Audio interface • FireWire Interface • PC Connection: FireWire • Design: 19" 1 U • Analogue In/Out: 8 In / 14 Out • Mic Inputs: 4 • Digital In/Out: 2 ADAT I/O, S/PDIF Coax • Monitor Mixing: Hardware Monitoring DSP controlled • Sampling Rate: 192 kHz • Resolution: 24-Bits • Special Features: Internal UAD Duo; Thunderbolt optional • 18 x 24 FW800 Audio Interface with Built-in UAD-2 Duo DSP for UAD-2 Powered Plug-ins and Included Analog Classics Bundle Included - Mac • DUO Core processor • Combining an analog front end, 24-bit/192 kHz conversion, and built-in UAD-2 Duo plug-in processing, the Universal Audio Apollo Duo 18 x 24 firewire audio interface represents a new approach to recording. Built-in UAD-2 DSP lets you run UAD-2 powered plug-ins without the need for a separate processor card to be installed in your computer. Apollo Duo provides built-in UAD-2 Duo DSP to track, mix, and master with UAD-2 powered plug-ins with near-zero (below 2ms)latency. UAD-2 powered plug-ins deliver incredibly realistic emulations of classic studio processors, so you can get the sound of iconic analog equipment on your tracks with the convenience of plug-ins. And with Apollo Duo, you have all the DSP power you need to run an array of these plug-ins with ultra-low latency while your host computer runs your DAW. Includes “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle w/ LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer. The Universal Audio's Apollo Duo is the world's first Thunderbolt-ready audio interface, with an expansion port that allows you to install an optional Thunderbolt expansion card. Thunderbolt offers a much larger bandwidth and faster transfer rates than USB or Firewire, meaning you'll be able to record more tracks at higher resolutions with lower latencies than you could before, even when using all 18 inputs and 24 outputs. Universal DAW compatibility for Mac (PC compatibility is scheduled for Summer 2012), and the ability to connect a UAD-2 Satellite to power even more UAD-2 DSP plug-ins, and you'll see that the Universal Audio Apollo Duo firewire audio interface sets a seriously powerful foundation for your recording studio. The Thunderbolt expansion port will allow you to add Thunderbolt connectivity (via an optional card) to a Universal Audio Apollo QUAD. Based on PCIe technology, Thunderbolt will offer a much-higher bandwidth connection than USB or Firewire, and with lower latency. While Apollo QUAD already features sub-2ms latency with its Firewire 800 connection, as the technology standards for digital audio advance Apollo QUAD will be equipped to handle future transmission requirements with ease.
