Music producers and mixing engineers are all to familiar with the powerhouse production capabilities of the Apollo series and the x8P raises the bar that much farther. Featuring elite 24-bit/192kHz A/D and D/A conversion technology, Universal Audio's proprietary HEXA core processing for flawless plug-in integration, and a full suite of legendary classic analog plug in emulations, the x8P is the perfect centerpiece to bring your project studio up into the professional realm.

Elite Conversion
With the Apollo x8P Thunderbolt Audio Interface, Universal Audio pairs their pristine AD/DA converters with analog circuitry to deliver that lush analog experience. The natural, open sound in the converters develops from the 129-dB dynamic range and unheard of signal to noise ratio of -118 dB. The result is an ultra pristine signal path that is ready for your experimentation.

50% More Processing Power
The Apollo x8P features HEXA Core Processing with six DSP chips to deliver 50% more processing power than previous Apollos! This real-time processing gives you the ability to use a wide variety of three-dimensional analog sounding plugins. Plus, with eight Unison Microphone preamps on board, you are able to meticulously recreate the sound of legendary sought after solid state and tube mic pre’s thanks to Unison Technologies ability to drill down to the component level circuit behaviors of the original hardware.

Real-time Analog Classics Plus
In order to take full advantage of Unison Technology, the Apollo x8P includes the Real-time Analog Classics Plus Plug in Bundle.
