Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo FireWire distinguishes itself with onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core processing and an included bundle of award-winning UAD plug-ins — which you can track through with near-zero latency, shaping sounds like a classic analog studio — without taxing your host Mac or PC. Apollo FireWire features four Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, and Universal Audio. An Apollo exclusive, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware. The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 QUAD or DUO Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface's impedance — so you can tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.


A little advice on UA setup?

...- It looks like an amazing deal? To boost my IO I thought I'd stay with UA and get an Apollo firewire interface (my mac pro isn't thunderbolt). So my question(s) are - Will I be able to hook them / daisy chain them all up so they sync happily together via one firewire...

Bae 1073mp amp through a Royer 121 and 57 into a BAE 1073mp with the SS mode, summing out into my Apollo firewire then into PT. I'm planning on eq'ing in the DAW with maybe a Pultech. Are there folks out there that follow a similar process where eq'ing is done in the DAW...

UA Apollo First Look (user review)

What's up guys! Long time no chat. Everything is going well for us. Sold my Symphony and Burl units and am strictly Apollo now. Hope all is well with the gang!
