Today at NAMM, Apogee Electronics Corporation (booth 6428) unveiled Ensemble, a multi-channel digital audio interface designed specifically for use with Apple Macintosh computers. Ensemble is the first and only multi-channel audio interface to be controllable natively within Apple's Logic Pro software, creating a complete, fully integrated professional hardware and software system for audio production on a Mac.
"This is an exciting revolution in native recording. We worked very closely with Apple to craft a professional solution that would fully integrate with Apple software. I am confident our customers will be quite pleased with the quality, ease of use and affordability of this very special product," says Betty Bennett Co-Founder and CEO of Apogee.
"With Logic Pro 7, Apple brought a new level of sophistication to computer-based music production while our development community created an incredible ecosystem around it," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's vice president of Applications Marketing. "We have worked closely with Apogee so that their new Firewire Audio interface not only sets new standards for sound quality and performance but is also a natural extension of Logic Pro 7."
Ensemble Features 36 channels of simultaneous audio, including 8 channels of Apogee's legendary A/D and D/A conversion, 4 transparent, digitally controlled 75db mic preamps, 8 channels of ADAT I/O, 2 channels of S/PDIF coax and optical I/O, and FireWire connectivity to and from the computer as standard. Ensemble also includes such Apogee's features as "SoftLimit", "UV22HR", and "Intelliclock". These technologies combined with converters that set the standard for the digital audio industry make Ensemble an ideal choice for professionals seeking a high-definition, integrated audio solution.
