The best solution that provides both high-definition sound and mobility.

I am highly satisfied with this audio-interface that I have been using for the last couple of months.

What I use the audio-interface for:
- Recording of guitars, vocals and analog synthesizers.

- For me it is perhaps the best solution that combines both high quality and mobility.
- I have done my research which is the best audio interface for me for quite long time, incl. reviewing and gathering expert opinions. I believe that the statement about its high-quality digital analog converters and pre-amps was 100% proved.
- I was very impressed with its "Hi-z" technology. The guitar recording I made was far different and really better from the standard pre-amp that other audio-interfaces I have worked with have.
- The connection USB 3.0 really minimizes latency to near zero.
- The price of the product includes free top plug-ins as a bonus that is really a great asset.

- I cannot find any at this point.

I've come from an RME HDSP 9632 which I was very pleased with its low latency, general features, and I've used it for over 10 years. However, it was time to upgrade my Audio Interface and I've chosen this one.
Pros - General sound quality feels in somehow superior, but that might be biased for the present monitor positioning. The hardware is practical, the knob feels great and looks great as well. The UAD plugins are something else - really analogue feel!
Cons - A thing I noticed right away was by the time I opened some heavy projects, there was some "chocking" due to the buffer size. When projects got heavier, I pushed my old rme to a buffer size of 4096, however, in the Twin, the limit is set to 2048. Not a major issue, meaning I should make more use of the freeze tool. I also sensed the unit running hot in the first week I got it, (an extremely hot week with my studio reaching 30º Celsius). Luckily I have a small laptop cooler who did is work just fine, cooling the Apollo perfectly.

Conclusion: Get it! All it matters is Music, and this will be an important asset regarding your generals' sound quality. Feels great, sounds great, and the UAD plugins just seal the deal.

Yes, what can I write here, everyone already knows everything about this card. I haven't received it yet, but it's great and that's a fact. I just want to participate in the competition, I don't have my own experience of using it yet, as soon as I get there and start using it, I will be able to do something intelligible


It is as good as I expected

It is just the best interface I could wish for!
