The Apogee Element 88 is a true game-changer!
“The Apogee Element 88 is a true game-changer. Despite owning a collection of top-level preamps and other outboard gear, I find myself frequently using Element’s onboard preamps for a reliably massive and honest sound. It’s true to life, just warmer. The intuitive layout of Apogee Control’s GUI has instantly streamlined my workflow at tracking which suits both me and my clients. The unit itself is constructed like a beast and I smile every time I look at it — not a single knob or digital display to ever fail on me, and I feel totally at ease bringing the unit around for location work. As expected, setup was a total breeze and the deep integration with my Mac and with Logic is worth about a million bucks to me. ”

Element 24 Customer Review
“I purchased Element24 to replace my old rosetta-Big Ben combo, I thought I was settling for a slightly lesser converter but boy I was so wrong! Don’t be fooled by the price, Element 24 is one hell of a device and for the price-point it’s really silly cheap. The only workaround in this unit is the almost-nihilistic front panel, they don’t compromise with the AD/DA, and you should check out the headphone amps, bloody stellar! Usually other manufacturers overlook this section, but not Apogee.
Sound wise, obviously it has that Apogee sound that people love dearly, compared to my mastering DAC from another company, I dare say that Apogee is musical, while my mastering DAC is critical, I need musical converters to inspire me from the get go. Oh well, I guess I’m bound to this company for life, LOL.”

Thank you Apogee for a marvelous piece of gear!
“I have used my Element 24 for a couple of weeks now and I am very satisfied with everything about it. I absolutely love the software and its “easy to understand layout” no problems for me at all. Just working. The preamps and the way they response to anything i put in there sounds fantastic even if i push them really hard. My money well spent and if it gets stolen I will buy a new unit as soon as the music store opens.”

Apogee was the best studio move I’ve ever made
“Clear and full preamps. Detailed and articulate sound that’s also astonishingly smooth — there’s no frequency smearing here, nor congested low mids or abrasive upper mids. I have yet to play through a better hi-Z instrument/bass DI. My Duet 2 was very good, and the Element is even better.
I came back to Apogee after owning an interface from another company; I loved my Duet 2 but had wanted to have an interface that supported DSP. The other interface, while costing four times the amount of the Duet, just didn’t sound as good.
Coming back to Apogee was the best studio move I’ve ever made. The Element’s sound is so clear and yet is in no way clinical or sterile… I can only describe it as full, smooth, balanced and musical. Outstanding.”

Element 88 Customer Review
“The mic preamps are the usual high-quality from Apogee: very clean and plenty of low-noise gain, but now I have more of them. At first I was concerned about not having any physical control knobs or switches, but I found the Control software is very well designed; you simply hop from one channel to another with the left-right arrow keys, and adjust the mic gain in 1 dB increments using the up-down arrow keys. Very simple, efficient, and precise. Or, you can control mic gain directly from within Logic. As a result, the Element 88 takes up even less space on my cramped workspace desk than the Duet – since I never need to touch it, I keep it on a shelf underneath my desk. Awesome!”

A benchmark that’s hard to beat
“Apogee Element series removes the latency issue when playing guitar with amp emulation software. Combine Apogee’s super high quality pre-amp circuits and easy to use mixer software and you have a benchmark that’s hard to beat. I use a lot of different audio interfaces in my work and I can honestly say that I was blown away by the performance of the Element 24. We recently used the Apogee Element 24 to demonstrate our guitar amp emulation software at a trade show in Germany, we’ll be using the device again at Winter NAMM.

Element 88 customer review
“The first time I plugged Element 88 at my studio, I already felt the sound with exceptional quality, and that’s something I will never give up!! What for me was something liberating, being accustomed to analog equipment, was the fact that Element 88 works perfectly in my workflow even if it has no knobs at all!!! I’ve been using Element 88 live and in the studio and today I no longer see myself having to go to the interface to make adjustments, I think when a product improves the way your work flows, without giving up the sound quality, it’s worth every penny!!!”
The Element 88 is the perfect fit!!!
“The Apogee Element 88 is exactly what I needed. I wanted a simple, streamlined interface with eight built-in mic preamps so I could record my drums, or a combination of other instruments, without having to hook up additional devices—and the Element 88 is the perfect fit.
I’m also digging the Element Control software. Since I normally set levels from my computer anyway, using Element Control makes perfect sense. I love being able to access Element Control from my tablet and smartphone—that’s especially handy when I’m positioned a little too far from the computer.
Most importantly, the Element sounds great. The preamps are among the best I’ve used. And the output quality is excellent, just as it is with all my Apogee products. I’m very happy with the purchase.”

Works Great with No Issues so Far
“Great product, I use it every single day and have yet to have an issue”
Apogee Element 46 / Controller
“Sound quality, hardware / software control, ergonomics of having the controller anywhere, ease of use, and dependability, all add up to a stellar experience for me. The price just makes it one of the best purchases I’ve made in years. NO buyers remorse for me for the Apogee Element!!”
Dennis Kim from Hawaii
What an Interface!!!!! No frills just great sound!!!!!
“I personally am not someone who needs tons of bells and whistles in his interface. What I do want is the cleanest and best preamps I can find for a reasonable price. If that is what you are looking for…this is the interface for you. Pair it up with the Apogee remote, and you have an amazing mobile recording studio in the quality that only Apogee can provide. I have used other brands in the past, but I am proud to say the only interface that I have been perpetually loyal to is Apogee. The software integration and quality of sound make it a sure winner!!!!!”
Matthew T from Boston, MA
Wow — Yes, Thank you APOGEE!
“I’ve worked on SSL, Neve, API, and Focusrite consoles in major studios. I’m no longer in the music business, but I wanted a little home set up to make some music, and listen to music….This thing sounds amazing!
4 decent mic pres / great instrument and line inputs, two great main outputs, awesome conversion, two FANTASTIC headphone outs. This box complements the Focal Alpha 50s well. Such a simple little setup and I feel like I’m in a recording studio again, it sounds like a mini console, the mute and dim features sound like an SSL – and the element control software feels like it might be intuitive.
In this budget, for my purpose I’m happy to sacrifice buttons and features for SOUND QUALITY, after all as far as I recall that is the purpose of this stuff.”
