Apogee Symphony Desktop USB-C Audio Interface
Available on backorder
“The Apogee Symphony Desktop is not only a high quality converter – there’s much more lurking underneath. While it doesn’t have the analogue I/O conversion capacity of the Symphony I/O Mk II, it offers two outstanding preamps with 75dB gain, vintage emulations powered by hardware DSP, a handful of DSP-accelerated plug-ins, and a portable tabletop form factor. The Symphony Desktop is a superlative home studio interface.” – AudioTechnology
“In summary, the benefit of Symphony-quality preamps and converters isn’t subtle. The unit is sized for easy travel and well designed for use in residence by those who can’t justify the price or channel count of the Apogee’s Symphony I/O Mk II.” – Tape Op
Flagship Sound Quality. Vintage Preamp Emulation. Hardware DSP with
Premium Native Plugins. Immersive Touch Screen Interface.
Put the Sound of a Symphony on Your Desk
Faithfully Capture Every Nuance
A/D CONVERSION – Like Symphony I/O Mk II, Symphony Desktop’s analog-to-digital converter stage features ultra-low distortion, high-slew rate, fully differential analog op-amps plus a cutting edge A/D converter 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.
Superior Performance + Vintage Emulations
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 Apogee Alloy preamp emulations add character, attitude and maybe a bit of grit to your recordings.
A Widescreen Window Into Your Mix
D/A CONVERSION – 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.
