Apollo Twin X allows musicians and producers to easily track, overdub, and mix with elite-class A/D and D/A conversion, two Unison-enabled preamps, and DUO Core realtime UAD plug-in processing — all in a desktop Thunderbolt 3 audio interface for Mac and Windows.

Built upon UA’s 60-year heritage of audio craftsmanship, Apollo Twin X confidently outperforms everything in its class with 127 dB D/A dynamic range, along with an included bundle of UAD analog emulation plug-ins and LUNA Recording System, giving you a fully-stocked analog studio, right on your desktop.

THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT COME WITH A THUNDERBOLT 3 CABLE. 

Please note, it needs to be a Thunderbolt 3 cable. A normal USB-C cable or Apple charging cable will not work.  If you already own one, feel free to use it.  If you don't own one, you need this cable below to use this product:
