• A processing powerhouse


    With single and dual fader options, Apollo can squeeze in more faders into a single footprint than any other console, and its integrated 8192² router provides total network flexibility. Apollo provides unsurpassed processing power, with unrivalled resources of up to 1020 channel processing paths, 128 program busses, 96 IFB/Track outputs and 48 auxes.

    Why you need an Apollo

    Apollo does everything you need and still has resources left . With no DSP sharing, all facilities are available on all channels at all times – that means full dedicated resources are always available at all times on every single channel.

    Its soft flexible control surface allows the operator to reconfigure it between jobs so it is always familiar and offers the same sense of assurance associated with one-knob per function control.

  • Flexible


    Apollo has a flexible and intuitive control surface which changes colour depending on function. Soft panels allow the operator to reconfigure the console to reflect a variety of operating setups, and extensive use of colour across TFTs and colour-changing rotaries provides practical and elegant feedback with one-knob per function control.



    Apollo provides hot pluggable redundant hardware for all critical systems with automatic and seamless takeover on all PSUs, DSP, control processor, router and I/O. Spares mirror the primary hardware and in the rare event of failure, automatically take over with no disruption to the audio.



    Control panels can switch mode on the fly, allowing for all controls to be one button press away, irrespective of operator position and allowing each user their own preferred control layout. User splits and independent monitoring allows multiple operators to work on the same surface.



    Flexible monitoring and metering provide comprehensive coverage over every aspect of production. Apollo has lots of input and output metering so you can be sure across all your sources at all times. Built-in assistive apps like Autofader and Automix help keep you on top of your game.



    With 1020 DSP processing paths, Apollo is a powerhouse. All DSP paths are available on all channels irrespective of whatever else is going on; every single channel has dedicated DSP resources to give you total, stress-free control. Independent DSP operation ensures continuity in the event of a PC or control reset.



    Apollo is ready to switch to an IP network whenever you are ready. Either add Calrec’s SMPTE 2110 compliant ImPulse IP core to an existing console or connect direct to an existing IP network via Calrec’s Gateway technology. All Apollo I/O is switchable from Hydra2 to IP
