Unisonプラグイン VS ヴィンテージアナログハードウェア
ApolloのUnisonプリアンプモデルをヴィンテージアナログと比較するとどうなるのでしょうか？プロデューサーのJacquire King （Tom Waits、Kings of Leon） はNashvilleの伝説的なBlackbird Studiosでそれを比較しました。
“I love my new Apollo x8p! I can mix without worrying about the amount of plug-ins I use, and the new converters reveal the most subtle details when I record. One of the best upgrades that I’ve added in a long time.”
– Derek ‘MixedByAli’ Ali (Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Childish Gambino)
“I'm really impressed with the Apollo X8. I hear more detail in the several sets of monitors I use, and I'm getting that little bit extra out of the Unison mic pre emulations – and they were already extremely close.”
– Jacquire King (James Bay, Kings of Leon, Tom Waits)
“This is the best-sounding Universal Audio D/A ever. By far. It has an extra octave of clear bottom, but it's not hyped. It's just very solid and full. It's like there’s no converter generated signature at all. It’s completely open and natural.”
– Fab Dupont (David Crosby, Shakira, Santigold)
“My Apollos are my sound.
Where I go, they go.”
– Trevor Lawrence Jr. (Dr. Dre, Herbie Hancock, Eminem)
“Apollo is a platform that grows more powerful with every innovation – the UAD plug-in processing onboard has changed the way I work forever.”
– Tony Platt (AC/DC, Bob Marley, Buddy Guy)
“The Apollo is the best I/O we've ever used, and we've tried them all. It has an incredibly clean, transparent, and accurate sound.”
– The Glitch Mob
“I’m totally blown away by the stunning sound quality of the Apollo. The ability to use UAD plug-ins in real-time is pure genius. It’s the centerpiece of my new studio.”
– Richard Devine
“The Apollo's ability to do low latency – I mean that's the whole ballgame right there.”
– Joey Waronker (Atoms for Peace, Beck, Other Lives)
“The Apollo is a powerhouse and a game changer for my studio.”
“Using my Apollos and Console 2.0, I'm able to front a live mix, create a monitor mix, and record, all at the same time. That’s pretty awesome.”
– Chris Dugan (Green Day, Iggy Pop, U2)
“Having the Apollo with UAD plug-ins at my disposal is like carrying a giant studio with outboard racks at all times. Minus the tech fees, down time, and electricity bill!”
– Andrew Dawson (Jay-Z, Fun.)
“Apollo's A/D and D/A conversion sounds incredibly detailed, with great clarity and a tight, punchy low end. And with the Console 2.0 app, I have all of the routing and monitoring options I need.”
– Dave Pensado (Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Maroon 5)
“The Apollo x8p is the workhorse for the majority of our mobile sessions. The flexibility is crucial to our workflow and once you’re familiar with the front panel controls and Console software, it becomes a seamless experience that allows you to truly craft your sound.”
– Mike Larson (Pharrell, Ariana Grande, Migos)

Unusable due to latency
Hey there, there must be something wrong with mine. However, the phone number directa me to your website and no one responds to my ticket. So now I just have a brand new very expensive new product that doesn’t work and I cannot return without a reaction from ua…
Hi, There! I got problem with getting my heritage edition plugins. Could you help me with that? Thank you
Love everything about it.

Very happy with my new set up. Even better than I had hoped it would be.
TOP quality interface + monitor control. 4 digitally controlled hi-quality pre's (w/ Unison preamp modelling), perfect for Townsend Sphere mic modelling.
X8 is now the centerpiece of my studio.
Below my expectations
X8 is very good at monitoring and analog feeling with in onboard preamps .
Seriously, if your main goal is recording then its your best solution.
Now, for my experience...
I'm in business for 20 years now. And every one of my previous audio interfaces had the option, using physical outputs as virtual outputs on my DAW. It means, if I had 20 out device, I was able to use 10 stereo out and I was able to group my mixes as freely as I wanted (1-2 Vocal, 3-4 Kick, 5-6 Beat Elements, 7-8 Bass ... 19-20 Vocal FX Etc..) but now I have only 4 Virtual Channel and the rest of my outputs are just, dead USELESS.
You may say, why didn't you ask before you buy, but, I did. And I got possibly the most vague answer that you can easily interpret as buy before try.
And I'm keeping it just for the sake of surround monitoring and recording performance.
In the near future it will only be used for recording as a preamp unless it gives me back full control as my previous devices.
And I'm still in shock and furious that X8 can't do this simple thing even a 300$ interface does.
I hope and believe, with an easy software update you can fix it. I saw its done before with RME, Presonus and Tascam. Please consider it.
A this point is the center of my studio. Simply the best interface you can buy
I enjoy using it
It’s convenient, sounds good and has lots of connectivity. When I clock it off my RME Babyface Pro FS I swear it sounds a little more open, but maybe it’s my imagination .
