Apollo 16. Flagship Apollo Conversion for Professional Studios.
18-in/20-out Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface with 16 Line-level Inputs, UAD-2 QUAD DSP, and Realtime Analog Classics Plug-in Bundle - Mac/PC
Access the World of UAD Powered Plug-Ins
With exclusive emulations from Neve, Studer, Manley, API, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, and more,†it’s like having an endless analog studio, in a single rack space. And unlike competing interfaces, these DSP-powered plug-ins are also available in your DAW for mixing.
A Scalable 64 x 64 Thunderbolt System for Professional Studios
Apollo 16 is the ideal interface for professional studios, offering 16 x 16 analog I/O on DB-25 connections — twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p models — plus L/R monitor outputs and AES/EBU digital I/O. This makes it perfect for pairing with mixing consoles or other outboard processors at the center of a modern studio.
When it’s time to expand, Apollo 16’s dual built-in Thunderbolt ports allow you to add up to three additional Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices* — for a networked system with 64 x 64 simultaneous analog I/O and 32 cores of UAD plug-in processing. Apollo 16 also provides seamless integration with previous generation Apollos over Thunderbolt.
Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD-2 devices over Thunderbolt, adding DSP and I/O as needed
Next-Generation A/D and D/A Conversion
The original Apollo interface quickly became a gold standard among modern music producers and engineers, tracking literally hundreds of hit records. Apollo 16 improves upon this studio standard with completely redesigned, class-leading A/D and D/A conversion — offering 2 dB better A/D and 8 dB better D/A dynamic range versus the original Apollo. Tuned through an obsessive auditioning of converters and double-blind listening tests, Apollo 16’s sound quality is extremely open and natural, rivaling or exceeding dedicated mastering-grade converters costing thousands more.
