Learn how after comparing audio interfaces Chris determined Apogee Element’s sonic quality and tight integration is the best user experience for Logic users, and how Dual-Path DSP and FX Rack enable Logic users to monitor with plugins without latency.
“It is the perfect blend between functionality, portability and cost without compromise in quality. The elimination of physical controls is the primary contributor to the Element Series’ affordability; while that made me a bit reluctant, I haven’t missed the controls a bit.”
“This is a great way to get into the Apogee sound with all the bells and whistles, but at the most cost-conscious price yet!”
“It’s impressive stuff, nicely designed and intuitive to use… Apogee’s name is staked on its warm, clear preamps and AD/DA conversion and this reputation is more than upheld here”
“To have a cheaper interface that sacrifices front-panel controls rather than quality to reach a lower price seems like a good approach…with the Element, I can now control everything from the screen without leaving the relative comfort of my chair. So while the Element series won’t be for everyone, it happens to fit one of my workflows perfectly; in fact, I’m almost certainly going to buy one after returning the review unit to Apogee.”
“There are a lot of new Thunderbolt audio interface offerings from well-regarded companies, but Apogee has always enjoyed a stellar reputation for sonic quality with its converters and mic pres and low latency drivers, and the Element 24 lives up to their rep in my opinion. The integration with Logic Pro X is terrific. At this price point, I do not see how anyone could go wrong with the Element series as an interface for now and for the future with Mac computers.”
