So good I bought it twice!

Declan Q., 07.06.2016
I upgraded from a Steinberg interface to a UA Apollo 8 last year and liked it so much that I bought a second one this year to make my studio a 16 channel.
The sound is second to none I think.
The converters are as good as I've heard (compared with RME and Apogee)
The user interface is so intelligent, straight forward and easy to use for non tech clever people.
The mixer console is amazing and let's you monitor and/or print all your channels, latency free through whichever of their awesome plugins you have.
The unison technology really works! You get 4 mic pre's that you can put through their channel strip plug-ins (the 2 UA 610s that come for free are great starting place) and you'll be pretty close to matching a hardware chain with an expensive mic pre and compressor.
I've A/B'd the unisons to the real thing (UA LA610) and they really have done a good job. Although I highly recommend adding the API channel strip as your unison and you'll be sorted for pre-gate-comp-eq - all in one plugin.
And they always have sales and give you vouchers so you shouldn't ever have to pay full price for the plug-ins.

Couldn't recommend anything from the Apollo range highly enough to anyone who is serious about recording.

I had bought him right now .... And top support

Michael6611, 28.12.2015
I use the Apollo in the homerecording area. First I had only the Apollo Twin Duo. Since I needed more inputs and no submixer wanted (noise sound losses) I had then a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 ordered, but a lot of new software installed, which is unclear (the uninstallation was synonymous, unfortunately, difficult on the Mac!).

With the combination Twin Duo and Apollo 8 I am very satisfied, since both can be cascaded absolutely absolutely over Thunderbolt, without having to configure something. Through the Twin I have now even three separate headphone outputs.
Both work seamlessly together as a single device.

In retrospect, the Apollo 8 would probably have been enough for me. If I had bought him immediately, I would have saved the Twin ...

The Apollo Plugin concept is ingenious and I have got some plugins on offers from UA even significantly cheaper, even if the plugins are already quite expensive. But you also get what is very reasonable for it.

Through the plug-in shop system one is sent tied to the company. Because they run only with UA hardware. Since the plug-in I purchased for the Twin but also on the Apollo 8 (and vice versa) I find the fair. You need to buy the plug-ins only once, even if you have several Apollo devices in the setup or which acquires.

Experience with Universal Audio:
A few days after receiving the Apollo 8 I got a mail from UA that my Apollo 8 had to be exchanged because of the serial number, since this model belongs to a batch with possible errors in the Unison module. I myself had not noticed any problems in the short time.
I got free shipping labels together with the exchange device (took about three weeks). Kindly, I got a voucher for the UA Shop over 50¤ and with the new registration of the exchange again a good bundle offer. Also by mail answered the English support within 48h (to the demand where the exchange device remains). So also with the support I am satisfied. Alone the three weeks waiting was perhaps suboptimal, but I could work with the first device without problem, until the exchange device came.

Some wishes for Universal Audio for the future:
- It would be a pure line-in model with 8 channels for keyborder like me, which does not use the Unison technology and amp models tend to be cheaper, so between the twin and the Apollo 8 as an intermediate starter model.
- detachable rack ears or as nice paneling of the ears with plastic pockets as with Focusrite, if you do not want to use a rack :-)

I find the Apollo 8 very good, therefore full score of me.

Delivery and handling via Thomann were always first class! Was after two days with me.
