Ready for cranking out tracks at home or on the road, the Universal Audio Apollo Solo Heritage Edition bus-powered desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface combines the sound, feel, and flow of analog studio recording with SOLO Core real-time UAD processing and a hearty bundle of 25 stellar UAD plug-ins. The Apollo Solo is effectively UA's Arrow interface with a new finish and slightly improved audio performance, rebranded to join the Apollo series.
Furnished with studio-class 24-bit / 192 kHz conversion, the Apollo Solo gives musicians, producers, and songwriters the appreciable value of high-resolution recording and mixing with distortion and dynamic performance beyond its price point.
The interface features two XLR-1/4" mic/line combo inputs and a 1/4" Hi-Z input, all with Unison integration for precise UAD emulations of classic analog preamps. Impart vintage character of your choosing on microphone and instrument recordings while bypassing the unpredictable nature of old equipment.
Thanks to the switchable low-cut filter, pad, polarity inversion, 48V phantom power, and stereo linking on each analog input, you can efficiently optimize your incoming signals with straightforward buttons on the Apollo Solo's face. It offers a dedicated stereo monitor feed and a front-panel headphone output, plus full input and output metering capabilities.
The built-in SOLO Core processing allows you to monitor and record audio using classic analog emulations with near-zero latency. The plug-in bundle included with the Heritage Edition empowers you with 25 top-notch plug-ins ranging from vintage compressor and EQ collections to virtual guitar/bass amps and time-based processors. The included Console application provides control and recall of all interface and UAD plug-in settings including channel-strip presets, drag-and-drop functionality, and dynamically resizable windows.
Mac and Windows drivers ensure compatibility with all major DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, Ableton Live, and more. The interface also integrates seamlessly with LUNA, Universal Audio's free Mac-based, single-window recording system with unlimited track counts and full Audio Units plug-in support.
Please note, the Apollo Solo requires a powered Thunderbolt 3 port on your computer in order to operate. To see if your computer is compatible with the Apollo Solo, refer to the manufacturer website for compatibility information.
