Apogee Symphony I/O becomes exclusive recording interface forLive from the Artists Den TV Series

Santa Monica, California, May 12, 2014 – Apogee Electronics, an industry leader in digital audio recording since 1985, is pleased to announce their continued partnership with Live from the Artists Den, a globally televised series featuring intimate music performances from high-profile artists in non-traditional and often historic concert settings.  Apogee’s industry leading Symphony I/O recording platform has been utilized to capture Artists Den performances by acts including Adele, Mumford and Sons, Soundgarden, Sara Bareilles and Ed Sheeran.

From The New York Public library to the 1920’s charm of LA’s Belasco Theater (and just about everything in between), this innovative music platform demands audio recording equipment of the highest quality that is also reliable and flexible.  Currently in its eighth season, the acclaimed series now relies exclusively on Apogee’s flagship Symphony I/O audio interface to capture recordings which reflect the complete sonic detail and dynamic range of the world’s most captivating musical acts.

The recording rig used by the Artists Den features 64-channels of Apogee’s award-winning Symphony I/O AD/DA conversion, built-in Symphony I/O microphone preamps and an Apogee Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge, an interface which allows Symphony I/O to be connected to a MacBook Pro through a single Thunderbolt cable. All converters, mic preamps and MacBook Pro are mounted in a single 24-unit rack for a remarkably small footprint, making it the undeniable solution for the ever-changing landscape of the Artists Den performances. Gone are the days of truck storage, heavy lifting, and onerous setup.

“For years, Apogee’s Symphony I/O has delivered the best sounding live recordings of our TV shows,” says Mark Lieberman, creator and executive producer of Live from the Artists Den. “We are thrilled to collaborate with their team to deploy their state of the art mobile recording system to ensure a superior audio experience for our television audience.”
