Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v8.0 for UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware and Apollo audio interfaces. They say that this powerful new "Apollo Expanded" software provides mix and match operation between Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interfaces, new UAD plug-ins, and a reimagined Console 2.0 software with more than 25 user-requested features. Here's their press release with the details:

UAD Software v8.0 includes Apollo Expanded, allowing users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo DUO, Apollo QUAD, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces to freely combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices -- adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows.

Apollo Expanded also marks the introduction of Console 2.0 software, giving Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo users dynamic new workflow options with more than 25 new user-requested features. Console 2.0 will also be coming to Apollo FireWire interfaces (Mac and Windows) in Fall 2015.

 


Apollo Expanded -- Key Features

  • "Mix and Match" up to four Apollos (any model) over Thunderbolt (Mac)
  • Simple Thunderbolt cable cascading between units
  • Combine up to six UAD-2 devices per system
  • New Console 2.0 -- High-resolution 64-bit software interface for Thunderbolt-equipped Apollos with over 25 new user-requested features
  • New Flex Driver lets users customize Core Audio I/O -- name, save, and share presets for different hardware setups and DAWs
  • Star clocking over Thunderbolt distributes high-quality clock to all Apollos
  • Add an Apollo Twin for desktop monitor control as well as additional DSP and connectivity
