Apollo Twin MK2 Duo – Heritage Edition

The UAD Universal Audio Apollo Twin MK2 Duo is a ground-up redesign of the world’s most popular desktop audio interface. Delivering enhanced apollo audio conversion with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording.

Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo Twin MK2 starts with two Unison-enabled mic preamps.  While also offering stellar, next-generation A/D and D/A conversion derived from UA’s flagship Apollo 8, 8p, and 16. Also combined with a bundle of analog emulation plug-ins, allowing you to track through in real-time with Duo Core processing. Simply put, the Apollo Twin was born to make records.


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

With two Unison-enabled mic preamps, you can track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, SSL, API, Manley, and Universal Audio. An Apollo exclusive, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tubes and solid-state mic pres. Including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviours of the original hardware.

Furthermore, the secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 Duo Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface’s impedance. Allowing you to then tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.


A Full Suite of Classic Analog Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, Apollo Twin MkII provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug-ins. Including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, Pultec EQs, and the Unison-enabled UA 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, these Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.

So from the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars to the gentle limiting of the LA-2A on vocals. Your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.


Next-Generation A/D and D/A Conversion

Of course, the heart of any audio interface is the quality of its conversion, and the apollo audio is outstanding, with the UAD Apollo Twin MkII improving upon the original Apollo Twin’s gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned A/D and D/A conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD. This next-generation conversion results in breathtaking clarity, depth, and accuracy in your recordings.
