    "home studio interface"...

    by R. Tulzhenko . 2 out of 5 stars

    So, No Routing, No AES, No MIDI, No Master, No Playback control!, Only 2 Aux Buses, No Separate Monitoring.. And many-many other Problems... Only InputOutput interface, 4 pre's, and UAD Card...
    Need to Hard Work on it!

    only real-time for Plugins

    by W. Harald Schmidt . 2 out of 5 stars

    The apollo is a very sexy and well build interface with nice preamps and good and very good plug-Ins. UA are also very good in making mony and in marketing (499,-- Euro for that little pice of thunderbolt option card).
    But what is realy worth: Apollo got lousy routing options. - Real time UAD Processing is only ment for their console, a tool that can be used without DAWs. But you cannot use anything realtime inside your DAWs and you cannot combine the real time plug-Ins with external hardware because of little routing options). A realy bad thing is that the support workers cannot tell you if or when this issue is going to be solved - unbelievable but true...
    ...But they call it a non compromising Soundcard :-))
    A Satellite with Preamps..

    Apollo

    by W. Greene . 2 out of 5 stars

    I really am new to the console application concept so I'm on a learning curve. But so far I love the sound of the Uad plugins even though I only have the one's that were included. They sound great. Recording or Monitoring with Plugins no latency Great. The only complaint I have is I had to return the 1st Apollo-Quad because the Preamp selector wouldn't work. It would not depress. Quality Control. Great Unit so far. Would like to be able to rename the inputs in the console to match the inputs in Pro Tools though.. W.Greene

    Impressive interface that falls short

    by A. Dhillon . 2 out of 5 stars

    I was very impressed with the Apollo at first glance. The quality of the preamps/converters/UA Plugs, etc. However, I have had issues with the dreaded "no devices found" error. I am on my 2nd unit, and I have used it for a week with the same issue.

    When/if this gets figured out, I will say otherwise - this interface keeps me intrigued. The sound quality and ease of use is marvelous.

    Laptops NOT allowed

    by J. Tamarit . 2 out of 5 stars

    It's incredible !! a 95% of people is making music with a laptop and I can't undeerstand why Universal Audio hate laptops?
    Now the sound gears industry try to cover all the possibilities and compatibilities (USB, MAC, FW, internet, iphones)
    Why the only possibililty for laptops users is to use the express card for UAD plugins?
    Why i'ts impossible to use Apollo with laptops buildt-in firewire ports?
    Why Universal Audio spend so much time and money working on a new gear for a 5% of people? what about the other 95%?
    I really can't understand what is the point.
    Universal Audio please try to remember: the FUTURE IS NOW

    Apollo quad

    by F. Raya . 2 out of 5 stars

    The apollo is a normal interface the AD/DA are similar like a digi 002, nothing fantastic, no control-surface for the money, no more IO, to much money for what it offers.
    but if you have good pluggins not have to worry, Do not need a apollo

    Great Concept but VERY BUGGY

    by S. Fox . 2 out of 5 stars

    i recently purchased a UAD card with many plugins so Apollo made sense for me, however ive been very annoyed by all the problems it has with Firewire. Even after dealing with tech support, not a session goes by when it deauthorizes plugins i purchased either on my PCI card or the apollo. Hopefully, tech support will help me?? But after doing research on this its a common issue....
