The Apogee Story
Apogee initially made its name with special anti-aliasing filters that solved many of the early problems associated with digital audio. Later, Apogee’s complete conversion systems pushed the envelope of digital audio quality and established Apogee as a key innovator in the field of professional digital audio. Today, Apogee converters and audio interfaces are regarded as the reference standard in the audio industry.
Now with its latest products JAM and MiC, designed especially for Apple’s iPad, iPhone and GarageBand software, Apogee continues to be at the forefront of recording technology. Apogee’s mission is to build products that offer ultimate sound quality, innovative design and unparalleled value to all music creators from the aspiring artist to the discerning audio professional.
Defining the art of digital audio since 1985
Apogee was born out of an innovation that vastly improved the quality of audio recording.
In 1985 Apogee founders developed technology that addressed the inherit brittleness and distortion heard on the new listening medium of the day, compact discs (CDs). Apogee’s unique 924 and 944 anti-aliasing filters were used in high-end Sony and Mitsubishi digital recording systems to make the CD format sound warmer and more like analog. These Apogee products were important factors in the acceptance and acceleration of early digital recording and forever established Apogee as a leader in the field.
Apogee continues to innovate with technologies and products that push the envelope. From the groundbreaking 924 and 944 filters to leading the studio-quality home recording revolution with Duet and Ensemble to MiC and JAM, the first pro products for iOS recording, Apogee creates the cutting-edge tools artists, audio professionals and audiophiles love and trust.
