    OK, So i bought a new UAD Apollo audio device, it has only one thunderbolt port on it, no passthrough.

    If I can help it, I really dont want to purchase an apple thunderbolt display, because I'd like a 4k display (on the cheap)

    My 2012 mac mini has only 1 Thunderbolt port,

    I'm seeing a few 4k monitors that have displayport passthrough, to daisychain screens, I'm wondering if I can attach said screen via the mac mdp and then use a displayport to mdp cable to attach my thunderbolt device (i'm doubting it)

    In a word, NO.

    Cannot convert from my back to Thunderbolt.

    You need a new computer with dual Thunderbolt ports, or a Thunderbolt display. On the latter, not recommended unless you get a great deal on the Apple TB Display, or get the very nice LG display.
