Thanks UAD the dream is here.back to the future
Once or the Best sound card ever with 70’s plugins. I had to replace il in the middle of a mix with an apollo 8 and the sound was différent. So I had to do my mix again,but sounds better now and much more power.
Simply the best Audio interface I have owned...the only disappointment is that UAD should have made all the converters identical tp 133db. However the clarity of the X8 is fantastic - its clearer than the Apollo 8 in the high end. I have read about people comparing other interfaces based on superior converters however the X8 does it for me...crystal clear and beautifully designed with extremely low Latency with Thunderbolt 3 - its a clear winner. The routing functionality , ergonomic design, soft relay switching at power on and power down/switch on low latency and its ease of use leads the pack.
I could not imagine using another unit because supposedly its converters are better - because the added value of what I consider to be the best plug ins in the market - help me to craft a mix that reflects how I artistically want to have it reflected...in short the Apollo and UAD products allow me to pain the sonic picture in my head that I want to create....with relative ease...well done UAD and well done Bill Putnam Jr - I have talked to you on the phone personally about your products and service and you and your company have always stepped up to the mark! great service back up and knowledge enable producers to enjoy production - thanks!!
All I need is Apollo x8
I mainly use this device for 4ch. recording. When I need more channels, use TRS and ADAT ports from my main mixer up to 16ch. High Quality Sound and stable. So happy to have one!
Wonderful Interface with great new features
Love my Apollo 8 so when I saw the new x8 I decided to add one to my system. The x8 adds a talkback mic which frees up a channel I used for talkback. Having 6 Cores also Allows for more plug-ins being used on input channels. I love the Unison Plug ins I use 1073's frequently along with the Marshall Plexi, Fender Deluxe and Ampeg SVT when recording tracks. I love the system.
Apollo x one of the best sound cards
I'm very pleased with the new Apollo x8! Now instead of 4 processors, I have 6. You do not need an additional microphone to communicate with the artist, apollo x has a Talkback Microphone. Great sound and good design. UAD is one of the best plugins I've ever seen!
The Apollo X series is great!
I am really happy with the new Apollo X8 and X16. Very clean natural sound, not hyped. Nice to have 6 DSP cores in each Apollo X. Great with the +24dBu headroom setting when going to my analog hardware. The older Apollo´s is still very good, the X ones is even better.
