Well, that's a surprise!

Apogee abandoned PC support on their interfaces many years ago - I wonder what changed their mind? :beamup:

Maybe they're masochists and fancy some mud wrestling with Windows 10! :lol:

Well, probably increasing the market potential with very little cost. Nowadays a Windows 10 system is just as easy to use for audio as any apple, and the price/performance ratio is such that there's a big chance the Windows market will, in time, increase quite a bit. It'd be foolish to keep out of a potentially large market when the cost to access it is very small..

I notice the Ensemble and Elements kit isn't mentioned, maybe that's downstream. I've always thought that the only reason Apogee would go Mac only is if Apple sweetened the deal in some way and maybe that is coming to an end. Disclaimer: no idea at all if that's true, just hypothesis.

Be aware, Windows bods, Apogee have a track record of abandoning kit if it becomes convenient to do so.

looks like they've done it only for USB interfaces?
