“The Apollo interface put classic analog sound
into recording studios worldwide.
Now it’s expanding into a full Thunderbolt system.”
The announcement of Apollo Expanded is, without a doubt, the biggest evolution for the award-winning Apollo interface since its introduction in 2012. Apollo Expanded provides Mac users “mix and match” operation between Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo audio interfaces, as well as new plug-in types and Console 2.0, which features over 25 new user-requested features.
Now, users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo DUO, Apollo QUAD, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces can harness up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices – adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows.
Apollo Expanded also lets Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo users enjoy:
- Simple Thunderbolt cable cascading between units
- Powerful new Flex Driver allowing users to configure Core Audio I/O – name, save, and share presets for different hardware setups and DAWs
- Star clocking over Thunderbolt, distributing high-quality clock to all Apollos
- The ability to add an Apollo Twin for desktop monitor control as well as additional DSP and connectivity
