The Apollo Twin X QUAD Heritage Edition is a special edition of Universal Audio’s Desktop 10 x 6 Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface with Realtime UAD QUAD Core Processing and two Unison Mic Preamps for Mac and Windows. The Heritage Edition comes with all the benefits of Apollo Twin X including elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, QUAD Core realtime UAD plug-processing, Unison-enabled mic preamps and full LUNA Recording System integration. Plus, it comes with a software suite of 5 award-winning UAD plug-in titles featuring Collections from Teletronix, Pultec and UA. Realtime UAD Processing allows you to run the full library of UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. These premium Heritage Edition titles are in addition to Apollo Twin X’s included “Realtime Analog Classics” bundle, giving you the most accurate library of classic analog emulations of any pro audio interface.
The Heritage Edition of Apollo Twin X also features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, SSL, Avalon, Helios and Universal Audio. A Universal Audio exclusive, Unison is a proprietary hardware-software integration that nails the tone of these popular tube and solid-state mic pres. Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin X’s front-panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for guitar and bass amp models from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg and more.
Apollo Twin X works with all major DAWs, including LogicPro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools and more, but it becomes a fully integrated recording system with LUNA, a powerful recording application for Mac from Universal Audio. Bolstered by Accelerated Realtime Monitoring, LUNA lets you track and mix in an intuitive single-window workflow with unlimited track counts. With its two Unison-equipped preamps, two line outs and optical ADAT/SPDIF input—plus dedicated monitor remote controls and built-in Talkback mic—the 10 x 6 Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition gives you the I/O you need for professional tracks and mixes.
Users of Apollo Twin MkII can combine up to four Thunderbolt Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices—adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with additional Apollo rackmount units, you can use Apollo MkII as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.
