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!

Great portability with great sound!
Kerveros, 30.11.2019
I use it to record electric-acoustic guitars & bass. It's great portability allows you to record anywhere you like.

It sounds great. I have no complains so far. The standard/basic plugins included are really good. The really low latency is a fact. it's so small that's almost impossible to perceive any of it.

Pros

The portability is all about this interface.
the plugins are astonishing. never heard that good simulations before.
the amplifiers are almost spot on.
Great customer support.

Cons

Only one DSP which is very limiting for mixing but good enough for live tracking. Obviously this interface is not for mixing but you can extend your DSP later as I did. You can chain additional UAD interfaces.

You will spend more $$$ on plugins. It's almost certain you will.
