Currently, we're in-between hardware deals. There's a huge plugin sale going as well as a Truefire promo where if you buy any Apollo or OX and register it by Oct 31st, you get 3 months of Truefire.com for free. ($100 value)

Think I’m going to take a leap of faith and ‘hope’ that there’s a free satellite promo with Apollo racks in November. Was ready to pull the trigger on an X6/X8. I’m 100% committed to re-investing in UA. Been demoing the channel strips again and I’m completely floored by the punch and how they respect dynamics. Need more power for that SSL E!! Probably going to grab some strips whilst the current sale is on!

Can I pair a Twin X with an Apollo X16, utilizing AES out from the X16 into a standalone DA converter, while using the volume controls of the Twin X as a monitor controller?

Yes you can.

Simply make the x16 the Monitor unit and choose Digital Mirror. The Twin will automatically take on Monitor Controller duties.

Does the alt or mono button on the twin work in this scenario?

Mono works and Alt sends the signal to Line out 1-2 for your Alt Mons.

OK thanks, so:

1. There's no way to use the main outs as the Alt Mon?

2. While the digital DAC is being used as the Main Monitor, does the same signal still send through the main outs? Like a mult? Or is it just inactive and unable to be used?

Sorry for the piggy back, but had the same questions...
Cheers

1. main out is main out. Alts start using the Line outs.

2. The AES is a mirror of the main out, so it's a mult so to speak.

Did the free satellite promo get cancelled? I thought it originally said it ran through December 31, 2020. Now I don't see it at sweetwater or on UAD's site.

I already got my request in on time, but thought it was odd the promo disappeared.

whoa that is surprising? I also got my promo order in last week and just doubled check my email confirmation... I'm guessing if people have them in transit they'll still be hooked up but not sure how UA handles that... I honestly didn't think UA was going to do it this year.

I wanted to update my Twin to an X but the plugin promo isn't really calling me, might wait till 2021. Budget kinda blown anyway...

Wonder if its related to the AKM fire. Wouldn't think that would affect the satellites though since they dont have any conversion chips.

Edit 1: Looks like its discussed on the UAD forum. I havent read it yet, but heres a link:
https://uadforum.com/general-discuss...they-gone.html

Edit 2: Looks like they are honoring purchases through tomorrow according to the above-link

Edit 3: Uad thread mentions new product releases in coming weeks. I just bought an X6, so I kind of hope its not a new and improved interface or I will be a little bummed. Then again they'd probably want to clear out the X series if they had a new interface coming to market, so wouldn't make tons of sense to pull the offer.

Damn, I nearly ordered an x16 last night but decided to do it in the morning, only to discover the free satellite promo has ended prematurely and is only eligible up to orders made last night

I am not even sure if they don´t offer some grace period (?) where you can still get the sattelite even if you bought it a day or two later, because it has to do with when you register the hardware and if you would have bought it yesterday you wouldn´t be able to register it until a day or 2 until it arrives.
