Two New Affordable Apollo Solo Interfaces from Universal Audio

Universal Audio today announce two new models for the Apollo range, both feature twin Unison mic preamps and on-board DSP to run input processing for both recording path and mix processing.

The two new units are Apollo Solo (Thunderbolt) and Apollo Solo USB, both use the USB-C type connector  though the Apollo USB connects only through USB 3.1 and requires external power as opposed to Thunderbolt 3 which supplies power also. Both also have a single UAD DSP chip for running real-time processing plug-ins. These two units appear to be designed for those who want to record 2-channels only, or who need a simple, portable system to compliment a larger studio based UAD system.

The Apollo Solo USB is designed for Windows users and so does not come bundled with the new LUNA recording software which is currently Mac only.

Both are priced at $499 US
