UA’s new gold-standard of conversion

Universal Audio have outdone themselves yet again, with a new elite-class converter design that features a whopping 129 dB of dynamic range and an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of -118 THD+N. The Apollo x16 features an astounding 133 dB of dynamic range and a signal-to-noise ratio of -129 dB – the best of any integrated audio interface on the market!

The gorgeous clarity and punchy, open tone of Universal Audio’s Apollo line has been heard on countless Grammy-winning albums, and the new elite-class 24-bit/192kHz converters and fine-tuned analog circuitry continue the Apollo legacy. The Apollo’s class-leading sound is the perfect blank canvas for shaping your next hit with Universal Audio’s award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins.

A full suite of classic analog processing on board

The UA Apollo x16 includes a suite of amazing analog emulation plug-ins, including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA-2A, 1176LN, and Fairchild compressors, the legendary Pultec EQs, and UA’s own legendary 610-B Tube Preamp. Developed by UA’s world-renowned team of algorithm engineers, Realtime Analog Classics plug-ins set the benchmark by which other hardware emulation plug-ins are judged. The new HEXA Core processor with 6 UAD DSP chips allows you to record, mix and master with UAD’s award-winning plug-ins with near-zero latency and 50% more processing power than previous Apollos!

A Scalable 64 x 64 Thunderbolt 3 System for Professional Studios

Apollo 16 is designed for professional studios (and ambitious amateurs), providing 16 x 16 analog I/O on DB-25 connections, which is twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo x8/x8p models. It also features L/R monitor outputs and AES/EBU digital I/O, enabling you to integrate it with mixing consoles or other outboard processors.

To accommodate a growing studio, Apollo 16’s dual built-in Thunderbolt 3 ports allow you to add up to three additional Apollos and up to six additional UAD-2 devices for a networked system with 64 x 64 simultaneous analog I/O and 32 cores of UAD plug-in processing. Apollo x16 also provides seamless integration with other Apollo interfaces via Thunderbolt 3, or with previous generations via a Thunderbolt 1 or 2 adapter (sold separately).
