Update For Apogee Element Audio Interfaces


Buying Choices

Apogee has announced the availability of a new software update for their Element Control App for Mac and iOS, designed specifically for their Element Thunderbolt audio interfaces. The software update offers Element users a new Talkback feature that lets you use your Mac's Built-in microphone, or any Coreaudio input device such as Apogee MiC, to communicate with your artist through their headphones. Here's more information in Apogee's own words...

The new software update also provides compatibility between all Element audio interfaces and the Apogee Control hardware remote accessory. With Apogee Control, you gain lightning access to input and output levels using the large Symphony-inspired Control knob and 3 control knob focus buttons, plus immediate access to a wide range of functions using the 8 user-configurable buttons. Apogee Control Hardware Remote connects directly to your Mac using a simple USB cable.
