Apogee stops by Mat Mitchell’s North Hollywood Studio to Discuss Symphony I/O MK II SoundGrid
James ‘Jimmy’ Earl is a part of the house hand on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
He has been using Apogee products since the days of the Rosetta 800, and most recently uses the Element 24 with the Apogee Control app for iOS to record his bass into his Mac.
“I love the different products…the product line is important to different aspects of my studio and live setup. When you’re on the road and you respect the art and you’re with people who inspire you it feels good to be like ‘Wow, no matter where I am I’m able to create!’
When I’m traveling and in my hotel room and want to record an idea after the show, or because I’ve met a musician on the road, using something like the MiC+ and Duet is a game changer.”
Madame Gandhi – Electronic Music Artist and Activist – let us take a look at her studio in L.A.’s Downtown Arts District to discuss the importance of owning your voice, the future of feminism, and how Apogee products empower her creative process.
“The 2×6 SE inspires me on a daily basis, knowing that what is coming out of my console is getting to the listener EXACTLY the way it sounds at my studio!”
“This is a great sounding mic considering both size and price. In my home studio, I almost always use my U87 or once in a while a 416, but I use the Apogee when I’m out of the studio as a VO mic and for interviewing people.”

“Whether recording ideas on the road with Apogee MiC or listening to music from my computer with Groove, I never leave home without Apogee”

“Symphony I/O allows me to convert analog outboard gear back into my digital console at levels that other convertors cannot handle…There is a reason this piece is used worldwide in mastering houses, and there’s an absolute reason I continue to support it by taking it worldwide. There is an unprecedented level of trust I have for this piece and what it allows me to accomplish.”
