Getting Started with Symphony Desktop
The maximum numbers of individual plugins that can run on the DSP depends on which plugins you are using and the sample-rate.
The Symphony Desktop Control software is always free. The Symphony Desktop also comes with the Symphony ECS Channel Strip plugin, Clearmountain’s Spaces, and Apogee Alloy Mic Preamp Emulation that is also free. All other plugins have a Trial period where you can test them out. Licenses for plugins you like can be purchased from your local Dealer or the Apogee webstore.
Many of these features will become available as we roll out new releases. You can see our Feature Release Schedule here: https://apogeedigital.com/support/symphony-desktop#schedule
