The Apollo is truly brilliant, if it weren't for the fact Universal Audio let all PC users on Protools down. Were is the AAX support we were PROMISED for last year? I made this my main audio interface, and cannot use PT11.
We were reassured this was a priority. Yeah, it is a sick JOKE. They release new plugins, new hardware, and now there is no reference to be seen to any news on what the situation is. Even the original posts have been buried away on the site.
Shame on you Universal Audio. You have great product, but your attitude truly stinks
This is a one star review because of your driver, which is extremely buggy and unstable.
This review will change to five star if you make the driver rock solid.
It seems that your main concern is selling plugins.
Well, my concern is a reliable piece of equipment that will record music without thinking about technical details.
The sound quality of this unit is great. But the digital mixer is poorly designed and bug-ridden. Mixing elements (volume, mute, link) would stop working on random channels without an error message for no apparent reason. The DSP module failed almost constantly. The mixer is 'form over function'. Very poor functionality (unacceptably so) when compared to competitors. Monitoring through plug-ins is not useful if you can't set up flexible routing options for real world tracking.
The Apollo simply wasn't fit for purpose. This is the second Universal Audio product that I have returned (the other being a Solo610 which was fried from the get-go).
Bought it a few months ago, on the promise of windows drivers. Had to invest in an old MacPro to make it run (not well, bloqued on firewire 400).
Now where are the Windows drivers promised for this summer?
Apollo is garbage on windows - basically a useless BRICK - do not buy it - complete and utter waste of money
Also UAD support is beyond lame - you will wait 2 weeks for some cut-n-paste BS reply - they dont care - terrible company that makes garbage products
I bought my device has cause of the promises for this summer! Now my UAD is taken the dust for nothing! My device takes the dust without I that can use him(it)! I regret having invested(surrounded) on rumours that you given
