Outstanding desktop interface

almeriastrings, 03.03.2014
The construction quality is first-class. Heavy build and extremely positive controls and connections. Audio quality and converters are also superb. I compared side-by-side with Apogee and RME, and these are at least as good in all respects. It is splitting hairs to say one is better than the other. They're all excellent. You can certainly rely on the Apollo to deliver exceptional results, however. If you sound bad - it is not the fault of the Apollo. I had no problems installing it on a 27" iMac with Mavericks. The Console software is very clear and easy to use (much less confusing than some), and obtaining incredibly low latencies is straightforward. The ability to use the new 'Unison' real time preamp models is very, very impressive. I compared the UA 610 preamp insert with my real (hardware) 610's and it was hard to hear much difference. The API channel strip is remarkable. Extra inputs are available via ADAT (I tested it with Apogee and Presonus Digimax units and it was fine with both). The monitor mute and headphone output is fine - though you will need to feed line outputs 3/4 to an external headphone amp to create a separate artist cue mix. Only one (very) minor negative. While there are line inputs, they are on the same sockets (dual XLR-TRS jack) as the mic level inputs, but you must use the TRS jacks.. so to change from mic to line you have to physically plug and unplug. It would have been nice to have separate jacks. Apart from that, this thing is almost perfect for a desktop interface. Well done Universal Audio!

Fantastic, with a couple of 'buts'...

01.06.2014
The quality of this item is simply outstanding. UAD plugins tend to be very highly regarded and the platform gives you access to authorised emulations of gear from the likes of Ampex, Neve and Lexicon.

The Twin Duo sounds brilliant, and the new Unison technology - which emulates preamps - is well worth investigating.

The rotary knob is very useful, and the display is logical and intuitive. And I like the fact that the UAD DSP is included in the interface - this means that you don't have to use both, let's say, a Babyface and a UAD Satellite.

I've taken off a star for two reasons:
1) There is no Thunderbolt cable included in the box, which just seems cheap. If you want to use the unit immediately after receiving it, make sure you have a Thunderbolt cable standing by.
2) With the DSP resources needed to run the latest UAD plugins (such as the Neve preamp), a Duo isn't going to get you particularly far, without freezing your tracks. A quad would have been much more useful - albeit I accept that this would have upped the price.

Overall - highly recommended - just make sure you have that Thunderbolt cable ready to go.
