We were suitably impressed by the Element Thunderbolt audio interfaces in our April 2017 review. Reviewer Mark Wherry noted the audio quality, which is on a par with Apogee’s more expensive Ensemble interface but at a much lower price because control is afforded via a software control panel rather than hardware.
Now, until August 15, Apogee are also bundling their Apogee Control for free with Element 88 purchases. The Apogee Control is a desktop hardware controller with a big Symphony I/O Mk II inspired encoder knob and 8 configurable buttons that give you access to dozens of user assignable functions, making set up and control of your Element 88 simple and intuitive. The Apogee Control hardware remote connects directly to your Mac using a simple USB cable.
“This is an excellent opportunity for customers on a budget to make a significant sound quality upgrade in their studio,” commented Sean McArthur, Apogee’s Director of Marketing. “Element 88 on its own is the best sounding 8 channel Thunderbolt interface under USD $1500… under USD $2500 really. When you add the Apogee Control remote (USD $199 value) you have a premium multi-channel recording setup with desktop hardware control that is as intuitive and familiar as Duet but infinitely more customizable. There’s just nothing that comes close to this kind of quality and usability in this price range.”
