    Universal Audio Apollo Twin USB Duo Audio Interface (Windows) Product Description

    Apollo Twin USB reinvents desktop recording by delivering legendary analog studio sound, feel, and flow to music creators everywhere. This 2x6 USB 3 audio interface for Windows-based machines (Windows 7 and 8) combines the impeccable 24/192 kHz audio conversion of Universal Audio's acclaimed Apollo series with onboard Realtime UAD Processing and Unison(TM) technology -- a breakthrough in classic mic preamp emulation.

    On-board Processing for UAD Plug-ins

    With its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing, Apollo Twin USB lets you record your music in real time (at near-zero latency) through the full range of UAD plug-ins -- from Neve, Studer, Manley, Marshall, Lexicon, API, and more* -- putting racks of vintage EQs, compressors, mic preamps, tape machines, reverbs, and guitar amps at your fingertips.

    Unison Mic Preamp Modeling

    Apollo Twin USB also features Unison(TM) technology, which allows its mic preamps and front-panel DIs to sound and behave like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes -- including their all-important impedance, gain stage "sweet spots," and circuit behaviors.

    Perfect I/O for Project Studios

    Apollo Twin USB's smart feature set includes two class-leading mic/line preamps, two analog line outputs, two digitally-controlled analog monitor outputs for full resolution at all listening levels, and up to eight additional channels of digital input via Optical connection. Its onboard UAD-2 DUO Core processing lets you use UAD plug-ins both during realtime tracking and for mixing within Pro Tools, Cubase, Live, and more.

    With its ergonomic desktop design, rugged aluminum construction, and front panel headphone and instrument connections, Apollo Twin USB has all the right tools, all in the right place.
