    Next UAD/Apollo Product Ideas?

    So with 2015 NAMM behind us and the announcement of Apollo expanded I wonder what UA has in store for us next year? I would venture to guess with the ability now to chain all of your Apollo devices together that we might see a new piece of hardware from UA in the future that could do the same? But what is missing in the Apollo category to fill this void? I for one hope it is some type of thunderbolt hardware controller/summing mixer hybrid which seamlessly communicates with Console 2.0 for hands on control. It also should have MIDI and USB I/O to facilitate control over all those great UAD plugins (more hands on control). I'm sure something like this would not be cheap, but seems like the next logical step in the evolution in the Apollo series. Please share your thoughts!

    I put a similar post out last week - not sure how alligned it is with your request - see link and actual request below:

    2015 UAD Midi and Controller Features

    2015 UAD Midi and Controller Features
    Well with March Expanded release we know we are not getting midi control. Kind of funny and awkward on one of the expanded video walk-throughs the journalist asks the uad rep if midi is part of the release and an awkward "for the future" type answer. So why don't we help UAD out and list out exactly what we want.

    Here are some of my requests in addition to basic midi control of console app

    UAD branded Hardware midi controller with:

    Standard faders and pans and buttons for console

    UAD plugin parameter control

    DAW integration so you can control standard DAW mix controls, transport controls and UAD plugins.

    Some useful examples - softube console, novation remote sl II midi controllers including automap that auto recognizes plugins including uad and logic X remote ipad app.

    Business point - can't help but think that this controller would really put the hooks into uad plugin customer including me. (i.e. I like real time zero latency, best quality plugin emulation now with integrated tactile controller I am always going with uad)

    I would hate to se fewer UA plugs in favor of new ventures, on the other hand maybe UA has grown in manpower to be able to expand ?

    If not I would rather have more quality OWS-like plugs and Apollo's with more DSP for tracking. Maybe add dsp to the optional TB card.

    Apollo Octo, would be a nice start, and a logical next step.

    Interface with more Unison Preamps.
    Farm0 and billybk1 like this.
    MBP 2.0 GHz quadi7, 16Gb RAM, OSX10.9.5
    Apollo Duo, Logic 9.1.8, LPX 10.1.1, Live 8.4.1

    Yeah, we are somewhat on the same page I think, but in addition to the midi control functionality I would like it to have some audio functionality built in as well which seems logical because UA still does make hardware
