Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo Audio Interface Reviews


Top quality however be aware of limitations

As far as relatively portable Audio devices go the Apollo Twin is one of the highest quality I have ever seen. The interface is very tactile and a joy to use. This is very suited to a small professional project studio or someone having to do some recording with a mobile setup. The almost zero latency when tracking through the device with plugins is quite out of the ordinary. The UAD plugins are quite good, however pricey, plus you'll be doing a lot of bouncing down with effects as the SHARC chips on the Twin Duo can't handle many concurrent instances and the Solo handles half of that. Another limitation, other than the obvious support for MAC only currently, is these plugin's cannot be used without the Thunderbolt device which cannot be used without a power socket. This limits anyone who needs to work on mixes away from their studio/desk as the plugins will not function without the hardware. Could be a deal breaker for some and something I've found a little annoying. On the other hand the device can be essentially used live as a pre-amp with the plug-ins and a laptop which is quite revolutionary. So we have good and bad, but still all in all top quality, but you will end up paying for more plugins. I ended upgrading from the Solo as I couldn't even run those I wanted to use live tracking on one channel. Personally I think the Twin Solo is suited to very limited setups however I can manage to do more with the Twin Duo and would recommend that as the default choice.
