Apogee Electronics has released a new software update for its Element Control App for Mac and iOS, designed specifically for the Element Thunderbolt audio interfaces.
The upgrade provides Element users with a new Talkback feature that lets them use a Mac’s built-in microphone – or any Coreaudio input device such as Apogee MiC – to communicate with artists through headphones.
It also offers compatibility between all Element audio interfaces and the Apogee Control hardware remote accessory. Control is designed to deliver fast access to input and output levels using the large Symphony-inspired Control knob and three control knob focus buttons, as well as immediate access to a wide range of functions using the eight user-configurable buttons.
Apogee Control Hardware Remote connects directly to a Mac using a simple USB cable. Apogee Control is sold as a separate accessory and is now available from authorised Apogee dealers worldwide for $195.
The Element software update is now available via Apogee’s website to all Apogee Element users.
