[NAMM] Universal Audio completes the Apollo Series
The Universal Audio family welcomes two new Twin desktop Thunderbolt audio interfaces for Mac and featuring the new Unison technology.
The Apollo Twin Solo and Duo are desktop 2x6 audio interfaces that connect to your Mac OS X 10.8 or 10.9 via Thunderbolt only. The devices feature 24-bit / 192kHz converters, two mic/line preamps, a front Hi-Z instrument input, two line outputs and two front headphone outputs. Two digitally-controlled analog monitoring outputs are also included and you can get up to 8 additional digital channels via the optical connection.
The Apollo Twin Solo and Duo benefit from the real time UAD processing (compressors, EQ, tape machines, guitar amp models…) and the brand new Unison technology opens a new world with microphone preamp modeling (including tube models).
This Unison technology, that debuts today with these two new Universal Audio Apollo Twin interfaces, allows for emulating iconic vintage preamps with the interface hardware mic preamps. This analog/digital system is the result of three year’s research, and allows for real time continuous bidirectional control between hardware and the UAD preamp models, by adjusting the impedance, sweet spots in the gain stages and the behavior of the mic preamps circuits of the Apollo prior to A/D conversion.
Universal Audio announces the imminent availability of these new audio interfaces, with US pricing of $699 for the Apollo Twin Solo (1 SHARC processor) and $899 for the Apollo Twin Duo (2 SHARC processors).
The brand adds that the Unison system will be available for the first generations of Apollo audio interfaces in Q1, 2014.
Full details about the Apollo Twin will be available later today at www.uaudio.com/twin.
