Let’s take a look at three albums on this week’s Billboard 200 created by today’s influential women and Apogee Users.
Apogee has taken a unique design approach to their built-in mic preamps to achieve the best performance of any audio interface. Apogee’s Advanced Stepped Gain Architecture™ features a circuit that is dynamically optimized at different gain settings to provide superior bandwidth, ultra low noise and nonexistent distortion across an unprecedented gain range of 0-75 dB.
Whether it’s the artist themselves or an engineer along the way, Apogee has had their hand in helping create many of the radio hits you hear today.

The idea of having additional horsepower available via external DSP to run whatever plugins you want might seem like an ideal solution for many modern recording engineers. However, computers have become extremely powerful and plugin developers are constantly improving their software to be more CPU efficient. The combination of these two things means that today’s computers can handle more audio plugins than ever before. So do you really need external DSP?
