UAD Apollo X8P
This is my 3rd UAD Card I started with the Silverface then a Apollo 8 Mk2 and Now the X8P.
From the start the 2 X DB25 / Line IN and Line Out on top of the 8 XLR pre is really Nice specially If you are using a Patchbay. The 6 Sharks give enough power for tracking with some legendary Hardware Emulation FX but also as Unison Pre. Read more
With the Thunderbolt III bandwidth and the 6 Sharks I finally Moved from 44.1 /48 to 96 KHz and the result was there right away. For me the move was painless everything work from the start in both Pro Tools 2019.6 and Cubase 10.5 Pro.
I bought my Apollo during the November/december sell so I`m waiting for the Free Octo (8 Core) satellite that will add a lot of power for Mixing.
Side note the resell value of my old card was really nice !
