Manufacturer's ID: APLTWDII

Apollo Twin MkII is a ground-up redesign of the world’s most popular professional desktop recording interface — delivering enhanced audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows features available onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, Unison™ technology, and the next-generation A/D and D/A conversion you’ve heard on hundreds of hit records.

Specification

Looking for the sound of classic tube and solid-state preamps in the box?

Only Apollo interfaces with Unison™ technology let you harness the tone of legendary hardware in real time. Until September 30th, register your Apollo Twin MKII Duo and get:

  • Century Tube Channel Strip
  • UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection
  • Pure Plate Reverb

Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
Apollo Twin MkII improves upon the original Apollo Twin’s gold standard audio quality with completely redesigned A/D and D/A conversion giving you increased dynamic range and ultra low THD. This next generation conversion results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in recordings as heard on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Brad Paisley, and more

Unison™ Mic Preamp Emulation Technology for Neve, API, Manley, UA & More
A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin MkII’s Unison technology gives you the genuine tone of the world’s most sought after tube and transformer based mic preamps including Neve®, API®, Manley® and UA complete with their signature impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component level circuit behaviors.

Based on Apollo Twin MkII’s unrivalled hardware software integration, Unison lets you record at near zero latency through preamp emulations like the included UA 610B Tube Preamp, for authentic analog sound unmatched by other interfaces. Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin MkII’s front panel HiZ instrument input, providing dead on impedance and gain matching for exclusive guitar and bass amp models from Fender®, Marshall®, Ampeg® and more

Realtime UAD Processing a Studio Full of Analog SoundsBuilding upon the Apollo tradition, Apollo Twin MkII opens up a range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with a choice of UAD 2 QUAD, DUO, or SOLO Core processing onboard, Apollo Twin MkII lets you record through the full range of UAD Powered Plug Ins at near zero latency including genuine analog emulations from Neve, Studer, Ampex, API, Lexicon, Manley, Fender and more.

Right out of the box, the Apollo Twin MkII includes the “Realtime Analog Classic s” suite of UAD plugins the UA 610 B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Marshall ® Plexi Classic Guitar Amp, Ampeg® SVT VR Classic Bass Amp, legacy LA 2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and more so you have a rack full of bonafide audio classics already onboard

Unlike competing interfaces, the Apollo Twin MkII powers UAD plug-ins inside all major DAWs for mixing and mastering (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64 format), greatly offloading the processing required from your host Mac or PC.

Available with UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, and SOLO Core Processing
In addition to the popular UAD-2 SOLO and DUO Core models, Apollo Twin MkII is available in an ultra-powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core model, allowing more plug-in horsepower for running the most complex and convincing analog emulations on the market.

Built to Record: Improved Monitoring and WorkflowApollo Twin MkII offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII’s scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

Professional Performance and Scalability with Console 2Users of Apollo Twin MkII can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo 8, 8p, or 16 rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.
