An Amazing Investment
It truly is a great investment, and does provide an incredibly clear sound even without plugins. There is a night and day difference between this interface and budget interfaces.
With near 0 latency, it made my dream come true. Perfect product for all sorts of audio work. Highly recommended

Just Purchase my new toy the Apollo Twin USB and wow this thing is Awesome very Impressive working great on my PC know Issue. ..
Professional sound quality
The audio quality of this wonderful machine is fantastic.
I use an old microphone for live,
Shure beta 87/A , and the result was incredible.
I don't even imagine what can be done with a professional studio microphone.
For small recording studios that don't have big budgets, you can't ask for anything better. Quality/Price, superb!

Absolutely positively the best investment I could ever have made. Phenomenal performance and sound. I now understand the value of a POWERED plugin. WOW.
big background noise
I don't know if the first one I received was broken, I just tested the audio, and opening Cubase, my krk gave a big background noise, that didn't happen with my old sound card, lower level than the twin usb. Sent back to the seller, waiting for a new one
Awkward Install but well worth it
I am a newbie to recording, so I was worried when I had no left channel monitoring when installed. Support took a long time to get back to me and a firmware reset solved it.
The sound quality is superb on this unit as are the UAD plugins, for my guitar based needs the Helios pre amp and pultec EQ are on all the time.
Everything it is cracked up to be and more!
I wanted to upgrade my interface from the "red" ones that I've been using and man this didn't disappoint!
Great sound when it works
I received the Apollo Twin USB about 6 days ago. I have been saving up for it for quite a while and was really looking forward to it. The installation was ok, I was surprised how many extra posts I had to read and work through to get it to work with windows. In the end it worked and the sound was great. Short. If you listen closely you can hear small pop and glitch noises in the sound. After a long search I found the safe guard function, so it sounds a little better again.
But: I use it in abelton. As soon as I switch it to ASIO and listen to anything else in Windows, like the UAD Apollo setup tutorial, the sound distorts and gets noisy. Other users and UAD posts suggest that there is a problem between the UAD Asio driver and windows WDM. All last weekend I spent several hours each time searching the UAD forum and web for solutions and trying them out. Nothing has made it better.
So I was looking forward to Monday. There should be UAD phone support available. Unfortunately not. No one in all of Europe can be reached by phone from UAD. It took me half of Monday to find a solution and send a message to UAD support including my windows system log by email. Until today (Thursday afternoon) I waited for an answer and waited with the review. Unfortunately, still no one has contacted me. Therefore, I see the 1 star rating now as justified.
My old far cheaper scarlett interface worked straight, by the way, there were no problems with the drivers, no noise, no page-long instructions, what you have to do, that the interface works and the support was also available.
Very sad. Very sad. I hope that maybe through the rating someone can be found who can and will help me because I would still appreciate the sound and the plugins very much.
Great sound, with ease
Sold some hardware pultec and La-2a clones to get into this unit. Would say the included plugins sound almost as good and made the switch well worth. Plus I got many more plugins on top of those too! The 1176 sounds better than most hardware versions. And the unison stuff is phenomenal! Hat off.
Only downside is that it's missing optical out for expanding with more out channels. And that the Luna software is not yet supported (or even planned) for windows users.
Apollo twin USB version is awfull
Do NOT recommend USB version for windows, full of bugs lags etc.... Maybe it can work for some kind of lattency problem but after all user experience is just awful everthing is not designed for windows at all i dont want to list all the problems that i've faced this year with apollo twin usb but trust me A LOT, i put 2 start just for rly good plugins emulations suddenly they also works now rly well on windows
Great sound but what DAC?....
Excellent audio interface, intuitive software, low latency on Windows 10, but I'd like to know if it has the same converters as the TWIN X (ES9016S)
I upgraded from Presonus Studio 26c for Studio one 5. It is not BUS powered and the sound is much better. I’m really happy that I upgraded for my studio.
I saw lots of people complain about apollo being so complicated. I think its super simple, you can even use it to play through with your computer turned of. Sounds just great as well as the plugins i have so far. Also I have the USB version and have had no problems so far.
I swicth to Apollo Twin USB and everything works better without changing anything in the configuration. I recommend this purchase, I'm very happy with my Apollo Twin USB so I recommend it
This Apollo Audio interface is simply stunning. Runs smooth with USB 3.0 on Windows and delivers great performance. Integrated DSP for nearly no latency when recording with UA Plugins.
Highly recommend this one.

Está bien pero... Es Ridiculo no poder utilizarla fuera de los DAW
Teniendo en cuenta que la Apollo Twin es un estandar a nivel internacional, tiene una excelente calidad de sonido, PERO, no puedo entender por qué motivo no se puede utilizar la entrada de la placa en los exploradores, el micrófono únicamente funciona con los DAW, si quieres utilizar la placa para conectarte a SourceNexcus o Session Link Pro, por ejemplo, la Apollo no es compatible, esto me resulta increíble, es muy molesto, hasta las placas que cuestan 100 dolares pueden hacer eso. Es ridículo.
