    Universal Audio will debut today at Musikmesse the new version of its Apollo audio interface which offers 16 channels of analogue I/O.

    The Apollo 16 is a FireWire/Thunderbolt (with optional card) 24-bit / 192kHz audio interface designed to work with Mac OS X and Windows 7 64-bit (with a compatible PCIe-to-FireWire adapter on PC).

    It provides 16 analogue inputs and outputs on DB-25 connectors and real time UAD-2 QUAD processing which allows for fast recording and mixing thanks to the UAD-Powered plug-ins. 4 Stereo Cue inputs are also present with assignable outputs, along with stereo AES/EBU inputs and XLR outputs dedicated to monitoring.

    Other features include the PT mode for integrating external analogue devices into Pro Tools or the Virtual I/O for real time processing of UAD virtual instruments from you DAW tracks.

    The Apollo 16 ships with the "Analog Classics" plug-ins (LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176N Limiting Amplifier and Pultec EQP-1A) and the Console Recall plug-in (VST, RTAS and AU) which allows for instant loading of the interface parameter from the DAW session.

    Last, the Apollo 16 audio interface is compatible with the UAD-2 DSP accelerator cards and it's possible to cascade two Apollo 16 via MADI and process up to 32 channels of I/O.
