A software update announced by Apogee offers Element interface users a new Talkback feature that lets you use your Mac’s built-in microphone, or any Core Audio input device, to communicate with an artist via headphones.
The new software update also provides compatibility between all Element audio interfaces and the Apogee Control hardware remote accessory. With Apogee Control, you gain lightning access to input and output levels using the large Symphony-inspired Control knob and three control knob focus buttons, plus immediate access to a wide range of functions using the eight user-configurable buttons. Apogee Control Hardware Remote connects directly to your Mac using a simple USB cable. Apogee Control is sold as a separate accessory and is now available from Apogee dealers for US$195.
