Universal Audio Apollo Twin mkII Now Available For Mac & Windows

At the 2017 NAMM Show, we talked with Universal Audio’s Gannon Kashiwa, who gave us an overview of the new Apollo Twin MkII. 

The Apollo Twin mkII is described as “a ground-up redesign of the world’s most popular professional desktop recording interface for Mac and Window”. 

Featuring onboard Realtime UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, or all new QUAD Core processing, the 2×6 Thunderbolt audio interface improves upon the original Apollo Twin’s audio quality with redesigned AD/DA next-generation conversion, offering increased dynamic range and low THD.

Apollo Twin MkII also features Unison technology, which allows its dual mic preamps and front-panel DI to sound and emulate sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including their impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors. Unison lets Apollo Twin MkII owners track through a range of colorful preamp emulations from Neve, API, Fender, and more.

Apollo Twin MkII also offers improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent, or for recording slate cues.
