Apollo Twin X Quad Heritage Edition

Special Edition of Universal Audio’s Acclaimed Apollo Twin X Interface w/ QUAD Core Processing and a Bundled UAD Plug-In Package Worth over $1,300.

Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition has all the benefits of the acclaimed Apollo Twin X, including elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, QUAD Core realtime UAD plug-in processing, Unison-enabled mic preamps, and full LUNA Recording System integration. And it goes a step further, with a software suite of 5 award-winning UAD plug-in titles, featuring Collections from Teletronix,® Pultec,® and UA.

A Special Edition featuring Iconic UAD Analog Collections Onboard

A hallmark feature of Apollo is its Realtime UAD Processing, letting you run the full library of UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency. Taking you a step further, Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition gives you 5 premium plug-in titles worth over $1,300 — including the full suite of UA’s Teletronix and 1176 compressors, all Pultec EQs, UA 610 Unison mic preamps, and Pure Plate Reverb.

These premium Heritage Edition titles are in addition to Apollo Twin X’s included “Realtime Analog Classics” bundle, giving you the most accurate library of classic analog emulations included with any professional audio interface.

Two Unison Preamps — The Sound of Neve, Helios, API, Avalon & More

Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition features two Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, SSL, Avalon, Helios, and Universal Audio.* A Universal Audio exclusive, Unison is a proprietary hardware-software integration that nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid-state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component-level circuit behaviors. 

Unison technology is also found on Apollo Twin X’s front-panel Hi-Z instrument input, providing dead-on impedance and gain matching for guitar and bass amp models from Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, and more. 

Elite-Class A/D and D/A Conversion 

With thousands of hit songs and hundreds of Grammy-winning albums under their belt, Apollo Twin interfaces are used to create exceptional-sounding records every day. To improve upon the previous generation, UA engineers redesigned the Apollo Twin X’s audio conversion to deliver a striking 127 dB dynamic range and -117 dB THD+N, giving it a spacious, organic sound that easily rivals dedicated high-end converters costing much more. 

LUNA Recording System — Deep Apollo Integration with a Fast, Natural Workflow

All Apollo X series interfaces work with all major DAWs, including Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, and more. But they become a fully integrated recording system with LUNA, a powerful recording application for Mac from Universal Audio. Bolstered by Accelerated Realtime Monitoring,™ LUNA lets you track and mix in an intuitive single-window workflow with unlimited track counts, with full AU support and access to exclusive LUNA Instruments and Extensions.

Additional Connections & Built-in Talkback Mic

With its two Unison-equipped preamps, two line outs, and optical ADAT/SPDIF input — plus dedicated monitor remote controls and built-in Talkback mic — the 10 x 6 Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition gives you the I/O you need for professional tracks and mixes.

Professional Performance and Scalability 

Users of Apollo Twin X Heritage Edition can combine up to four Thunderbolt Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Once you expand your studio with an Apollo X rackmount unit, you can use Apollo Twin X as a desktop monitor control with additional I/O and DSP power.

(CONTROLS)

Level Knob – The Level knob controls multiple functions. The knob’s current function is selected with the PREAMP and MONITOR buttons.

(INDICATORS)

Preamp Gain & Volume Level Indicator LEDs – The LEDs surrounding the Level knob indicate the relative level of the selected function (either input channel preamp gain or monitor/headphone volume).

Channel Selection Indicators – The currently selected input channel is indicated by the lit channel name above its input meter (CH1 or CH2).

Input Meters – The two input meters display signal levels for each of the analog input channels.

Input Source Indicators – These indicators show which input source jack (MIC, LINE, or HI-Z) is active for the selected input channel.

Stereo Output Meters – These meters display the main stereo signal output bus levels.* The main output bus levels are independent of monitor and headphone volume levels.

MONITOR Selected Indicator – When MONITOR is lit, the Level knob controls volume of the monitor outputs

Headphone Selected Indicator – When HEADPHONE is lit, the Level knob (1) controls the volume of the headphones output.

Options Display – This panel displays the state of the preamp and monitor options, which are controlled by the six Option Buttons

Preamp options:

(a) INPUT Select Selects the active input source jack for the currently selected channel. The current selection is displayed by the Input Source Indicators.

(b) FILTER Enables a low cut (high pass) rumble filter with a cutoff frequency of 75 Hz.

(c) +48V Enables +48-volt phantom power for the mic input. Phantom power is typically needed for condenser microphones.

(d) PAD Attenuates (lowers) the XLR mic input signal level by 20 dB.

(e) POLARITY Ø Inverts the polarity (aka “phase”) of the input signal.

(f) LINK Links input channels 1 and 2 as a stereo pair.

Monitor options:

(g) TALK Activates the built-in talkback microphone and the DIM function.

(h) DIM Reduces the monitor output volume level. The amount of DIM attenuation is set in the companion Console software.

(i) ALT (Alternate) Switches the main monitor mix to an alternate set of outputs

(j) FCN (Function) This switch can be assigned to control one of three monitoring functions.

(k) MONO Sums the left and right signals of the stereo monitor mix into a monophonic signal.

(l) MUTE Mutes the monitor outputs.

(TOGGLES/SWITCHES)

PREAMP Button – Press this button to enter PREAMP Mode and activate the input channel controls. Press again to alternate the selected input channel between CH1 and CH2.
