“…[ONE] provides a lot of flexibility, great sound from instruments and microphones plugged into it, and good voice quality from a device that isn’t designed to work only as a microphone.”
“…the ONE is really a unit that is full of surprises. The mic alone makes the products value exceed its price and I would even pay the full asking price just to get a mic that sounded that sweet. Apogee really pulled out all of the stops to make sure that your captured sound doesn’t sound tinny or compressed and that was the feature that amazed me the most.”
“This is a no brainer if you spend a lot of time in a personal home studio and efficiency is important to you. You will save a lot of time by eliminating all the hands on work you would normally have to do to start, stop, and resume recording in your workspace. The ability to change the tone of your guitar on the fly further simplifies the recording process.”
“It was a joy to work Logic using GiO, as well as to perform onstage with the controller, a Mac- Book Pro, one guitar, and two cables—which all fit into a large gig bag.”
“The Apogee GiO makes guitar recording seamless. It allows you to control recording functions, preset changes, plug-ins, playback and loop back features. Gone are the days of running across the room to hit record or pause after you nail your guitar solo.”
“…helps keep your mind on the music instead of the engineering. For those using Logic and Mainstage 2 in live performance, having a pedalboard like this is almost a necessity.”
“It provides fuss-free control over things guitarists want when laying tracks in Logic or GarageBand.”
“The Symphony preamps are clean and clear, with great dynamics. They easily hold up to (or surpass) far more expensive standalone mic preamps. And, of course, the conversion quality is totally top notch. The system was rock solid. I had nary a glitch or hiccup during hours and hours of sessions.
Next, I moved the Symphony to my home studio and connected it to a Symphony 64 card in my Mac Pro. I used it for mixdowns and overdubs. Once again, it was completely rock solid. There was never a problem with latency, and the sound quality was crystal clear, full, and transparent.
If you’re looking for the best, most flexible converter/interface available, then you need the Apogee Symphony. It simply doesn’t get better than this!”
