Universal Audio Apollo x8

Unprecedented converter quality, integrated DSP power, Unison preamps, and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity: these features converge to make the Apollo series Universal Audio Apollo x8 one of the finest interfaces available. New HEXA Core DSP allows for even more seamless integration of the UAD plugin collection, while redesigned AD and DA converters take signal to noise ratio and overall dynamic range to impressive new heights. Combine this with integrated talkback, easy +24dBu operation, and easy expandability via Thunderbolt 3, and it becomes apparent why Apollo remains a critical name in the pro audio industry.

Universal Audio has introduced Luna, a recording environment designed for the Apollo x8 or other Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Devices. It compiles all your UA plugins into one location and allows them to run with near-zero latency. With intelligent workflow and built-in plugins, Luna is a perfect companion to Apollo Devices. Luna is available for free download for Apollo users here. Note that currently, Luna is only compatible with Mac computers.
