Reliable, professional and comprehensive.

25.01.2016
I purchased this interface after a careful analysis of what the market can offer at this time, in order to insert it inside my mobile studio recording and mix, together with other levels of equipment "high-end". It therefore constitutes the "heart," as it is used both in the A / D conversion in the registration phase, which for the D / A conversion in the phase of the mix, connected to an adder. Overall I am very pleased with the product, especially for its technical specifications by highly professional equipment, and for the opportunity to use the UAD plug-ins; only downside is the build quality that makes it a little bit delicate, although, in "Apollo 16" version of the external components that can break are very few. Note positivissima are its converters, extremely quiet and precise, which makes them suitable for use limit such as classical music or recording of "foley". Even compared with other more famous brands, the leader in the market converters, compare favorably without problems. I have implemented the intelligent Thunderbolt interface natively, fast and reliable, besides being essential for recording and monitoring, to maintain low latency, even during the mix, if you use many of its plug-in UAD natives. My advice is to focus on this version, compared to the old version "firewire" now present only in the "Apollo 8 firewire", which could not bear the weight of sessions too "charged." The UAD plug-ins, in my opinion, are the standard at present. They play in a very realistic, natural and real, without destroying the sound on which you are working. Big downside is the cost of the latter, the core bundle distributed with the interface and useful but not enough to close a job, especially if you want to do some 'digital mastering. It must necessarily make an extra effort (of at least 600/700 EUR other, according to me) to be able to have an acceptable range, to the type and level characteristics, of these plugins, also because at the level of computing capacity, the version "quad" can open a good number of instances on its DSP plugin. Only flaws are the apparent fragility of the potentiometer / encoder monitor volume, on the front in a very projecting and mounted in a rather solid despite the appearance. It tends to have a bit 'of "the game" and it seems built in soft plastic. Also do not underestimate the lack of a monitoring section "on board" or headphone output with dedicated volume. In practice, if you use it around alone you must always were wearing a special amplifier. Would much rather there were, as well as in versions "Apollo 8"
