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!
