16×22 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with Realtime UAD Hexa Core processor, class-leading audio conversion and Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle.
The Universal Audio Apollo X6 is a 16×22 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with Realtime UAD Hexa Core processor and the Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle.
The Universal Audio Apollo X6 uses brand new class-leading audio converters paired with an all-new analogue circuit for ultra-pristine audio. Offering an impressive 129dB of dynamic range and -118dB THD+N, the new Apollo x6 sounds open and incredibly natural and stands its grounds against dedicated audio converters in any class.
Furthermore, the Apollo x6 features as standard six DSP chips, delivering 50% more UAD plug-in processing power than previous Apollo interfaces. Whether you record or mix, you can now accommodate bigger sessions with more UAD plug-in counts.
With two Unison preamps, the Apollo X6 lets you track through exact emulations of Neve, API, Manley, SSL and Universal audio plug-ins in real-time. Unison Technology mimics all the details of selected hardware mic preamps, valve or solid-state, including input impedance, gain stage and component level circuit. Combined with UAD’s Unison-ready plug-ins, it provides unparalleled realism.
In addition to the two preamps, the x6 includes six analogue inputs and outputs giving you the opportunity to mix in surround sound, ideal for people working for film or video games and with a selectable +24dBu operation, it works perfectly with professional mixing consoles and pro audio equipment.
As your studio grows, the x6 can be further augmented in a powerful recording powerhouse with 8-channel of ADAT to work with external mic preamps like the 4-710 or by connecting up to four Apollo via the Thunderbolt 3 connectors which are also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2.
