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.

RMN.MEDIA.STUDIO, 30.01.2018
I used this audio interface on my home recording studio to create my own music.This audio interface have 4 mic preamp and 4 line input.It have nice control app on computer to setup device.You can use UA plugins direct during recording or after recording.I like his sound quality it's very awesome.I need little plugins in my project so I use duo device.If you have big project I advice you to buy quad device.If you need more info make search about that.
