I created a short first impressions video of the new Apollo Twin thunderbolt interface which I run on my UP5-TH Hackintosh. So far I absolutely love it and have had zero problems, the thing is built like a tank too.

Thanks you for this review, I really like the design & features of this audio interface. So bad it is only Thunderbolt as my hack doesn't have one.

But I sure will do a hack with one GA Z87X UD7 TH or other Thunderbolt fitted board, when I'll have the money to!

The twin is the only reason I want to go to Thunderbolt, happy it runs perfectly for you :)

Hey mate!

Great first look at the Apollo Twin - quick question/clarification: did you get the single or duo? You might want to add a bit of clarity about the 2 options for those not familiar with this new interface & let us know which one you're sporting.
:headbang:

In fact, if you have a moment, please add this interface in a new post about your findings (and maybe even reshare the video) over here: Confirmed Audio Interfaces

The guy who started the thread will then add the Apollo Twin (solo/duo) to the master compatibility list in the OP.

Cheers!

I've had an Apollo Twin Duo for the last few days and it is working well.

I do think that the console app is a bit rubbish due to its limited routing, but I am comparing it to RME's totalmixFX.

Sorry only just realised the activity on this thread, that's half term for you. I got the solo (one dsp) instead of the duo (two dsps) purely for financial reasons and I do have a Satellite Duo as well. If you only want to use the plugins for tracking through the console app then the solo is probably ok but it's a bit like crack and you will soon want more !!!!

I completely agree. I have the apollo Quad and two sets of studio monitors and theres no way to switch between the tow pairs with ease.Also when i use this card with my macbook pro and cinema display, my fans go bonkers!!:crazy::crazy::crazy:
