Universal Audio Apollo Twin Interfaces
Apollo is a name that inspires thoughts of mighty greek gods and superhuman endeavours in space exploration. While an audio interface might not have the same impact in the public imagination it's fair to say that Universal Audio's Apollo Twin interfaces are an incredible achievement. With an incredible heritage that includes groundbreaking analogue audio design and digital UAD technology that pushed the envelope in terms of plugin sound quality, Universal Audio are almost uniquely placed to offer a Thunderbolt interface that melds these two worlds together in one sleek, beautiful package.
Unison Technology - A World Of Vintage Style Preamps In One
Universal Audio have developed all new Unison technology to give you perfect digital control over analogue aspects of the preamp, including impedance and gain staging. This is ollowed by digital modeling in the Unison plugin. Having measured every single component in the original units you get a perfect digital recreation of everything that happens after the mic hits the input too. For more information here's Gannon Kashiwa from UA.
UAD Plugins - VST, RTAS, AAX 64, and Audio Units
You may already be familiar with UAD plugins, they've been around for quite a while and have continued to represent the cutting edge of analogue modelling technology. The library continues to grow and now there's a frankly staggering collection available on the Universal Audio store. No matter if you're after the classic 1176 compressor or the (Garden Hose-Based Mechanical Delay Device!) Cooper Time Cube there's all kinds of weird, wonderful, vintage and boutique emulations of supremely rare and expensive hardware. Having used them on numerous mixes ourselves we could wax lyrical all day long, however why not listen to someone who knows what they're talking about instead...
