Universal Audio Apollo Quad FireWire Audio Interface features Quad Core UAD DSP processing power and comes bundled with the stunning Analog Classics software plug-in pack. Universal Audio Apollo Quad Firewire 800 interfaces offer high-resolution, low latency performance along with the sound, feel, and flow of analog recording. Apollo Quad features an 18 x 24 FireWire configuration and compatibility with Intel's Thunderbolt technology via an optional Thunderbolt card, which further enhances the performance of this already stunning unit.
Apollo Quad interfaces combine genuine UA analog design with class-leading 24-bit/192 kHz sound quality and onboard Realtime UAD Processing. Using Apollo, music producers and performers can finally track audio through a range of classic UAD analog emulation plug-ins from Neve, Studer, Manley, Lexicon and more - in real time, and with a sleek, elegant workflow on both Mac and PC.*
Sonically, Universal Audio Apollo Quad Mic inputs and Monitor outputs are digitally controlled analog, so you don't lose audio resolution when you adjust gain. High-resolution/high-contrast metering, derived from UA's legendary 2192 interface, is designed to be viewable at nearly any angle. Finally, standalone operation means that you can use Universal Audio Apollo Quad audio connections, and last-used DSP mixer settings, even without a computer connected.
* Compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7; Windows 7 support coming Summer 2012.
