Good and expensive

Mio, 01.01.2016
First of all, this interface is sublime beyond any doubt. I am already a happy owner of a Silverface Apollos (predecessor series) and the quality of the converter has improved again.
The control elements (knobs, buttons) have been reworked and now appear somewhat more valuable, if not perfect.
This is without doubt without criticism at a high level, with a purchase price of more than 3000, - EUR may be allowed me but these please.

The installation is really simple, everything works right away, and the routing possibilities using the UAD software (version 8.4.1) are very good.
Complex monitorings can be easily and latency-free via the software. In addition, the software can be connected to the DAW via a plug-in so that different setups can be linked to different projects / songs.

Also the cascading with another Apollo interface via Thunderbolt is super easy. Only the Thunderbolt connection is necessary (audio, clock) and already in the software in- and outputs of both interfaces are available.

The preamplifiers can be individually selected and controlled by Knob or software. (If it has to go fast, it is a bit cumbersome).
Great is the link function with which two channels can be combined into pairs and let them regulate together. (Great for stereosets, AB, ORTF, etc.)

A few small weaknesses, however, I would like to mention: Because of the 8 preamplifiers you have to live with 2 outputs less (6 + 2 instead of 8 + 2).
Unfortunately, only 8 Adati in- / outputs are available at 44.1 or 48 kHz.
There is no reamping output, which is actually not a weakness, but with the concurence of Apogee and Antelope was thought of.

All in all, I am very satisfied and would buy the interface again at any time.
