Arrow through the heart!
eamo1, 11.09.2018
This little interface is like a gateway drug into the world of Universal Audio plugin addiction. It only has 1 core of DSP which means you can use a few plugins at a time but nowhere near enough to mix and master a full track with just UAD plugins.

I'm not taking a star away for this though because you get what you pay for and for the price its exceptionally good. Im using a MSI gaming laptop with thunderbolt connectivity to power this little piece of magic. You can literally produce your own guitar sound and use it for a live set up with no audible latency or record wet direct into your DAW. Same with vocals or whatever else your doing.

Now that I've got this I'm looking to get an octo core satellite next to turbo boost my DSP. Very pricey but worth it as UAD have a lot of really good industry standard plugins.

If you can afford the Apollo with 4 cores of DSP I would recommend that as a starting point into UAD because once you invest in UAD your going to get hooked and theres no turning back from that point! Just be aware though, that like me you will need to get onto the harder stuff (octo satellite & a bunch of expensive plugins) and it will happen quicker then you think! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Good for the money. Dont expect to use many plugins, the dsp only handles few.
