recording and mixing
paolofromitaly, 04.01.2020
I use it as my main audio interface for mixing, but I bought it for occasional recordings, with the intention to record through the UA unison plugins. The console application gives great flexibility. The only thing that left me wishing is that it has 6 DSPs: It might be enough to record, but in my opinion this unit should have had 8 DSPs. I always end up running out of processing. For that I had to buy a UAD satellite.
Agreed, price-wise the interface is not on the cheap side, plus adding DSP power requires to shell out for even more. But then consider this: every now and again, I use other brands of plugins, and invariably when I replace that with a UA plugin it just works better 99% of time. So if you only need inputs to record, I reckon you have options with other products. But if you also care to get world-class sounding plugins there is no doubt you need to go UA products.

Ships with Firmware that is not compatible with PC
JustinF67, 27.12.2019
Completely useless so far. It seems as though Apollo's need a firmware upgrade to work on PC's and these upgrades can only be installed via Mac - so if you don't have one, tough luck! You couldn't make this up!
From everything I've read online, these units are superb - if you have a Mac. They forgot to let the user update the firmware with a PC making it 1000% useless.

Thomann Comment: You need a firmware update to use the interface on PC's!

Super interface!
Bichon, 18.12.2018
J'ai remplacé mon ancienne interface en firewire par cette nouvelle X8P.

Comme toujours l'interface arrive très bien emballée et bien protégée de la part de thomann.

Je l'utilise sur un mac en TB2 avec un adaptateur 3 vers 2. Pas de soucis de stabilité.

Les convertisseurs ont vraiment gagnés en qualité, les line in en db25 sont branchées sur mon rack de préamps format 500 et par rapport à l'ancienne j'ai gagné en qualité de conversion.

8 préamps avec les plug qui vont bien, pratique quand vous êtes en nomade et que vous ne voulez pas bouger vos préamps.

Comme toujours un bon nombre de circuits casque, un tb intégré et un routing super facile avec la console.

L'horloge à aussi évoluée en qualité je regrète juste qu'il y ai toujours qu'une seule entrée/sortie adat.

Plus de puissance de calcul pour les plug donc également bien pratique.

J'ai eu un petit bundle de plug à l'achat qui était fort agréable.

Pas grand chose à dire d'autre, c'est une interface sans surprises qui marche mieux par rapport à mon ancienne. Donc si vous hésitiez à faire évoluer votre ancienne installation, allez y les yeux fermés.

Petite chose, elle dégage pas mal de chaleur donc veillez bien à ne pas boucher sa partie haute dans vos racks.

Apollo x8p unter Windows
MaDproF, 17.10.2018
...mein gröstes Bedenken war Thunderbolt III + Windoof ... was soll isch sagen, funzt auf Anhieb...gestehe, ich war erstaunt...(Treiberinstalation,Firmwareupdate,etc. vorausgesetzt)
Ich habe sie jetzt seit ca 10Tagen permanent im einsatz mit "Achtung" 32 Samples unter Windows!!!
Erneutes erstaunen, in dieser Zeit kein Absturz,Bluescreen etc...läuft !!!
Sound ist sehr gut,fein aufgelöste Höhen,gutes Dynamikverhalten, eigentlich alles genauso wie man es sich wünscht.Verarbeitung ist auch grundsolide und sehr wertig.
Das einzige was ein wenig nervt ist das man immer alle UAD Plugins im Insert bzw UnisonInsert hat/sieht. Soll heissen es gibt keine optische Rückmeldung welches PlugIn aktiviert ist und welche nicht,was zu einer "nein will ich nicht" wegClick Orgie führen kann.Vor allem weil es viele Plugins in bis zu 3Ausführungen gibt.Ansonsten Top Gerät würde isch wieder kaufen (wenn ich dann mal wieder Geld hab ^^)

Pro: Sound !!!
Verarbeitung
Flexibilität
Sound der PlugIns

Contra: kein Thunderbolt III kabel dabei
keine optische Rückmeldung welche Plugins aktiviert sind (try+error)
sonst nix
