Apogee hardware control is integrated directly into Logic Pro X
If you are using an Ensemble or Element series interface, you can adjust hardware input parameters directly from the Mixer view in Logic Pro X, including mic pre gain, input type selection, 48V phantom power, direct monitoring and more. This simplified user experience helps you focus on a single session window when recording, and offers comprehensive visibility and control of input parameters.
Easily eliminate recording latency with Direct Monitoring in Logic Pro X
Apogee’s Ensemble Thunderbolt and Element Series audio interfaces now offer Direct Monitoring support in Apple’s Logic Pro X (10.3.2) that easily eliminates recording latency with the simple click of a button. Pressing the new “Direct” button causes your monitoring signal to come directly from the hardware input, bypassing any I/O buffer or plug-in induced latency. The new feature makes it possible to end distracting input delays for the performer without having to constantly change audio monitoring preferences or interact with a separate low latency monitoring mixer.
Control Apogee hardware and Logic Pro X from an iOS device
Apogee hardware input controls are also accessible through the Logic Remote App on iPhone or iPad, enabling Apogee users to wirelessly adjust their input levels and settings from anywhere in the studio. Drummers can adjust mic pres without having to get up from behind the kit, engineers can do a line check while still setting up mics, and home musicians recording themselves can switch between a microphone and directly connected instrument without having to be in front of their computers.
