Universal Audio Apollo Twin X DUO Heritage Edition


Poised to be the heart of any home studio or mobile rig, the Universal Audio Apollo Twin X DUO Heritage Edition is a desktop 10x6 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface that seamlessly combines the essence of analog studio recording with powerful DUO Core real-time UAD processing. The interface includes a robust bundle of 25 stellar UAD plug-ins, offering musicians, producers, and songwriters unparalleled sound, feel, and flow.

Crystal-Clear Recording and Mixing

Furnished with elite-class 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion akin to the popular Apollo X rackmount interfaces, the Apollo Twin X DUO ensures crystal-clear, high-resolution recording and mixing. Boasting low distortion (-117 dB) and a vast dynamic range (127 dB), this interface provides appreciable value for audio engineers seeking precision.

Unison Integration for Vintage Character

Featuring two XLR-1/4" mic/line combo inputs and a 1/4" Hi-Z input, all with Unison integration, the Apollo Twin X DUO allows for precise UAD emulations of classic analog preamps. This enables the infusion of vintage character into microphone and instrument recordings while bypassing the unpredictable nature of old equipment.

Efficient Signal Optimization

With a switchable low-cut filter, pad, polarity inversion, 48V phantom power, and stereo linking on each analog input, optimizing incoming signals is efficient and straightforward. The interface supports recording up to eight additional channels by connecting external preamps with ADAT or S/PDIF optical outputs to the TOSLINK optical input port.

DUO Core Processing and Plug-In Bundle

The built-in DUO Core processing allows for monitoring and recording audio using classic analog emulations with near-zero latency and without burdening your computer's CPU. The Heritage Edition includes a bundle of 25 top-notch plug-ins, ranging from vintage compressors and EQ collections to virtual guitar/bass amps and time-based processors.

Pro-Level Workflow and Comprehensive Monitor Section

The Apollo Twin X DUO offers a comprehensive monitor section with talkback functionality and dedicated front-panel controls for Alt Speakers, Dim, and Mono functions. It also provides input and output metering capabilities. Additionally, the interface integrates seamlessly with LUNA, Universal Audio's free Mac-based recording system with unlimited track counts and Audio Units plug-in support.

Expandable I/O and DSP
