Universal Audio Apollo 16 Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface OPEN BOX

This unit has been opened in our store to show a customer like you, other wise it is BRAND NEW, full factory warranty.


The new Apollo 16 is an elegant update to UA’s premium audio interface — delivering enhanced sound with the tone, feel, and flow of analog recording. Perfect for professional studios, this 18 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 interface offers twice the analog connectivity of the Apollo 8/8p — making it ideal for pairing with mixing consoles and outboard processors.

Built on genuine UA analog design and next-generation A/D and D/A conversion, Apollo 16 also features powerful UAD-2 QUAD Core processing, letting you run the full library of UAD Powered Plug-Ins in real time. With sonic performance that surpasses anything in its class, Apollo 16 rivals modular converters costing twice the price, in a sleek, powerful new package.

Key Features
  • Next-generation Apollo A/D and D/A conversion for professional music production
  • 16 x 16 analog I/O via DB-25 connectors — ideal for pairing with mixing consoles, outboard preamps, etc.
  • Onboard UAD-2 QUAD Core DSP allows Realtime UAD Processing
  • 18 x 20 Thunderbolt 2 audio interface for Mac with powerful Console 2.0 software control
  • Cascade up to 4 Apollo interfaces and 6 UAD devices total over Thunderbolt (Mac)
  • Includes “Realtime Analog Classics Plus” UAD plug-in bundle
  • World class UA analog design, superior components, and premium build quality

World-Class Sound with Superior
Apollo A/D and D/A Conversion
The original Apollo, introduced in 2012, quickly became a gold standard among modern music producers and engineers — it now counts many of the world’s top artists as users. Apollo 16 improves upon the original Apollo’s sound quality with completely redesigned, class-leading A/D and D/A conversion — giving you increased dynamic range and even lower THD.

Building upon a 50-year legacy of circuit design, UA engineers started with obsessive auditioning of the latest converters, pairing them with completely redesigned analog circuitry. Confirmed by extensive double-blind listening tests, the result is 2 dB better A/D and 8 dB better D/A dynamic range versus the original Apollo — making Apollo 16 the measurable class leader.

Realtime UAD Plug-In Processing for
Tracking, Mixing, and Mastering
Imagine having a classic analog studio, in single rack space. Apollo 16 lets you record through UAD Powered Plug-Ins — including vintage EQs, compressors, reverbs, tape machines and more — at near-zero latency, regardless of your audio software buffer size. With award-winning UAD plug-ins from Ampex, Lexicon, Neve, Manley, Roland, SSL, Studer, and more,* Apollo 16 serves up authentic analog tone and warmth.
The key to its analog sound is onboard UAD-2 QUAD DSP Processing, which powers the UAD plug-ins while reducing the strain on your host computer.
Apollo 16 comes bundled with “Realtime Analog Classics Plus” suite of UAD plug-ins. From there, you can choose from a vast and expanding collection of plug-ins in the UA Online Store
Improved Monitoring and Workflow
Unique among 16 channel converters, Apollo 16 features a dedicated Monitor knob right on the front panel. This knob is also controllable from software, a connected Apollo Twin, or can be bypassed for connecting the Monitor outputs to an external monitor controller. Standard interface settings like Clock Source, Sample Rate, and Host connectivity are displayed at all times as well.
Expand Your System
Thanks to Apollo Expanded software, users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo 8, Apollo 8p, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces can combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as your studio grows. Apollo Expanded also provides seamless integration with previous generation Apollos over Thunderbolt.
