Apogee Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt 8×8+8MP Product Description

Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt is the most powerful multi-channel audio interface for Thunderbolt-based Mac workstations. Designed for the home or professional studio running Logic Pro X or any other native based DAW, this system offers your choice of 4 different base I/O configurations with the option to expand up to 32×32 simultaneous channels per unit while still maintaining incredibly low latency.

Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt’s custom driver includes a revolutionary Direct Memory Access (DMA) engine to more efficiently read and write data directly to Mac memory independent of the Mac CPU.

The DMA engine, running on Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt’s hardware logic chip, increases the driver’s efficiency and provides the highest resolution signal possible to the DAC stage. This implementation allows the driver to crunch an enormous amount of data at an amazing speed, while making a very light demand on your Mac CPU. You benefit with lower latency, more plug-in power, and a transparent and encompassing listening experience.

Access all control functions and settings with Maestro, Apogee’s comprehensive software control application. Maestro features a single window interface with quick access to all device and system settings. Select your input types, change your I/O routing and use the mixer for low latency monitoring. Maestro lets you easily configure Symphony I/O Mk II Thunderbolt to fit your workflow.

Apple Logic users with the 8-channel mic preamp module can adjust hardware input parameters including mic pre gain, input type selection, phase control, and more directly from the Mixer view in Logic Pro X or the Logic Remote App on iPad. This simplified user experience lets users have complete visibility and control when recording to remain in their creative element.
