Universal Audio Releases New Apollo Twin X Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface

Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to release Apollo Twin X, now shipping and available in stores worldwide. Featuring elite-class A/D and D/A conversion inherited directly from the award-winning Apollo X rackmount interfaces, and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Mac or Windows, Apollo Twin X is a potent sonic update to the world’s most popular professional desktop audio interface.

Available in UAD-2 DUO or QUAD Core formats for running acclaimed UAD plug-ins in real time, this 10 x 6 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface provides unrivaled sonic detail with 127 dB dynamic range. This elite-class conversion represents a new gold standard in desktop audio quality, ensuring that Apollo Twin will be used to capture a new generation of hits.

Apollo Twin X also features dual Unison-enabled mic preamps and a front-panel Hi-Z instrument input. Unison technology gives Apollo Twin X users the impedance characteristics, gain stage “sweet spots”, and unique circuit behaviors of the world’s most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including authentic emulations from API, Neve, Fender, Manley, SSL, Helios, UA and more.

Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo Twin X confidently outperforms everything in its class. With its unrivaled dynamic range, Realtime UAD Processing, and an included bundle of popular UAD plug-ins, Apollo Twin X presents a fully-stocked analog studio, right on the desktop.
