About Apollo Twin

Nothing has made pro-level recording as accessible Apollo Twin audio interfaces. These desktop-style interfaces feature studio-grade preamps, converters and connections that rival gear that is much more expensive. They also have on-board DSP, which allows you to run award-winning UAD plug-ins with -2ms latency.

Apollo Twin comes in a variety of models, in order to suit the needs of every recording rig. The Apollo Twin X is the most current model available for thunderbolt-equipped Mac and Windows systems. Apollo Twin USB is designed specifically for USB only Windows systems.

Each Apollo Twin model comes with a different number of DSP chips on-board for running UAD plug-ins. Solo has a single DSP chip, Duo has two DSP chips, Quad has four and so on. You can monitor or record the sound of UAD plugins with the Console application. This means you can lock in the sound of classic pieces of hardware and commit them to the recording. Recording through UAD plug-ins is just like using the real hardware!

Why choose Apollo Twin

  • Professional grade interface in a compact format
  • Monitor and record UAD plugins with -2ms latency
  • Unbelievable hands-on controls

Frequently Asked Questions about Apollo Twin

Question: How many plugins can the Apollo Twin run?
There’s no fixed number. It all depends on the amount of DSP a plug-in takes to run, and how much processing power the model of Apollo Twin has. The Quad has twice as much processing power as the Duo, for example. Usually the more complex the plug-in, the more DSP it uses. For example, a reverb plug-in such as the Lexicon 224 will use more DSP than the Teletronix LA-2A compressor.
Question: Does the Apollo Twin come with any plugins?
Apollo Twin comes with the Realtime Analog Classics bundle. This includes award-winning UAD plug-ins ranging from preamps to guitar amp modelling and reverbs.
Question: Which Apollo Twin should I buy?
This depends on your setup and DSP needs for running UAD plug-ins. If you are using a thunderbolt-equipped Mac or PC, the Apollo Twin X would be ideal. Then there is also the Apollo Twin USB, which is best suited for PCs with no thunderbolt connectivity. Solo, Duo and Quad all have the exact same spec, except that they each have different levels of DSP on-board. Solo has the least, and Quad has the most. So from there it all depends on how many UAD plug-ins you wish to run simultaneously.
