The best interface I’ve ever use! Have all I need and for the clients shows.
Super pratique cette petite carte son pour avoir la qualité Universal Audio tout le temps et partout !
Okay, but Insufficient DSP
I bought this for traveling. The bus power was a selling point. And I knew the DSP capability was lower... but it's too low to be usable. Like I'll add VOXBOX to Unison, and then I can't add a 2nd plugin (e.g. most reverbs, echos, saturators, etc). The Apollo Solo doesn't have enough computing power.
Also it MUST be powered by your laptop which I didn't realize. I figured I could power it off a newer USB-C PD PSU, and that the Solo would just use its last config. The idea was to use it as a versatile mic preamp (SM58 > UAD Apollo Solo > 1/4" line level stereo). But nope! Gotta have the laptop providing Thunderbolt power (not simply USB-C PD). My mistake for not understanding that before buying.
So my overall opinion is I would not buy this and instead just rely on in-the-box plugins. Since you need the laptop on regardless. There's not much benefit to this Solo interface given the severely restricted DSP power AND given its reliance on a laptop if you're using it as a standalone preamp.
The Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 exceeded my expectations. It is a spectacular audio interface. I use it every day and get great results. Simply fantastic!
I got my Apollo Solo and after a few weeks of use, i'm pretty disappointed. Converters sound good. As good, as converters on my other interface, which is much cheaper. Latency on Apollo is higher as well. DSP is pretty useless, it has very littile computing power, and with current latencies I don't see any reason to use Unison, i just add native plugins in my DAW.
It also doesnt offer any modern connectivity, like ADAT/SPDIF/AVB/Dante.
It works good as my "travel" audio interface and heapdhones amp. It looks nice. And IMO the price is not justified. Generally, i'm rather disappointed with the UAD products, and especially their very game'is, unclear pricing
After 1 week I understand how it goes, and since than it's amazing.
The best audio interface
Loving my new interface the quality is unmatched
The best portable audio interface
As is usually the case, Universal Audio produces excellent products. I'm happy, thank you
Apollo Solo is so good.
I was surprised when I actually saw this for the first time. Because the appearance is really beautiful. The appearance made of silver is simple, and it feels really luxurious when you touch it. And because it works with bus power, you can record anywhere with just a MacBook. 그리고 With a loopback function, live streaming is also possible. Built-in DSP chip allows for latency-free sound delivery in live performance. And I can connect my Apollo X6 and Thunderbolt to expand the number of inputs to make it 8 inputs. I was thinking about Apollo Twin X, and I'm glad that this is a really good choice.
I pretty much knew what to expect - solid, high quality audio interface with DSP. I definitely got that, and was also surprised how good it is for headphone monitoring. UA Console, plug-ins and luna are first-class products, too. I can only regret getting it too late!
Apollo solo tb 3
Big sound improvement
Had an Scarlett interface and a Hx Stomp. The sound improvement with the apollo is huge
Best audio interface
It’s such a comfortable to work with realtime uad plugins!
Great piece of hardware to place in you arsenal. But if you are into heavy mixing you will need a UAD satellite, but it is still an empowered interface, small and portable as well.
Great sounding convertors and preamps
The overall sound is really good. I'm also loving the super low latency I'm able to achieve with the Apollo Solo. Since there is only DSP slot, I do have to be careful what plugins I use as UAD2 vs. Native....but i'm managing well.
Sounds and works great so far
Lovely little box
Portable, bus powered, well built. Great sound, needless to say.
Let’s me just get to work.
