"QUAD = Studio Perfection"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The apollo twin mkii quad has been the most significant upgrade to my studio hands down. You truly feel the connection between your DAW (Logic Pro X in my case) and the interface. The sound quality and ease of use makes the unit a dream to work with. The buttons are well thought out and positioned in a manner that makes for a very intuitive experience overall. The most significant feature is the onboard DSP chips which takes the workload off of your computer. That feature along with unmatched effects plugins and the capability to record on the way in through true world class preamp emulations with undetectable latency is immensely powerful. Truly a industry standard unit. Buy this and have no regrets for settleing for something much more inferior and subpar.

Top notch “big studio” sound quality is what you get from this unit. Hands down the best sounding unit I have ever used. Sound is better than the apogee unit which this replaced.

The features that sets this unit apart is the onboard DSP and the ability to record through plugins via the awesome unison technology. Other features are great as well i.e. talk back mic, dim, low pass filter, dedicated headphone/monitor buttons. Truly a feature packed unit.

Ease of Use
By far the most well thought out and intuitive unit I have ever used. It is a dream not to have to dive through menus and hoops and just be able to adjust read more parameters in a tactile manner. The unit once detected immediately once plugged into the thunderbolt cable. Set the unit was set up in Logic and it has been flawless ever since.

Both the build and sound quality are immaculate. The device is built like a tank and poses no threat of a short life span.

The value far exceeds the price tag with what all you get from this unit. I purchased when UAD offered the extra four free plugins (Neve 1073, Fairchild Collection, Oxide Tape Recorder , Lexixon 224 Reverb) which is and added value of over $1,000 so I couldn’t be happier.

Manufacturer Support
My only involvement with UAD support was to register the device which was just simply cool proof easy! Other companies should follow suit with registration protocol.

The Wow Factor
The interface does give if a wow factor due to the professional look of the unit. UAD is synonymous with quality for those in the know.
