This premium interface ships direct to you and is typically not in stock in our Smyrna store.
The Universal Audio Apollo x6 Heritage Edition is the perfect interface for electronic musicians and post-production pros. In addition to all the benefits of the interface, the special Heritage Edition adds a diverse package of premium UAD plug-ins at an unprecedented value—they could total over $2,400 if purchased separately.
Apollo x6 has two Unison-enabled mic preamps that sound and behave like the world's most sought-after designs. The UA Apollo x6 is a sleek 16x22 Thunderbolt 3 rackmount interface. It has the tone, feel and real-time workflow of classic analog gear. It also delivers the power and performance to boost your workflow.
With HEXA Core processing, the x6 extends the limits of your plug-in processing. It features a built-in talkback mic, 5.1 surround sound monitoring* and selectable +24dBu operation. This makes it compatible with pro mixing consoles and other high-end pro audio gear.
Premium UAD Plug-Ins—Over $2,400 Value
Apollo x6 Heritage Edition comes with 10 premium award-winning plug-in titles valued at over $2,400—including the full suite of UA's Teletronix, 1176 and Fairchild compressors, Helios Type 69, V76 and UA 610 mic preamps, all Pultec EQs, Oxide Tape Recorder and Pure Plate Reverb. These premium Heritage Edition titles are in addition to the Apollo x6's included Realtime Analog Classics Plus bundle, giving you the most accurate library of classic analog emulations included with any professional audio interface. A hallmark feature of Apollo is its Realtime UAD Processing, letting you run the full library of UAD plug-ins at near-zero latency.
Elite Audio Conversion and Enhanced Stereo Image
The x6 improves on the previous Apollo interfaces by pairing elite 24-bit/192kHz converters with analog circuitry. This results in a pristine signal path. UA x6 has 129dB of dynamic range and -119dB of total harmonic distortion. Its natural-sounding audio rivals any high-end converter on the market. It also has Dual-Crystal clocking for stunningly low jitter. That means pure recordings and excellent stereo imaging.
Two Unison-enabled Preamps That Emulate Classic Gear
The UA x6 audio interface has two Unison-enabled mic preamps. When used with the Apollo Console software, these preamps imitate classic analog preamps. The result, your recordings will have the tone and sound of Neve, API, Manley, SSL and more. To achieve this, the preamp talks with the Console software and physically changes. It models the physical features of the software preamp and mimics it perfectly.
The Speed of Thunderbolt 3 With Cascading Connectivity
Like all of the Apollo x interfaces, the x6 looks sleek and modern. It has front panel controls, monitoring functions and a backlit metering display. It boasts two Thunderbolt 3 inputs for blazing-fast speed and low latency. The two inputs also allow you to link up to four Apollos together to add more I/O and DSP.
