Professional audio interface for Mac-based Pro Tools HD and USB workstations with complete expandability to Apogee's many configurations, including a preamp module, PCIe and Thunderbolt connectivity, as well as up to 32 Channels of I/O.

Apogee Symphony I/O is a modular multi-channel audio interface featuring premium AD/DA conversion and world-class microphone preamps. Designed to deliver professional sound quality for audio recording, mixing and mastering on a Mac, Symphony I/O is the ultimate music production centerpiece for any modern studio.

8- Channel Mic Preamp Module Included
This configuration of the Symphony I/O comes with the The Mic Preamp Module, which upgrades the functionality of any Analog I/O Module by adding mic preamps to the existing line inputs.  A direct connection between the Mic Preamp Module and the Analog I/O Module inserts a mic preamp stage before the line inputs.

Symphony I/O, the highest end
Symphony I/O builds upon the award-winning design approaches of Apogee’s X-Series and Rosetta Series converters, the Big Ben master clock and the Trak2 mic preamps. It also refines and updates these proven designs with fewer but more advanced components while optimizing their performance with efficient power distribution. These enhancements allow audio to travel through less circuitry, offering lower converter latency, more accurate clocking and even more transparency and clarity in your recordings.

Legendary Sound Quality
Symphony I/O is the culmination of 25 years of Apogee’s award-winning design experience. Using the most advanced components available, Apogee engineers created an extremely efficient circuit and power design resulting in a significant improvement in audio clarity and transparency over any previous Apogee product.

Complete Compatibility
Symphony I/O is simple to set up and easy to use. Connect it to any Apple workstation; MacBook, iMac or Mac Pro via USB, Pro Tools HD or you can connect via Symphony PCI or Thunderbolt with Apogee's Symphony 64/Thunderbridge interface, also available at Sam Ash.
