The Universal Audio Apollo 16 Audio Interface provides 16x16 analogue I/O FireWire/Thunderbolt connectivity, flexible routing and onboard UAD-2 Quad processing.

Universal Audio Apollo 16With its UAD-2 Quad processing onboard, Apollo 16 allows real-time processing with UAD Powered Plug-Ins (with as low as sub-2ms latency). It includes analogue emulations from Ampex, Lexicon, Manley, Neve, Roland, SSL and Studer. Apollo 16’s onboard UAD processing is also available during mixing and mastering, so that music producers can employ UAD plug-ins (VST, RTAS, AU) throughout the creative process.

Apollo 16 boasts straightforward 16x16 analogue I/O via convenient DB-25 connection. Two Apollo 16 units can be cascaded over Madi for an expanded system with eight UAD processors and 32x32 simultaneous analogue I/O, capable of handling large mixes. Dedicated XLR monitor outputs and stereo AES-EBU digital I/O round out the Apollo 16’s rear-panel audio connections.

Apollo 16’s routing capabilities include four stereo cue mixes with individually assignable outputs, and a new Virtual I/O feature that allows for Realtime UAD Processing of DAW tracks and virtual instruments.

The unit also offers compatibility with Intel’s high-bandwidth Thunderbolt technology on Macs via a user-installable dual-port Thunderbolt Option Card (sold separately). Thunderbolt provides greater UAD plug-in instances, improved performance at high sample rates, and reduced UAD plug-in latency in the DAW over Apollo’s standard FireWire connection.

Apollo 16 will carry an estimated street price of US$2,999U and the Thunderbolt Option Card an estimated street price of US$499US.
