Lives for gear
I for one don't mind clipping on the Apollos and have told friends using this gear the same.

In fact one of my favorite drum sounds I have gotten was running it through an outboard vintage EQ and tube compressor then back into a Silver Apollo and it was in the Red for sure. Like Joel mentioned, it similarly reminds me of a saturated MPC sound...actually has more bite than a purely analog tape or tube saturation. People freak out about digital clipping, but since the Apollo I really haven't worried too much about it anymore and focus on making creative sounds.
