Apogee
Symphony Desktop

10 In x 14 Out USB-C Audio Interface

Put the Sound of a Symphony on your Desk

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.

Apogee plug-ins will quickly find their way into your daily recording toolkit, from visually modern interfaces that allow you to precisely shape and contour your sound, to meticulously modeled vintage hardware that is so accurate it has been endorsed by the hardware manufacturer.

Apogee Symphony Desktop

Legendary sound quality

Symphony Desktop benefits from Apogee's core mission to design the highest performing audio interfaces using the most advanced analog and digital components, carefully selected by ear. While others are cutting costs and relying on conventional design approaches, Apogee is using innovative components and circuit optimization to continually improve the performance of our products.

A/D conversion

Similar to Symphony I/O MkII, Symphony Desktop’s 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.

D/A conversion

Symphony Desktop’s digital-to-analog stage employs brand new technology to provide uncompromising Symphony DAC performance in a portable product, including a robust ultra-low distortion, high-current output driver. Regardless of downstream connections, Symphony Desktop provides a transparent, widescreen window into the sonic landscape of your mix.

Mic Preamps

At the core of the input stage, are Symphony Desktop’s mic preamps offering up to 75dB of gain. The preamp design features Apogee’s 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 mic preamp emulation adds character, attitude and maybe a bit of grit to your recordings.

Mic Preamp emulation with Apogee Alloy

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 that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

British SOLID STATE

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

This emulation offers the lush, larger-than-life sounds of our 50s era Ampex 601 preamp, carefully restored and modded for lower noise and greater dynamic range. We’ve captured the harmonic warmth, richness and high-end sheen of the hardware, plus the “gently overcooked” sound of the overloading circuit.

Hardware DPS and Native Plugin FX

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.

From visually modern interfaces that allow you to precisely shape and contour your sound to meticulously modeled vintage hardware so accurate it has been endorsed by the hardware manufacturer, Apogee plugins will quickly find their way into your daily recording tool kit.

Symphony ESC Channel Strip Plugin tuned by Bob Clearmountain

Included with Symphony Desktop is the Symphony ECS Channel Strip plugin. Tuned by Bob Clearmountain, Symphony ECS includes EQ, Compression and Saturation controls that let you create the optimal blend of channel FX for tracking vocals or acoustic instruments.

Match to Your
Mic Pre Selection

With Symphony ECS you have 3 characters to choose from. Symphony, American Tube and British Solid State. The profile of each is matched to the built-in mic pre and mic pre emulations. You can also mix and match to your sonic sensibilities.

PRINT, DUALPATH LINK AND
NATIVE WORKFLOW

Symphony ECS gives you the full range of Apogee workflow options. For zero latency tracking, you can print though it as you record or set up a DualPath Link for monitoring and print later when you mix. Or simply use Symphony ECS as a native plugin in your DAW, no Apogee hardware required.
