Ensemble from Apogee is a digitally controlled, professional audio interface designed specifically for the Macintosh. The unit features thirty-six channels of simultaneous audio, including eight channels of Apogee's A/D and D/A conversion and four transparent, digitally controlled 75dB microphone preamps.
Housed in a single space rack mount chassis, Ensemble includes eight channels of ADAT I/O, two channels of S/PDIF coaxial and optical I/O and FireWire connectivity to and from the computer. Everything from microphone preamp and output gain to sample and bit rate selection is controllable from within Logic's Apogee Control Panel, making Ensemble a complete and compelling digital audio work station for the Mac.
Ensemble also includes premium Apogee technologies such as "SoftLimit," "UV22HR" and "Intelliclock." These technologies combined with converters that set the standard for the audio industry make Ensemble an ideal choice for professionals seeking a high-definition, integrated solution that's incredibly easy to use.
