Universal Audio Apollo Twin X Duo provides elite audio conversion and Unison preamps in a desktop recording solution.
Not being a company to rest on their laurels, Universal Audio redesigned the Twin’s audio conversion (already re-imagined in the previous, MkII version), to deliver a sizeable 127 dB dynamic range (with -117 dB THD+N), giving Apollo Twin X a “spacious, organic sound that easily rivals dedicated high-end converters”
Unison Technology: The Genuine Sound of Neve, Helios, API & Manley Preamps
Apollo Twin X features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, Helios, API, Manley, Universal Audio and more. Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviours of the original hardware.
The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD DUO Core DSP Acceleration.
A Full Suite of Classic Analog Processing Onboard
Apollo Twin X 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. These Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the standard by which all other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged.
