The Universal Audio Apollo Twin X QUAD is a desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with real-time UAD processing designed for high-resolution recording and mixing for musicians, producers, and audio engineers in mobile production rigs and project studios.

Delivering the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording with low distortion and an immense D/A dynamic range of 127 dB, this 10 x 6 interface combines versatile inputs and outputs, a hearty plug-in bundle, and powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core processing.

Designed to perform a central role in a modern studio, the Apollo Twin X QUAD offers elite-class conversion akin to the Apollo X rackmount interfaces plus an array of analog and digital I/O. The interface features two XLR-1/4" combo inputs and a 1/4" Hi-Z input, all with Unison integration for UAD emulations of classic analog preamps. Each analog input boasts a switchable low-cut filter, 48V phantom power, pad, polarity inversion, and stereo linking. Digital connectivity includes a TOSLINK optical input for easy connection to external preamps with ADAT or S/PDIF optical outputs.

The built-in QUAD Core processing allows you to monitor and record audio using classic analog emulations with near-zero latency. The included Realtime Analog Classics plug-in bundle empowers you with 14 plug-ins ranging from compressors and EQs to virtual guitar/bass amps and time-based processors. The included Console application provides control and recall of all interface and UAD plug-in settings including channel-strip presets, drag-and-drop functionality, and dynamically resizable windows. Core Audio and Windows drivers ensure compatibility with all major DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Live, and more.

The Apollo Twin X QUAD offers a comprehensive monitor section with talkback functionality and dedicated front-panel controls for Alt Speakers, Dim, and Mono functions, as well as input and output metering capabilities. In addition to the dedicated stereo monitor feed and front-panel headphone output, two 1/4" line outputs are available for connection to power amps or active monitors. A total of four Apollo interfaces and six total UAD-2 devices can be combined, allowing Thunderbolt users the ability to expand their I/O and DSP.

Features:

  • High-Speed Thunderbolt 3 Host Connection
  • QUAD Core Realtime UAD Processing
  • 2 x Unison-Enabled Mic Preamps
  • 1 x 1/4" Hi-Z Input and Optical Input
  • Monitor, Line, and Headphone Outputs
  • Onboard Monitoring and Talkback Control
  • Includes 14 UAD Plug-Ins
  • Mac and Windows Compatible
