Put the Sound of a Symphony on Your Desktop. Symphony Desktop for Mac, iPad pro and Windows packs the legendary sound quality of Apogees rack-mount Symphony I/O Mk II into an elegant and inspiring 10×14 audio interface that sits on your desk and fits in your bag. With Symphony Desktop, musicians and producers are empowered to record, overdub and mix with the music industrys most respected AD/DA convertors and mic preamps.
By combining superior performance, with new features like mic preamp emulation, the Symphony ECS Channel Strip and Clearmountains Spaces reverb plugins, ultra low latency recording with hardware DSP and Apogee native FX plugins, Symphony Desktop will amplify your creativity in your studio or on the go and give your recordings the Apogee sound quality Advantage. Cutting edge analog and digital components.
Selected by curious and critical ears. As a Symphony family product, Symphony Desktop benefits from Apogees core mission to design the finest performing audio interfaces using cutting edge analog and digital components, carefully selected by ear. While others cut costs and rely on conventional design approaches, we use innovative components and circuit optimization to consistently improve the performance of our products. A/D CONVERSION - Faithfully Capture Every Nuance.
Like Symphony I/O Mk II, Symphony Desktops analog-to-digital convertor stage features ultra-low distortion, high-slew rate, fully differential analog op-amps plus a cutting edge A/D convertor in a performance-enhancing dual-sum configuration. Create with the confidence that every nuance of your analog input is faithfully reproduced in the digital domain. D/A CONVERSION - A Widescreen Window Into Your Mix.
The digital-to-analog stage of Symphony Desktop features brand new technology that provides uncompromising Symphony DAC performance in a portable product, including a robust ultra-low distortion, high-current, fully balanced output driver. Regardless of downstream connections, Symphony Desktop delivers a transparent, widescreen window into the sonic landscape of your mix. MIC PREAMPS - Superior Performance + Alloy Preamp Emulations. At the core of the input stage, are Symphony Desktops mic preamps offering up to 75dB of gain. The preamp design features Apogees unique Advanced Stepped Gain Architecture which ensures ultra-low noise and distortion regardless of the source, from pounding kick drum to delicate fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar.
With variable impedance settings on both mic and instrument inputs, Symphony Desktop optimizes the input stage to better match your specific devices, for deep lows and clear highs. Selectable Apogee Alloy mic preamp emulations adds character, attitude and maybe a bit of grit to your recordings.
TWO HEADPHONE OUTPUTS - Equipped with Dual Sum ESS DACs. Symphony Desktop has two completely independent ultra low impedance headphone outputs, individually routable, both equipped with dual-sum ESS DACs.
Output power range is tailored to the expected type of headphones: the front panel output can drive virtually any headphones, while the rear panel output is specifically tailored for high-efficiency headphones. Apogee Alloy Mic Preamp emulation processing gives you the warmth and tone of coveted analog preamps. The Apogee Alloy Mic Preamp (AMP) emulation offers analog circuitry plus DSP processing to create the richest, most authentic audio modeling available in an audio interface. Critical aspects of the model such as input impedance, transient profile and distortion characteristics are first implemented in the analog domain, followed by precise and accurate refinement in DSP, for a hybrid result thats greater than the sum of its parts. British Solid State - Class A Console Sound.Inspired by the Marinar Round can input transformer and discrete transistor design of our Class A Neve 1066 mic preamp, this emulation gives you the sonic weight and smooth transient response of the hardware. Push the level for increased width and punch. American Tube - Lush, 50s Tone. Symphony Desktops AX-601 mic preamp gives you the lush, larger-than-life sounds of a 50s era Ampex 601 preamp, carefully restored and modded for lower noise and greater dynamic range. Weve captured the harmonic warmth, richness and high-end sheen of the hardware, plus the gently overcooked sound of the overloading circuit. Hardware DSP and Native Plugin FX. Run Apogees premium plugins on Symphony Desktop and in your DAW. Obsessively crafted by the same team that designs all Apogee hardware and software products, Apogee FX are premium plugins that run on the hardware DSP in Symphony Desktop or as native plugins on your computer.
