First, go on google and search it up on tons of problems with this product that users have raised and seeking help from the manufacturer. Before purchase, I thought the problems only exist on the Thunderbolt Mac version if use in Windows, while the USB version would be fully compatible with Windows. However, it is not fully compatible and when I contacted support from UAudio, they acknowledge the incompatibility and basically said fix it yourself, customer. While there are workarounds like installing third party drivers, etc, you gotta do it yourself and it does not fully work well compared to if the manufacturer themselves make it, if you know what I mean. Well, that is not all. This is just the icing on the top.

I have used this product for around 2 weeks and everyday different problems arose from it. Sometimes there is popping and chopping audio on the recordings from this product. Somedays it has popping, somedays it has distortions, somedays it has chops, in recordings through this product. It has a lot of flavors to say the least.

Thirdly, it does not have the feature to turn off direct monitoring of the inputs in the channels, you can only mute them. And if you mute them and if you want to record the inputs from the Monitoring output, there will be nothing since you muted it. There are use cases for this. Lets say you don't want to hear the direct monitoring of the inputs, and only want to hear the PC audio, while wanting to record the Monitoring output because you want the effects added to the main channel input or volume gains from AUX or Analog volume settings in your recordings. Well, since you muted it because you don't want to hear the direct monitoring, this use case is not supported. There are workarounds, but it is stupid for a product priced high as this.

If you want to hear a use that might run smoothly for this product, I guess it would be just the plug ins that you need to buy from their website UAudio. And maybe the Thunderbolt version on "Mac" might work more smoothly as people said on the net? Well I mean ain't products this price be able to work smoothly out of the box? Laughs.

Just want to add on lastly, even though their user manual for this product has 200 over pages, it does not explain what the volume settings of certain outputs do, figure out yourself laughs. Therefore I am getting so much distortion in my recordings I don't know if it is my Shure M58 mic issue or the volume settings tweaking that needs to be adjusted.


The purchase met my expectations

I'm from Russia. I ordered the parcel on May 26, received it on June 3. True, I had to pay for customs clearance and duty. I bought this audiointerface because I do custom arrangements and mix sound. With all this, I never stop learning the tricks of mixing sound for a minute. Before that I used the audiointerface Roland Quad Capture U-55. Compared to him, Apollo's sound seemed more honest and not as embellished as Roland's. Roland, compared to Apollo, sounds like a multimedia technique with obvious beauty. After the purchase, I immediately tried to mix the phonogram on Apollo, and as I think it turned out great, and I used the standard plug-ins from Apollo.


Amazing With No Latency

I've been using the 2i4 i felt the difference by just plug it in and using Cubase And The UAD Console is a Plus

Endlich ohne Probleme für den Windows Rechner
André.K 16.09.2020
Ich habe in den letzten Jahren des öfteren mit einem Auge Richtung Universal Audio geschielt, leider war da immer das Problem das ich einfach ein Windows Anhänger bin und viele Stimmen (online wie privat) sagten das das Apollo Twin USB3 auf vielen Rechnern Probleme macht und mir auch 770Euronen einfach auch ein wenig zu viel waren. Dann habe ich die Werbung für das Apollo Solo USB3 gesehen das gezielt mit "Nur für Windows" beworben wird. Genau mein Budget, genau mein Bild von Ästhetik, gekauft und was soll ich sagen... es ist ein richtiger "Upstep" zu allen Interfaces im 100 - 300 Euro Bereich die ich kenne und gehört habe. Meine Speaker und Kopfhörer klingen an den Ausgängen fast wie neue und bessere. Zum Mic Preamp kann ich nur sagen das er bereits blank ohne Unison Plugins mindestens so gut klingt wie mein vorheriges Setup bei dem ich einen analogen Vintage Mic Preamp zwischen Mikro und Interface hatte. Die Unison Plugins von zb. Neve treiben das ganze vermutlich noch auf die Spitze, was ich aber noch nicht getestet habe. Die 14 Plugins die kostenlos an Bord sind, sind zusätzlich eine nette Sache... vor allem der 1176, LA-2A und Pultec EQ klingen super sexy und machen Spass ohne Ende. Zum Ende noch ein Danke an Thomann die beim Versand wieder souveränste Arbeit geleistet haben.
