More Flexibility For Ensemble


As previewed in our NAMM show coverage, Apogee Electronics Corporation has this week released the Stand-Alone Mode firmware for Ensemble, Apogee's digitally controlled, multi-channel audio interface. Stand-Alone Mode allows Ensemble to function without being connected by FireWire to a Macintosh computer.
Betty Bennett, CEO of Apogee Electronics told us, "We are very pleased to announce the availability of Stand-Alone Mode for Ensemble. Given the flexibility the firmware update will offer, professionals now have the power to choose how and where they want to use their Ensemble."
Ensemble's Stand-Alone Mode At A Glance:
  • With Stand-alone mode, control panel, routing and low latency mixer settings need only to be configured in Maestro once, at which point the settings remain operational despite the absence of a host computer. All front panel controls remain active.
  • Ensemble may be used in a wide variety of new configurations, including conversion between analog and optical and/or S/PDIF coax.
  • Changes to routing or settings in Maestro still require connectivity to a Macintosh computer.
