Apogee Symphony I/O System with 8x8 Analog I/O and 8 Mic Preamp Modules at a Glance:
Symphony I/O - the base unit
The Symphony I/O comes as a single base unit. This unit features built-in Ethernet and USB output, as well as Symphony/Pro Tools HD PC-32 I/O - but no additional I/O. A pair of module bays lets you decide what additional I/O you need, allowing you to build the system you want. Choose from five different modules, each with a different assortment of analog and digital I/O. You can even add banks of Apogee's ultra-transparent microphone preamps! Each of the Symphony I/O's module cards offers Apogee's finest conversion technology, and the Symphony I/O itself sports enhanced C777 clocking for completely reliable jitter-free performance.
Analog and AES - plus optical I/O
The Symphony 8x8 Analog I/O + 8x8 AES/Optical I/O Module adds eight channels of analog inputs and outputs to your Apogee Symphony I/O on two 25-pin D-Sub connectors: one for input and one for output, each carrying eight balanced channels. A third 25-pin D-Sub connector gives you eight channels of AES/EBU digital I/O. You can also configure this connector in a single-wide 192kHz format. You can switch between the AES I/O and optical ports that support eight channels of 44.1-48kHz ADAT, eight channels of 88.2-96kHz S/MUX, or two channels of up to 96kHz S/PDIF. As if that's not enough, you also get two channels of S/PDIF coax I/O (up to 192kHz) on RCA.
Eight superb preamps onboard
The Symphony 8 Mic Preamp Module adds Apogee's incredible digitally controlled microphone preamplifiers to eight of your analog I/O module's line inputs. Based on Apogee's amazing Trak2 preamp technology, these ultra-transparent microphone preamps deliver the results that pro studios demand. Plus, the Symphony 8 Mic Preamp Module also adds four incredible hi-Z instrument inputs as well as eight fully balanced insert points.
Apogee's uncompromising digital audio quality
For more than two decades, Apogee has developed some of the finest pro-audio technology, including the famous X-series and Rosetta series converters, the Big Ben master clock, the Trak2 mic preamps, and the Symphony PCI protocol. Now, they put all that experience into one amazing interface: the Symphony I/O. You get to choose the I/O, so you can get up to 32 channels of jaw-dropping AD/DA conversion set up for any DAW, including native DAWs such as Logic, Cubase, and Ableton Live, as well as Pro Tools|HD! And standalone operation even lets you use the Symphony I/O with proprietary systems such as Pro Tools LE.
