With Apogee’s award-winning quality and digital iOS connectivity that has been certified by Apple, the Apogee One lets you record with total confidence.
Apogee’s AD/DA converters are at the heart of the Apogee One. Their 24-bit, 96kHz sample rate delivers pristine recording and immaculate playback; One’s simplified signal path resulting from state-of-the-art components and efficient circuitry provides total audio transparency. There are two world-class mic preamps in One with click-free, seamless transitions as you adjust the gain, using the onboard controller knob or software. The mic pres feature a range of 0 to 63dB, allowing you to use any microphone to capture all of the nuances of your performance with low noise and stunning clarity.
The Apogee One also has a built-in, studio-quality condenser microphone for quickly capturing professional-sounding field recordings, vocals, or song ideas. There is an included mic clip for easy stand mounting. As a headphone amp, One’s converters bring audiophile-quality from your iOS or Mac to your headphones or powered speakers through a standard, 1/8″ output and allow you to hear subtle detail in your mixes or music library. The supplied breakout cable has a 1/4″ input for guitar and an XLR input for a microphone turning One into an audio interface. You can choose two inputs simultaneously: the 1/4″ and either the XLR or internal microphone. All of the cables necessary for iOS and Mac connectivity are also supplied.
One can be either bus powered or powered by the included DC power supply on Mac. On iOS, One can actually charge your device while operating on the power supply. The option of running One on 2 AA batteries gives you the freedom to record on-the-go and completely off-the-grid.
