From The New York Public library to a Masonic temple (and just about everything in between), PBS’s nationally televised series Live from the Artists Den features intimate performances that showcase high-profile artists in non-traditional and often historic concert settings.
The TV series that features intimate music performances from high-profile artists is now using Apogee Symphony I/O as its exclusive recording interface.
Now in its sixth season, the Apogee’s Symphony I/O recording platform has been used to capture acts including Adele, Mumford and Sons, Soundgarden, Sara Bareilles and Ed Sheeran.
The recording rig used by the Artists Den features 64-channels of Apogee’s award-winning Symphony I/O AD/DA conversion, built-in Symphony I/O microphone preamps and an Apogee Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge, an interface which allows Symphony I/O to be connected to a MacBook Pro through a single Thunderbolt cable. All converters, mic preamps and MacBook Pro are mounted in a single 24-unit rack for a remarkably small footprint, making it the undeniable solution for the ever-changing landscape of the Artists Den performances.
"For years, Apogee's Symphony I/O has delivered the best sounding live recordings of our TV shows," says Mark Lieberman, creator and executive producer of Live from the Artists Den. "We are thrilled to collaborate with their team to deploy their state of the art mobile recording system to ensure a superior audio experience for our television audience."
