Desktop 2 x 4 Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface w/ Realtime UAD-2 SOLO Processing for Mac and Windows

Shape your recordings into records with genuine UA conversion, classic mixing tools, and LUNA Recording System.
Featuring class-leading Universal Audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of built-in effects, Apollo Solo puts album-quality recording on your desktop. This 2 x 4 Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered audio interface for Mac and Windows includes a generous collection of UAD plug-ins to record vocals and instruments through, at near-zero latency - plus it offers full integration with Universal Audio's groundbreaking new LUNA Recording System.

Unison[trade] Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations
Apollo Solo's Unison technology gives you the tone, touch and "feel" of the world's most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps and guitar amps. It includes the UA 610-B Tube Preamp, Marshall[reg] Plexi Classic Amplifier, and Ampeg SVT-VR Classic Bass Amp plug-ins - and can be expanded with exclusive titles from Neve,[reg] Avalon,[reg] SSL,[reg] Fender,[reg] and more. The secret is a unique hardware-software integration, which adjusts the impedance of Apollo's instrument and mic preamps to match the emulated hardware - for authentic analog sound unmatched by other recording interfaces.

Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for Recording with Near-Zero Latency
Derived from Universal Audio's award-winning Apollo interfaces, Apollo Solo opens up a range of classic analog color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Featuring an onboard UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, Apollo Solo lets you monitor and record through the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins - at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer setting. It's like having a virtual analog studio that fits in a laptop bag.

LUNA Recording System with Accelerated Realtime Monitoring
Apollo Solo works with all major DAWs, including Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools and more. But it becomes a fully integrated recording system with LUNA, a powerful free recording application for Mac from Universal Audio. Bolstered by Accelerated Realtime Monitoring,[trade] LUNA lets you track and mix in an intuitive single-window workflow with unlimited track counts, full AU support, and access to a suite of exclusive LUNA Instruments and Extensions.
From integrated Studer multitrack tape and built-in Neve Summing, to instruments from Moog and more, LUNA transforms Apollo Solo into an incredibly inspiring music creation platform.
