Universal Audio ships 16x16 Apollo 16 interface, updated software
Universal Audio has started shipping the <A href="http://www.uaudio.com/interfaces/apollo-16.html">Apollo 16</a>, a new audio interface for musicians. The gear supports throughput up to 24-bit/192kHz, and uses a 16x16 analog I/O arrangement. That includes support for for purely digital connection types however, such as FireWire and Thunderbolt. Two Apollo 16s can be cascaded via MADI, creating a unit with eight processors and 32x32 I/O. <br />
<br />
The Apollo 16 costs $2,999. Thunderbolt support is Mac-only, and requires paying an extra $499 for the Thunderbolt Option Card. Accompanying the interface's release is an update of the <A href="http://www.uaudio.com/support/uad/70.html">UAD Software</a>, v7.0. The upgrade is needed for cascade support, and adds plugins for Ocean Way Studios, SPL TwinTube, and Sonnox Inflator. <br />
<br />
The Console app has been redesigned with better visual feedback, and a new PT Mode attempts to simplify outboard hardware integration with Pro Tools. An added Virtual I/O feature permits real-time UAD processing of DAW content.

I'm guessing you mean MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) rather than MADI.

No, it's MADI, Multi-channel Audio Digital Interface.

MIDI doesn't belong on a pro audio interface, as it's a control protocol that carries no audio. There are pro MIDI interfaces for that.
