Why is the Apollo Twin so good?
The Apollo Twin brings impressive sound quality and UA plug-ins to the desktop, along with unusually versatile mic preamps! As with the larger Apollo and Apollo 16, this makes it possible not only to use UA plug-ins at mixdown, but to employ them in the monitor or record path with very low latency.
Which Apollo Twin is the best?
Out of all the larger Apollo Twin audio interfaces, I recommend the x8p. The fact that it features hexa-core DSP processing is great and worse comes to worst, you can always add an additional Universal Audio Satellite. Another thing you need to keep in mind is that these larger interfaces are rackmount, not desktop.
Why do UAD plugins sound better?
Universal Audio plugins are better because of the integration with Unison-enabled preamps. Now we’re getting into the main feature that makes Universal Audio unique. Most of their audio interfaces are equipped with Unison-enabled preamps which have single-handedly revolutionized the realm of analog modelling.
Is Apollo Twin a good preamp?
When it comes to sound quality the Apollo Twin is no slouch, with world-class 24-bit 192 kHz audio conversion on offer, digitally controlled analogue monitor outputs and fantastic quality mic/line preamps, plus front-panel instrument input (perfect for guitars) and a headphone output.
Is the UAD Apollo Twin worth it?
Universal Audio interfaces are worth it because they incorporate Thunderbolt technology. That being said, there are many audio interfaces on the market that now support Thunderbolt. Most of them are actually pretty affordable and only slightly more expensive than their outdated USB counterparts.
Is Apollo Twin a preamp?
Apollo Twin MkII features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, SSL, API, Manley, and Universal Audio. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input, and tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.
Which Apollo has the most DSP?
The new Apollo X interfaces offer more DSP grunt, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, even better audio specs and additional functionality, and to cap it off, UA have added a completely new model to the family.
How much DSP does Apollo x4 have?
This compact desktop unit connects to the host computer via Thunderbolt 3 (cable not included – grrr!), and features a UAD-2 Quad DSP chip capable of serving up a good number of simultaneous effects (the exact number depending on the effects in question, the sample rate, and so-on).
