Now continuing the evolution of the Apollo line of interfaces, Universal Audio announces and releases the new Apollo X series. The Apollo X series interfaces include everything we have come to know and love about the Apollo line, with the additions of Thunderbolt 3 connectivity (with two host ports), that is compatible with both Windows and Mac, as well as increased DSP processing with six core SHARC chips, and alt monitor outs.
