Introducing Ensemble, the first all digitally controlled, professional audio interface, designed specifically for the Macintosh.
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. Ensemble also includes premium Apogee technologies such as ?SoftLimit?, ?UV22HR?, and ?Intelliclock?. These technologies combined with converters that set the standard for the audio industry make Ensemble an ideal choice for professionals seeking a high-definition, integrated solution that's incredibly easy to use.
Ensemble will now operate without a FireWire connection to a Macintosh*.
Ensemble's Stand-Alone Mode offers professionals the option to use their Ensemble as a high-end converter and mic pre, independent of the computer. Using Maestro and a Mac, configure your low latency and routing settings only once, Ensemble remembers the settings, even when disconnected from the computer and allows access to all front panel settings, such as mic pre gain and output levels, which are fully functional while in Stand-Alone Mode.
Ensemble's Stand-Alone Mode at a Glance:
- Maestro mixer and routing settings, now located in Ensemble's non-volatile memory, enable storage of settings in Ensemble
- Allows the use of Ensemble as a converter from analog to optical, coax and optical, or coax to analog, as well as other possible configurations
- Changes to routing or settings in Maestro still require connectivity to a Macintosh computer
*Simple firmware update required.
