Universal Audio Apollo 8 Thunderbolt Interface UAD Quad Mk2 - Including Plugins.
  • Universal Audio Apollo 8 Quad core Thunderbolt Interface Great used condition, this has never skipped a beat. Includes original box and power supply, as well as a genuine Apple Thunderbolt 2 cable. You’ll see in the photos of it mounted, the headphone pots don’t have the small black indication marks on them. These peeled off when I was cleaning the unit up unfortunately. Of course this doesn’t effect the performance/use at all and is purely cosmetic. UAD analog classics plug-in bundle included when registering to your account. Other units in photos not included!
