The Universal Audio Apollo X6 is a 16x22 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with Realtime UAD Hexa Core processor and the Realtime Analog Classics Plus plug-in bundle.
An Outstanding Thunderbolt Audio Interface
The Universal Audio Apollo X6 uses brand new class-leading audio converters paired with an all-new analogue circuit for ultra-pristine audio. Offering an impressive 129dB of dynamic range and -118dB THD+N, the new Apollo x6 sounds open and incredibly natural and stands its grounds against dedicated audio converters in any class.
Realtime UAD HEXA Core Processing
Furthermore, the Apollo x6 features as standard six DSP chips, delivering 50% more UAD plug-in processing power than previous Apollo interfaces. Whether you record or mix, you can now accommodate bigger sessions with more UAD plug-in counts.
Unison Mic Preamps
With two Unison preamps, the Apollo X6 lets you track through exact emulations of Neve, API, Manley, SSL and Universal audio plug-ins in real-time. Unison Technology mimics all the details of selected hardware mic preamps, valve or solid-state, including input impedance, gain stage and component level circuit. Combined with UAD's Unison-ready plug-ins, it provides unparalleled realism.
Mix in Surround and +24u Operation
In addition to the two preamps, the x6 includes six analogue inputs and outputs giving you the opportunity to mix in surround sound, ideal for people working for film or video games and with a selectable +24dBu operation, it works perfectly with professional mixing consoles and pro audio equipment.
Build a Scalable Recording System over Thunderbolt
As your studio needs grow, the X6 can be further augmented in a powerful recording powerhouse with 8-channel of ADAT to work with external mic preamps like the 4-710 or by connecting up to four Apollo via the Thunderbolt 3 connectors which are also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and 2.
