The Apollo QUAD is made by Universal Audio and has a built in UAD 2 QAUD DSP that let me run UAD 2 powered plug ins easily. It comes with the UAD 2 analog plug in bundle (classics) which really added a lot of value to this unit because that plug in bundle is something that I have been trying to get my hands on for a while now.


This unit is great for mixing, mastering and production studio quality songs from your home. But it does come with a high price tag on it. It is well worth the money though and I highly recommend purchasing this; it will allow you to get rid of a lot of gear you have in your studio now!


The UAD 2 Analog Classic Bundle that comes with it has some of the 1176LN/SE limiting amps which are some of the best limiting amps that I have ever works with. It comes with RealVerb, CS-1 plug ins and a long list of EQ’s, delays, compressors and harmonic enhancers. This bundle has just about everything that I needed and I have been waiting a long time to get my hands on this bundle. It made purchasing this interface well worth it.


Setting the Apollo Quad up was very easy, it took a little more time than I thought it would but maybe it was because I was so excited and could not wait to get started. All I had to do was plug in the Apollo and get my plug ins authorized and that was it. There are a total of 10 outputs on this unit and 4 XLR, 8 TRS inputs. This unit can be racked only taking 1 rack space. There are not MIDI ins and outs but it does have 4 really good mic preamps that are very warm and clean. I was just so pleased with this unit there is nothing that I would change about it. We use these every single day now and will continue to forever!
