Apollo x6 gives creators running project and bedroom studios the same professional analog tones heard on your favorite records. With elite-class conversion and HEXA Core UAD plug-in processing, Apollo x6 is the only interface that lets you record through preamps from Neve, API, Manley, and more — with near-zero latency — giving you professional sound in a sleek rackmount Thunderbolt 3 audio interface.

Apollo x6’s proven A/D and D/A conversion gives you the same elite-class sound heard on thousands of hit songs and hundreds of chart-topping albums. Widely praised for its open, natural sound, Apollo's converters give you the perfect palette to paint your sonic colors.

With its two onboard Unison™ preamps, Apollo x6 is the only interface that lets you track in realtime through preamps and channel strips from Neve, Manley, API, SSL, and dozens more, giving you the same rich analog texture as the hardware used on decades of iconic music.

Right out of the box, Apollo gives you album-ready tones in realtime with the included UA 610-B Tube Preamp & EQ, Fairchild compressors, amps from Marshall and Ampeg, and more. But only Apollo lets you tap into the entire UAD plug-in library, giving you the proven hit-making sounds of Ocean Way Studios, Capitol Chambers, and over 100 more.

Designed for seamless integration with Apollo, LUNA gives you big analog studio sound — in realtime — using a host of built-in features and extensions from API console modeling to genuine Neve summing and integrated Studer tape.

Link up to four Apollos for 156 channels of premium I/O as your studio grows, and control it all from your desktop using Apollo Twin or x4.
