Important Windows Compatibility Notes

  • Certain Windows settings are necessary for optimum Apollo USB performance. See the Required Settings – Windows Setup article for details.
  • Apollo USB is compatible with Windows 10 64-bit edition and Windows 11. All older Windows operating systems are untested. Although these operating systems may work, they are not supported.
  • Only ASIO and WDM driver modes are compatible. Using ASIO drivers is recommended whenever supported by the audio program.

Incompatible Windows Systems

  • Computers that do not have USB 3 or 4 natively built into the motherboard are not compatible with Apollo USB.
  • Using USB 3 adapters (such as PCIe-to-USB 3 adapter cards) is not compatible when used with USB 2 motherboards.
  • Motherboards and PCIe to USB adapter cards that use USB controller chips from the following manufacturers are not recommended for use with Apollo USB:
    •  AMD
    •  ASMedia†
    •  Etron
    • Fresco Logic
    •  Nvidia
    • Texas Instruments

May be compatible after updating ASMedia drivers

  • Using Apple's Boot Camp to run Windows on Mac computers with Apollo USB and/or UAD-2 devices is an untested configuration.
