Apogee Element 88

Apogee’s Element 88 is a Thunderbolt audio I/O box made for creating music on your Mac. Element 88 takes the best of cutting-edge Apogee gear like Symphony I/O Mk II, Ensemble Thunderbolt and Groove and puts it into a simple form factor. With streamlined hardware features and advanced software control, Element 88 delivers the best sound quality of any 8 IN x 8 OUT audio interface in its price class. Ideal for the producer, engineer or musician, Element 88 gives you all the I/O you need to record drums or a full band.

Analog to Digital Conversion
A high-quality A/D converter is critical for capturing every detail of your recordings into your computer. The Element series features some of the best Apogee A/D conversion. Recording thru an Element gives you 32-bit A/D conversion processing, which minimizes unwanted noise and ensures you’ll capture every detail of the performance.

Microphone Preamps
Whether you are recording powerful drums, dynamic vocals or delicate strings, you need a premium mic preamp to capture the finest details of the performance. The Element Series mic preamps feature Apogee’s Advanced Stepped Gain Architecture™. This analog circuit is designed to dynamically optimize across a gain range of 0-75dB to provide superior bandwidth and low distortion.

Digital to Analog Conversion
With a high-quality D/A converter, you will hear more definition in each track and virtual instrument. This clarity makes it easier for you to make precise adjustments and achieve the ideal balance when mixing your music. When you listen to you sessions thru an Element, tracks will blend more harmoniously and mixing will be easier. The high end will sound crisp and clear and the low end will be tight and well defined.

An audio interface relies on a clock source like an orchestra relies on a conductor. A digital audio clock provides a timing signal to all the parts of a digital audio system so that each part of the AD/DA process may be synchronized. Element has its own built-in clock source and provides professional Word Clock IN and OUT for syncing with other digital audio gear. Use Element as the master clock to take advantage of Apogee’s superior built-in clocking technology.

Thunderbolt Connectivity
The Element Series Thunderbolt driver offers the same low-latency performance (1.41 ms round-trip) and rock-solid stability as Ensemble Thunderbolt. Apogee's custom driver uses less of your computer's CPU power with the help of Direct Memory Access (DMA) technology. This allows you to run more plugins and monitor through your DAW at a low buffer setting. Element's low latency driver means you don't have to choose between power and speed, even when your session requires a higher buffer setting.

Control the Elements
Element 88 is built to be controlled by a powerful software eco-system. With the Element series you have more control options than ever before.

• Element Control App for Mac
Access all I/O controls and settings for your Element hardware with Element Control, Apogee’s software control application for Mac. Use the app to select your input type, adjust input/output levels, configure up to 5 different low-latency mixers and more. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to quickly select any input or output and adjust the level.

• Element Essentials Windows
With Element Control’s Essentials window, you’ll see just the hardware settings you need in a form that requires minimal screen space. Move the Essentials window under, over or to the side of your DAW window for lightning access and total control. Your workflow will be uninterrupted as you keep your focus on the computer screen.

• Element Control Mobile for iOS
Element Control Mobile for iOS provides you with wireless control of the hardware settings included in the Element Essentials Window. Download the iOS App from the App store to your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

• Apogee Control Hardware Remote (Sold Separately)
Sometimes, it just feels right to have hardware control at your fingertips - we know, we pioneered this approach with Apogee Duet. With the Apogee Control hardware remote, you have 8 buttons and a control knob that you can configure to control a wide range of settings. Apogee Control Hardware Remote connects directly to your Mac using a simple USB cable. (Sold Separately)

• Logic Pro X integration
When you’re using Logic Pro X, you can set Element input settings like gain, input source and more directly with Logic’s Channel Strip, for the ultimate integrated system. Element’s I/O settings are saved with each Logic session, for instant and effortless recall.

Combine the Elements
Element 24, 46 and 88 are built to work together. Connect any two Elements directly to a Thunderbolt port on your computer and increase the number of Analog I/O in your recording system. When using multiple Elements, the Optical I/O is for the low latency mixer internal bussing.
