The Universal Audio Apollo really is quite an incredible audio interface. And that’s just as an interface. Factor in the onboard UAD duo or Quad processing, and it all adds up to quite a package!
Thunderbolt audio interface
Let’s be honest, while the specifications for Thunderbolt are impressive, we’re still waiting on a glut of products to really take advantage of it. The UA Apollo was among the first to offer optional Thunderbolt connectivity and, with the current free Thunderbolt card offer, now is the time to pick up that new interface!
From Universal Audio:
“Now through March 31st, 2014, register a new Apollo DUO, Apollo QUAD, or Apollo 16 audio interface, purchased from an authorized UA retailer, and you’ll receive a FREE pre-installed Thunderbolt Option Card — a £459 value! [sic]
The Apollo Thunderbolt Option Card provides greater UAD plug-in instances, improved performance at higher sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency versus FireWire. Compatible with the latest generation of iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, and Mac minis, the Thunderbolt Option Card offers unrivaled bandwidth and next-generation connectivity for Apollo.”
Already bought an Apollo and feeling a bit left out? Well DON’T WORRY! UA are lovely, lovely folk and have taken your feelings into heavy consideration. Basically, if you bought an Apollo without the card in December ’13, get in touch and they’ll send you a Thunderbolt card. If you bought one WITH a card and you’re feeling a bit stung, give them a shout and they’ll send you some awesome vouchers to use on their plug-ins.
