Universal Audio Apollo Twin MKII Duo Heritage

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.

Fantastic all in all !
Deplicant 11.01.2019
I'll try to make it short and useful but there is so much to say !

First of all the build quality is purely off the charts. If we except the slightly too stiff and clicky face buttons, the whole device is made of metal, the connections are extremely solid (the power socket even has a lock system to avoid accidental removal) and the main knob is just great.

The handling is great, connections are easy to access, the UAD control panel is very straight forward and switching between headphone/speaker is easy and fast. My only negative feeling is going towards the face buttons, honestly not very clear in their function, and some of them I just never really figured out what the hell they do.

Soundwise it is as good as it can possibly get, with zero noise whatsoever, and the analog sound processing clearing shows when recording/listening to voices or instruments such as guitars. In the case of purely electronic music, it will only really make a difference with analog synth, but the amount of connection might not be enough if you have several hardware synthesisers.

Overall a fabulous piece of gear.
