Apollo Twin X allows musicians and producers to easily track, overdub, and mix with elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, two Unison-enabled preamps, and available DUO or QUAD Core real-time UAD plug-in processing - all in a desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio interface for Mac and Windows. Built upon UA's 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo Twin X confidently outperforms everything in its class, with 127 dB D/A dynamic range and an included bundle of UAD analog emulation plug-ins, giving you a fully-stocked analog studio, right on your desktop.

Two Unison Preamps: Get the Genuine Sound of Neve, Helios, API, Manley, and More
Apollo Twin X features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, Helios, API, Manley, Universal Audio and many more. Exclusive to UA Audio Interfaces, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid-state mic pres - including their input impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware. The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo's mic preamps and its onboard UAD DUO or QUAD Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface's impedance - so you can tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

Elite-Class A/D and D/A Conversion
With thousands of hit songs and hundreds of Grammy-winning albums under their belt, Apollo interfaces are used to track exceptional-sounding records every day. To improve on the previous generation of desktop Apollo interfaces' class-leading audio conversion, UA engineers redesigned the Twin's audio conversion to deliver a striking 127 dB dynamic range and -117 dB THD+N, giving Apollo Twin X a spacious, organic sound that easily rivals dedicated high-end converters.

A Full Suite of Classic
Right out of the box, Apollo Twin X offers a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins including the world's only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ. Developed by UA's world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged. 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 Twin X lets you tap into the full library award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins - including vintage EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Tape Machines and more - at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software's buffer size and without taxing your computer's CPU.

With exclusive emulations from Neve, Lexicon, Capitol Studios, API, Manley, Ampex, Fender, and more, it's like having an endless analog studio, right on your desktop. And unlike competing interfaces, these DSP-powered plug-ins are also available in your DAW for mixing.

Record with Vintage Amps
Apollo Twin X also includes Unison technology on its front panel instrument input, giving you access to dead-on emulations of guitar and bass amps like the Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe, Marshall Plexi Super Lead 1959, and the Ampeg B-15N Bass Amplifier.

Additional Connections & Built-in Talkback
WIth its two onboard Unison-equipped preamps, two line outs, and optical ADAT/SPDIF input - plus dedicated monitor remote controls and a built-in Talkback mic - the 10 x 6 Apollo Twin X gives you the I/O you need for professional tracks and mixes.

Build a Networked Studio
Users of any Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo interface can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices - adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo x6, x8, x8p, or x16 rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin X as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.

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.

Professional quality, absolute game changer! My wife and I record together and this thing takes it to the next level. I record on a laptop so the ability to run plugins on the Apollo without using up processing power of my computer makes all the difference. The A/D conversion is stellar - this thing is awesome!

Always a great experience working with people who actually care about the investment your making. I had previously made a purchase with a competitor store and the only thing I got from the interaction was that the sales rep commission or whatever was more important than making sure I get the best for my dollar. Shopping with the SamAsh store on Cumberland pkwy actually saved me over $400 dollars just by taking time to actually listen to my concerns and right fit me to the best interface for my needs. I'm loving my new Apollo Twin and I appreciate you guys alot. Thanks
