Tell your folks to set an extra place at the table when you bring home the One this weekend. Sure to be your faithful companion, the Apogee One audio interface for iOS and Mac is all-inclusive, packing an XLR input with pro-quality mic preamp, 1/4" input for your guitar or bass, Apogee A/D converters, and even an internal microphone for capturing quick demos. Whether you record at home or on the go, this pocket interface has just what you need to create polished recordings on your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and more. It's great for when you want to travel light.

An Extension of Your Apple Gear

The Apogee One audio interface packs its own condenser microphone, so you can capture interviews, Podcasts, song ideas, vocals -- you name it -- with point-and-shoot ease. Even better, the included mic clip makes it easy to position it any which way on a microphone stand. If you want to connect your own external mic, no problem -- use the One's breakout cable to hook up a microphone to the XLR input. You can also connect an electric guitar, bass, or acoustic guitar with pickup to the One's 1/4-inch instrument input for direct recording.

Transparent, Detailed Recording

The ONE lets you record a single XLR microphone, or the 1/4" input plus the built-in mic in two-channel mode, all with 96 kHz/24-bit AD/DA conversion. Likewise, the One puts your iPhone in touch with seamless click-free transitions, thanks to its two built-in microphone preamps with a wide gain range of 0 to 63 dB. Dial in your desired levels using the controller knob on the audio interface or from within the Maestro software, and you'll be rewarded with low noise and articulate, detailed sound. You can use the One with dynamic, condenser, or ribbon microphones.

Sounds About Right

Not just an audio interface, the Apogee One serves as your pocket headphone amp and DAC as well, transforming the sound output from an iOS device or Mac from acceptable to awesome. Listen to music from your iTunes library, check out Spotify's latest tracks right on your iPhone, monitor mixes and tracks from Garageband or another Mac-based DAW, work with your favorite iPad apps, and more. The One works with any Core Audio-compatible app on iOS or Mac.

ONE's mic pres are suitable for all dynamic, condenser or ribbon microphones, allowing you to capture any sound without compromise.

iPad puts you in touch with your creativity

Interacting with iPad to make music is like playing an instrument. In fact, some apps like Apple's GarageBand turn your iPad into a guitar or virtual instrument. Whether you are moving faders on a mixer, adjusting software parameters, or editing a waveform, iPad's multi-touch interface is a more hands on environment and superior to mouse clicks or track pad swipes.

With multi-track recording DAWs like GarageBand and Auria, synths and drum machines like Animoog and DM1, utilities and guitar effects like Audiobus and JamUp Pro, the music creation offering for iPad is vast and varied.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very Satisfied With Apogee One"
Overall: I preciously owned the first generation Apogee One for three years before purchasing this one. After contacting Apogee support to get an explanation from them how to utilize the instrument channel I've had no problems and am very pleased. Apogee Rocks ! My next purchase will probably be an Apogee Quartet.
Style of Music: Ambient, R&B, Reggae, Funk, Jazz, and Electronic.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
