Universal Audio Apollo x6

A new entry into the Apollo series, the Universal Audio Apollo x6 offers all the benefits of its larger siblings: increased processing power, elite converter quality, Unison-equipped preamps, and more. Like the others in the Apollo "x" line, the Apollo x6 features HEXA Core processing for UAD plugins, combining with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to ensure that latency is kept to a minimum even in situations where intense processing is required. Redesigned converters offer unprecedented dynamic range and signal to noise, while 4 Unison-equipped preamps provide the sounds of classic pres of yesteryear all under digital control. With all of these niceties and more, it becomes apparent that the smallest member of the Apollo x family is by all means just as powerful as its siblings.

To get the most out of your Apollo x6 or other Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo device, you need Luna, a platform designed by Universal Audio. It's an all in one production, recording, and mixing solution that brings out the power of your Apollo device. Luna allows for near-zero latency recording and production, even with the most demanding plugins. Luna is available for free download for Apollo users here. Note that as of its release, Luna is only compatible with Mac computers.
