Universal Audio has unveiled a recording system at NAMM 2020, LUNA, which will be free for Mac-using Apollo and Arrow Thunderbolt interface owners.
LUNA takes UA’s Apollo audio interfaces to the next level, by equipping them with their very own recording system. The new recording system allows for deep integration with Apollo audio interfaces, enabling swift routing and recording via DSP UAD plugins with no “discernable latency” due to the new Accelerated Realtime Monitoring Feature.
UA is also breaking into the software instrument sector with the introduction of LUNA instruments. This includes Moog Minimoog (modelled off of Moog’s classic 1971 synthesiser), Ravel grand piano (based on Steinway’s Model B) and Shape (an expansive toolkit featuring a variety of vintage and modern instruments).
Additionally, LUNA includes integrated multitrack tape emulation with the Oxide Luna Extension, and built-in Neve summing with emulated audio summing circuitry from the Neve 80-Series from the 60s and 70s.
LUNA will be available in Spring 2020.
