It just makes the job way easier
dsarabando 07.12.2021
Never in my life have my recordings and song arrangements sound so good at the recording stage

The quality of the apollo unison pre-amps and emulations and also the UAD plugins make arranging songs much easier. In the past I would probably have to record a hundred different instrument parts in order to have an interesting layer of sound, now only one part has enough character to support the song on its own.

The interface is really well built and it's really easy to operate. The console control in the computer can seem daunting at first, but once you get around to it, there's nothing difficult there.

Be careful if you spend a lot of time mixing and moving around because the UAD plugins need the interface DSP chips to work.

All in all, moving to the UAD ecosystem can have its pros and cons (such as the aforementioned dependency on the DSP chips) but since I moved to it my mixes, arrangements and songs sound streets ahead better.

Amazing interface for every use
tomcaliber8 27.11.2019
As an Apollo owner, the installation process was pretty simple and immediately I got it running with new plugins I got. The system is convenient, smooth buttons movement and the hard steel case is both good for ventilation and protection.
I'm using it for many types of projects and as a home studio owner, it gets the job done. Quite pity it doesn't have more outputs for surround control.
Can hold many UAD plugins with no sweat

Can't fault any of it, only thing missing is more inputs and outputs, but at this price it can't be beaten!

Need professional recording? Consider nothing else.
TomLewis 14.07.2022
I was torn between this unit & a few other alternatives. After considering all the options I decided on this unit. I was not disappointed. The quality of the converters, the DSP & the ability to use this as a monitor switcher (using the LINE out ports) has made this THE interface to use. Very happy.
