The Apollo Twin for voice overs

I really didn’t want it to work that well for voice over.   I have invested thousands of dollars on a rack of gear I have fine tuned over the years for my voice style.  I didn’t want to think that anyone could just get a UA Apollo Twin and have just a good of a sound.    I did want to get something that was better than a basic interface for travel voice over recording (I had been using Shure X2U interface, which was great).    I also wasn’t sure if a UA Apollo twin USB would work with my laptop and/or Cool Edit Pro, which I still religiously use, even after trying Audition CS6 and even ProTools..still prefer the speed of Cool Edit.   GET OFF MY LAWN!     Found out my laptop DID have USB 3 and the processor wasn’t listed on the approved processors, but I found a Twin USB on Craigslist for $500, so what the hell.     D A M N.    I’ve had it 2 months now and have used it to do 95% of my voice talent work.     I bought 1300 bucks worth of plugins and have been so happy with it.   I purchased a 2nd one and also a 2nd laptop.    Amazing how good it sounds and how versatile it is.    AND how you can save settings for any amount of sessions you want.  Fantastic.     Selling off some of my rack gear now.   Hurts to do so, but for voice over, the Apollo from UA is fantastic.
