UA are working on daisy chaining Apollo units. They aren't making promises but know there is demand for it.

These are new converters and NOT borrowed from any other existing UA devices. They have been designed to be clean & transparent so that coloration can be done at the users own discretion (ie with the tape plug ins and if recording say orchestral material with no coloration)

UA Answer - The SPDIF outputs mirror the monitor outputs.

Installing OS v 6.1.1 will automatically upgrade all your existing UAD plug ins to work in their new "input" mode allowing them to work with Apollo.

Funny how the UA reps at NAMM were spouting otherwise. I wonder if the design changed or they were just taking a guess.

There are "hooks" built into the software to allow controllers to drive the mixer in future. UA are aware this is a popular request.

Inputs 1-4, can the preamps be bypassed? If so, is it done in the software or on the unit?

Plugging into line inputs 1-4 does bypass the pres - so yes.

It's seems "Rock 'n Roll'.

Print the sound you want at the tracking stage.

No looking back, no need to "freeze" so you can re-do later.

Commit to sound you like and move on. Goodby to the "tweak forever" mentality.

Use the plug in power for mix-down.

It's a tracking thing.

Actually, I meant on the XLR ins. I wanna go XLR outta my GTQC to XLR in on the Apollo. Can I bypass the pre's somehow that way?

I have a FF800 now. I us an ADA8000 via ADAT out to my Furman headphone distribution system. I use aux sends in PT10 and send them to outs 1-6 in the ADA8000. it works great. I know I can still do this in PT, but I was wondering if I can do this in Apollo from in the console application instead? any reason why not? I suppose I should d/l the manual and see, but I thought someone might have the same idea...
