime UAD Processing via built-in UAD-2 QUAD Core DSP — letting users track and mix with the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins with near-zero latency.

UAD's Unison technology gives Apollo x4 mic preamps the exact impedance characteristics, gain stage "sweet spots", and unique circuit behaviors of the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including genuine emulations from API, Neve, Manley, SSL, UA and more.

With its dynamic range, Realtime UAD Processing, and a host of included UAD plug-in titles via the Analog Classics Plus Bundle, Apollo x4 is designed to give users a fully-stocked analog studio right on their desktop, that's made to collaborate.
