Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt
Available on backorder
"Ensemble Thunderbolt represents a sizable investment compared to some other interfaces with similar I/O counts, but you get a lot for your money. This versatile piece of hardware could easily function as the sole piece of outboard gear in your studio, because it handles not just the functions of an audio interface with eight mic preamps, but also a monitor controller and a high-quality guitar DI and reamping box. When you factor in the vaunted Apogee sound quality, super low latency, Thunderbolt bandwidth, and the flexible and generous I/O, it starts to look like one heck of a deal." - Electronic Musician
"Apogee's preamp reputation is second to none; this interface sounds sumptuous and there's no doubt that it will turn the heads of guitar-led producers as much as those requiring more 'regular' microphone and line inputs via its neat and well thought- through re-amping capabilities." - FutureMusic
"If you're keeping score, this one box can be an 8-channel analog tracking device (with many more inputs available on the digital side), a full-featured monitor controller complete with talkback, a reamplification box with not one but two sets of outputs, and a high-fidelity playback and mixing device where you can loop hardware processors in and out of your DAW... all with flexible routing in the Maestro software. "Impressive" doesn't begin to cover it." - Recording Magazine
