    Commercial music studio loves Apollo 16

    by J. Roll . 5 out of 5 stars

    This unit does everything I want. I was not interested in the preamps as I have a 30 channel Trident console from the 1980's and several other preamps. I wanted decent conversion, rock solid stability, UAD plugins in the mix, and occasionally in the monitor / cue mix. I was concerned about latency as I have always had a pre-converter no latency headphone system and I can say this sounds the same, no noticeable delay in the tracking phones. I'm now able to put some cool UA reverbs in the cans when needed, or track through the UA Studer plugs if I want to print saturation. Finally the inserts and flexible outputs are feeding my Hear Technologies system well so I can taylor the monitor options for the artist. Great box, makes working fun!

    074 51 10 Young: Hello, Houston. Sweet 16 has arrived.

    by G. Clasen . 5 out of 5 stars

    Apollo 16 is linked up to a rackmount custom pc, via FireWire from Apollo to thunderbolt on pc using a cable adapter. Mine sits in a limited space rack with a modded velcro'd computer case fan on the back powered by 5.5 volt USB cord creating just enough quiet airflow . Units running at a safe 98 deg.

    Overall the more I use this the more I like it!

    Nice converters & using plugins on the front side this makes my currant gear sound better than ever with no headroom limitations!
    Syncs up to different sample rated projects smoothly! Plays files from browsers or other programs while my DAW is open. no need to close the session just to preview a file!
    VST instruments threw virtual buses work great with extra buffering unchecked in settings

    Apollo 16

    by S. V. Gerard . 5 out of 5 stars

    My historic set up had a very productive workflow and great sound. Both of these have improved with the purchase of the Apollo 16.

    My Bette Jane Studio (www.bettejanestudio.com) in Calgary utilizes a Toft ATB 16 analog board along with a 610 Solo and several other custom preamps. The Apollo 16's no pre-amp approach was perfect for how I want to shape sound on the input side of things. I had been using the UAD Satellite Quad prior to Apollo 16, so the plug ins became much faster and easier to use with the Apollo Thunderbolt card. The sound of these plug ins is exciting.

    The Console application is perfect in my workflow, giving me the opportunity to set up rich cue mixes for recording sessions using the plug ins in monitor mode.

    Excellent System

    by M. Ohman . 5 out of 5 stars

    We switched to the Apollo from another well know and expensive brand of converters - the Apollo is better in every respect. Better sounding, better metering, and fantastic integration with the new Mac Pro.
    The system has worked flawlessly from day one. Thanks!

    by T. Lawrence . 5 out of 5 stars

    As with the Apollo the Apollo 16 sounds amazing! The difference from the interface that was there before in my studio rig was night and day! As soon as everyone heard it , it prompted the other rigs to all be changed to Apollo 16's.

    Mixing my Butt Off!

    As it should be...

    by C. Paschall . 5 out of 5 stars

    I often found myself wondering what happened to gear that just works! That was until I came across the Apollo. From its ease of setup and friendly interface to the unmatched quality of UAD's plug-ins, I'm loving this thing! Haven't looked back!

    just great

    by R. Korf . 5 out of 5 stars

    It´s a new a experience to work with a sound card that simply works with me and has a clear sound without anything else. I´m glad I decided for Apollo and learn a lot about my music on a high technical level that´s giving true response to what I´m doing when I tune in without plug ins - and it sounds good. Imagine what happens to plug in these Compressors and Eq´s it´s making the sound rich and takes away from the feeling of having wasted time and money on something nobody needs. Musical stuff !

    Apollo 16

    by P. Manley . 5 out of 5 stars

    Installed my Apollo 16 and have been using it mastering and mixing the last few days. The first thing I notice is an improved low frequency response. Bass guitar and kick drum are fuller sounding. Overall sound is very pleasant and sonorous. Lots of detail and clarity without being harsh or clinical. Another great thing I've noticed is that there is lots of headroom on the input of the Apollo 16. In the past, I've had to pad down the output of a tape machine when transferring from tape to the computer. The front end of the Apollo can handle the levels of high output tape.
    Thanks UA for making such a rad box! So stoked!!!

    Espetacular!

    by R. Alves Da Silva . 5 out of 5 stars

    já trabalho em estúdio a aproximadamente 12 anos,já passei por diversas plataformas...M-audio 2626,Echo Layla 20,Motu 2408 Mk2 e 2408 Mk3,Pro Tools HD3 com Digidesign 192 i/o...confesso que com a Apollo,senti entrar em um patamar acima.
    Qualidade de conversão AD de alto nível,comparado a maioria dos conversores topo de linha que conheço e já utilizei em outros estúdios além do meu...
    Qualidade DA realmente de destaque,um produto completo,sem falar na altíssima qualidade dos plug-ins UAD.
    sem dúvida um excelente negócio extremamente viável para usuários de plataforma windows 7 assim como eu,além da excelente estabilidade no apple.
    5 estrelas com louvor a esse produto de alto calibre que a universal audio desenvolveu...
