« Very good, Very expensive »Publié le 15/03/13 à 04:20
There are 16 balanced inputs and you can connect the mics via the external microphone preamps and same thing with the guitars. There are 2 channels (S/PDIF) and 16 Analog Outputs. This interface may not be for everyone do to the price and the complicated set up. It took me a while to get this set up and my computer specs where just about standard with what the Symphony was requiring a user to have for this interface.
I was having major driver issues when using this with my desktop Mac computer. For some reason I had to do installs about 3 different times before the interface would be recognized by my computer. But after I finally got it to install correctly it worked like a charm. These issues could have been my fault or my computers issue; I really didn’t think it had anything to do with the interface.
Being that this interface is so expensive, it may not be worth the money. I have used other interfaces that cost hundreds of dollars less that gave me the exact same sound. But it’s Apogee and they also have more expensive gear. If you are a Macbook user I wouldn't recommend this unless your MacBook is your main set up than in that case this could be your main interface. But if you have a desktop Mac and enough money to invest this is the interface to have. The preamps are amazing and the sound quality is about as good as you are going to get from working at home!
