What we say:

At A Glance:

The Apollo x8 Heritage Edition from Universal Audio is an excellent rackmount audio interface. It features generous connectivity options, handy controls, a talkback function and a great bundle of UAD plugins. Apollo x8 also features powerful HEXA core processing on-board, which means you have six DSP chips that are capable of running your UAD plugins over a large session, and Universal Audio's LUNA Recording System brings analog tone to your recording process.

If you require a professional audio interface that offers multitrack recording with expandability, powerful DSP processing and hands on controls, this is the one for you!

Features We Love:

UAD Plug-ins

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 independently on each channel 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 four DSP processors also allow you run UAD plugins accross a full mix, making the Apollo X4 ideal for studio mixing, editing sound for film as well as professional mastering.

Connectivity and Controls

The Apollo x8 Heritage Edition features a wealth of connectivity. You’ll find four Unison-enabled mic preamps and two Hi-Z instrument inputs on board. There are also eight line inputs, two digitally-controlled monitor outputs and eight line outputs on the unit. There’s also room for expansion via ADAT and S/PDIF. This makes it ideal for tracking multiple microphones or instruments, monitoring in surround sound (up to 7.1!) and more!

Heritage Edition

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

LUNA Recording System included

LUNA is the new recording 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 analogue 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.
