Apollo Quad Firewire four years of usage
Raydovski, 22.03.2019
This is the best audio interface for all professional studio and home based DAW usage, that I came across after 20 years of trying many other brands and products. Comparing price and quality ratios, this is unbeatable. I am studio engineer and session guitarist, I use it for recording and mixing. I am recording drums, vocals and guitars primary. I record guitars with external amps with microphones and I use a lot the built in UAD amp simulators - they are the best ! For mixing I use it for "In the Box" mixing or with external summing mixer and in both cases, it is great. The only minus is that for this application it can't be used for parallel style of mixing because the signals are not coherent due to phase differences. But this is acceptable. Built as a tank and no problems with drivers or whatsoever. This is great product and reserves it's money!

the total studio upgrade card !
Eric291, 27.07.2013
So much more then a top sounding soundcard ,lots of connections , Top quality build, best plugins (a bit expensive but UAD makes regularry offers ) , work on W7 pc very stable .. the only thing is that the volumeknob (on the hardware) have to big steps, so for fine volume adjustments you need control this with the softwarefader from the daw or from the UAD Console, the console (mixer software ) is great after the latest upgrade they did , no latency monitoring when recording (including many UAD effects like manley eq, pultex, neve , lexicon , great channel strips ..) , best upgrade for the studio i ever made.
Highly Recommended

great audio interface
12.05.2016
I've bought it 2 years ago and use almost every day. it works very well, the sound is great, like the user interface. I record vocals, guitars, electronic drumset via 8 inputs. the only problem is the very expensive plugins))). so I'm using free plugins, which were onboard with the Apollo.
