The Apollo has lots of intesting features like the beatcompare circuit and the transform buttons. Let’s get into the groove! The apollo also has an effect return input and external reverberation can easily be mixed directly onto the master.
14 inputs 7 channelsThe Apollo has 7 channels, each with 2 inputs. A total of 2 microphones, 3 turntables and 9 line signals (CD or MD players, sampler, groovebox, keyboard etc.) can be connected up to the mixer panel. In addition, each channel has a 3-way (A-Master-B) switch, allowing each channel to be linked to the A or B side of the crossfader or directly to the master.
The Apollo’s crossfader is VCA driven. This means that no audio signals pass through the fader, just control voltages. Thanks to this, the life of the fader is dramatically increased and problems such as noise and loss of sound are things of the past.
The Apollo is also provided with the “transform” buttons. When one of these buttons is pushed in, the signal from the crossfader becomes visible. It disappears again when the button is released … an extra tool for the creative DJ.
The built-in beatcompare circuit, incorporating advanced microprocessor technology, is absolutely unique. It allows the beats from 2 signals to be displayed side by side on the crossfader. show clearly whether the pitch of the source to be adjusted has to be raised or lowered to achieve equality. The beats can now be superimposed. This function makes seamless crossover a piece of cake.
The Apollo has gain control and 3-band equalizer in each channel. The cue function allows you to listen to the audio signal of each channel before you release it, while the split function gives you the cue signal and the master signal simultaneously over the headphones.
The “sub low” output allows you to amplify frequencies under 125 Hz separately. The master output has both XLR-balanced and cinch connections, and the monitor output can be adjusted separately.
An extra feature provided on the Apollo is the effect return input, which allows external reverberation to be mixed directly on to the master. The effect sends feature permits similar introduction of reverberation in the microphone inputs with the aid of jumpers on the pre- or post-fader.
