Universal Audio Announce Apollo Twin MK II at NAMM 2017


Universal Audio have announced Apollo Twin MK II, the successor to the world's most popular professional desktop recording interface for Mac and Windows. The New Apollo Twin MK II, a ground-up redesign of the original Apollo Twin, delivers next-generation sound quality with Unison Technology, Realtime UAD-2 Processing, talkback functionality and improved monitoring functions to Mac and Windows users over Thunderbolt, plus a new model that adds UAD-2 QUAD processing to the line-up.


Featuring onboard Realtime UAD-2 SOLO, UAD-2 DUO, or all new UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, this 2x6 Thunderbolt audio interface improves upon the original Apollo Twin's gold-standard audio quality with completely redesigned AD/DA next-generation conversion — offering increased dynamic range and ultra-low THD.

Apollo Twin MkII also features Unison™ technology, which allows its dual mic preamps and front-panel DI to sound and behace like the world's most sought-after tube and solid state preamps, guitar amps, and stompboxes — including their all-important impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors.



Based on breakthrough integration between Apollo's digitally controlled analog inputs and its onboard UAD processing, Unison lets Apollo Twin MkII owners track through a range of colorful preamp emulations from Neve,® API,® Fender,® and more with amazing accuracy.*

Apollo Twin MkII also offers improved monitor functionality versus the original Apollo Twin — with Mute, DIM, Mono, and ALT speaker switching. It also includes monitor remote controls and a built-in talkback mic for easy communication with talent, or for recording slate cues. These features, combined with Apollo Twin MkII's scalability, make it the new standard for professional desktop recording.

*Apollo Twin comes with Universal Audio's “Realtime Analog Classic's” UAD plug-in bundle, featuring legacy editions of the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN Limiting Amplifier, and Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, as well as the 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ plug-in, and Softube Amp Room Essentials.

Apollo Twin MkII is now shipping and comes in your choice of three options: Apollo Twin QUAD, Apollo Twin DUO, and Apollo Twin SOLO.

Studio Tour : Emmy Winner Paula Fairfield's Dolby Atmos Studio

Emmy Award Winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield is most famous for her work on the hit HBO show, “Game Of Thrones". She’s the sound designer that gives the dragons their voice, and every roar, flap or hiss coming from one of Daenerys’ three dragons is created in the studio she built in her desert home near Palm Springs.

The heart of Paula’s studio is the Avid Pro Tools S6 control surface and Colin Broad PD3 / A-Mon monitoring system that controls her HDX system. For Dolby Atmos monitoring, RSPE incorporated a JBL LSR system housed in the ASC AttackWall for Immersive Sound. The ASC AttackWall provides an optimum mixing environment that's portable and modular and translates every time.

Stay up to date with Paula's adventures in sound design. Give her a follow on Twitter.
