New York, NY (January 31, 2014)—Universal Audio has introduced its Apollo Twin desktop interface. A 2×6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac, it provides 24/192 kHz audio conversion as well as onboard real-time UAD Solo or Duo processing.
Housed in an aluminum construction, with front panel headphone and instrument connections, Apollo Twin reportedly allows Mac users to record at near-zero latency. The unit includes two mic/line preamps, two line outputs; a front-panel Hi-Z instrument input and headphone output, two digitally controlled analog monitor outputs, and up to eight channels of additional digital input via optical connection.
Apollo Twin sees the debut of UA’s new Unison technology—digitally modeled tube and solid state mic preamps. The unit will also ship 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, plus Softube Amp Room Essentials, the all-new 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, and more.
Available in both Solo and Duo models (with either one or two Analog Devices SHARC processors, respectively), Apollo Twin is now shipping worldwide with estimated street prices of $699 (Solo) and $899 (Duo).
