Apollo 8 Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface
I can’t use any other interfaces after i bought my first apollo in 2015 and know I’m using all my apollo8 features and thats why I’m addicted to apollo .
Worth every penny!
I knew I’d be upgrading my setup when I bought this but I didn’t expect it to exceed my expectations! Also streamlined my workflow, and the plugins are fantastic!
Didnt thought it could get better, but..
After owning the first Apollo i thought what could get better, but this is one more Step
further than the first Edition, really a great Tool, works great with my other Apollo
Amazing Clarity - Apollo 8
Since we mostly crank out voice overs you would think having few tracks and devices to deal with would be no issue... and its not. But the clarity with the Apollo 8 is amazing - mic -> UA 610 SE -> Apollo 8 -> volume automation -> done. Clients love the quality and so do we.
does not work with my new windows laptop
After 7 weeks of working with tech support from both Dell and Universal Audio, my brand new gaming laptop Dell G7, i7 with Thunderbolt does NOT detect the Apollo 8 at all, so I had to buy another laptop MacBook Air M1 bigSur and the Apollo does work on that.

Great equipment and consumer support
Great piece of equipment. Best consumer support. Excelent job from UA.
Back For My Third Apollo!!
Loved my first Apollo 8 so much I decided to buy a second one. My system now consists of 2 x Apollo 8 DUO's, 1 Apollo Twin and a UAD Satellite QUAD TB. Now it's time to load up on some cool new UAD plugins. Keep up the good work everyone!
Solid like all the other UAD products!
Solid like all the other products made by UAD.
Second hand but works well
although the used Apollo 8 has a TB 2 connection with the help of 2 Apple TB2 to TB3 converter and the proper cables I could daisy-chain the unit with my Apollo Twin X and Satellite TB3 units . negative aspect: Original Apple Cables and converter alone cost almost 200 EUR
Very bad Windows Compatibility.... Had to buy for 1000 $ adds to make it work... Cable ( 50 $) thunderbolt 2 to 3 adapter ( 150 $) a pci Card ( 200 $) and a compatible computer motherboard ( 700 $ to have installed and rigged on my actual computer. So in the end the question is : Is it realy compatible with windows ? In my book i wouldn't say so. Other Brands work definitely better with Windows..
Buying an Apollo is one of the worst move i made in my engeneer career .
Clean - amazing
I recently upgraded to an Apollo 8 and what an upgrade. The preamps are so clean - my guitar has never sounded so great. I’m really enjoying having access to the UAD amps in unison and also the preamp emulations. I couldn’t recommend it more. I do a lot of travelling with music usually - I know I’m gonna want to take it with me. Guess I also need is an Apollo twin for when life gets back to normal !
Looks like a good piece to add to my silverface apollo. I can’t get it to work however, and the repair center I was directed to, is not doing a good job at getting my issue resolved either. This might be the last piece of UA gear I buy to be honest. I had a similar issue when I bought my silverface, and it was very expensive to handle that situation as well. Not too happy right now. I miss when digidesign was the go to right about now, but they died with FireWire.
Amazing! Perfect option for me
Já tinha ouvido falar e visto muita informação a respeito dos equipamentos UAD, minha esperiencia recente apos aquisição da Apollo 8 é que, a empresa faz jus a tuda sua reputação, e vale cada dolar gasto. Definindo em uma palavra "Qualidade"!!
Owned, tried to change, back to Apollo
After a very short experience with a Quantum 48 from PreSonus, I purchased back 2 units and the transients are all back in my studio as before...
The best big brother for my twin
I bought this because I needed it to connect my twin and my two ADAT intefaces together. And I have to say this was the best decision ever!
Now I can monitor 26 channels over console and making cue mixes in the best way possible.
Thanks for this awesome product !!
What's better than an Apollo 8?
TWO Apollo 8's!
Not selling this anytime in the foreseeable future. Great addition to my studio. ;-)
I love this interface
What can I say?
We bought 2 Apollo 8 TB interfaces to run with our Twin and Saffire Pro 40's. All working amazingly together, we absolutely love em! The sound quality is exceptional and so easy to set up and use the 'Console'.
