About this deal

Re-designed AD/DA Converters - Having already contributed to a vast range of Grammy award-winning albums, the Apollo Twin X continues the Apollo interface's long legacy with its top-of-the-range audio conversion. Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition has all the benefits of the acclaimed Apollo Twin X, including elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, DUO Core realtime UAD plug-in processing, Unison-enabled mic preamps, and full LUNA Recording System integration. The Apollo Twin X Quad also includes Unison mic preamp, allowing the user to record through meticulous emulations of some of the most sought-after mic preamps from Helios, Neve, API, Manley and more. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). Whether it’s a plugin that models a vintage compressor or a floor modeller that recreates the warmth and sag of a tube amp, many of the old ways still reign supreme over modern music.

There’s also an optical connection, designed to allow you to expand further into the UA ecosystem should the need for more inputs arise. With its two Unison-equipped preamps, two line outs, and optical ADAT/SPDIF input — plus dedicated monitor remote controls and built-in Talkback mic — the 10 x 6 Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition gives you the I/O you need for professional tracks and mixes.LUNA Recording SystemAll Apollo X series interfaces work with all major DAWs, including Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, and more. The Apollo has some of the better preamps I've ever heard – lots of headroom, quiet at high-gains, and the converters are really sweet sounding.

All of this groundbreaking technology is elegantly encased, and connectivity is a breeze with USB 3.Plus, Apollo Twin X USB lets you tap into the entire UAD plug‑in library, giving you the proven hit‑making sounds of Ocean Way Studios, Capitol Chambers, and hundreds more. You can then choose which finance term you'd like to apply for, and change your deposit if you wish.

Whilst this has been improved upon, annoyingly there’s still no Thunderbolt cable included, which seems a little stingy considering the investment amount required. Shuddering at the thought of having to go through everything and sort the ones we can use from the ones that won’t go past a 14-day trial, we move it to the back of our mind for a later date and proceed onwards. With its gentle, program dependent optical compression and meticulously designed tube amplifier, the LA-2A is the go-to compressor for professional mixers around the world — especially for vocals. We were amongst the first dedicated companies to offer the type of cutting edge technology that now grace recording studios the world over, and 25 years on, we have.

premium, professional pluginsA hallmark feature of Apollo is its Realtime UAD Processing, letting you run the full library of UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. This particular model features two DSP chips that allow you to run award-winning UAD plug-ins with super-low latency and includes a selection of great plug-ins to start with. It's worth every penny, you can't believe how crystal clear the AD/DA converters are, they sound better than anything I've ever heard before in my life.
