That’s right — from April 1 through June 30th — there’s never been a better time to upgrade to Apollo, the world’s most acclaimed professional recording interfaces for Thunderbolt- and Firewire-based Mac and Windows studios.

Apollo boasts industry-leading A/D and D/A conversion. And with its onboard DSP processing, you can track through authentic UAD analog emulation plug-ins with near-zero latency -- regardless of your audio software’s buffer size, and without taxing your host computer’s CPU.

It’s like having all the processors of a dream vintage analog studio, right in your rack.

No coupons or redemption codes are necessary. The promotional plug-ins will be automatically added to your account once you register your new Apollo 8, 8p, 16 or Apollo FireWire unit.
