Is Surround Monitoring available on my first or second generation Apollo?
No. First and second generation Apollo use a digitally controlled analog gain stage on the Monitor L/R outputs, so they can’t be used as a single monitor block.
Does Apollo X support Atmos?
Yes. 16-channel immersive audio monitoring support for Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D, and Sony 360 Reality Audio is available exclusively on Apollo x16.
Does Apollo X support multichannel audio in WDM?
Not at this time. Multichannel WDM audio is folded down by the OS and is played out of Monitor L/R.
Does Apollo X support native surround in Core Audio?
Yes! Simply select your speaker configuration in Audio MIDI Setup.
Can I pan in surround in the UA Console?
No. Channel strips in Console are routed directly to Monitor L/R. To pan in surround, use the DAW.
Can I Flex Route a Console channel strip output directly to a surround output?
No. When a surround mode is enabled, the outputs used for that mode are no longer available for Flex Routes, Alt Speakers or Cue Output mirroring.
Does Apollo X have bass management and room correction?
No. Apollo X features individual speaker trims. Bass management and room correction must be handled at the speaker level.
