For anyone who felt that they couldn’t quite justify buying a UAD-2 device because it was all DSP and no I/O, Apollo is a dream come true.
A 1U recording and processing box, the device offers great converters and preamps and access to a fantastic selection of powered plug-ins. For ultimate performance, you can even invest in an optional Thunderbolt card.
Even as a FireWire device, though, Apollo is a winner: in fact, the only thing missing is MIDI I/O.45 Stars
