Universal Audio Apollo x8p

Offering 8 world-class Unison preamps, increased processing power, and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the Apollo series x8p is one of the finest audio interfaces that Universal Audio has ever produced. A new HEXA core processor offers 50% more powerful processing than in prior Apollo generations, so latency is at an all-time low even with extensive processing. Coupled with redesigned AD and DA converters, Unison preamp technology, and the included UAD plugin bundle, this interface is an excellent choice for any studio seeking a top-grade, uncompromising interface for any recording situation.

Universal Audio knows you want the most out of your Apollo x8p or Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo device, that's why they developed Luna. Designed for Thunderbolt-equipped interfaces, it brings a convenient and intelligent workflow that maximizes their potential and performance. Luna is available for free download for Apollo users here. Note that currently, Luna only works with Mac computers.
