Meet the Most Powerful Desktop Apollo Yet!
Apollos have always sounded great, but the Apollo x4's AD/DA conversion takes it to the next level. When they were designing the latest generation of Apollos, UA engineers auditioned the latest leading-edge AD/DA technology, ultimately pairing elite-class 24-bit/192kHz converters with overhauled analog circuitry. The result is an ultra-pristine signal path with 127dB dynamic range. Dive in, and you'll hear for it yourself — the Apollo x4's AD/DA rivals any high-end standalone converter on the market.
12-in/18-out, 24-bit/192kHz, Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface with 4-core QUAD Core Processor, Elite-class AD/DA Conversion, 4 Unison Preamps, Talkback, and Realtime Analog Classics Plus Plug-in Package - Mac/PC AAX 64, VST, AU, RTAS
Thunderbolt: ultra-low latency and unrivaled bandwidth
Thunderbolt is one of the most important technologies to impact audio production in years, and UA was one of the first to adopt it. Thanks to its blazing-fast connectivity, Thunderbolt offers lower latency and greater stability than USB or FireWire, clocking in with the speed and ultra-fast performance of a PCI Express system. In fact, the Apollo x4's Thunderbolt 3 connection runs projects with high track counts at latencies of less than 2ms! On top of that, up to four Apollo interfaces can be networked over Thunderbolt to add fast, high-bandwidth I/O and DSP to your studio. You don't even need a brand-new computer — the Apollo x4's built-in Thunderbolt 3 port is backward-compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2 Macs (does not support Thunderbolt 1 or 2 on Windows — adapter sold separately).
