Unison: Where Hardware Meets Software

Universal Audio Apollo Solo Interfaces
Unison technology is all about bringing the tangible and digital together. Plug into your Apollo Solo interface, select one of the Unison models in your DAW, and experience the sound and feel of a vintage Neve console, a classic Marshall tube amp, or any one of several amazing digital recreations of vintage gear.

Unison goes above and beyond most digital gear emulations, because of its unique hardware element. When you choose a Unison model of a vintage preamp, the technology literally changes the input impedance, gain staging, and other nuanced characteristics. Then, during tracking, it processes in the rest of the vintage circuitry. It all adds up to an incredible digital recording experience unlike anything else.
