Apollo twin & imac

Hello,

It seems that the apollo twin only works with the mac book pro and not with an imac...correct?

Thx

There's nothing in the specs about macbook pro vc. Imac vs mac pro or anything, just that it is only Mac OSX compatible... where do you see that?

Anyway, there is ZERO difference in compatibility between a thunderbolt macbook pro and a thunderbolt Imac or thunderbolt Mac pro. It will work with all of the above... pretty basic computer knowledge.

Ok. This is also a noog hardware question.
Can you put a cranesong hedd on the masterchannel of your waw and then record it back into the twin?

Kind of confused by that question. The cranesong is a AD/DA converter with some fx, right? So your signal chain would be :

Instruments --> Cranesong HEDD --> Apollo Twin --> DAW

Is that what you have planned?

Yes, you can do that.
Line outs (setup in DAW to out the masterbus to line outs) to the cranesong and output from that to the Line ins of the Apollo.

He's gonna need another interface though... how will he get from the out of the DAW to the IN of the cranesong?

How do you like your twin? Is the AD/DA good?

Yeah it sounds great, as good or better than the apogee... not a real discernable difference there (which is a good thing). It really shines as an extra DSP chip and solid drivers so far, which cannot be said for the Duet 2 I had. The plugins are top notch, lots of fun to work with and sound great, I've already dropped $500 on plugins, but $400 was spent on the one time upgrade offer for Manley, Ampex, and the Fairchild collection, then I bought Cambridge and the Transient designer for like $100 more after coupons and the $50 voucher. I'm happy with it so far, and i plan on adding 8 channels of MOTU through ADAT so I can start building a bigger hardware collection.

:D

How does the thunderbolt connection with PCI-speed work out, can you track and monitor from DAW without noticeable latency?

I'm most likely buying one twin solo to use on the road and for playing backtracks on live gigs, love my Apollo Quad!

Well that's great news. The thing is really cheap when concerning that a UAD 2 duo card itself is $699 and the duo Twin is only 200 bucks more.
