Default Apollo Twin Mk2 excellent converters

Basically it ainīt big news I know.
Anyway I wanted to give some people a short heads up if they are looking for a new, small interface for PT12.

I have installed a small state of the art home recording set up for a friend and guitarist using the new UA Apollo
Twin Mk2 for the audio interface and I really was surprised how fabulously this little interface was sounding.

The silver Mk1 series became famous for itīs quality but the Mk2 series is definitely a step up.
As always the UA drivers and software were working flawlessly with PT12 and any other audio applications.

So, this is another recommendation for a small, high quality audio interface for people who donīt need more
than two mic pres (you can extend it via 8 ADAT channels of course) but still want serious pro audio quality.

Finally let me say that you donīt have to buy it for the UA plugins which might be an interesting option but much
more important for the outstanding A/D-D/A converters, mic pres and the well working, stable drivers/software.
Means these little boxes are great even if you are not up to using many UA plugins. They are just working more
reliably and sounding better than anything else in this price range from my personal experience.

From (for people who do not intend to use many UA plugins but want to benefit from the high end converters etc.)

or
https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ApolloTDmkII
to (capable of handling a more serious amount of UA plugins)
https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ApolloTQmkII

I have nothing to do with UA personally except have been using their interfaces for a certain amount of time successfully.
Have just become a convinced user of these boxes (besides the UA plugins which are certainly nice ones).
Itīs just because of the audio quality of it and the stability and reliability of their drivers on Mac (now macOS 10.12.6).

This recommendation is based on Mac systems and the Apollo Twin Mk2 Thunderbolt models.

I'm waiting to have a ATMk2 Duo delivered Wednesday. I'm replacing a original Apogee Duet I bought in 2006. Looking forward to Apollo Twin. The Duet served me well for 11 years.
