Universal Audio (UA) has announced the worldwide shipment of Apollo, a new high-resolution audio interface that combines UA’s analog design heritage with UAD powered plug-Ins in a sleek, elegant recording system for Mac and PC.
“Apollo is the culmination of 10 years of analog and digital audio development here at UA,” says Bill Putnam Jr., Universal Audio founder. “In many ways, it’s brought the analog and digital sides of our company together. With Apollo, we’re delivering the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording with all the conveniences of modern digital equipment, including next-generation Thunderbolt technology.”
Coinciding with initial product shipments, Apollo is also on display at the ongoing Prolight+Sound 2012 show (booth C68 in hall 5.1), with live demonstrations by Fab Dupont (Jennifer Lopez, Mark Ronson, Santigold) and vocalist Liza Colby.
Apollo is now available in both DUO CORE and QUAD CORE processing formats with estimated street prices of $1,999 (DUO processing model) and $2,499 (QUAD processing model).
In addition, Apollo’s Thunderbolt Option Card will be shipping in summer 2012, with pricing TBD.
Note that Apollo is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7; Windows 7 support coming in summer 2012.
