Apogee Symphony Desktop

The Apogee Symphony Desktop audio interface combines Apogee’s flagship sound quality,  vintage mic preamp emulation, and hardware DSP with premium plugins. Not to mention its immersive touch screen interface.

Designed for Mac, iPad Pro, and Windows, the Symphony Desktop packs the renowned sound quality of the rack-mound Symphony I/O into a 10×14 audio interface. Elegant and inspiring, the Symphony Desktop not only sits nicely on your desk but is easy enough to carry in your bag. As a result, musicians and producers alike are empowered to record, overdub and mix. All with the industry’s most respected AD/DA converters and mic preamps.

Symphony Desktop is sure to amplify your creativity whether you’re in the studio or on the go. Giving your recordings that sought-out Apogee sound quality advantage.

AD/DA Conversion

Similarly to the Symphony I/O MKII, Symphony Desktop’s AD converter stage features ultra-low distortion, high-slew rate, and fully differential analog op-amps. Not to mention a cutting edge A/D converter in a performance-enhancing dual-sum configuration. So you can create with the confidence that every nuance of your analog input will be faithfully reproduced

D/A Conversion

Employing brand new technology, the Symphony Desktop’s D/A stage provides uncompromising Symphony DAC performance. Including a robust ultra-low distortion, high-current output driver, while remaining completely portable. Regardless of downstream connections, the Symphony Desktop provides a transparent, widescreen window into the sonic landscape of your mix.

Mic Preamps

At the core of the input stage, Symphony Desktops mic preamps offer up to 75dB of gain. Boasting a design that sports Apogees unique Advanced Stepped Gain Architecture, the Symphony Desktop ensures ultra-low noise and distortion. No matter whether its a pounding kick drum or delicate fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar. Plus, with variable impedance settings on both mic and instrument inputs; the Symphony Desktop optimizes the input stage to better match your specific devices. Maintaining deep lows and clear highs. Selectable Apogee Alloy mic preamp emulations also work to add character, attitude, and grit to your recordings.

Headphone Outputs

Finally, the Symphony Desktop features two completely independent, ultra-low impedance headphone outputs. Individually routable, and equipped with dual-sum ESS DACs. The front panel output can drive virtually any headphones. While the rear panel output is best suited for your high-efficiency headphones.

Along with the Symphony ECS Channel Strip and Clearmountain’s Spaces plugins, customers who purchase Symphony Desktop will now receive the Pultech EQP-1A, Pultec MEQ-5, Opto-3A, ModEQ 6, and ModComp Native and Dual Path plugins. For a total value over $1200!
