    Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII Thunderbolt Audio Interface Product Description

    The Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII is a ground-up redesign of the world's most popular professional desktop recording interface -- delivering enhanced audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. This 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows features available on-board UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, Unison(TM) technology, and the next-generation A/D and D/A conversion you've heard on hundreds of hit records.

    Windows Compatibility: Thunderbolt over USB-C

    For Windows 10 users, as of UAD v9.0.0, all UAD Thunderbolt devices are compatible with Windows 10 PCs that have built-in Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C. To connect your Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin MkII to a Windows PC, you'll need:
    - A USB-C port with built-in Thunderbolt 3.
    - A qualified Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter, which connects between the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port on the computer and the Thunderbolt-equipped Universal Audio product.

    Qualified Thunderbolt Adapters for Windows
    Universal Audio has tested and qualified the following Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapters for compatibility with Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt:
    - Startech Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter (Product ID: TBT3TBTADAP)
    - Kanex Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt Adapter (Product ID: K170-1051-BK6I)

    Note: The Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter (Product ID: MMEL2AM/A) has been found to be incompatible with certain Windows systems in Universal Audio's internal testing. As a result, Universal Audio does not recommend this adapter for Windows Thunderbolt systems. The Apple adapter is incompatible with hot-plugging the adapter into the computer's USB-C port. However, the adapter is compatible with hot-plugging the Thunderbolt cable into the adapter.

    Note that Apollo Twin MkII does not ship with a USB-C to Thunderbolt adapter, and Windows users may need to purchase an adapter to connect to this interface.

    For Mac users, the Apollo Twin MkII can be connected to your Mac's Thunderbolt 1 or Thunderbolt 2 port -- just add a Thunderbolt cable.


    Next-Generation Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion

    Apollo Twin MkII improves upon the original Apollo Twin's gold-standard audio qUAlity with completely redesigned A/D and D/A conversion -- giving you increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD. This next-generation conversion results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in recordings -- as heard on hit records by Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Brad Paisley, and more.

    Unison Mic Preamp Emulation Technology for Neve, API, Manley, UA & More

    A Universal Audio breakthrough, Apollo Twin MkII's Unison technology gives you the genuine tone of the world's most sought-after tube and transformer-based mic preamps -- including Neve,(R) API,(R) Manley,(R) and UA -- complete with their signature impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and component-level circuit behaviors.

    Based on Apollo Twin MkII's unrivaled hardware-software integration, Unison lets you record at near-zero latency through preamp emulations like the included UA 610-B Tube Preamp, for authentic analog sound unmatched by other interfaces. Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin MkII's front panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for exclusive guitar and bass amp models from Fender,(R) Marshall,(R) Ampeg,(R) and more.

    Realtime UAD-2 Processing -- a Studio Full of Analog Sounds

    Building upon the Apollo tradition, Apollo Twin MkII opens up a range of classic analog tones and color via its Realtime UAD Processing. Available with a choice of UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, or SOLO Core processing onboard, Apollo Twin lets you record through the full range of UAD Powered Plug-Ins -- at near-zero latency -- including genuine analog emulations from Neve, Studer, Ampex, API, Lexicon, Manley, Fender, and more.*

    Right out of the box, the Apollo Twin MkII includes the "Realtime Analog Classics" suite of UAD plug-ins -- the UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Raw Distortion, Softube Amp Rooms, legacy LA-2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and more -- so you have a rack full of bonafide audio classics already onboard.

    Unlike competing interfaces, the Apollo Twin MkII powers UAD plug-ins inside all major DAWs for mixing and mastering (VST, RTAS, AU, AAX 64 format), greatly offloading the processing required from your host Mac or PC.

    Available with UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, and SOLO Core Processing

    In addition to the popular UAD-2 SOLO and DUO Core models, Apollo Twin MkII is available in an ultra-powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core model, allowing more plug-in horsepower for running the most complex and convincing analog emulations on the market.

    Built to Record: Improved Monitoring and Workflow

    Apollo Twin MkII offers greatly improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin -- with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent and/or recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII's scalability, make it a standard for professional desktop recording.

    Professional Performance and Scalability with Console 2

    Users of Apollo Twin MkII 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 8, 8p, or 16 rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin as a desktop monitor control while still tapping its additional I/O and DSP power.

    - Desktop 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface for Mac and Windows with next-generation 24-bit/192 kHz audio conversion
    - Available UAD-2 QUAD, DUO, or SOLO Core Processing for tracking through vintage compressors, EQs, tape machines, mic preamps, and guitar amp plug-ins with near-zero latency*
