The Universal Audio Apollo 8p delivers enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 16 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 interface features eight onboard Unison mic preamps — perfect for mobile rigs and tracking full bands.

Built on genuine UA analog design and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 8p also features powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, letting you run UAD Powered Plug-Ins in real time. With sound that surpasses anything in its class, Apollo 8p rivals modular converters costing twice the price, in a sleek new package.

At A Glance:
  • Next-generation Apollo A/D and D/A conversion for professional music production
  • 8 Unison-enabled mic preamps for tracking full bands through preamp emulations from Neve, API, and Universal Audio
  • Onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core DSP allows Realtime UAD Processing

  • Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD devices total over Thunderbolt (Mac)

  • World class UA analog design, superior components, and premium build quality
  • Includes “Realtime Analog Classics Plus” plug-in bundle

Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for Tracking, Mixing, and Mastering
Imagine having a classic analog studio, in single rack space. Apollo 8p lets you record through UAD Powered Plug-Ins — including vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines and more — at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer size. With award-winning UAD plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more, Apollo 8p serves up authentic analog tone and warmth.

The key to its analog sound is onboard UAD-2 QUAD DSP Processing, which powers the UAD plug-ins while reducing the strain on your host computer. Apollo 8p comes bundled with “Realtime Analog Classics Plus” suite of UAD plug-ins.

Eight Mic Preamps with Unison Technology
Apollo 8p comes equipped with eight Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track larger projects with colorful mic preamp sounds from Neve, API, and Universal Audio. An Apollo breakthrough, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic preamps — including their impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors.

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 processing. Simply place a selected tube or solid state preamp plug-in on your desired mic input, and record in real time through stunning emulations like the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp plug-in, or the Neve 1073 and API 212L.

Realtime Analog Classics Plus Bundle
With the Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle, you not only get legendary compressors such as the Fairchild 670 Legacy and EQs like the Pultec EQP-1A Legacy, but also stunning guitar and bass amp emulations from Softube, as well as UA’s landmark 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ plug-in.

A Sleek New App

With Apollo 8p’s Console 2.0 application — a complete re-imagining of Apollo’s original Console software — you can take advantage of over 25 new user-requested features such as Channel Strip presets, Drag & Drop functionality, dynamically resizable windows, and more.
