The Universal Audio Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 Heritage Edition Audio Interface is the world’s finest Thunderbolt 3-powered desktop recording audio interface for Mac and Windows — delivering class‑leading audio conversion, two Unison mic preamps, and a suite of onboard UAD plug-ins for recording album‑quality results, in real time.

This compact 2×4 interface starts with esteemed Apollo A/D and D/A conversion to sonically outperform anything in its class. And with its Unison technology and built-in UAD‑2 processing, you can record through classic studio tools including the UA 610‑B Tube Preamp & EQ, LA‑2A and 1176 compressors, and more — with near‑zero latency.

Featuring 5 premium UAD titles— including complete plug-in Collections of our award-winning Teletronix and UA 1176 compressors, Pultec EQs, UA 610 mic preamps, and more — Apollo Heritage Edition gives you a curated analog studio, right out of the box.

Unison Technology for Stunning Mic and Guitar Preamp Emulations

Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3’s Unison technology gives you the tone, touch, and “feel” of the world’s most sought‑after preamps. These include the bundled UA 610‑B Tube Preamp, plus authentic mic preamp emulations from Neve and API, plus guitar amp emulations from Fender and Marshall — complete with their signature impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and component‑level circuit behaviors.*

The secret to Unison is its hardware‑software integration between the Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3’s mic preamps and its onboard UAD-2 processing. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo’s Console software, and it physically reconfigures Apollo’s impedance and gain staging — giving you the classic tube and transformer sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps and guitar amps.

*Apollo Solo includes the “Realtime Analog Classics” UAD plug‑in bundle. Other UAD plug-ins sold separately.

Create with a Fast, Natural Workflow in LUNA

The Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 is the ideal entry point to LUNA, UA’s groundbreaking music production application. Whether you’re exploring the analog sounds and workflow of Neve summing and Studer tape Extensions or creating with inspiring LUNA Instruments like Moog Minimoog and Ravel grand piano, LUNA transforms Apollo Solo into a fully‑integrated recording system. Mac only.

A Full Suite of Classic Studio Processing Onboard

Right out of the box, the Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 provides a suite of incredible analog emulation plug‑ins including the world’s only authentic Teletronix LA‑2A and 1176LN compressors, Pultec EQs, and much more. From the tube warmth of the Pultec EQ on guitars, to the gentle limiting of the LA‑2A on vocals, your recordings will take a giant leap forward in rich, sonically complex analog sound.

Access the World of UAD Powered Plug‑Ins

Beyond the included Realtime Analog Classics plug‑ins, the Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 lets you tap into the full library of award‑winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins — including vintage EQs, Compressors, Reverbs, Tape Machines, Auto‑Tune and more — in real time. With exclusive emulations from Neve, Ampex, Lexicon, Fender, Antares, Moog, and more,* the creative possibilities are nearly endless.

*Apollo Solo includes the “Realtime Analog Classics” UAD plug‑in bundle. Other UAD plug-ins sold separately.

Vintage Guitar and Bass Amps

For guitarists and bassists, the Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3 includes Unison technology on its front panel instrument input — giving you access to dead-on emulations of amps like the Fender ’55 Tweed Deluxe, Ampeg B‑15N Bass Amplifier, and the included Marshall Plexi Classic — all available at near-zero latency for songwriting and recording.

Best-in-Class Headphone Amplifier

The Apollo Solo Thunderbolt 3’s onboard headphone output is louder and punchier, with lower noise and flatter frequency response versus any interface in its class. This means you can confidently track and mix using headphones, knowing you’re hearing every sonic detail.

Ready to Go

With its robust all-metal construction and bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 operation, Apollo Solo is the only “clutter‑free” portable audio interface that truly delivers album‑quality results. It’s like having a virtual analog studio that fits onto any desktop, and easily travels in your laptop bag.
