Description

Apogee Ensemble is the first Thunderbolt 2 audio interface to offer superior sound quality, the lowest latency performance and the most comprehensive studio functionality all in one box. Made for the professional home or commercial studio, Ensemble features legendary Apogee AD/DA conversion, 8 Advanced Stepped Gain™ mic preamps, monitor controller functionality including talkback, front panel Guitar I/O, two headphone outputs and digital connectivity for a total of 30 x 34 I/O.

Ensemble’s Core Audio optimized DMA engine, custom audio driver and Thunderbolt 2 connection combined with the powerful processing of your Mac allow you to utilize more plugins and virtual instruments with the lowest latency performance of any native system. Blending acclaimed innovations, groundbreaking new features and an effortless user interface, Ensemble empowers you to join the ranks of the world’s top engineers and producers that count on Apogee interfaces to deliver hit after hit.

Integrate with Logic Pro X to Easily Eliminate Latency

Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt and Element Series audio interfaces now offer Direct Monitoring support in Apple’s Logic Pro X (10.3.2) that easily eliminates recording latency with the simple click of a button. Pressing the new “Direct” button causes your monitoring signal to come directly from the hardware input, bypassing any I/O buffer or plug-in induced latency.

The new feature makes it possible to end distracting input delays for the performer without having to constantly change audio monitoring preferences and interact with a separate low latency monitoring mixer. Never before has it been so easy to record in Logic without latency – It’s as simple as clicking the Direct button and adding a touch of reverb with an effect send.

The tight integration of Apogee’s Ensemble and Element Series interfaces with Logic and its new Direct Monitoring feature combine to deliver a world-class professional recording workflow to musicians and audio engineers.

The newly-implemented Direct button is found in Logic’s Channel Strip Audio Device Controls, where Apogee hardware input parameters including mic pre gain, input type selection and others are currently found. This simplified user experience allows customers working with Apogee hardware and Logic Pro X to focus on a single session window when recording, and offers complete visibility and control of input parameters, and now unprecedented flexibility and control over recording latency.

  • Connect two Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt interfaces to your Mac to double your analog inputs and outputs
  • All-new Apogee Control software replaces Maestro 2 and features a modern user interface you can customize for your workflow
