Apogee Introduces Element Series



As a celebration of their 30th year of award-winning digital audio recording products, Apogee Electronics has announced The Element Series. This all-new product family includes three premium Thunderbolt audio I/O boxes for Mac - Element 24, Element 46 and Element 88, each with a different number of analog and digital I/O. Element introduces a new control ecosystem that features an advanced blend of software and hardware options.

Apogee is recognized by the professional audio industry as an innovator that sets the sound-quality standard in digital recording. Symphony I/O Mk II and Ensemble Thunderbolt are Apogee’s most recent flagship products. The essentials of excellent audio recording technology that make Ensemble Thunderbolt superior are embodied in the Element series. The Element series uses Apogee’s rock solid Thunderbolt driver for 1.41ms round-trip latency when using Logic Pro X. As an added element, the series also features Apogee Groove’s headphone output technology. This design dynamically optimizes sound quality for a wide variety of headphones.

Apogee is also regarded as the company that revolutionized the audio interface user experience. Products like Duet and Ensemble Firewire created new categories in the home studio recording market and have been often imitated by other manufacturers seeking to capitalize on Apogee’s design success. Element evolves Apogee’s user interface approach again by offering broader more customizable options that extend beyond the physical hardware. The highly configurable Element Control software for Mac lets users set up workflows that meet their needs and the Element Control for iOS App lets them control the Elements remotely over wifi. Logic Pro X users can adjust Element I/O settings directly from their Logic Channel strips. And for those wanting more traditional desktop control, there’s the optional Apogee Control hardware, featuring a Duet like form-factor with 8 assignable buttons and a master control knob. Regardless which of these options you prefer, if you are using an Element, everything is under control.

Betty Bennett, Co-Founder and CEO of Apogee said, “The Element Series delivers incredible performance at outstanding prices. The streamlined physical hardware takes a very direct approach, allowing us to maximize the components that are most important to sound quality. In addition, the Element Control eco system takes the audio interface user experiences a step forward while giving customers more options. We feel the Element Series is transformative and we know our customers will be amazed by the quality and delighted with the value.”

Highlights:

• Sound quality equal to Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt
• AD/DA conversion for recording up to 192kHz/24-bit
• World-class mic preamps built-in, with selectable 48v phantom power
• Single port Thunderbolt connectivity to Mac for ultra-low latency performance
• 1.41ms round-trip at 96kHz with a 32 buffer setting
• New Element Control Software for Mac provides all control of hardware parameters including input gain, output level and low latency monitoring
• New Element Control Mobile App provides wireless remote control of hardware via iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
