Place the Universal Audio Apollo Twin X QUAD at the center of your studio, and it‰۪s guaranteed to turbocharge your productivity. The Twin X QUAD‰۪s performance rivals UA‰۪s rackmount Apollo X audio interfaces, but eschews extraneous features like 5.1 surround monitoring and +24dBu operation for a streamlined, desktop design that‰۪s tailor-made for project studios.åÊ
Track and mix with spot-on emulations of tried-and-true studio classics, thanks to UA‰۪s powerful QUAD Core processor. Experience top-shelf sound quality, by way of the Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s upgraded elite-class AD/DA conversion. Dual Unison preamps allow you to track through models of the industry‰۪s most legendary gear. The Apollo Twin X QUAD Heritage Edition comes with a premium suite of five award-winning plug-in titles, along with the Realtime Analog Classics bundle, arming you with accurate emulations of vintage analog hardware. Beyond that, you get sub-2ms latency and ample expandability, thanks to the Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s ultra-fast Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.åÊ
Finally, the Apollo Twin X QUAD boasts compatibility with UA‰۪s LUNA software, giving you a tightly integrated recording, editing, and mixing environment, with full software-based control over your interface‰۪s parameters, global console and tape emulations, and advanced real-time tracking. If there was ever a time to upgrade your Apollo Twin, now‰۪s the time!Capture the sound of legendary preamps with Unison technology
The Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s Unison preamp technology goes so far beyond traditional software modeling and emulations that it‰۪s really in a category all its own. In essence, Unison is a bidirectional communication between the Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s mic preamp and a Unison-capable plug-in, such as the included 610-B plug-in that re-creates the sound of UA‰۪s classic 610 tube preamp.
The plug-in actually adjusts the preamp circuit itself, including parameters such as impedance, analog gain structure, and much more. When you adjust the Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s preamp gain knob and physical controls, the plug-in adjusts the preamp‰۪s behavior to match the target preamp. So you‰۪re not simply filtering your audio to approximate the character of a famous preamp ‰ÛÓ your microphone is now interacting with the Apollo Twin X QUAD‰۪s input the same way it would behave with the ‰ÛÏmodeled‰ preamplifier.
UAD plug-ins astounded the recording world with their incredible ability to sound like analog processors, eliminating the need for large racks of gear in the studio. Unison preamp technology will do the same thing for your mic inputs, eliminating the need to collect and maintain expensive hardware preamps just for sonic variety.Tech Specs
