Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII Duo Heritage
AHStudio, 02.02.2021
The clarity of preamps and the warmth of the sound is unbeatable to other thunderbolt audio/midi cards I've tried from all the companies who make them throughout my years in the business! So Universal Audio Apollo is a class by it self and highly recommended to all musicians, producers and composers out there!

Great sound, love the simplicity of the design
Rovo, 09.11.2020
After almost 15 years as a voiceover, going through audio interfaces from M-audio and Focusrite, i decided to make my Neumann shine. And this one really makes your gear sound better!
What I didn't really enjoyed (but is understandable with all the features) is the installation. Coming from much simpler interfaces, having to download, start, restart was a bit annoying. But after that, everything was pretty simple.
Another inconvenience is coming from the need of buying (pretty expensive) plugins. For example, I love the sound of Avalon VT 737 as a hardware and the pluging in the UA was pretty good. But having to pay 200+ Euro for this isn't the best experience. Also loved the Manley plugin (about the same price).
Overall, you get a great sounding interface, an Apple design, pretty easy to use and the possibility to have multiple famous hardware for a fraction of the price.

Simply Awesome !!
Emmanuel Cambier, 16.10.2019
This thing is so Cool it's a no brainer in this price range.

2 DSP is sufficient for tracking but for any serious mixing you really also need a satellite.

It's great as a monitor control if you already have rack mounted apollos.
