    Introducing The Element Series by Apogee with three all new interfaces: Element 24, Element 46 and Element 88. Apogee’s Element Series is an innovative Thunderbolt audio I/O product family made for creating music on the Mac. The Element Series takes the best of cutting-edge Apogee gear like Symphony I/O Mk II, Ensemble Thunderbolt and Groove and puts it into a portable and simple form factor. With streamlined hardware features and advanced software control the Element series delivers the best sound quality of any mobile Thunderbolt audio interface. Ideal for the producer, engineer or musician, The Element Series offers all of the I/O necessary to record, and produce anything anywhere.

    Element 46 is great for any collaborating musician recording at home, on the go or in a small project studio. With 4 analog inputs (including 4 world-class mic preamps), 2 headphone outputs and stereo speaker outputs, Element 46 is the perfect upgrade from an entry level audio interface.

    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 through an Element ensures you will minimize unwanted noise and maximize the signal quality. Your tracks will sound amazing and mixing your project will be easier.

    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 your sessions through 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.

    CLOCKING

    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 incredible low-latency performance (1.41 ms round-trip) and rock-solid stability. 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.
