SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • February 4, 2015 — Universal Audio is proud to announce that the Apollo Twin won the 30th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award in the category of Computer Audio Hardware.

Presented annually by the NAMM Foundation, the TEC Awards was established in 1985 to honor outstanding achievement in professional audio production and product innovation. Hundreds of entries for nomination are reviewed and voted upon by an extensive panel of veteran sound and music industry professionals in the U.S. and abroad. Online subscribers to Mix, Pro Sound News, Pro Audio Review, Electronic Musician, and members of professional audio and sound production organizations determine winners through private online voting.

And it's a much deserved award, in my opinion. UA has been doing great things these last few years with the Apollos and I expect with the recent innovations for them to pick up more awards next year. They aren't the only company that put out fantastic products recently but they are definitely among them.
