Apogee Takes Two TEC Awards At AES New York With Ensemble And Symphony [ 123rd AES Convention ]

United States
AES New York, October 7, 2007 — Apogee’s Ensemble and Symphony both won TEC awards at Mix Foundation’s 23rd Annual Excellence & Creativity Awards. At the ceremony held in New York on October 6th, 2007, Ensemble took home the prize in the “Digital Converter Technology” category and Symphony won for “Ancillary Equipment”. The TEC Awards, founded in 1985, honor the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, films, TV shows and live performances. The nominations are made by a panel of industry professionals and voted upon by the subscribers of Mix. These are the 13th and 14th TEC awards that Apogee has received.

About Ensemble:

Ensemble is a multi-channel digital audio interface designed specifically for Apple’s Mac computers and uniquely integrated in to Apple’s Logic Pro Studio. The all-in-one Ensemble features 36 channels of simultaneous audio, including eight channels of Apogee’s legendary A/D and D/A conversion, four transparent, digitally controlled 75dB mic-preamps, eight channels of ADAT I/O, two channels of S/PDIF coax and optical I/O, and FireWire connectivity to and from the computer. Also included with Ensemble are Apogee features such as SoftLimit to prevent digital overs, UV22HR dither for mastering, and ultra-low jitter Intelliclock.

Here’s what Ensemble users are saying:

"I have been so incredibly happy with the Ensemble, you could not imagine. The sound has taken all of my mixes and compositions to another level. It is an amazing piece of engineering. I bought the Ensemble because I am a Logic user and I need the best possible sound. The Apogee sound is unprecedented and extremely present in the Ensemble. It has all the quality, features, and ease of use that I have been looking for. The direct integration with Logic lets me do more - faster and better. I can’t wait to use it on my next scoring job."

- Felix Brenner - Composer, Mixer, Producer

About Symphony:

Symphony connects Apogee’s legendary X-Series and Rosetta Series converters to Apple’s revolutionary Mac Pro and Logic Studio audio creation and production DAW. The result is the lowest latency available in a native audio system (1.6 milliseconds at 96k) and an incredible capacity for plug-in processing and high channel count recording that outperforms popular card-based DSP systems. And, with all of those benefits, a Symphony System comes at a fraction of the cost, making it an undeniable choice for professional high-end audio.

Here’s what Symphony users are saying:

The Symphony card has brought a new level of sophistication to my writing rig. I am now able to have the extremely low latency that was never before associated with native systems. Symphony’s performance has made a huge difference to me and the musicians I work with. And it worked seamlessly out of the box with a new Mac Pro which has allowed me to replace a four computer rig with just one powerful integrated system...amazing.
