Features We Love:
UAD Plug-ins are regarded as some of the best on the market by countless producers, mixers, recordists and mastering engineers. These bring the sound of classic hardware to your DAW. For example, the LA-2A and 1176 compressors, Marshall amplifiers and Neve channel-strips. All plug-ins are painstakingly modelled on the hardware, and run from the DSP in your Apollo.
Using the Console application, you can choose to monitor with plug-ins active but record your dry signal. Alternatively, you have the UAD Rec function which lets you ‘print’ the sounds into your DAW recording. This is great for taking advantage of UAD channel strip or Amp emulation plugins, giving you an authentic studio sound and saving DSP later in the mixing process.
The pair of DSP processors also allow you run multiple instances of the plugins inside your DAW, where you'll find they become an essential part of your mixing process.
The Heritage Edition Bundle includes UAD recreations of some of the most iconic studio equipment of all time. Including the Teletronix LA-2A Classic Leveler Collection and Pultec Passive EQ Collection. The LA-2A and Pultec EQ alone have been an essential part of countless classic records, but the bundle also includes the UA 1176 Classic Limiter Collection, UA 610 Tube Preamp & EQ Collection and Pure Plate Reverb, all of which are set to reinvent how you produce your music.
Connectivity and Controls
The Apollo Twin MKII Heritage Edition features two high quality Unison preamps, a single guitar/bass DI, four line outputs and a headphone output. You can also add eight more inputs by connecting a channel strip via ADAT. The controls feel great too, with a precise gain/volume knob and features like monitor mute, mono, low-cut, phase inversion and more. This thing thrives at the heart of a recording setup!
LUNA Recording System included
LUNA is the new recording DAW software on the block. Designed by Universal Audio themselves, it has some unique features. It makes it easy to record and monitor with UAD plugins and get that analog sound we all crave. You’ll find an excellent audio and midi recording/editing workflow on-board. It’s also very easy to dial in warm analogue sounds thanks to features like record and playback fx, tape slots and parallel bussing. LUNA is already packed with great features and comes free with the Apollo. You can also purchase a variety of extensions for it such as Neve Console Summing and the Minimoog instrument separately.
