        Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO 2x6 Thunderbolt Audio Interface:

        UA's Apollo Twin series takes the cake as being the most inspiring, powerful tool for the singer songwriter. Apart from UA's incredibly clean A/D conversion, They've packed the Twin with two stellar preamps, which feature Unison preamp technology, changing the gain stage and impedance to match the respective software plugin.

        The console app is a great way to add extremely low latency tracking in real time using any of UA's meticulously accurate modeled plugins.

        While two mic pres and 4 line outs won't be running any large studio, the ADAT expandibility option allows for easy additional interface linking, all of which can be managed and mixed through the console app.

        While the thought of running any of UA's 80+ plugins simultaneously in a single project may seem daunting to portable studio owners & project singe/songwriter types, the dual processors included in the Twin Duo take on the whole burden of running UAD plugins, allowing you to run your sessions with maximum processing.

        If you're looking for a portable and powerful interface, there's no better option to add plugin processing, versatile preamps, great sounding conversion, and quick customer support for something as great as under $1000.

        This is a really real hands on product review from Jake, here at Sam Ash Margate.

              Comments about Universal Audio Apollo Twin DUO 2x6 Thunderbolt Audio Interface:

              That was a lame title right?....

              I am a guitar player first and have NEVER been happy with my guitar sound until last night when I ran it through my studio monitors instead the headphones for the first time. I was blown away!! The comp/limiter and reverb sims are incredible. The signal routing flexibility is amazing.

              The math is simple. You can either pay thousands of dollars (maybe 10's of thousands) on high end gear and/or studio time OR you can buy the "expensive" little interface that literally does it all.
