UA Audio Interfaces are the world's most acclaimed professional recording interfaces for Mac and Windows - delivering enhanced audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. Built upon UA's 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo Twin X starts with two Unison[trade]-enabled mic preamps. Together with its included bundle of UAD analog emulation plug-ins - which you can track through in real time with UAD-2 DUO or QUAD Core processing - Apollo Twin X is born to make records.

Key Features:

  • Realtime UAD Processing monitor and track through vintage compressors, EQs,

  • tape machines, and guitar amp/pedal plug-ins with near-zero latency

Improved Monitoring and Built-In Talkback Mic
The new Apollo Twin X offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Twin with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes dedicated monitor remote controls and a built-in Talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin X's scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

Apollo Twin X offers up to 10 x 6 simultaneous input/output channels. Thanks to Apollo Expanded software, users of any Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interfaces can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows.
