I've been saying for months that I'll get around to checking out the Universal Audio range of audio interfaces as it's little wonder that the whole team at Pro Tools Expert between them own some form of UA interface and swear by them.
I've been toying with the idea of selling my Pro Tools HDX system and Mac Pro cheese grater for the latest Mac Pro and Universal Apollo Thunderbolt 2 interface. Studio One Expert team member Paul Drew recently swapped out his HDX system for a new UA Apollo as it give him the HDX thing but in a more music creation kind of way.
Then yesterday our friend Richard at Eastwood Sound & Vision let me know about an incredible deal on offer through to the end of the year on Universal Apollo interfaces. Buy any one in the range of rack mounted units and get a free UAD-2 Quad Satellite DSP Accelerator. The DSP junkie in me is now seriously considering an early "business" Christmas present.

If you would like to get an idea of what the Apollo interfaces could do, James Ivey recently made a video using the new Apollos in a band recording scenario and was very impressed with the workflow, sound quality and ease of use.
