FAQ About This Update:
What is the most important
benefit of this update for Apollo x16 customers?
Customers looking to expand into immersive audio mixing now have a cost-effective monitoring solution with Apollo x16.
How is Apollo x16 different
from other products that support Atmos and Immersive Monitor Modes?
Since you can easily “chain” Thunderbolt Apollo interfaces together, customers can pair an Apollo x16 along with a Twin or x4 to have desktop control of monitor levels, while simultaneously feeding binaural mixdowns to headphones.
Why are you only offering Atmos
support for Apollo x16?
Apollo x16 provides enough analog outputs to support 9.1.6 monitoring.
Why can’t I use Atmos surround
modes on my Apollo x8?
Apollo x8 does not have enough analog outputs to support most of the Atmos surround modes. Even if you used optical digital outputs along with the analog outputs, the outputs would not be reliably time or phase aligned.
What does this mean for current
This is a free update for all Apollo owners. While Atmos Monitoring Modes will only be available to Apollo x16 owners, the new Output Meter Window will be available for all Apollos.
This new update is available now and again, it's free to existing Apollo X16 users! If you have any questions about the Universal Audio Apollo X16 Audio Interface or any of Universal Audio's other products, give us a call! We're here to help!
