Elite-Class A/D and D/A Conversion

With thousands of hit songs and hundreds of Grammy-winningalbums under their belt, Apollo interfaces are no strangers to trackingstellar-sounding records. To improve on the previous generation Apollointerfaces’ class-leading audio conversion, UA engineers obsessively auditionedthe latest A/D and D/A converters — ultimately pairing elite-class 24-bit/192kHz converters with all-new analog circuitry for an ultra-pristine signal path.

 

The Apollo X series also introduces new Dual-Crystalclocking — featuring dedicated crystals for 44.1/88.2/176.4k and 48/96/192ksample rates — resulting in stunningly low jitter, measured at less than 10picoseconds. This translates into pure, artifact-free recordings and solidstereo imaging you can trust.

 

With 129 dB dynamic range and -119 dB THD+N, Apollo x8p’sopen, natural sound rivals any dedicated high-end converter on the market —regardless of price — and is the perfect starting point for applying UADprocessing.

Realtime UAD HEXA Core Processing

Apollo x8p features new HEXA Core processing, with six DSPchips and 50% more UAD plug-in processing power than previous Apollos. Thislets you run more UAD plug-ins, whether you’re tracking in real time withchannel strips from Neve, Manley, or API, or running high UAD plug-in countswhen mixing in your DAW.

 

From the tube warmth of Pultec EQs on guitars to the musicaltube limiting of the LA-2A on vocals, or the pump of a genuine 1176 orFairchild 670 tube compressor on drums, your recordings will take a giant leapforward with a rich, three-dimensional analog sound that UAD plugins provide.

Unison Technology: The Genuine Sound of Neve, API &Manley Preamps

Perfect for engineers, producers, and project studio owners,Apollo x8p features eight Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track largeprojects through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Helios,SSL, and Universal Audio. A Universal Audio exclusive, Unison technology nailsthe tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including theirinput impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuitbehaviors of the original hardware.

 

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integrationbetween Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard HEXA Core DSP Acceleration. Simplyplace a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, andit physically reconfigures the Apollo interface's impedance — so you can tapinto the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

 

A Full Suite of Classic
