Back in Black: New Apollo Black audio interfaces are here! Meet the Apollo 8, Apollo 8p and Apollo 16!

Universal Audio Apollo Audio Interfaces

Next-generation preamp modeling & A/D/D/A conversion

Since they were first released in 2012, Universal Audio's Apollo audio interfaces have quickly become a studio standard -- combining top-notch A/D and D/A conversion and Thunderbolt connectivity with UAD Powered plug-ins and Unison preamp modeling.

Now, Universal Audio raises the game with the next-generation Apollo series -- the Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 Thunderbolt interfaces and the Apollo FireWire interface. And with Universal Audio's November 2016 update, all Apollo rackmount interfaces are now compatible with both Mac OS X and Windows 10 (with a USB to Thunderbolt adapter on your Windows PC). Read on to learn more about the Apollo series!

New: Upgraded A/D & D/A conversion + more Unison mic preamps

Next-generation Apollo A/D and D/A conversion improves upon the original Apollos. UA Apollo interfaces are already known for their world-class 24-bit/192 kHz audio converters. The new Apollos take it up a notch with next-generation conversion!
Unison-enabled mic preamps let you record through classic preamp emulations from Neve, API, and Universal Audio. The "p" in Apollo 8p stands for "preamps" -- you get 8 ultra-transparent, digitally controlled Unison-enabled XLR mic preamplifiers onboard.

Apollo Expanded: Mix and match multiple units over Thunderbolt

Mix and match multiple units with Apollo Expanded. Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and a total of 6 UAD devices over Thunderbolt. Imagine chaining four Apollo 16s to build a monster 64-track studio. Just add Thunderbolt cables!
Already have an Apollo Twin interface? Cascade its I/O with one or more rackmount Apollo interfaces! The Twin becomes your desktop monitor controller, and you'll have access to the DSP and connectivity on all your Apollos.
Add a Universal Audio DSP accelerator. With the ability to connect up to 6 UAD devices over Thunderbolt, you can build a monster recording and mixing rig with DSP for days.

Get UAD Powered plug-ins -- and the DSP you need to run them!

Realtime Analog Classics Plus bundle included! The Apollo 8, 8p, 16 and FireWire models come with the 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Softube Amp Room, legacy LA-2A, 1176, and Fairchild compressors, Pultec EQs and more.
Customize your dream outboard gear collection "in the box." Choose from an ever-growing library of UAD Powered plugs from the likes of Lexicon, Studer, Manley, Ampex and more -- all available separately from Universal Audio's website.
Plenty of on-board DSP to run your plugs! Realtime UAD Processing lets you record, monitor and mix through Universal Audio's spot-on emulations of classic gear. Every Apollo interface has DUO or QUAD processing so you can build bigger, badder sessions.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