Its more of a cost efficient piece hardware, than u would expect!
I´m running a low budget studio to make beats and I used a standard interface before. With the x8 i can connect all my hardware to one place and I need no hardware mixer. I surely need no other preamp for my mics anymore. I can use my Instruments without running my pc and I can practice and record with no latency. This things plays like its a real amp. If you can make a good deal on this thing, think about the true value, that could be inside for you. It made my workflow so much easier and the quality of my audio stuff raised to the top. 10/10
Amazing sound quality and ease of use
As a long-time user of UAD Apollo Twin, the change to Apollo X8 brought not just much more features but also an enhancement in audio quality. Also, the more amount of DSP pays in the everyday work.
Amazing piece of gear
I had an Apollo twin for many years, did wonderful things with it, but always had the limitation with the I/O and the DSP.
Now that I am finding my mixing and recording flow I couldn’t be more happier with the decision of getting an X8. Initially was going to get the X6 but I guess I was very lucky when one of the local dealers went on a frenzy sale and set the price of the X8 even below the X6.
No long ago I got the Craneborne 500 ADAT and it was so easy to connect both devices via ADAT I can’t wait to utilise all the X8 features
Best Piece of Rental Property You'll Never Own!
I own two UA Apollo x8s. I really enjoyed the initial experience & product and realized buying a second ( to cascade) was a better option to add more channels—than dealing with ADAT pre/converters.
When I purchased my second Apollo, I received some extra UAD plugins, which really made me happy about my purchase. Two weeks later, UA sent me a short email stating that I received free plug-ins in error and they would be removing them, since I received a free Townsend mic. Two days later they removed activation for 8 plugins form my account without any record of what was added or removed.
A few days after that, I reluctantly purchased six more UADs via third-party. What dawned on me is that with all of the UADs I have purchased there is no static, detailed log of what I actually own. All I can see, is what UA says I own under the "My Plug-in Library." This dynamically updates on your machine as your UAD drivers update.
So please be aware that when you commit to UA's ecosystem, they have free rein over the "My Plug-in Library" section of your account (the only documentation of what you own). The invoices in your account also lack details (e.g. it says bundle, but no details of the UADs you picked). I do believe that one of the UADs they took back was in error, but I have no way to prove it. I tried to route this overall complaint through their customer service—which I believe was met with a somewhat condescending response. "We have logged your request as a complaint regarding your experience." Then wished me the best, and said "hope you and your family are safe and healthy."
Yes, I get it—there are bigger things to worry about, but this is acting like I am making a petty complaint, instead of acknowledging that I am not happy with their service.
So keep in mind that before you set forth on a very expensive journey. Their product is as good as the person responding to your issue.
Nice sound Solid Hardware
i am very satisfied about this audio card . Could be a bit less expensive, but it’s great hardware and flexible usage. I don’t use Luna though
S. van Servellen
Pricey but top quality integrated hardware/software
TOP quality hardware / software integration that now sits at heart of my workflows,
Low Mic Input levels
Very Solid build, but a bit concerned with the very low mic in put level I am getting from the preamps. I usually have to turn up the gain almost 2 thirds. And with that it still peaks at about -18db. In addition I get a lot of ambient noise. This is the same situation when I use the unison preamps. Getting a bit frustrated more so that I saved up to get my dream interface.
What's there to say? It's simply the best.
I've wanted one for years and now I have it. Best thing I ever did for my music was get into the Apollo UAD ecosystem. That and my Focal monitors but this isn't the forum for that ;-) Get an x8. You need it. Even if you don't need it you totally need it. It's simple science.
I had the first version of the Apollo racks and then got two Apollo desktops. This is a world of difference sonically. The first thing I noticed was the clarity and detail. I thought about the X6 but this gave me more ins and outs and really made my setup more flexible. I send my tracks to external hardware and the console makes things so much easier. I also like that I can now work in standalone mode without having to do anything extra. When I'm ready to switch to the computer to track out it does so seamlessly. I have had a chance to run my bass through the Hi-Z inputs without any issues at all. It is really a great all-around interface.
MY BEST BEASY GEAR
Incredible! I’m loving my new Apollo X! Thanks UAD
Pro quality interface.
With all the features and options available, the x8 has integrated well in my home studio. Blends well with Pro Tools and the tutorial videos are a real help. I hope to add more UA products in the coming months....
Sounds great. Luna has not been released for Windows. (2022) The Thunderbolt drivers work for the DAW, but you have to switch sample rates when using other Windows programs. The USB Apollo had a sample rate for the DAW and switched automatically to 44.1 when you went to windows. Still, it sounds great and works well enough.
x8 game changer
I went from "consumer level" pro-audio to "pro-level " in deciding to upgrade into the Apollo series with the x8. I was not prepared for how noticeable the difference is. I have been chasing this sound for a long time, "Houston, we have landed"....
