The Universal Audio Apollo 16 MkII is an elegant update to UA’s premium audio interface — delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. Perfect for professional studios, this 18 x 20 Thunderbolt interface offers twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p, making it ideal for pairing with mixing consoles and outboard processors.

Apollo 16 further distinguishes itself with Realtime UAD Processing, letting you record at near-zero latency through the full range of UAD plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon, and more. Apollo Expanded software now allows cascading up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices in a single system over Thunderbolt (Mac), so you can scale up your studio as your needs grow.

With its powerful onboard UAD-2 QUAD processing, genuine UA analog design, and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 16 puts class-leading audio performance in a sleek new package.

Universal Audio Announces New Apollo X Thunderbolt 3 Interfaces for Mac and Windows

...any way a super UAD fanboy, I don't even own a UAD interface yet. I was about to buy the Apollo 16 MK2, but this new release looks really good so I might just get one of these instead. Because they are improved, and if I didn't miss some big mysterious truth in this...

Who's Using Analog Summing...

I use 16 outs. Going to ad another bad Apollo 16 for the full 32 channels on the Sigma. Not because I hear no difference hear on my SAM calibrated Genelec 8351's
