Apollo Solo is the world's finest Thunderbolt 3-powered desktop recording audio interface for Mac and Windows - delivering class leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD plug-ins for recording album quality results, in real time.

This compact 2x4 interface starts with esteemed Apollo A/D and D/A conversion to sonically outperform anything in its class. And with its Unison technology and built-in UAD-2 processing, you can record through classic studio tools including the UA 610-B Tube Preamp and EQ, LA-2A and 1176 compressors, and more - with near-zero latency.

Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations
Apollo Solo's Unison technology gives you the tone, touch, and "feel" of the world's most sought-after preamps. These include the bundled UA 610-B Tube Preamp, plus authentic mic preamp emulations from Neve and API, plus guitar amp emulations from Fender and Marshall - complete with their signature impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and component-level circuit behaviors.

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo Solo's mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 processing. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo's Console software, and it physically reconfigures Apollo's impedance and gain staging - giving you the classic tube and transformer sounds of the world's most recorded mic preamps and guitar amps.

Create with a Fast, Natural Workflow in LUNA
Apollo Solo is the ideal entry point to LUNA, UA's groundbreaking music production application. Whether you're exploring the analog sounds and workflow of Neve summing and Studer tape Extensions or creating with inspiring LUNA Instruments like Moog Minimoog and Ravel grand piano, LUNA transforms Apollo Solo into a fully-integrated recording system. Mac only.

A Full Suite of Classic Studio Processing Onboard
Right out of the box, Apollo Solo provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world's only authentic Teletronix LA-2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and much more. From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

Access the World of UAD Powered Plug-Ins
Beyond the included Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins, Apollo Solo lets you tap into the full library of award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins - including vintage EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Tape Machines, Auto-Tune and more - in real time. With exclusive emulations from Neve, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, Antares, Moog, and more, the creative possibilities are nearly endless.

Vintage Guitar and Bass Amps
For guitarists and bassists, Apollo Solo includes Unison technology on its front panel instrument input - giving you access to dead-on emulations of amps like the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe, Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier, and the included Marshall Plexi Classic - all available at near-zero latency for song writing and recording.

Best-in-Class Headphone Amplifier
Apollo Solo's onboard headphone output is louder and punchier, with lower noise and flatter frequency response versus any interface in its class. This means you can confidently track and mix using headphones, knowing you're hearing every sonic detail.

Ready to Go
With its robust all-metal construction and bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 operation, Apollo Solo is the only "clutter-free" portable audio interface that truly delivers album-quality results. It's like having a virtual analog studio that fits onto any desktop, and easily travels in your laptop bag.

Included Apollo Heritage Edition Plug-Ins
Featuring 5 premium UAD titles - including complete plug-in Collections of the award-winning Teletronix and UA 1176 compressors, Pultec EQs, UA 610 mic preamps, and more - Apollo Heritage Edition gives you a curated analog studio, right out of the box.

Used for personal recording of guitar, bass, keys, vocals, and wind instruments as well as live zoom lessons. This product does exactly what it advertised; no gimmicks. As simple as plug n play after registering the product. The plugins included are enough to get any serious musician started in their recording endeavors. The big deal for me was having an interface that could have effects real-time over zoom lessons without eating up precious computer RAM. As with most plugins, setting up with Logic X Pro is very simple too. Universal Audio has the highest standards in the industry for their plugins, so make sure you budget for buying additional plugins.
