Apogee announced the Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge, a 64 channel interface for connecting Apogee converters to any Thunderbolt equipped Mac computer. For the first time, the Symphony I/O can be paired with the speed and bandwidth of Intel’s ThunderBolt technology for more studio power.
Capable of up to 64 channels of input and output at sample rates up to 192kHz, Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge delivers impressive channel counts at unprecedented speeds for a latency and hassle free recording experience. Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge will also connect Apogee’s X-Symphony equipped AD-16X, DA-16X and Rosetta Series converters to Thunderbolt Macs for legacy compatibility. Existing users of these devices will simply need to update to the most current software/firmware available on Apogee’s website before connecting to ThunderBridge.
