Pandora's Box
TelmoSerrano, 06.07.2018
I've come from an RME HDSP 9632 which I was very pleased with its low latency, general features, and I've used it for over 10 years. However, it was time to upgrade my Audio Interface and I've chosen this one.
Pros - General sound quality feels in somehow superior, but that might be biased for the present monitor positioning. The hardware is practical, the knob feels great and looks great as well. The UAD plugins are something else - really analogue feel!
Cons - A thing I noticed right away was by the time I opened some heavy projects, there was some "chocking" due to the buffer size. When projects got heavier, I pushed my old rme to a buffer size of 4096, however, in the Twin, the limit is set to 2048. Not a major issue, meaning I should make more use of the freeze tool. I also sensed the unit running hot in the first week I got it, (an extremely hot week with my studio reaching 30º Celsius). Luckily I have a small laptop cooler who did is work just fine, cooling the Apollo perfectly.

Conclusion: Get it! All it matters is Music, and this will be an important asset regarding your generals' sound quality. Feels great, sounds great, and the UAD plugins just seal the deal.

The best solution that provides both high-definition sound and mobility.
marconmusic, 26.03.2020
I am highly satisfied with this audio-interface that I have been using for the last couple of months.

What I use the audio-interface for:
- Recording of guitars, vocals and analog synthesizers.

Pros:
- For me it is perhaps the best solution that combines both high quality and mobility.
- I have done my research which is the best audio interface for me for quite long time, incl. reviewing and gathering expert opinions. I believe that the statement about its high-quality digital analog converters and pre-amps was 100% proved.
- I was very impressed with its "Hi-z" technology. The guitar recording I made was far different and really better from the standard pre-amp that other audio-interfaces I have worked with have.
- The connection USB 3.0 really minimizes latency to near zero.
- The price of the product includes free top plug-ins as a bonus that is really a great asset.

Cons:
- I cannot find any at this point.

Quality product, but UA's neglecting Windows users
Ohad, 19.05.2020
Got the USB version so that I don't run into compatability issues with Windows. and it does work seamlessly as soon as you plug it in.
First thing I noticed is that it's as if I got a new pair of speakers. got some bundled UAD plugins which behave and sound very differently than pure software plugins, as if they are more natural and a little less predicted.

The cons are - UA unfortunately dones't really seem to care that much about Windows users, fact is, the twin hasn't been updated like the TB MKII, which doesn't make a huge difference besides some extra control from the device on monitoring and a talk back built in. but of course, now there is LUNA which is only supported in TB and in Macs :/
the biggest con - it won't work on a Mac, and that sounds like a pure marketing decision and not like any technical issue.
So that gets me a little sour, but overall the twin is indeed sweet :)

Simply awesome!
Dreamscometrue, 06.03.2020
Probably the best usb audio interface in the market! Top quality plugins! There are lots of pros that I can speak about, just do your research. Overall, I am fully satisfied with what i have. if i had to name cons i would say it's a bit pricey, but on the other hand a piece of equipment like this can't be cheap.
