The Universal Audio Apollo Quad Core high-resolution computer audio interface delivers the quality and flow of analog recording plus, with the included Thunderbolt card, Sam Ash's lowest price guarantee & immediate, free shipping, it's even faster!

The UA Audio Apollo Quad Core 18 x 24 FireWire/Thunderbolt- equipped interface combines genuine UA analog design with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz sound quality and onboard Realtime UAD Processing with a sleek, elegant workflow on both Mac and PC.

Class-Leading 24-bit/192 kHz Sound Quality
Apollo’s premium mic preamps, top-end converters translate into greater accuracy and depth in your recordings, from tracking and overdubbing, to mixing and mastering. While Apollo’s “natural” sound is exceedingly open and transparent, it can quickly deliver a wide range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. This onboard DSP Acceleration allows for recording and mixing through UAD Powered Plug-Ins so  producers can quickly monitor, audition, and “print” audio using classic analog emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more, with as low as sub-2ms latency, . With Realtime UAD processing, Apollo’s sonic options are virtually endless.

Thunderbolt™ I/O: The Next Generation of Connectivity
Apollo offers compatibility with Intel’s new Thunderbolt technology, as found on the newest iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, and next-generation PCs. With the included dual-port Thunderbolt I/O Card, you get lower latency, reduced audio buffer size, improved performance, and greater UAD plug-in instances versus FireWire.

Deeper Integration with Pro Tools, Logic, DP, Cubase and more
Apollo’s Core Audio and ASIO drivers ensure compatibility with all major DAWs, including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, DP, Cubase, Live, and more.  Console Recall plug-in (VST/AU/RTAS) provide control and recall of all interface and UAD plug-in settings within individual DAW sessions, even months and years later.

Elegant Hardware Design and Workflow
There are physical front-panel controls for all the most commonly used features, including Preamp and Monitor level knobs, channel selection, mic pad and low cut, phantom power, and even dual headphone outs with independent level control. Smart Hi-Z inputs on the front panel detect when you've connected your guitar or bass, and automatically enable hardware and software monitoring.
