Product information - Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII DUO Heritage Edition

UAD-2 DUO Core Real-Time Processing + Heritage Plug-ins Bundle

Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII DUO

The Universal Audio Apollo Twin MkII DUO desktop audio interface is a revised version of the popular Apollo Twin. The new Apollo Twin mkII delivers numerous technical improvements that primarily affect two features: Sound quality and handling during recording and output. Equipped with Universal Audio's UNISON technology, the Apollo Twin mkII enables virtually latency-free recording in conjunction with UAD-2-powered plug-ins, including authentic emulations of famous studio gear from Neve, Studer, Ampex, Manley, Fender and many more. The Apollo Twin Mk II's DSP technology offers great advantages over conventional DAW VSTs: the processing power of the processor boards takes the load off the audio computer and delivers excellent audio quality.

Recording studio in desktop format

The included UAD 2 plug-ins turn any recording setup into a virtual recording studio with the analogue sound of famous studio classics. When you purchase the Apollo Twin MkII, the Realtime Analogue Classics and Heritage Plug-ins packages are included. This gives you access to all the important studio tools in multiple versions: classic LA-2A and 1176 compressors, Pultec and Universal Audio EQs, various delays and reverb effects from AKG, Korg or Roland, as well as transistor or tube-based preamps from Neve, Helios or Siemens. Thanks to advanced tools such as the Precision Mastering series or the precise Oxford EQ, even tasks that require a high degree of precision can be done reliably. If you also get a more comprehensive reverb plug-in, e.g. UAD Ocean Way Studios, you are perfectly equipped for almost any application!

Next generation recording workflow

Compared to the original Apollo Twin, the new Apollo Twin mk II offers significantly improved monitoring functions with mute, DIM and ALT switching to a second monitor pair. Optimal for home studio and project studio use is also the new monitor remote control and the integrated talkback microphone - all in all, the improvements make the Apollo Twin mkII the next generation desktop recording tool.

What is Luna?

Luna is Universal Audio's in-house, full-featured DAW that realises a unique deep integration of preamp, interface, DSP and sequencer. With Luna, for the first time, the complete recording and production process can be accomplished with hardware and software from a single manufacturer in a single screen window. Luna controls the microphone amplifiers in the Apollo interfaces via the familiar UAD2 plug-ins, sets their impedance and sound behaviour matching the emulated analogue hardware, and enables monitoring of gain staging. Furthermore, the DSP cores of all Apollo interfaces and UAD DSP processors are controlled from a central location, reducing the overall latency from signal input to output to less than 2ms. Together with special Luna extensions for e.g. Neve consoles and Studer multitrack tape machines, you can not only make your recordings as if you were in an analogue studio, but they will also sound like one! 

Luna also comes with Unison mic preamp plug-ins from Neve, Manley, API, Avalon and other well-known manufacturers, and includes a whole range of newly developed instruments. These include a realistic Minimoog, a gorgeous concert grand piano that combines sampling and physical modelling, Spitfire Audio's orchestral instruments and a large sample library.

Luna is free for owners of the newer Apollo interfaces and so that no one has to fret when switching: Luna supports the cross-DAW session format AAF!
