UA Apollo Interfaces Get Thunderbolt 3 Connectivity


Universal Audio has announced the Thunderbolt 3 Option Card for Apollo rackmount interfaces is now shipping worldwide. The card is compatible with Intel’s new Thunderbolt 3 technology on the latest Mac and Windows computers.

Universal Audio CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. told us, “We’re really excited to provide integrated Thunderbolt 3 connectivity across our Apollo rackmount product line. We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Intel to create rock-solid Thunderbolt 3 connectivity on Mac and Windows for Apollo that enables customers to get the most out of their audio workstation environment.”

The user-installable Thunderbolt 3 Option Card includes two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and easily slides into the expansion bay of Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 MkII audio interfaces. Bus power is provided to all downstream Thunderbolt 3 peripherals, allowing music producers to connect devices in series with the Apollo interface — including additional Apollo or Arrow interfaces, UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt devices, hard drives, monitor displays, and more.
